Only Five Players Make Pro Bowl This Year, Several Snubbed By Voters

After a record-setting 13 players named to last year’s Hawaii bowl, only 5 are making the trip this time around.  Of course there could be some changes before the game is played in February and a few other players may be going as alternates.  The most notable snubs would be QB Tony Romo, who currently holds the highest rating in the NFC and WR Terrell Owens whose numbers suffered quite a bit from the absence of Romo due to injury earlier in the season.

The players named in yesterday’s Pro Bowl Selection show are on offense, Jason Witten, Leonard Davis and Andre Gurode; and on defense, Jay Ratliff and DeMarcus Ware.  These players are certainly deserving of their selections, but it calls into question why players like Terrence Newman and Bradie James were not voted into the fray.   Newman was injured and missed several games, but since his return he has played fantastic with two interceptions against the Giants the day the voting closed.  James led the defense back from a shaky start to lead the team in tackles and record several sacks.  Watch for these players to get into the game as alternates at a later date.
