Congrats to the two Browns players who made it--they're both awesome athletes. I agree that you should've had at least two more who should've gotten the nod...

I also agree that Alan, Willie, and Troy should not've been chosen--there are others more deserving. While Willie has the most rushing yards, he also have by far the most carries, so it only goes to reason he'd have more. Troy hasn't played much, and when he has played, it hasn't exactly been stellar. I think Alan's playing more not to get hurt than to play at a top level. He also could be showing his age...

I don't agree that Ben shouldn't have been voted in. He has the 3rd highest QB rating in the AFC. Over 101 rating, 66.7% completion, 29 TD passes, possibly the most rushing yards for a QB and one or two he took into the endzone himself... so there was no "favoritism" there, he earned this. This is a career year for him, and that's what the pro-bowl is supposed to be about--individual effort, just like Josh and Braylon.

Yeah, I don't agree with Polomalu making the Pro Bowl. However, both Willie Parker and Ben Roethlisberger deserve to be there. Who cares if Parker has more carries than anybody, that just shows his durability. Big Ben is better than DA in every QB statistic, and he's beaten the Browns twice. DA had a shot to beat the Steelers, but he couldn't manufacture any offense in the 2nd half. If Cleveland comes back to win that game, maybe DA is in the Pro Bowl.

I love Braylon Edwards. He is a class act on an off the field. Cribs is excitement. I enjoy watching him.
Polamalu was voted in because of Respect! He's the best at his position...Players and knowing fans alike know this.
Faneca ? The Steelers O line sure sucks this year, but I have read that this is because Faneca has had to help the new center Sean Mahan.
Ben has definitely earned his spot!
Harrison is also having a career year.
Parker...How can his yardage be ignored? Imagine where he would be if the O line was just a hair above average.

Willie definitely is durable. I read that he already has 320 carries, and he's probably only run OOB on only about 20 (or so) of those, so he's probably been hit at least 300 times. I can't even imagine the beating that his body has taken...it's just that some people don't feel that he should've gotten in because of how it's happened.

I can see both sides of the disagreement, and each side has their own point. But yes--Big Ben deserves this, no question.

this is why no one can stand steeler fan's, you don't get the hint, until someone knock's you out. christ just leave. stop trolling go to a steeler forum. and joe thomas, kellen winslow, steibach, should be in, but there not. within one year the day's of you beating us is done. so you beat up on a team that was pretty much a joke for 7 yrs. whoppie do. thats something to be pround of. typical steeler fan bully people you know you can beat, but when someone squares up with you and knocks you out.:jags,patriots" your run with your tail between your legs and make up excuses.

That's what I was just going to say. This is the link I'm reading this at:
http://www.topix.com/forum/nfl/pittsburgh-ste...

Not hard to see "pittsburgh-steelers " there in the link. If we Steeler fans didn't realize what was going on, we could say that it's the Browns fans trolling in "our" forum lol
