NFL: The 5 Biggest NFC Pro Bowl Snubs
There is always controversy surrounding the Pro Bowl selections, as there should be. This season is no different. I've picked out the five guys whom I think got snubbed the most in 2011. Feel free to let me know who you agree on and who you think I got wrong.
Also check out my five biggest AFC snubs.
No. 5: Aldon Smith, LB/DE, San Francisco 49ers
Smith was an integral part of the best defense in football in 2011. He was the Von Miller of the NFC. He should have easily made the NFC Pro Bowl roster, at least as an outside linebacker.
No. 4: London Fletcher, LB, Washington Redskins
Fletcher leads the NFL in tackles, enough said.
No. 3: Sean Weatherspoon, LB, Washington Redskins
Weatherspoon was one of the most active linebackers in the entire league this season. This is just another example of a talented young guy being pushed over for a veteran (Brian Urlacher).
No. 2: Darren Sproles, RB, New Orleans Saints
No. 1: Matthew Stafford, QB, Detroit Lions
As I stated in a previous piece regarding NFC Pro Bowl selections, Stafford deserved a Pro Bowl bid over Manning because his team has clinched a playoff berth for the first time in several years and he's been more consistent.
Stafford earns the biggest snub of the NFC award.
