    Re: Will Burleson make the pro bowl this year?

    I agree,the pro bowl is built more on past rep, than present production.Give him another year or so.

    Re: Will Burleson make the pro bowl this year?

    No. I am a nate fan just as much as anyone else but i doubt nate will make and here are my reasons.

    1. Nate is not a flashy guy and he doesn't have a big mouth like TO, Randy or Joe horn
    2. There are too many better recievers in the NFC like T.Owens, J.Walker, J.horn, Roy williams (who is gonna be twice as good as last year since C.Rogers is coming back) and Mussin Mohamed.
    3. Fans vote for the pro bowl and fans vote the same people in every year ie, brett farve.

    Screw who makes the pro bowl and who doesn't, I'm hoping we can put together a balanced offense and good defensive play leading us to the promise land this year 'cause the only bowl that matters is the one that'll be in Detroit, what matters more than that is if we're celebrating a win.

    nate burleson has to want the ball more like randy moss did. he has to be selfish and i don't think that will happen. i won't be surprised to see him get 1000 yards and 10 td's but it won't be enough to get to the probowl. i also see mike williams/ braylon edwards becoming the #1 receiver by the 2006 season.

    And to most people; Who is Nate Burleson?
    Right now, that is what people are thinking. But people also can't ignore stats, and vote based on stats over actual quality of play.

    I bet Nate will get at least 80 catches if he can stay healthy, with at least 1000 yards and 7 TDs. Depending on other receiver's stats, he should make the Pro Bowl. Just project his stats while Moss was out last year over an entire season, and that is Pro Bowl caliber numbers.


    I m like a Ja Rule poster, cause I'm off the wall.

    Re: Will Burleson make the pro bowl this year?

    I love Nate as much as the next, but as stated before...people vote for the Pro-Bowl.

    The NFC (as is the AFC) is very deep with Pro Bowl recievers, and Nate is right along with them in ability, but he's not as popular as many other NFC recievers, though he is quickly gaining recognition.

    Give it a few years and Nate will be there...

    But really, I don't care if he makes Pro-Bowl as long as he's producing and helping us win. Great players get snubbed all of time, it happens. That doesn't mean they're not one of the best.

    Hey hey hey, watch what you say there. Pro bowl is big for us down here and i want nate to be in it since im most likely going to next years pro bowl.


    I say he makes it if he does well and the media gives him a lot of exposure. The media somewhat has a lot to do with getting to the pro bowl or not.
