I'm always ticked initially, then the reality of it all sets it.

The pro bowl is mostly a popularity contest where a lot of guys make it on name and rep alone.

Being on a winning team will always help your cause too.

I think this could probably work to our advantage. Now guys will have a chip on their shoulder and play at a higher level to prove everyone wrong. Did you guys see what Marcus Washington said today on the WP?

Washington said the downside to making the Pro Bowl was the effect the snub may have on teammates who were not picked. "I know what kind of guys we've got in the locker room. We've got some competitors," Washington said. "Guys that walk around not with chips on their shoulders, but with blocks on their shoulders. I think they're definitely going to take it personal. They're definitely going to raise their game to an even higher level."

Voting for the Pro Bowl has always been unpredictable. Votes by fans, coaches and players each count one-third. Players are prohibited from voting for teammates and coaches can't select their own players.

Most Redskins players couched their disappointment, but the team's cornerback duo was blunt. "I was robbed by someone without a mask," Smoot said, his voice tinged with disappointment. "Quote me."

Springs, who is tied for the team high with four interceptions, declared, "I played better than any cornerback in the league this season."

Redskins players felt this season's omissions were especially egregious. Nine players from the Philadelphia Eagles (13-1) were named to the Pro Bowl -- five on defense, including Jeremiah Trotter, who was released by the Redskins in the offseason. (Philadelphia's list was posted in the Redskins locker room.) "What's Philly's defense ranked?" Pierce asked rhetorically, referring to the Eagles' 10th-ranked defense.

I hope they keep that chip on their shoulders right in to next season.

The Pro Bowl is a joke anyways! Like Matty said, it's more about the names than how they played....I'd rather our guys get rewarded with a Super Bowl victory anyways...
