    Winfield named to Pro Bowl

    Winfield named to Pro Bowl

    Vikings cornerback Antoine Winfield has been asked to join the NFC Pro Bowl roster, according to agent Ashanti Webb.

    Winfield, who was selected to the Pro Bowl in 2008 and 2009 but did not go last season because of a foot injury, will accept the invitation and participate in the game next Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

    Well, a trip to Hawaii is not the same as if it was a trip to Dallas.

    3 years in a row now! I love it. I just wish we had some depth at CB so we could play him at safety. He would be one of the best safeties in the league.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Isn't this his 2nd year?

    I stand corrected! On his Wikipedia page, he is listed as a 3x ProBowler (2008,2009,2010). However, the NFC corners for 2008 were Al Harris, Marcus Trufant, and Terrance Newman. Nice catch

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    I just remember him being excited about last year being his first pro bowl, and all the viking fans were saying how he finally got his recognition.

    Ik, the pro bowl is becoming more of a joke because if it being before the super bowl. Regardless, it means he was one of the top voted CB's (4th most apparently, since Traemon Williams took over for Asante Samuels, then Winfield replaced Williams). Good for him tho, he's been a good back for a long time, he deserves being honored for it. No matter how little the honor means now a days

    It is stupid. Just take a look at some of the cats who were nominated and look at the ones who weren't. Take it one step further and look at the players over the years who have "Skipped" a trip to HI.

    In the end, they play half speed, limit defensive schemes to keep QB's healthy and don't really care who wins or looses.

    Is it nice to get voted in? Sure, it means you have more chucklehead fans than the guy who is actually better than you are. Its always nice to know someone loves you, but that doesn't alleviate the fact that this isn't a game but rather a exhibition and one that is worse that preseason games.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg
