In the AFC, common sense would tell us that Thomas Howard and Kirk Morrison would at least deserve very strong consideration for spots in Hawaii. By stats, neither Larry Johnson nor Ladanian Tomlinson deserve to go.

Way to early for this nonsense and all its going to do is spark love and hate fests for certain players.

I don't think KGB would make it while only being a pass rushing specialist. I don't even think he plays on first or second down.

As for McNabb making it. Hysterical. Maybe if he played the Lions 4 more times this year. I wouldn't even put Osi in yet, although there is less competition at DE than QB.

BrownsTown
10-12-2007, 12:06 PM
People that should be considered for the Browns: Kellen Winslow (pretty much a lock), Cribbs (probable), Steinbach (possible) and Wimbley (unlikely). D'Qwell and Thomas have very very outside chances.

Early, but on a team that had so many pro-bowlers last year (San Diego) the only lock seems to be Gates....only probable one also....

Everyone knows that the pro-bowl is pretty much just a popularity contest. So someone who did just as much if not more will not go, in place a more popular player that did about the same will.

P - Jones (SEA), Lee (SF)


Jones is for St. Louis, not Seattle

I emphasize this because the Bills' punter is the only guy with a shot this year, making it the most important position (although, when is it not?). If Crowell makes some more big plays he could be in consideration, but it's crowded there and I wouldn't give it a shot really.

Yes, KGB shouldn't be allowed to make it because of his role as a specialist. And I do agree that it is too early for this stuff. Sure, speculation isn't always a bad thing, but this is a little too early and on too little action.

I don't know if Winslow is a lock. AFC is LOADED with great TEs (Gonzalez, Gates, Clark and Watson).

Don't get me wrong, Kellen Jr. is among the best, but it's possible the voters may overlook him.

I agree, Gates/Gonzalez have been big names for a long time whereas Kellen is playing in Cleveland... Winslow will need to put up 1,000-1,200 yards as well as somewhere around 8 TDS to catch everyone attention and get into the pro-bowl.

Edwards is just playing amazing right now, almost averaging 100 yards per game and he has 4 TDs...

Right now I could see Chad Johnson, Moss, and Braylon Edwards at the pace all three are going at.

Braylon is a playa, but I don't think he'll make the pro bowl because A) he plays in Cleveland, B) Derek Anderson is his QB, and C) I dunno how long he can keep playing at that pace.

If he can keep putting up the stats he is right now, sure he probably will, but I don't think he will, especially with the human pick machine throwing to him. Plus this is a popularity contest in a league with Randy Moss, Chad Johnson, Marvin Harrison, TJ Howsyourvannila will get votes just because people know them.

I don't know if Winslow is a lock. AFC is LOADED with great TEs (Gonzalez, Gates, Clark and Watson).

Don't get me wrong, Kellen Jr. is among the best, but it's possible the voters may overlook him.

I don't think they will, Gonzalez isn't having a good enough year, and Winslow is looking like he'll clear 1000 yards easy this year. Clark I can see possibly, but when his game is TDs, he'll have dry spell eventually. I think he's caught half of Peyton's TDs this year. That certainly won't keep up.

Watson won't make it. He's averaging 40 yards a game.

Neither will Young, his numbers are awful. Carson Palmer will probably get in assuming he can cut down on his picks.

Ladanian will get in because everyone knows him. I'm sure he'll pick up his game sooner or later also.

I think Jackson, Hobbs and Revis are longshots.

For all intents and purposes, let's just say the vote had to be held today... who do you think would go?

And as for the McNabb thing - yeah, I get he had one great game against the Lions, but who else is there? Kitna? Everyone else is either injured or had horrible games... the NFC's QB's are pretty much sucking wind. Just my .02

You are right about the NFC QBs being very mediocre. But McNabb had one huge game against a terrible defense and 3 very lousy games. After Favre and Romo, I think the third spot would have to be either Manning or Garcia. But it is so damn early, that third spot could be someone else next week.

But it isn't like Barret's product will vary as much as a QB's. He always gets opportunities to make plays and he generally takes advantage of that. He is leading the NFL in tackles for a reason.

You are correct about the actual task behind the thread, but I just feel with the INTs and tackles where they are as well as the recognition that both Howard and Morrison are starting to get around the league, they would find a way in. Do I think they would be starting if voting was made right now? I would say probably not. But at this point, at least one of the guys has to be a backup--the NFL would get them in the Pro Bowl.

Coles has no shot. I would probably take Cotchery over him even though he has yet to get into the endzone.

That being said - neither has the pub or the high powered offense that Wayne, Harrison, Moss or Chad Johnson. Barring a season ending injury, I think those three have it in the bag.

off the top of my head Coles has 300+ yards and 4 touchdowns so if he continues at a pace like that he'll be 1000+ yards and possibly 10+ TDs, which I think MAY qualify him for the 4th WR spot. By the way I did say POSSIBLE

I'll be surprised if Dallas Clark doesn't make a push for his first Pro Bowl selection. He hasn't been the top option on his team like Gates, Gonzalez, and K2, but the contribution and production (receiving and blocking) he's made thus far is Pro Bowl consideration worthy, I would think.

