The fans only know what the announcers tell them.  "Jake Long, 4 time pro bowler has been one of the best OT's in the game...."  Most people don't know how to watch a football game and evaluate positions like that.

Yeah that's why it pretty much is a joke.  It's not just the NFL either.  Players can really just thrive on the first few years of their success, if successful, and just keep getting voted in on popularity or the fact their name is simply more recognizable than the rest. Until there's someone new at the same position just as outstanding that shows up on the scene.

Hmmm lets all vote to get say Brady Quinn in the pro bowl. That'll really make a mockery of the voting.

I think a big portion of his decline are all the injuries he has suffered since we have drafted him.. It seems like he has suffered season ending injuries in like 3 of the years..

You have to think when that happens he can't work out, keep himself in shape, I think its taken a toll on him.. He may be 27 or 28 now but he is old for his age. His physical skills and certainly any quickness he had are diminished from when he entered in the league.

You freakin nailed it brother! When you are an offensive lineman and you can't do squats, power cleans, dead lifts or bench press because you are always recovering from an injury you are screwed.

I think Cam Wake deserves a spot. Unfortunately for someone Jake is going to command a huge contract and he will get it. I love the guy but sure as hell hope we don't make him one of the highest paid LTs in the league.

Considering Wake gets held on every play I agree.  I think with Long it just depends on if he wants to stay in Miami.  Really it would not bother me if he walks but it just adds another hole to fill.

I'd like to resign Long, at a reasonable price, just because we know what he is at this point. He is a good, not great anymore, starter with solid leadership on the line. If he walks, it's not the end of the world, but it means we're probably spending one of our first 3 picks on an OT and I know everybody here is just so damn tired of that.

And Cam Wake not making the pro-bowl would be far more of a joke than Long making it. Wake has been dominant for 3 years now, and is easily the best or 2nd best DE in the league along with J.J. Watt. It's about time he got some respect and recognition.

The Pro Bowl bacame a joke about 20 years ago when the FANS were given an opportunity to vote.

It's now nothing but a popularity contest, and it's just plain stupid to have it played BEFORE the Super Bowl.

Back in the day, the PLAYERS voted for their peers whom they played with and against. That set-up produced the best results for seeing the most talented players in the PRO BOWL.

Good post, and Wake does deserve to be at the Pro Bowl.

How the does the long snapper get to the Pro Bowl but not Brandon Fields?  eek1
LOL

Incognito is going to the Pro Bowl now because Baltimore's Marshal Yanda or New England's Logan Mankins will have to bow out because one of them is going to the Super Bowl.

Its a sham, I don't think fans actually pay any attention to special teamers  otherwise Brandon Fields would have been in the probowl this year and last year.

Long Snappers cmon man like anyone really knows who the long snappers are.. John Denny makes it every year he has been a fin .

Fields actually won the fan component gonz, it was the coaches and players that voted in colquitt.

As for Denney, I've never complained about him and that's really what you expect out of a longsnapper, right? And I like incognito, plays hard every snap.. It's good to see him getting the respect of his peers

Isn't our old long snapper New Englands starting LBer? I could have sworn he had double digit sacks last season, not sure about this year.
