Only Pouncey and Heath made the pro bowl this year for the steelers. I know Ben had a rough patch of games but Schaub over him? really?

Only Heath should have made it.

was it last year they all got in crap because how they played the game like it was such a joke? I never watched, but saw a few highlights and it was like some comedy .

Eric Berry made the probowl.

That alone should be enough to tell you what the pro bowl is worth.

He was awful most of the year.

Ryan Clark was better than Ed Reed this year. Reed is a shell of his former self and living off of hype.

Jerod Mayo was nowhere close to Timmons this year.

Most people who vote are total morons.

The AFC safeties are incredibly awful. Weddle, Byrd and Clark are no where to be found but Berry and Landry make it??

Nice to see Miller make it even though he won't play. Timmons should have definitely made it. I agree with the above comments about Clark being snubbed over players that didn't have as good of a season. He deserved it more than Pouncey in my opinion.

Timmons was better than Mayo this year. Clark and Weddle were both better than Reed, TJ Ward was better than either SS that made it. Maurkice wasn't even the best Pouncey at center this season.

Pouncey had a 5 or 6 game stretch where he was balling.

He was solid in pass pro most of the year.

Run blocking was awful the first few weeks. He picked it up though.

I agree the other Pouncey shouldve made it over him, though.

It's the biggest joke in sports, especially since the players openly trash it and talk of how little it means to them. So it is hard to actually care. Ben/Clark could have definitely made it over what they have in there, though.

And not that Pouncey had a terrible season or anything, but he's still totally living off of the hype of his rookie season. He hasn't been out of this world, yet the play by play guys make it seem like he's the best C in the NFL.
