PRO BOWL ROSTERS ANNOUNCED!!

and the EAGLES are represented nicely.  Congratulations to the following:

  • LT JASON PETERS
  • DE TRENT COLE
  • CB ASANTE SAMUEL
  • K DAVID AKERS
  • FB LEONARD “THE WEAVE” WEAVER
  • WR/KR DESEAN JACKSON

Peters was somewhat of a surprise, but the NFC is kind of thin at LT and overall, he’s had a decent season.  Cole, Akers, and Asante were all expected and they’ve had great years so their honors are well deserved.  GOTTA LOVE THE WEAVE!!!  So happy he made it so that he can unleash his general awesomeness on the NFC Pro Bowl roster.

A special note of Congratulations goes out to Mr. Jackson.  He’s done something that nobody else ever has.  HE WAS ELECTED AS A STARTER AT 2 POSITIONS!!!  That’s right.  In the history of the Pro Bowl no player has ever been elected to start at multiple positions.  But little #10 is not only the starting WR opposite none other than Larry Fitzgerald, he is also the starting Kick Returner.  A fantastic season for DeSean has truly been recognized.  Congratulations!!

Snubs:

  • CB SHELDON BROWN –  Much as I knock him for his lack of height and somewhat limited coverage ability, the man has had maybe his best season to date.  He’s fought through various injuries, hasn’t missed a game, and his leadership definitely helped fill the void left by Brian Dawkins, Stewart Bradley, and Jim Johnson.  The NFC screwed him over.  But considering how well he’s played in light of his contract situation, maybe this will just piss him off more. 
  • LB TRACY WHITE – Amazing special teams player who has had to step up and play major minutes in the base defense.  Week in and week out, he’s constantly around the football and seen making tackle after tackle after tackle.  Tough break.

Congratulations to all the guys, and sorry to Sheldon and Tracy.  My sincerest hope is that NONE of you wind up playing in the Pro Bowl because you will be too busy preparing to play in the Super Bowl…
