    Did you read the article???

    "So we thought it a good idea to come up with our own Pro Bowl teams. Based on conversations with scouts, coaches, players and personnel men -- as well as many of my own eyeball observations -- we have our CBS SportsLine.com Pro Bowl teams.

    There will be no automatic trip to Hawaii for the guys on these lists. Not even a trip to Hoboken for that matter.

    What they can take from it is the satisfaction of knowing that popularity had nothing to do with their names being on these teams."


    I guess I realize that they are not the people who decide who the real pro-bowlers will be! They can speculate and make up their own list, here I will make mine all the Vikings are pro-bowlers, doesn't mean anything! They can survey all the people they want to, but until the ballots are filled out and announced it is all just speculation, and nothing else! And if the Vikes only get one player, so be it. As long as they win the division and go deep in the playoffs, I am a happy camper!
    What we've got here is failure to communicate.

    Re: Sharper only Viking to make Pro Bowl...

    The National TV and Radio Media is very biased to their personal favorites. Most of these media critics admit to watching very few NFL games each week and therefore never watch a lot of players.

    The Pro Bowl is long known to be a media popularity contest and not a well thought out selection of each year's talent.

    Sharper is having an outstanding season but most critics only see the Vikings on Monday Night Football, so they miss his weekly performances.

    I never stated this was the real this, my headline was a little misleading but it was supposed to be so you woulde read. I said it was what CBS thought in my paragraph above.
    *hides from tar and feathering*
    Just thought everyone would like to know what little recognition our players are getting.

    I read it as that CBS was reporting who the Pro Bowl players were; not as who they thought.

    I had a feeling it was Pete Crisco that wrote the article and of course, that's who it ended up being. Don't listen to this guy, he doesn't know his A$$ from a hole in the ground.
    The best part of my day is when I get down on my knees, with my head in my hands, and thank GOD for everything he has given me.

    I imagine by the end of the year that Winfield and P-Will will be in the talks for the pro bowl as well ... I think that Winfield, Sharper, P.Williams and K.Robinson as the returner could all be in Honolulu.

    Yes he does...his A$$ is the hole that is packed with Crisco so that all the other sportswriters who bang him can do it smoothly...the hole in the ground is where his career is going if he keeps making stupid predictions like this last article! :lol:
