    St. Louis Rams punter Donnie Jones snubbed for Pro Bowl By Bill Coats

    The Rams will have no representatives in Honolulu on Feb. 8, when the NFLís all-stars gather for the Pro Bowl. Thatís not terribly surprising, considering their 2-12 season. Still, punter Donnie Jones shouldíve made the NFC squad instead of Jeff Feagles of the Giants. Consider the numbers:

    Jones is averaging an NFL-high 50.2 yards per punt. If he maintains that pace, it would be a league record. Feaglesí average is a whopping 8 yards less ó 44.0. Theyíre closer in net average, but again Jones has the edge, 40.9 yards to 40.1.

    Here are the Pro Bowl rosters:
