Pro-Bowls is the way you evaluate talent, really? Don't you know that us fans vote on who makes the roster?

It's nothing more than a popularity contest these days...

It can be, but 1/3 of the vote are players, 1/3 of the vote are coaches, so its not exactly the popularity contest it would be if it were 100% fan vote.

Its biased and every year there are head scratchers, but they're mostly reputation votes.

Thats why I don't think Harper's two-time selection as an alternate should be dismissed. He damn sure wasn't voted in by fan bias so the players/coaches had more to do with his selection than fans.

The pro-bowl isn't a joke, but it damn sure doesn't consistently pick the very best player at each position year in and year out.

I'm convinced that if you do make it, its quite probable that you don't suck.

I hope the linebackers show improvement but Harper ran a better combine 40 than Vaccaro. He had more college tackles, sacks, forced and recovered fumbles, and both had 5 career picks. Most in this forum hate Harper and love Vaccaro. He's gotta prove it to me. Then again, I only post when I'm drinking.

Combine numbers for the 40yd mean zip

The beer man had no college stats, went to the pro bowl and was all pro in 2002.

Hasllett said that at his first tryout he clocked Beerman at 4.4 flat three times in wet grass. If 40 times are meaningless, why do em?

Because funnel times with draft beer would be unethical.

Believe as you wish. Who runs a straight line 40 during the game?

Apples and oranges.

Re: Vaccaro intends to add to Saintsí new-look defense

Last time I came even close to paying attention to the pro bowl, Romo got in. WTF?

When was the last time our linebackers got in the real bowl?
