The Pro Bowl ballot does not include long snappers, because, really, who can identify the NFLís best long snappers? But someone has to long snap in the Pro Bowl, so the coaching staffs of the AFC and NFC teams each choose a long snapper. And today came the news that the Pro Bowl long snappers will be Miamiís John Denney for the AFC and Detroitís Don Muhlbach for the NFC.

Muhlbach was chosen by Mike McCarthy and the Packersí staff. The Pro Bowl coaching staffs in each conference are the higher seeds of the divisional-round losers, so this year thatís the No. 1 seed Broncos in the AFC and the No. 3 seed Packers in the NFC.

Muhlbach has been with the Lions since 2004 and has never been to the Pro Bowl before.


Didn't realise long snappers were selected to the pro bowl by coaches, is this something new?

Has Muhlbach done anything of note on special teams this season? I ask as Mannelley is known within the organization and across the league as a consistent snapper and can get down the field and make a tackle on punts. I thought if this was a new thing, he might get the nod as recognition of his work over the last 15 odd seasons.

Thoughts?
