Raiders | Asomugha added to Pro Bowl, but can't find a flight there

Len Pasquarelli, of ESPN.com, reports Oakland Raiders CB Nnamdi Asomugha was chosen to replace Jacksonville Jaguars CB Rashean Mathis (undisclosed) in the Pro Bowl. However, Asomugha was not notified until late Friday, Feb. 9. There was no flight that Asomugha could take that would get him to Honolulu in time for the game, meaning he will not participate.

The Raiders have a nice little defense.  If they ever add a QB in to the mix, upgrade their pathetic O-line, they might be serious contenders...

Did I just say that?

Nnmandi was an alternate?

the guy lead the league in interceptions for a while there, didnt he get like 11 interceptions or something?

I'm surprised he's not a 1st team starter.. He's the guy the Raiders picked with one of our trades of Gruden, took him a couple of years but that dude is a baller, tall fast guy that can cover.

At first I thought when Davis picked him he was just looking at the guy's 40, but now Asomugha looks real good. Then again, despite the horrible showing that is the Raiders the last few seasons, they have managed to put together a very respectable defense.
