    1. Cam Wake that's it...

    is there something wrong with that? I can't believe fields didn't make it.. Am I being unreasonable to think more dolphins should of made it?

    Can't believe Jones and Fields didn't get an invite. Suspect they will as alternates by the time the game comes.

    I think fields may already be although the alternate system is quite suspect

    Oh please. Pro Bowl is nothing more than a popularity contest and most are voted in based on Madden ratings by gamers. I understand Wake.

    But your telling me Jones, Fields, and Pouncey didn't make it in? Starks and Soliai either? Let me guess, Ray Lewis makes it in along with Suggs and Revis who barely even played this year.

    1. not surprised
    2. call me when the All Pro teams come out... and when we have maybe one first teamer in pouncey and maybe 1 other second teamer... i will still not be surprised. this team just doesnt have top league talent, and everyone but the few sparse dolphins fans know it

    doesnt explain why KC has 5 people on roster but to a degree u are right.
    I think 2 dolphins deserved to make it this year Wake and Fields.
    Still cannot believe the coaches and players screwed Fields

    the pro bowl has become a joke... im all for eliminating the game, and instead replacing it with a skills competition (ie QB Challenge) these players named above most likely will pass anyways, because of the chance for injury.

    We lack elite talent. We do have above average players everywhere though, which is what gets us wins when we work as a team, now its time to get elite talent at the playmaking positions to put us over the top.

    hmmm. Wonder what this does with Jake Long's contract situation (demand on money without making pro-bowl)

    Sucks for Fields and Pouncey though...

    The number may change. Solai was not chosen for pro bowl last year but as one of the alternates that was heallthy he ended up going

    Well i agree on wake and Fields, not sure about Pouncy , Myers is ranked as the best center by PFF for what its worth ( I dont value it but I do think that its close to call at center)
    As for KC Jammal Charles deserves to go third leading rusher in NFL, Derrick Johnson deserves to go one of best mlb in nfl.
    Colquitt no although he did make alot of kicks inside the 20 which did hurt his average.
    Eric berry who knows . He is a very good safety but that position is very subjective. Tamba Hali its not been his best year but he has been a topl OLB for a few years.

    When you are arguing about whether your punter should be on the pro bowl team or not it is very telling about your team. Elite teams are questioning why they only have 5 players going and don't care about a special teams roster spot. No offense to Fields...

    Not saying he is all that but interceptions may be the most overrated stat in all of football.
    I have seen cb's shutdown wr's all year with minimal interceptions

    INTS are overrated for a CB or even a LB, but at S, that's one of there primary jobs. Make game changing plays.

    Berry is also getting destroyed by TEs this year. Dude blows.

    Int are just as overrated for a safety. A pass defender's number one job is to stop his receiver from making plays. This was not a defense of Berry.

    Any stat is and can be overrated.

    But as a SS in the NFL, there is no way you should go a whole NFL season w/o a INT. Just get 1 lol

    I do agree he should get a damn interception though. I think tackles are seen as an overrrated stat but in reality its usually shows the guys that are getting to the ball carriers and making stops which is the key to defense

    How the hell did Londen Fletcher not make the pro bowl. You know he has not missed a game in 15 years and almost has 2000 tackles

    I am not surprised, this team is void of talent. I am not trying to be a downer, just trying to be honest. Wake and Fields are the only 2 on the team I would consider very good players. We have a lot of solid players like Pouncey, Soliai, Bush, Jones and Dansby.....but nothing that scares you. Losing Vontae ( I don't care what he has done in Indy) and Marshall.....with a rookie head coach and QB.....I think Philbin has done an oustanding job, and we are 2 missed kicks away from making the playoffs.

    Ireland sucks, he better not screw this draft up!

    Quite often the Pro Bowl is based on reputation anyway, so you get to the Pro Bowl based on what you did the previous year and years. Pouncey and Jones if they continue their play should get in in a year or two, Solai and Starks I couldn't really comment on whether they are the best at their positions but probably aren't too far off. Punters is a stat thing and without looking at the stats I imagine Fields is right up there. I was a doubter of Dansby but I think he has had a really good season.
    Once the Fins become relevent again they will send more to the Pro Bowl.

    Well being on a good team does help but the Chiefs have 5 guys in pro bowl so who knows. The only dolphins that deserved to go to pro bowl in my opinion were Wake and Fields, not sure how Fields got hosed

    Jones, Pouncey and Fields all absolutely deserved it as well. A case can be made for Starks too IMHO.

    Win. Once we start winning, individual players will start getting the recognition they deserve from the stat-watchers and prime-time-sportscasters that fuel the whole Pro Bowl thing.

    Im a little suprised by u saying this why.
    Dansby has played well this year overall but I think Mayo once again had a better year.
    Mayo is one of the best linebackers in the league

    Well to be fair Starks has made it before in a year he really didnt deserve it following a year he did.
    Jones is at a position that the pro bowl struggles with and is far from a household name.
    Pouncey lost out to his better known brother and the highest rated center in the NFL statwise

    There is no way to take popularity out of it because coaches and players do the same thing.
    In fact many of us are upset because a player popular with us did not make it.

    I would not give a second thought to who does and who does not make the Pro Bowl. Any voting system that allows multiple votes to the public on a topic they are biased on is not worth thinking about. Most folk just vote for players who they know, i.e players on their favourite team or big name players. It is a joke even to allow the general public vote on offensive line positions, for example.

    What is even more worrying is that "Pro Bowl visits" are used as some measure of worth by analysts and pundits. I would not cry too deeply if the whole thing was scrapped to be honest.

    The general public seems to do no worse than the coaches and players so in reality there is no system that will guarantee deserving people always get in

    Also to be fair do most fans admit when a player from their team that makes is not worthy, not really.
