Few NFC South players getting Pro Bowl respect

November 25, 2008 4:45 PM

Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

Just got another weekly update on what NFC East fans as well as some folks in Wisconsin and Arizona have been doing with their free time. Yes, there's another update on the Pro Bowl fan voting and it's not much better than last week for the NFC South.

Only 11 players from the division are even in the top five at their respective positions. If the fan voting determined the whole thing and it ended today, New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees and Carolina defensive end Julius Peppers would be the only players from the NFC South going to Hawaii. There's something wrong with that because the NFC South can make a strong case that it's the best division in the NFL right now, but Brees is the only guy who would even having a starting job.

He ranks first among quarterbacks and Peppers is third among defensive ends. New Orleans return man Reggie Bush ranks third. Atlanta defensive end John Abraham, New Orleans tight end Jeremy Shockey and Atlanta kicker Jason Elam rank fourth at their positions. Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, New Orleans fullback Mike Karney, Tampa Bay cornerback Ronde Barber and punter Josh Bidwell rank fifth at their positions.

Lots of other worthy guys -- Carolina's Jon Beason, Tampa Bay's Barrett Ruud, Atlanta's Roddy White, Carolina's Steve Smith, Tampa Bay's Antonio Bryant and Carolina's Chris Harris pop quickly to mind -- aren't even in the top five.

Two things you can do about this: One, hop over to nfl.com and give an honest vote; two, hope that players and coaches straighten out this mess with their two-thirds of the overall vote

Who cares about the Pro-bowl?

NIce read anyway Unreal. :)

it is a popularity contest............. but it would be cool to see the nfc team made up of players mostly from the south.

if you took the best players from the south an pitted them against the best players from any other division.................the south would smoke them.

The nice thing about it too......there is loads of YOUNG talent in the south.

Love is irrational, and it looks like Cupid's arrow had a little too much mustard on it and shot straight through Kim, nailing WFL in the ticker. Notice how he can't just simply talk about any Falcon players without drawing some comparison to #25? Like ever?

He probably had to take a second job to cover all the Reggie fatheads adorning his walls.

JH, I give credit where credit is due...that is some funny shyt! :lol::lol::lol:

p.s. Turner >>>> Bust by a mile! :P

joe is 100% right. why is it that you ALWAYS bring up reggie? love? hate? jealousy? what is it wfw?

i've already mentioned, both reggie and mike turner are in the right situations. they're both asked to do completely opposite things and they are both very very good at what they do. if you held a poll on a saints forum and a falcons forum, i bet 95% of saints fans would take reggie and 95% of falcons fans would take turner. it's a dead debate.

they are 2 completely different players so who cares? Back on topic, the South always gets snubbed in the pro bowl.

as long as you have teams like the cowboys, skins, and eagles all in your conference your gonna have people get snubbed. we all know about dallas and the skins fans, but the nfl seems to love a mediocre eagles team each year.

Yeah i really don't get the Eagles love. The Cowboys have the biggest bandwagon fanbase so it's understandable. Skins have a huge one as well.
