This can't be real unless fans feel sorry about Troy being hurt.

Well congrats to Troy! I love Troy, but this was not his year. He was hurt too much to help our overrated Defense.

Like Dieselman said this just proves what a sham the pro bowl is. How the hell does Alan Faneca deserve to go? Troy as much as I love him has been out how many games?

Troy and Alan both both got in on their reputations. Harrison definitely deserved it. Based on Willie's numbers this year,regardless of how people feel about him he's at the top of the league in rushing yards so he was a no brainer. Ben should have been in as a Starter !

Troy is a playmaker ! Troy makes a difference come game time !!!! Most people realize this except the few who thinks Tyrone imajuststandrighthereinthisspotwhilewelkerscoresth istd Carter should be playing instead of Troy.

Congrats to Ben... I am a little surprised by Ben but he definitely deserves it right along with Willie :clap: I can't knock on Troy too much... he is one of my favorites and it's always nice to see Steelers there in the PB :bigthumb:

Troy is very valuable though! He has to be accounted for each and every play! He does not have the numbers of the past years, but everyone tries to avoid going his way! That is respect!

Ben with the respect! Hopefully him and Faneca won`t play at the same time, that way he won`t be on his back!

Troy a play-maker?....Not this year.....with 0 INTs and 0 sacks.....All this crap with Troy is old...You guys take the blinders off...lol He sucks this year bad....For every tackle he does make he misses one...lol

Nah even if Faneca is in there when Ben is; Alan will have some help with 4 other LEGIT pro bowlers :lol:

Hell, they should have also picked Simmons and Mahan. No question they're pro-bowl material. I'm sure they feel left out

Explain to me how Willie doesn't deserve to make it?

it was handed to him, now he has made it for a great season and a disappointing season....make him earn it, he leads the league in rushing now but said and done he wont...2 TDs isnt impressive at all and having soooo many more carries than anyone else, yet only up by like 11 yards means his YPC is mediocre at best. Hes been a huge disappointment this year, make him work extra hard to make the probowl next year....dont just give it to him.

Maybe give it to fred taylor who has had a revived career this year and just thrashed the best run defense in the league to pieces

i thought ben deserved it, i wasnt sure if he'd get in....but harrison to be starting is great, he REALLY was the only steeler i think was unquestioned on deserving.

ben and harrison are the only ones that deserve a congrats for making the pro bowl....... ben still has retard moments but he doesn't throw as many ints anymore and he actually threw more than 18 tds this year..... i hope the person that said ben should be starting was kidding, and if not you need to be hit in the face with a sledge hammer

harrison is a monster, i love that he's starting while the guy he replaced is sitting at home and playing for a 1 win team

willie is leading the lead in rushing by less then 10 yards and he's ran over 35 more times then anyone, that is not a good season at all, he only has 2 tds, and while i understand that's from ben throwing more tds, he could have at least 7 with as many times we've come up empty handed and settled for 3 deep in the redzone....... fred taylor should be in over him, he averages over 5 yards per carry, and is just beastly, willie isn't on his level, fred would have more yards if that midget didn't take more of his carries......

faneca, no explanation why he doesn't deserve it........it's gay that you get in off name

and troy, wow, this is sickening that he makes it, and i can't believe dick riders here justify it, he has made zero impact this year, oh wow he stopped garrard from getting a first down, he's a SUPER STAR!!!, gtfoh with that ****, he doesn't make an impact at all anymore, teams have figured all you have to do is put a wr on him and he's blocked out of a play cause he sucks zebra dick......hopefully troy will get better, but as i've been saying for 3 years now, he is OVERRATED.........train, you know what to bust out for the fans that cry
