The Pro Bowl voting is definitely a farce. A lot of really good players who help their team a lot just dont get the votes, because their name is not a household word.
The media at work again.

Saturday mentioning Sitton has gotten press coverage and of course, ESPN jumps on any story. With Packers banged up Oline, if it weren't Sitton/Lang things would be different. I'm convinced because he's been in the league and was Mannings center there is your explanation, on his own Saturday wouldn't get the press or attention he does. On press days they flock around him in the locker room! Hello, weakest link on the Oline, 30 out of 32 centers and the dude gets press.

I will say this, he is very well liked, respected and a class act and it was good to have him to help EDS along, while he was learning.

Sadly no Eagles players are represented in the Pro Bowl this year.

Antoine Winfield is having the best season of his career and no pro bowl.

I know that Adrian Peterson is a beast...but not one Viking lineman in the Pro Bowl? Are they really that average? If that is the case, than if Peterson doesnt win MVP there needs to be a federal investigation!

And as a Giants fan, I would have liked to have seen safety Stevie Brown make the team since he is second in the league in picks with 8...

The average fan lacks the understanding of football's nuances to properly evaluate offensive lineman.

I am an average fan, but even I know that even the best running backs need good blocking besides being able to pick the holes. And it starts up front.
