So I guess you don't have to be an all-pro in order to make the NFL Pro Bowl. Then again, the Pro Bowl just as it is in other sports is just a popularity contest for the most part. That's what happens when you let fans vote.
Now, fans should have say no doubt. Of course coaches and players also get a voice in the process as well. Look at most of the NFC roster and it's saturated with Philadelphia Eagles and Atlanta Falcons and rightfully so. What I would like to know is how Adrian Wilson gets in on what has arguably been his worst season?
Where is punter Ben Graham? Kicker Jay Feely? I would argue for LaRod Stephens-Howling, but he was injured too much and the Chicago Bears Devin Hester really turned it on over the past couple of months, so I'd be crazy to argue that one.
I like Wilson and he is one of the best all-time defenders in Cardinals history but you have to agree Wilson was not even close to playing a Pro Bowl type season. He seems a step or two slower. He didn't hit as hard as in years past. He just seems like a player at the tail end of a good career. Then this, go figure. Well I wish A-Dub all the best. Maybe this was a pick based on career contributions. However I always thought these things were for current contributions? What do I know, right?
