Center Shaun O’Hara was the only New York Giants player to be selected to the NFC’s 2010 Pro Bowl roster today.

Wide receiver Steve Smith was thought to be a lock to be voted in, but was bypassed. 

Instead, Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona), DeSean Jackson (Philadelphia), Miles Austin (Dallas) and Sidney Rice (Minnesota) will represent the NFC at wide receiver.

O’Hara, who was named as a backup to Andre Gurode of Dallas will be making his well-earned second Pro Bowl appearance.

Too bad for Smith, who definitely deserves to go to the Pro Bowl. I guess the Giants just left a bad taste in everyone’s mouth this year.

The Giants are averaging 378 yards per game on offense, which is the 6th highest in the NFL, higher than the Colts, Steelers, Vikings, Chargers, Eagles and Cardinals.

O’Hara didn’t do that by himself.
