Default Don't be surprised if Michael Turner doesn't make the Pro Bowl.

At this point Michael Turner deserves to be one of the 3 RB's on the NFC's Pro Bowl team in Febuary. That's not even debateable. However, that doesn't mean he'll make it. Here's why:

-First of all there are 2 locks in the NFC: Portis and Peterson. They will be on the NFC Pro Bowl team without a doubt.

-Turner is 3rd in the NFC in rushing yards and first in the NFL in rushing TD's, BUT look at three other candidates: Brandon Jacobs, Matt Forte, Marion Barber. All three of these guys play in bigger media markets and stand a good chance of getting more fan votes. Jacobs is the biggest threat because he's having a good year for a great team. Barber will get Cowboy fanboy votes and Forte is a long shot who will get the benefit of Chicago votes.

Thoughts?

I disagree. Turner is electrifying to watch. He is a beast. He is the one that lights up the TV screen when we are watching the highlights from Sunday. Barber is garbage. Forte is young. I think Jacobs would be the biggest competition for him.

Good luck this year Falcons! For once I'm actually rooting for you guys to make it pretty far.

I dont know what you're disagreeing to, maybe you read it wrong. The man is absolutely right. Probowls are not done by performence but by votes, and Turner probably wont get in because of that.

it's ok because the Pro Bowl is a joke and all real football fans know Turner is a BEAST! plus being behind AD and Portis makes it tough. Especially with other studs in the NFC at RB.

Like seriously, what? 11? cowboys made the pro bowl last year? I know it's fun to see your boys in Hawaii, but remember, the Giants only had one last year!

A little of topic, but with Matty Ice, the burner and norwood as a nice duo, Jenkins and White, you guys are looking good for the future. Carolina is having, IMO, a flukey year so this will be tough for the Falcons to get to the playoffs this year, but you guys are a team to be reckoned with down the road. very nicely done turnaround I must say.

Preciate it man, we are enjoying it as well. Honestly I couldnt ask for more as we control our own destiny to get in the playoffs and possibly win the division. We got a struggling Chargers team on the road, Saints again, a tough Vikings game on the road, Tampa in the dome and a worthless Rams team to end it.

If you look at the those games we should at worst be 9-7, w/ the chance of being 11-5.

Greatly put on how pro bowl is a joke. It's just a big popularity contest. Same with any other sport. Yao Ming could make a probowl of the practice squad if he played football.

If he doesn't then I will lose all respect for the Pro Bowl. The little I have left that is after someone like Marion Barber made it last year

I think he has earned it this year, but I would'nt be suprised if he didn't make it either. Same situation with my team.
