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?

Realistic Steelers players with a chance to make the team:

My locks:
Heath Miller
Antonio Brown

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.
