Woodson was the worst omission from either league. He's had a better year than Harris, although I probably would've voted them both in as starters. Nick Barnett has had a damn good year, too, although the competition at that position is pretty fierce. Jennings didn't stand a chance; unfortunatley Pro Bowl voting is mainly a popularity contest.

I know a dead guy got in but Woodson didn't? I'm not the one announcing every week saying he is the BEST corner in the NFL but I can't say he's not top 3 and certainly having a better year than Harris. Barnett not getting selected is an insult. 11 Cowboys to 4 Packers. Lame. We'll have the last laugh.

From quotes in the paper this morning a number of players feel pretty snubbed.

I would think this would provide some serious motivation for the team down the stretch.

So, does Dallas' players and coaches votes count double, or what?

Yeah if nothing else it'll give Barnett one more thing to get him riled up before the game. Chicago and Detroit are in trouble.

Woodson's omission is ridiculous, especially after his missing the Dallas game showed how important he is to the GB pass defense. But meanwhile, Tampa and Jacksonville somehow have zero total selections, so I suspect there's just something wrong in how players get picked in general.

Pro Bowl voting has always been a joke. Bubba Franks is an alternate, huh? Yeah, he deserves that and definitely didn't get it based on name recognition.

Barnett should have made it. He's having a better year than anyone else on the Packer's defense. Hawk was the third or fourth highest vote getter in the fans poll. Again, a complete joke.
