Are you telling me Robbie "Good As" Gould doesn't have a shot? If he doesn't, then the selection process needs a total revamp!

Why won't the Bears attempt to bring in a dominant playmaker like Ocho Cinco or TJ Houshmansjhsjhs? You know Ocho Cinco is talented, but has some drama. But wouldn't a guy like him thrive in a situation where he is being brought in to the the "guy"?

Why not take a chance on something like this? He is entertaining and amazingly talented..

It's nice to see I'm not the only one that thinks AB's name should be in the mix. I also think Charles Tillman should be talked about.

I have to agree, Briggs has been our most consistent player. My faith in the defense has been maintained by keeping Briggs out on the field. Let Briggs lead our defense!

It has become painfully obvious that Urlacher is at the end of his career (such as it was) and that the Pro Bowl shouldn't even be an option anymore. I'm so glad the Bears signed him to an extension! Isn't it comforting to know that we have a couple more years of declining play, stupid comments and hearing about legal wrangling with his gold-digging stripper baby momma? I'm so excited!!!

Matt Forte is averaging more than 100 total yards per game and has 11 TD's. He has more total yards than Michael Turner......

Mr. Haugh has hit the nail on the head. Maybe he should have mentioned Thomas Jones and Cedric Benson in the article, so the impact Jerry A. has had on the Bears the last 4 seasons could be properly spelled out. We could have drafted a first class receiver instead of Cedric. Why do the Bears continue to insist that having a class receiver is not a priority? I don't get it.

Because the Bears are a "running team". A high powered passing game is beyond the realm of understanding for anyone in Halas hall or the front office. They still think Papa Bear is running the show. Besides Angelo wouldn't know what a good quarterback looked like if he tripped over one. Remember his company line, "We have two good quarterbacks". You be the judge.

Why do people still care about the Pro Bowl? It's just a popularity contest, nothing more. People don't care about who has been better; they simply vote for the big names. The Pro Bowl is a joke, and until the fans either vote based upon merit, or fan voting is eliminated entirely, it will remain a joke.
