Really?
Thats a name/team selection. 49ers were the team this year where when voters had no idea who to pick they defaulted to the 49er player who was up for selection. Sorry but there were way too many San Fran players on there to take all their selections seriously. Personally I'm starting to think they should take away the fan vote and player vote and shift it over to reporters who watch way to much football as well as former scouts with limited vested interest.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

Pro bowl is a popularity contest, how do Morris and Montgomery not start? I can see Fletcher going against Willis and Bowman being an alternate.

I know he was leading the fan vote but I thought you had to get 2/3 of the votes between players/coaches/fans to get in.

I'm happy for Trent. Alfred Morris shouldn't be an alternate. He should be the starting halfback for the NFC. London should be starting too.

It should be voted on by a panel. Fan voting should completely be removed from the equation.

AP, Lynch, and Morris.
I guess Young didnt make it. Thought he would. Dont know enough about other fullbacks though.

To give the nfl some credit they allow articles on their site to acknowledge Saturdays inclusion is an example why fan voting sucks.

Could never see Stern allowing something like that on nba.com

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

We have the biggest game here in years and people are worried about who and who didn't make the Pro Bowl? This game and the selection process is a joke. Bring on Dallas!

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

Its really not that bad, 90% of the picks make sense to me.
Most really good players don't get selected their first year of high performance anyway....unless you play DE or if you have massive marketing exposure

Morris could break the Redskins all time rushing record with over 1500 yards and is a rookie to boot. I say he should start over Gore who is also a phenomenal RB.

Lol you crazy. I like Morris as much as the next guy, but what he's done pales in comparison to the year AD has had.

One interesting thing I just heard on ESPN is that RG3 is the first rookie qb since Dan Marino to make the original Pro Bowl roster. Take that Cam Newton!

Morris certainly ran hard this year. Sometimes players who make the pro bowl do so because of reputation. Sort of reminds me how former Dallas Cowboys strong safety Roy Williams made it a few times based on his reputation at the time when in fact Sean Taylor deserved to go to the pro bowl.
