We all know the NFL Pro Bowl is a total joke; we need only look to last season when it looked more like a practice scrimmage than a real game. If you're so inclined to vote this year though, and I'm sure I will because that's just what I do, LOL. Here's the link: http://www.nfl.com/probowl/ballot

Please can we table the Ike Taylor for Pro Bowl talk though for this season? :bonk:

Realistic Steelers players with a chance to make the team:

My locks:
Ben
Heath Miller
Antonio Brown

Possibles:
Maurkice Pouncey (if he gets healthy)
Lawrence Timmons (if they let him do more pass rush and less dropping into coverage)
Max Starks (if he stays healthy and has a good year there's potential there for him to make it, maybe as an alternate)
Shaun Suisham (if he keeps kicking the way he has been he should be a no brainer)


Hate to say it but right now other than maybe Timmons, there's no Steeler linebackers worthy of the overrated honor, but there is still a lot of football left and you know how both players and fans tend to vote; on reputation more than a single season.

I dont think Ben is a lock...and sadly it had nothing to do with his play....it has to do with the fan vote. Fans of other teams dont like him...consider him a rapist, yada yada....he's def playing like a pro-bowler, and Im hoping Haley takes the reins off later in the season...

But I agree...should be:

Ben (But Brady, Manning, Schaub will all get sniffs before him probably....)
Heath (once again tho, not a sexy fan choice)
AB (a lock)

thats really all I see...no defenders will go this year IMO

No one on this roster is a lock. Manning, Brady, Schaub will all get votes over Ben (warranted or not), Heath is always over looked, and I don't know why everyone is calling AB a lock. I'm not saying he isn't worthy of going, but the top three leading receivers in the league (Welker, AJ Green, Reggie Wayne) are in the AFC, and there's no way Andre Johnson doesn't get voted (warranted or not).

Ben is the most likely, but I don't see many getting in unless they're alternates that get bumped up for injury/SB.
