    yeah, WE WAS ROBBED!!

    The Pro Bowl Vote sucked, we're still not gettin' the respect. It was nice when we were a cinderella, but now nothing...

    It's a tough business...

    Yes, it's a tough business alright. :confused:

    J-Ram, you probably meant Adam Archuleta, for an additional Rams Pro Bowl rep, right?

    According to the Rams NFL Web site, the following are "alternate" Pro Bowl selections:

    [Quote] Other Rams’ players selected as alternates are TE Ernie Conwell, LB London Fletcher, WR Torry Holt, G Adam Timmerman, K Jeff Wilkins, and DE Grant Wistrom. [end quote]

    Maybe we'll get even by winning the Super Bowl, ehy?

    GO RAMS!!!

    Here are some folks I am very glad are Rams this year that aren't on the Pro Bowl list:

    Brian Young
    Tommy Polley
    Leonard Little
    Ricky Proehl
    Dre Bly

    Ok let me get this straight, here are the NFC Safeties:

    John Lynch - Tampa Bay
    Sammy Knight - New Orleans
    Brian Dawkins - Philadelphia

    Arch has played just as good as them. If only he had made a couple INT's. He had his chances.

    Lets look at the LB's:

    LaVar Arrington - Washington
    Derrick Brooks - Tampa Bay
    Jeremiah Trotter - Philadelphia
    Brian Urlacher - Chicago

    Urlacher is having an MVP year. Very justified. Arrington? 77 solo tackles, 3 INT's 1 TD but just 0.5 sacks. Brooks? 71 solo tackles, 2 INT's, no sacks, no TD's. Trotter? 83 solo tackles, 2 INT's, 3.5 sacks, 1 TD.

    Fletcher's stats are:

    56 solo tackles but 27 assists, no one else had even 20.
    4.5 sacks
    2 INT's but no touchdowns. If only Fletch had scored.

    Roger that TX. Rams definitely DO have the best all around team! These guys plus the colleagues they rotate with: Zgonina, McCleon, Moran, Archuleta, Jeff Robinson at TE, etc.... truly make a well rounded, strong, winning squad (they remind me --quality/level wise-- of the 1967-70 Rams, Colts [Baltimore] Packers, Vikings ...rugged, solid, tough teams).

    As for the Pro Bowl, I would have liked to seen Torry Holt in place of Keyshawn J. -- for crying out loud!

    THE St. Louis R A M S

    Hey TX, nice research of those facts/stats too!

    To be honest I dont take much stock in the Pro Bowl selections.There are always a bunch of players who get overlooked.We only had one defense player voted in and in a way it could be a blessing in disguise.I think that opposing teams still have a tendency to overlook the Rams defense and not give them the respect they deserve.Thats ok!Once our boys are holding the Lombardi trophy the Pro Bowl wont mean a thing.Our Rams will have a tough playoff run ahead of them and I think both our offense and defense will be up for the challenge.Just my two cents worth.


    :angryram: GO RAMS! STAY FOCUSED! WIN!:shield:

    at least it's not the MLB all star game where everyone deserving and undeserving gets in, at least we don't have that stupid rule about all teams being present...

    The Pro Bowl means nothing.
    If we win the Super Bowl I wouldn't care if we had no players selected.
    Probably the reason a lot of Rams missed out on selection, especially on defense, is the team ethic.
    While good players at the Bucs may stand out on an otherwise unspectacular team, the Rams have so many good players that its difficult for them to get noticed.
    The Swarm doesn't have to many individuals because they all play hard as a team.
    Leave the glory and Pro Bowl places to teams who aren't going further than the 1st round of the play-offs. They need it more.
    The only recognition the Rams need is a 2nd ring.

    heard one

    I heard something that made me laugh that really made me think.

    How much weight can you really put into the pro bowl.

    Lets take 11 of the best players from all over the NFL and line them up against the Rams and then lets see who will still win. I would bet the Rams would win 9/10 times

    Screw the pro bowl

    The Pro Bowl is a damn popularity contest. Its a nice bonus for the player Im sure...but the only place I wanna see these guys go in FEB is NEW ORLEANS.
    It may be a blessing not sending some guys...who can say ROBERT EDWARDS?? A promising career was ENDED at the Pro Bowl weekend. Adam Archuletta to the Pro Bowl?? Cmon guys...Archulettas track record with his health is SHAKEY
    thus far...he has shown himself vulnerable to concussion...not a good sign for a hard hitting safety. Hes played well as a rook but you cant be going out for two games here and a game there with a concussion. Should this trend continue he will have a BRIEF career. The real crime is not seeing more of the O LINEMEN acknowledged. Without these guys playing as well as they have Warner and Faulk
    would NOT be LEGITIMATE MVP candidates!! Us OLD SCHOOL FANS can see a REPEAT of SUPER BOWL XIV looming...only no 'hail marys' to STALLWORTH or SWANN this time. NEW ORLEANS OR BUST!!:angryram:

    Hey, we all know the probowl selections are subjective. I mean, really, if it was up to us, the pro bowl would only be made up of Rams. Am I right?

    I just can't believe that we have the number2 rated defence in the league and number1 in the NFC and we only have one defencer going to the Pro Bowl!!!!!!

    Williams truly deserves his spot, BUT PLEASE WHAT ABOUT FLETCH!!!

    174 Tackles

    2Ints

    4.5 SACKS. and the emotional leader of our D

    I think the RAMS are just NOT liked around the league!!!!!!!!!!

    O well it's just jealousy WE HAVE THE BEST TEAM IN THE LEAGUE


    It won't affect the players from their main GOAL and the SUPER

    BOWL will be going to the ST.LOUIS.
