Harrison, Farrior and Polamalu Named to Pointless Squad No One Cares About

Yes, yes, very fitting that all the Steelers Pro Bowl representatives come from the defense, not that's there's anyone on the offense deserving of serious consideration this year. Would have been nice to see LaMarr Woodley get in there with Silverback and Farrior, but who gives a shit? He's got plenty of time for individual accolades. If Pittsburgh's still alive late in January and early February, none of them will play anyway.

Still, nice to see some recognition for the defense. And I see former Steeler and current opponent Chris Hope got a nod. Nice work, fuckface. Since Kyle Vanden Bosch and Albert Haynesworth aren't playing this week, you've got a little more work to do now that the opposing quarterback doesn't have less than zero time to throw. Either way, it's gonna be a tough one of the road with both teams playing for the one-seed.

I know you're gay for Woodley and all, but I think that Aaron Smith and Ike Taylor are the bigger snubs.

Just my 2.

Cheers!

Ike has played well, but it doesn't help that he only has one interception this year.

Aaron Smith has an inspiring story and has played well, but he's also missed some time, which cuts into his stats. Because he's not a big name, that hurts him with Pro Bowl voters.

3 picks from the Steelers for the Pro Bowl? Did I hear correctly that the Deadskins have 16 players? Proves a what a joke this whole thing is.....

HAIL STEELERS!

Never mind.....I checked, it's 4. Still 4 too much.

Yeah. Can't take too much stock in Pro Bowl voting. It's like the Oscars. People get it on reputation in a lot of cases. How else would Favre be one of the QBs for the AFC?

Wonder if Smith gets the nod as Haynesworth's sub.

The best way to look at selection to the Pro Bowl is vindication for your team. So, ya, I'm pretty happy about three defensive players making it to the game.
