Who was the Steelers Biggest Pro-Bowl Snub?

12-30-2009, 12:16 AM
I don't think anyone on our team who didn't make the probowl this year was really a snub. Nobody really should have 100% definitely made it and didn't. There are just people who probably could have made it but aren't popular enough to get the votes.

Woodley with 4 votes? He played like dong the first half of the season.

BR7 easily.

Big Ben had a big year, despite the record. If he had an all star o-line in front of him, he'd be just as good as manning or brady if not better imo

Woodley, really . . . .

20 Solo's, 4 assists, 5 sacks and one fumble return for a TD.

That's Mr Woodley's stats through Week 11, ten games.

Practically 2/3rds of the season . . .

On average 2 solo tackles a game and 0.5 sacks a game.

He had one fumble return for a TD, . . . but no forced fumbles through this stretch.

Credit for The Wood for his play the last 4 weeks or so, but his play the first 11 weeks was well below his own standards let alone pro bowl standards.

I'd like to have seen Heath go, but looking at everyone else I feel no ill justice.

Go Steelers

Wood wasn't playing like *** earlier in the year, he wasn't putting up great numbers but they were decent. Yeah he came on later in the year and he's got 10.5 sacks now on the season so he's headed in the right direction.

I would say I would have liked to have seen Keisel get in, even though he's had a great year for us, there's a lot of DE's in 43 schemes for example, that have better numbers but not necessarily a better player than he is.

12-30-2009, 08:19 AM
Through 6 games I believe he had 3 sacks. 2 of which were dong sacks created on corner blitzes where Culpepper was forced into his hands. He also had an average I believe of 1 or 2 tackles in each game. It was very Gildong like.

No snubs this year.....

12-30-2009, 08:48 AM
I picked Ben.
This seasons team struggles overpowered Ben's numbers to get in. IMO.

No one on this team really deserved it. If you lose to teams like oak, kc, and the clowns you should be watching the pro-bowl and the playoffs.

Heath Miller.....

Dallas Clark, bla bla bla, he's more of a hybrid TE, Heath is one of the most underrated TE in this league, his blocking ability is worth it alone!

Big Ben, teammates, selected Pro Bowl alternates
Wednesday, December 30, 2009
By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
Quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was not voted to the Pro Bowl but there is a good chance he will play in the game and possibly a few more of his teammates will join him.

Roethlisberger along with linebacker LaMarr Woodley and tight end Heath Miller all were selected as first alternates at their positions for the AFC team in the Jan. 31 game in Miami.

Each would join the squad if one player at their positions bows out and since no player from the AFC team in the Super Bowl will play in the Pro Bowl, there is a good possibility one or all could join teammates James Harrison and Casey Hampton who have been named to the all-star squad.

The quarterbacks on the AFC Pro Bowl team are Peyton Manning of No. 1 playoff seed Indianapolis, Philip Rivers of No. 2 seed San Diego and Tom Brady of AFC East champion New England.

The tight ends are Dallas Clark of Indianapolis and Antonio Gates of San Diego. The outside linebackers are Harrison, Elvis Dumervil of Denver and Brian Cushing of Houston.

There's also the likelihood that many of the players on the losing team in the AFC championship game on Jan. 24 might bow out of the Pro Bowl game the following Sunday.

just messing with ya latrobe :)

Heath and Keisel for sure. Heath is a stud and having a great season. 3-4 ends always get over looked becasue they don;t have gaudy stats, but Keisel is a monster.

78% ....Amazing

And some of us have been thinking he has disappeared or been dropping balls.

Steelers' Miller among most efficient TEs
December, 30, 2009
By James Walker
As the Pittsburgh Steelers continue to morph into a pass-first offense, one of the biggest beneficiaries this season has been starting tight end Heath Miller.

The five-year veteran has already set new career-highs for receptions (71) and yards (733) in a season. Pittsburgh (8-7) will finish its regular season Sunday against the Miami Dolphins (7-8).

Miller has also been one of the most dependable targets in the league, catching 71 of 91 passes (78 percent) thrown in his direction.

Here are the NFL's most-targeted tight ends heading into Week 17, courtesy of ESPN Stats & Information:

Most Targeted Tight Ends
Player Team Tgt Rec Yds Avg TD
Tony Gonzalez ATL 125 80 837 10.5 6
Dallas Clark IND 123 93 1054 11.3 10
Vernon Davis SF 119 72 876 12.2 12
Kellen Winslow TB 117 72 828 11.5 5
Jason Witten DAL 116 88 954 10.8 1
Antonio Gates SD 110 78 1145 14.7 7
Greg Olsen CHI 102 55 518 9.4 7
Brent Celek PHI 101 69 875 12.7 8
Heath Miller PIT 91 71 733 10.3 5
Zach Miller OAK 88 59 767 13.0 2

None, but if I had to choose, it would be Ward. Played injured the past 2 games and has nice yards.

01-02-2010, 02:20 PM
No one on this team really deserved it. If you lose to teams like oak, kc, and the clowns you should be watching the pro-bowl and the playoffs.: Truth hurts but T's right. Mediocrity begets mediocrity.

01-03-2010, 11:13 PM
IMO, without a doubt it was Ben.

01-04-2010, 12:05 AM
Holmes should have been targeted a lot more. He has some of the best hands in the league. #3 in yards, I think he could have led the league if Ben looked his way more. I love Hines, but these days he's nowhere near as dangerous as Santonio after the catch.
