    When some of you still second guess whether Long was the right choice for the #1 pick just remember that only three years into his career he has started every game and has made the Pro Bowl all three years. Yes, a franchise quarterback would have been nice, but we still got one of the best players in the league. Long is now a three time Pro Bowler. :)

    I remember when Omar Kelley said doing camp that Wake might not make the team. And people get paid for stupid comments.

    He isn't in a glamorous position so good luck getting people to be really excited about a LT

    Also remember if you think Jake has a down year, he played the last part of the season with a tear in his shoulder, and played at a high level.

    I'd have liked to see Vontae or Big Paulie get some recognition, but they aren't ready just yet

    In a couple of years I definitely see Vontae going, and hopefully Soliai will get some recognition.

    Awesome. Glad they got it. I still love the Long pick even for all thoes saying we should have gotten Matt Ryan. We have a now 3 time Pro Bowl LT and possible HOF LT with that pick.
    Very excited for wake especially how hard he worked to get their.

    Well deserved! I just hope WAKE can have 2 sacks next week, very difficult but it would be nice so that he finishes atop the league.

    remember the only reason he made it in his rookie season was because Jason Peters sat out

    he still played at a pro bowl level and remember the only reason peters made it was because of his name... that year he let up around 10 sacks.... he had a mediocre year

    Dan Carpenter had a Pro Bowl locked up until he went 0-4 a couple weeks ago (granted they were all long kicks).

    Another quick question:

    Why does the NFL hate Lousaka Polite?

    some scouts acted like white was gonna be better than Vick. Some people on this board said Ryan would be a monumental bust. People are wrong all the time. It wasnt so far fetched at the time he said it lets not forget prior to signing in canada Wake was out of any football for two years so you never know, there are no sure things coming out of the position he was coming, although he was a pretty low risk investment. I was never a huge WAKE fan myself, not because Im ignorant of canadian football or a hater I just know the huge differance in talent. Wake is one of the rare guys that was not good enough for some reason to play in nfl although he seemed to have the skillset that worked on his game and became a player. what he has done this year rushing the passer has been nothing but amazing from where he has came from. I say major congrats you deserve a pro bowl start. I dont agree on Long , he is now in the Mike Alstott zone where his popularity will basically take him to pro bowl every year. He is a probowler in name only in my mind. Great effort hurt but he was not one of the best two tackles in the AFC this year blast away im sure he is not the only guy that did not deserve to start. Nobody else on roster deserved probowl consideration at all. Marshall too few big plays, Carpenter actually had poor overall year among lowest in fg pct. Congrats again Cameron

    Carpenter hit 75 percent of his field goals, cundief hit 89 percent so yea I think that was an easy choice in fact these players all had better years than carpenter. rob Bironas, Adam v, neild rackers , s janikowski

    In fact cundief is by far the most deserving leading the league in kickoff yards and touchbacks as well as a high FG percentage. Half his kickoffs are touchbacks 38 compared to carpenters 14. These are not close numbers

    did we have a 1000 yard back that someone did not inform me of.

    read my above stats 75 percent of fgs compared to 89 percent
    cundief lead the league in kicoff average and half his kicks were touchbacks
    38 tbs compared to craps 14 i mean really this was no conspiracy thier numbers were not even close.
    no k at 75 percent should be the pro bowl starter
