We're a few hours from Pro Bowl announcements, and no one around The Park is holding his breath. Not too many bright lights in this dim season, and not many individual honors expected to go around. A year ago guys like Santana and Dolla Bill were locks, and I thought Randy Thomas was the most deserving of all Skins, and he got snubbed.
I am willing to hear out anyone making a case for a Skin this year. Personally, I think Mike Sellers is the best candidate, given his position, impact and stellar play on special teams as well as fullback. He is not nearly as active in the red-zone passing game as he was a year ago (not that it's his fault), but the guy does all the ugly things it takes to win. He brings it every week. I would like to see Rock merit some special teams consideration.
Randy and Chris Samuels had good seasons again, and Chris has been before. It seems that guys who have been there before generally have a better shot of going back. Chris Cooley has been good, too, but there are too many tight ends having bigger seasons in the NFC.
As for the defense, well. Let's not get greedy. Marcus is a very good player, but no one over there had a Pro Bowl season. A healthy Shawn Springs would be Pro Bowl worthy - that guy is ballin since he's gotten over the sports hernia - and there is no doubt that Griffin has finally been healthy the last few weeks after gutting it out much of the season.
Maybe a missed someone here (I'm sure you guys will point it out if I did). But I think it's fair to say that up here, when you're 5-9, it's going to be with No Bowlers, not Pro Bowlers.