Far from a lock. I think Winslow and Gates make it in unless one gets totally snubbed. Those two definitely deserve the birth at the rate they're going. Both of those guys are on pace for over 1000 yards. Winslow's numbers are even sicker if you take into consideration he's the #2 target behind Braylon Edwards, who is a lock for the pro bowl himself at his rate. 17.2 ypc for Kellen is too much.

Darkhorses: Donald Lee might have a chance in this weak year for NFC Tight End's. Our DT's have a shot: Ryan Pickett is massive in the run, keeps taking double teams. Johnny Jolly and Corey Williams just keep making plays. I think if the voting was absolutely correct they would all make it at least as alternates, honestly.

for the Jaguars...

David Garrard is playing at a probowl level...but even if it continues all season, everyone knows that the Pro bowl is a popularity contest...

MJD-he's off to a better start than last season...

Marcus Stroud and Rashean Mathis are playing at the usual probowl level...

Put Chris Snee in at guard for the NFC. This is the year where people finally realize he's been the best guard in the NFC for three years.

Jared Allen should make it...

And those Raider LBs are athletic and solid dropping back, but they absolutely blow against the run. I mean, they are among the worst LBs I've seen in recent memory trying to be active in the running game. They both got just got clowned last week in San Diego.

I was just thinking about that when I was making my mock. Garrard should be in pro-bowl as a QB with Brady and Peyton. He has definately silenced everyone who believed they would be drafting a QB in the top-10 in the upcoming draft.

I'll be surprised if Dallas Clark doesn't make a push for his first Pro Bowl selection. He hasn't been the top option on his team like Gates, Gonzalez, and K2, but the contribution and production (receiving and blocking) he's made thus far is Pro Bowl consideration worthy, I would think.

how is he as a blocker?

i know he's a great pass catching TE, but I haven't payed alot of attention to his blocking.

Geo

He's doing a good job in that regard thus far, whether he's lined up as a tight end, slot receiver, or out wide.

In fact, I've been highly impressed with the run-blocking of all the receivers/tight ends, it's been excellent as a whole. A big reason why the Colts are currently averaging 142 rushing yards per game.

If the Colts beat the Pats again, he's gonna have to be a big factor in that. I still don't see a player on the Pats who can lineup with him and take him on one on one.

They have the horses to take on Wayne and Harrison, they can neutralize Addai with zones, but I don't see how they can neutralize Clark too.

They definitely have the edge right now but it's not inconceivable to see Donald Lee surpass them statistically.

Geo

Lee would need a considerable statistical advantage to beat out the name power and production of Witten and Shockey.

I wouldn't hold my breath on that front.

barring injury i don't see him even coming close to witten or shockey. Shockey is the best blocking starting te right now, is still putting up good numbers despite not having much of a role in this offense and has the name recognition, and romo is just too comfortable going to witten for his numbers to drop much.

I agree that he will have to put up big-time numbers to beat out Shockey due to how popular Shockey is. Witten, on the other hand, isn't terribly popular and I believe he could be beat out by Lee if he has better statistics. Lee is going to get even more touches now that Bubba Franks is injured, especially in the red zone which means more touchdowns and more recognition. Is Lee better than Witten or Shockey? No. But he's getting a fair amount of opportunities this year and could easily compile a very impressive statline that makes him tough to snub in the weak NFC tight end class.

Right now, Witten has the edge. That could change at any time. All it takes is one or two big games and either guy could jump out to a huge lead. Also, the Green Bay Packers are one of the most popular teams in the league as is evidenced if you look at any online polls concerning the NFL.

Far from a lock. I think Winslow and Gates make it in unless one gets totally snubbed. Those two definitely deserve the birth at the rate they're going. Both of those guys are on pace for over 1000 yards. Winslow's numbers are even sicker if you take into consideration he's the #2 target behind Braylon Edwards, who is a lock for the pro bowl himself at his rate. 17.2 ypc for Kellen is too much.

It will be Gates and Gonzo IMO Gonzo has 38 catches to Winslow's 29 Winslow has more yards but Gonzo has more TD's.

Jared Allen is well on his way.

8 sacks despite the fact that he missed the first 2 games of the season.

Wyndham
10-22-2007, 05:21 AM
Allen's a near lock at this point; the guy who should be noticed more is Derrick Johnson, the best LB in yesterday's KC-Oakland game by a wide margin.

He's the best LB outta that young group, no doubt about that in my mind.

Through 7 games Gonzalez has 42 catches for 506 yards and 3 touchdowns.

That would equal 1,157 yards over 16 games. Gonzalez started off slow with only 71 yards the first two games combined but since then his lowest yardage total is 66 yards and he had two 100 yard games over that span. Gonzalez is picking it up and I guarantee he makes the pro bowl over Kellen Winslow.

Morrison and Howard might have allright stats but the fact is they are part of a crappy run defense and an average at best overall defense. Derrick Johnson makes plays against both the run and pass regularly. I would take him over Howard any day.

Howard has improved a lot against the run and isn't a liability like people say he is. People forget the fact that he had over 100 tackles last year as a rookie behind a good line.

Overall the AFC West has a great group of young linebackers.

True. It's simply a matter of opinion I guess. Derrick Johnson does play the strongside linebacker position which is a position that is hard to put up great stats from. For some reason the Chiefs have stopped blitzing him as much but when he does blitz he gets to the quarterback. I guess they only blitzed him when Jared Allen was out but now that arguably the best DE in the AFC is back we can get more use out of DJ in pass coverage.
