    Defenses with 3 or more probowlers

    Alright gang, here's my first New topic Posting: After talking with numerous buddies about Mr. Allen coming to town, adding tremedously to our D-Line, (and about how opposing QB's are probably going to let out little girly-screams as soon as the ball is snapped)... we started trying to figure out which D-Lines in the past (both Vikes, as well as all NFL) have had three pro-bowlers at the same time on the line.
    And, has there ever been four on one D-Line?

    We're pretty sure the original Purple People Eaters had a year or two, as well as the Steelers in the 70's.... possibly the Bears in 86 (?)

    But does any Great Football Mind out there have an answer, or can you direct me where to get the answer.

    Timaaae!

    This site has pro bowl rosters back to 1990, but I have no idea where you'd find info before that.

    Re: Defenses with 3 or more probowlers

    Here it is since the merger (alot happened before then because both leagues had pro bowls)
    1970 Vikings (Eller, Page, Larsen)
    1973 Steelers (Greenwood, Greene, White)
    1975 Rams (Youngblood, Olsen Dryer)
    1978 Rams (Youngblood, Jones, Brooks)
    1980 Chargers (Kelcher, Johnson, Dean)
    1991 Eagles (White, Brown, Simmons)
    2008 VIKINGS!! (Allen, K. Williams, P. Williams, R. Edwards)!!

    There you have it from my quick research ... don't think I missed any.

    The Pro Bowl (and even being voted to it) is a joke.

    All Pro is where the money is.

    Being an alternate was a slap in the face.

    Now i have tried again but seem to be retarded.......oh well,

    Eh ... he has had a great career and all, but has NEVER been in the top 5 in rushing or in yards from scrimmage. His best years were 2000 & 2003 ... and Edge, Eddie George and Corey Dillon went in front of him ... and all of them were deserving ... in 2000 and in 2003 he was not even on the same level as Jamal Lewis, Preist Holmes and Clinton Portis.
    I think the Pro Bowl is a pretty good honor ... sure it is not as important as All-Pro, but it still is a fairly big deal. Only three RBs go ... makes it really tough.

    dont think the 86 bears maybe the 85 because after 85 they like vanished from being a good team.
    Too much talent
