Pro-bowl equals popularity contest. Cowboys are one of the most popular teams.

He means the fact that Mickey is second when the general consensus is we suck at the draft.

It just illustrates how popular of a team the Saints have been under Loomis and SP.

I don't think one should really draw any meaningful connections from this to how the teams have drafted since both the Saints and the Cowboys have had their share of duds.

O I C.

Loomis and co had some great drafts early on, but the last 4 have been awful and this league is built upon drafting good talent. Hell, in 06 we drafted nothing but pro-bowl talent lol.

What it really means is that we find Pro Bowl talent somewhere other than the first round.
from 06 on: Bush, Meachem, Ellis, Jenkins, Robinson, Jordan, Ingram, Vaccaro, Cooks......what's that? One ProBowl in 10 years?

You're missing the point.

Shows you what the GM can do at finding PRO BOWL TALENT... Everyone has misses but when you pick them at the rate Loomis is doing loading up on picks and letting him do his job he is going to find more than the average bear.

Pro Bowl voting just isn't a valid measuring device IMO - case and point Colston having never been voted in, but an injured Evans, in a down-year, makes the Pro Bowl simply on reputation.

Just arguing against the validity of this assessment.
