Matt Schaub

Leads the league in passing yards, and yards a game.

Was that not enough for the committee and fans to induct him into his first ever Pro Bowl? Obviously not.

Thomas Jones

Running the ball for the Jets ain't easy, Jones is fourth in the league in rushing yards behind Stephen Jackson, Adrian Peterson and Chris Johnson. No love for Jones? He ran for 1,324 yards right before your eyes, and crossed that line for 12 touchdowns, but that's not enough.

Santonio Holmes

One of the best wideouts in the game, right here. How did you not vote him in? He has 1,243 recieving yards, a league high 21 receptions that have gone for 20 or more yards, but Santonio you have to stay home.

Tony Gonzalez

The best tight end to ever play football. Made big contributions to this Atlanta offense, has 6 touchdowns and 80 receptions. Why doesn't Tony Gonzalez get in? 

London Fletcher

A very great Linebacker, that has accumalated 134 tackles this season. That is second best in the NFL. You can proabably blame it on the teams record for why he doesn't get in, but he deserves it.

Lamaar Woodley

Another outstanding linebacker, this one is from a good team. He has 11.5 sacks, a forced fumble, and a touchdown.

So where did things go wrong? Could fans maybe be voting for particualry who ESPN showcases, or maybe who is always on tv playing in primetime game rather than players that's working hard and trying but no one can see what they've achieved.

There is many problems with the Pro Bowl voting system, it was always be a fun game to watch, just don't know if i can trust that they'll put the best players on the field
