    Thumbs down RAMS in the pro bowl!!

    as pro bowl ending is just about to end, cbs has an article about the guys they think should be on the pro bowl team.

    In the NFC, there are two players listed

    anyways herez the article...enjoy!

    NFC offense
    QB: Matt Hasselbeck, Seahawks. Reserves: Eli Manning, Giants; Mark Brunell, Redskins.
    Comment: This is really a down year for NFC quarterbacks, so Hasselbeck takes the start almost by default. The reserves? Somebody has to go.

    RB: Starters: Shaun Alexander, Seahawks. Reserves: Tiki Barber, Giants; Warrick Dunn, Falcons.
    Comment: Alexander is having an MVP-like season, so he gets the start. Dunn edges out Washington's Clinton Portis for the final spot.

    FB: Starter: Mack Strong, Seahawks.
    Comment: He's the guy leading Alexander to all those yards.

    WR: Starters: Steve Smith, Carolina; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona. Reserves: Santana Moss, Redskins; Joey Galloway, Bucs.
    Comment: Smith is an MVP candidate, while Fitzgerald has put up huge numbers with the Cardinals. Moss has cooled some, while Galloway is having his best year since 1998.

    TE: Starter: Alge Crumpler, Falcons. Reserve: Jeremy Shockey, Giants.
    Comment: Clearly they are the two best in the NFC. Washington's Chris Cooley is a riser who just misses.

    T: Starters: Walter Jones, Seahawks; Jon Jansen, Redskins. Reserve: Orlando Pace, Rams.
    Comment: Jones is the league's best tackle, while Jansen gets the nod in a weak right tackle group. Pace is still a heck of a player.

    G: Starters: Steve Hutchinson, Seahawks; Chris Snee, Giants. Reserve: Larry Allen, Cowboys.
    Comment: Hutchinson and Jones make up the best side of any line in the league. Snee is a real comer who will be a perennial choice here.

    C: Starter: Olin Kreutz, Bears. Reserve: LeCharles Bentley, Saints.
    Comment: When he's not breaking teammates' jaws, Kreutz is a heck of a player. Bentley would get more notice on a better team.

    K: Neil Rackers, Cardinals.
    Comment: He has missed one field-goal attempt all season, making 34 of 35. That's amazing.


    NFC defense
    DE: Starters: Mike Strahan, Giants; Will Smith, Saints. Reserve: Adewale Ogunleye, Bears.
    Comment: Strahan lowered his body weight, but his production didn't drop. Smith has quietly developed into a star.

    DT: Starters: Rod Coleman, Falcons; Tommie Harris, Bears. Reserve: La'Roi Glover, Cowboys.
    Comment: Coleman is a sack guy inside, while Harris has emerged as a dominant player for a good Bears defense.

    OLB: Starters: Lance Briggs, Bears; Derrick Brooks, Bucs. Reserve: Karlos Dansby, Cardinals.
    Comment: Briggs is a rising star, while Brooks is a veteran who continues to play at a high level. Dansby could be a starter in years to come.

    ILB: Starters: Brian Urlacher, Bears. Reserves: Antonio Pierce, Giants.
    Comment: Urlacher has finally lived up to the hype. He's been all over the field. Pierce has been worth the price of free agency to the Giants.

    CB: Starters: Ken Lucas, Panthers; Nathan Vasher, Bears. Reserve: Ronde Barber, Bucs.
    Comment: Lucas has played as well as the Panthers had hoped when they signed him away from Seattle. Vasher has been an impact player on defense, while Barber has really come on the past six weeks.

    S: Starters: Adrian Wilson, Cardinals; Dwight Smith, Saints. Reserve: (tie) Brian Dawkins, Eagles; Darren Sharper, Vikings.
    Comment: Wilson doesn't get the due he deserves because he plays for the Cardinals. Smith has been all over the field for the Saints, while Sharper has the interception numbers and Dawkins is still one of the best.

    P: Josh Bidwell, Tampa Bay.
    Comment: He leads the NFC in average and has one of the better net averages

    Return man: Willie Ponder, Giants.
    Comment: He has a return for a touchdown and takes it in a lean year for NFC return men.

    Special teams: Corey Ivey, Rams.
    Comment: He always seems to be in the middle of the action.

    Notes: srry only posted NFC due to lack of space...

    Re: RAMS in the pro bowl!!

    Haha true. I'll tell you who should have made it in my opinion.

    Holt... Its Torry "Big Game" Holt man. Thats all that needs to be said.

    Pace... Its Pace the best LT in the game. All that needs to be said.

    Ivy (ST)... On P and K he has been all around the ball and is a ball hawk at that.

    Pickett... He has had a outstanding year. He is really a step or two off of being a superstar DT.

    Wilkins... Wilkins has been our hero all year. As been money for about every FG and when needed can boot the ball into the back of the endzone. Also is clutch.

    Barker... This guy has came in and did what has been asked of him. He can boot the ball down the field easily. Gives our D good field position to hold the opponents for about... 5 plays then they colapse.

    Lewis... What can I say. The biggest water boy in the world.... Just kidding!

    Re: RAMS in the pro bowl!!

    WR: Starters: Steve Smith, Carolina; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona. Reserves: Santana Moss, Redskins; Joey Galloway, Bucs.
    Steve Smith - 87 rec., 1329 yards, 10 TDs
    Larry Fitzgerald - 86 rec., 1151 yards, 7 TDs
    Torry Holt - 85 rec., 1112 yards, 7 TDs
    Santana Moss - 73 rec., 1167 yards, 6 TDs
    Joey Galloway - 67 rec., 1114 yards, 8 TDs

    Holt has only played in 11 games this year. The others all have played 13. How can you leave Holt out?

    DT: Starters: Rod Coleman, Falcons; Tommie Harris, Bears. Reserve: La'Roi Glover, Cowboys.
    Ryan Pickett - 54 tackles, 2 sacks
    Rod Coleman - 31 tackles, 8.5 sacks
    Tommie Harris - 23 tackles, 3 sacks
    LaRoi Glover - 23 tackles, 3 sacks

    You mean to tell me Pickett hasn't out-performed, at least one of those guys?

    Re: RAMS in the pro bowl!!

    Pickett has had the best year of any guy on the team, with the exception possibly of pace. I dont see how you can have a probowl without damione lewis, you never know when one team will need a guy to come in and punch someone in the groin.

    ramming speed to all, sign pickett and keep ike

    It's really just a CBS article, nothing is written in stone. We all pretty much know how the Rams are treated in the media so this is no surprise.
    BRUUUUUUUUCE

    That's a head scratcher. I think Furrey would be better suited here. I guess they don't watch too many RAM games.

    Are you kidding? They NEVER watch Rams games. The announcers for the games don't even know who is on the field half of the time.
