    Default 2008 NFL Probowl Rosters

    No Brackett, Marlin Jackson, or Kelvin Hayden. Saturday, Manning, Sanders, Wayne & Addai all make it.

    Brackett should've made it over Lewis. And they need to do away with the FB position in the Pro Bowl, it's barely used anymore. Use the spot for a Wild Card player or something.

    I agree with the FB being a ridiculous position to award a Probowl roster spot to. How many times did the Colt's employ a FB. Only a handful of games was Luke Lawton on the field (on offense.) He was even waived at one point.

    No Jaguars made it, that's pretty surprising. Missing games cost Mathis and Stroud I assume.

    Wow, John Clayton just pointed out there's ZERO players from the NFC South. I guess Brees is the only guy you could argue off the top of my head.

    I'm disappointed that Gary Brackett didn't get in also, but not surprised. He had a great year but is the overshadowed part of this defense. Without Gary, we don't have anywhere near the defensive season we had.

    I hope the defensive guys that got stiffed play with extra motivation in the playoffs.

    I noticed, too that Sean Taylor made it in the NFC.

    Brackett got robbed. Hayden and Jackson had very good seasons, but I guess I can't argue with the CB's that were selected.

    Fred Taylor should've made it over Addai, honestly.
    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    How do you figure? Fred's got better rush yardage numbers, but not significantly. Joe's got about 7 times the receiving yardage and 10 more TDs.

    Taylor should have made it over Parker.

    More of a sentimental thing, he's had a great run of late. *shrug* You can't really go wrong with the choices they made, but it wouldve been nice to see Fred go at least once.

    It's sad that Dallas Clark never gets to go. The tight ends in the conference are all certainly deserving, but Clark is just so vital, and so good, that it'd be nice to see him get more recognition.

    Looks like Fred Taylor will probably be going after all, with the Willie Parker leg break.

    Just when I needed Dallas' sterling fantasy league play, he decided to put up some terrible numbers for me. I'm sure the voters took that into account!
