Drew Brees who is 2nd the league with 21 interceptions will probably get a vote to the pro bowl over Josh Freeman because fans are just idiots and vote for their favorite rather then who should be there.

Freeman deserves a spot over Brees. Freeman has lead the Bucs to a 9-6 record when they were only supposed to win 2 games according to some so called experts, also Freeman has over 3,000 yards 23 touchdowns and only 6 interceptions so why should Drew Brees get in and Freeman not?

P.S. If Mike Williams doesn't win rookie of the year then theres a huge hastred from the league against the Bucs.

If the Bucs miraculously get the 6th seed in the Playoffs and not a single player makes the Pro Bowl...look out because they are going to be dangerous!

Mike Williams is not going to win it, and you should get that out of your head right now.

The award pretty much has to go to Sam Bradford and will IMO. He even broke Peyton's completion record for rookies. He did so with no receivers at all.

While Mike had an awesome year no chance he beats out Bradford.

And the Probowl is and always has been a popularity contest, I've accepted that.

You know what is ererie?

Clayton finished second to Big Ben in OROY voting didn't he?

And now MW19 is going to finish second in OROY to Bradford (most likely)...

Hope he doesn't repeat the billion year slump that Clayton went through, and still is going through.

Pro Bowl is 2/3 voted by the Players & Coaches, fan voting doesn't count for everything like in other Sports All Star games.

In any other year Mike Williams or Blount would be the clear Rookie of the Year on Offense, but with Bradford possibly helping the Rams into the playoffs he'll get the award. Plus I think Blount & Williams will take votes away from each other.

Pro Bowl voting by the players isn't much better than voting by the fans. Since players don't see all of the players every season, in most cases the coaches just write the top player stats up on a white board and the players just vote based off that, or off who they personally like or respect, regardless of stats. Coaches, I would think, give the vote a little more thought.

It is still a popularity contest and not based solely on production.

the difference is #19 has to live off 4th round money.  He ain't a millionaire yet.

Let him continue his production consistently and I'm sure he will be given a proper contract.

You know what they say, you have to do it for a year and then do it again before they give you the Pro Bowl nod.

It's rare a rookie makes the Pro Bowl.

Well people should be voting based on THIS year because it's THIS years pro bowl. Not the year before that and the year before that

Ronde Barber should get in too, unfortunately most fans probably think he retired several years ago.
