Punter Shane Lechler was the only Oakland Raiders player selected to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday, earning the honor for the third time in his career.

Lechler, who was also selected in 2001 and 2004, leads the NFL with a 49.0 yard punting average and is tops in the AFC with a 41.3 yard net average.

"I am extremely exited about it and the punt team has been outstanding," Lechler said. "They are a fun group to play with and they worked really hard to cover a lot of kicks. The guys really played well. My name is tagged on it but the punt team deserves a lot of the credit too." Read more

I'm happy for Lechler, but I think Tom Howard should be there too at least and maybe Kirk Morrison, but I will guarantee you that if the Raiders had winning team this year both of them would've been there. Maybe one of them will get a late call but early enough to catch a flight to Hawaii

Tom Howard led all linebackers in interceptions and was only LB in the tie for most for TDs this year and with big plays like that, you oughta be in the probowl
