Congrats to Seymour, Aso, and Lechler.

I thought Kelly deserved it ahead of seymour, but that's how it goes sometimes. I hope McFadden, Sebass, Z Miller, and Kelly get nods as alternates.

I thought Z Miller got screwed out of it last year as one backed out and H Miller of the steelers got the nod despite that Z Miller was ahead of him in every area of stats.

I wonder if Jon Condo will get the call again as a need player like he did last year.

I hate this popularity contest. That said Glad Lechler got in as I think he was most deserving. Aso and Seymour is good too. But Seymour got in on reputation. MCFadden deserved to be in...but those are the breaks. So did Ford for special teams.

I just realized that Aso doesn't have a pick this season. I thought Tommy Kelly deserved to get in ahead of Seymour, but both did well enough to deserve it. I thought DMac should've got in too, but there were a lot of good AFC RBs this year. Zach Miller should've been in last year and I'd like to see him get a call this year, but last year was kind of screwwy when Heath Miller got the call when Dallas Clark announced he wouldn't play despite Zach Miller having better stats. It doesn't disappoint me as much that Ford didn't get in because it's a lot harder to get in on that kind of position...most returners who make the Pro Bowl are normally KO and Punt returners and that guy from the Titans does both, whereas Ford was just our KO returner. However Ford has had too good of a season to ignore as both a WR and KR.

A non Raider related pick that really ticks me off is that Peyton Manning got in because he's Peyton Manning and I thought Matt Schaub deserved it ahead of him.
