    5 Steelers will head to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii

    Strong safety Troy Polamalu and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger are among five Steelers that have made the AFC Pro Bowl team.

    Polamalu, center Maurkice Pouncey and wide receiver Mike Wallace have been named starters in the annual all-star game that will be played a week before the Super Bowl in Hawaii. Roethlisberger is a reserve and wide receiver Antonio Brown made the team as a kickoff returner.

    Outside linebacker James Harrison is a first alternate for the AFC squad, while outside linebacker LaMarr Woodley and free safety Ryan Clark have been named second alternates.

    The Steelers' hope is that none of their player suit up for the game as it means they will be preparing for the Super Bowl.

    Polamalu was selected to his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl. Roethlisberger and Pouncey are two-time Pro Bowl selections while Wallace and Brown were named to the team for the first time.

    Congrats indeed to Ben, Maurkice, AB, Mike Wallace and Troy. Also props to Ryan, Silverback and Wood.

    It's disgusting that Ike still doesn't make the pro bowl. Even if it is nothing more than a popularity contest and a free trip to Hawaii or Florida for the winners, he should still be in it based on his play.

    Nobody watches it on TV any more, everyone knows it's a joke.

    Ike Taylor belongs on this team. His stats are very comparable with Champ Bailey. Ike covers the other team's top receivers and really outside of Probowler AJ Green, he has shut down every other target he covered.

    I haven't watched the pro-bowl in years. It's a glorified scrimmage and will not watch it until Ike is voted in. The guy is a complete CB and it's horsesh*t that he is skipped over again.

    Ike not making the probowl is just more proof that all it is is a popularity contest. Nobody outside of Steeler Nation votes for Ike because nobody hears about him, and yet he shuts down some of the best WRs in the league game after game after game.
