AFC Pro Bowl: Bob Sanders?
How did this guy make the Pro Bowl roster? He has 91 tackles, one interception, no sacks and a forced fumble. Are the AFC free safeties really that bad? Let's see:
Erik Coleman, NYJ: 100 tackles, 2 interceptions and 1 sack.
Deon Grant, JAC: 59 tackles, 3 interceptions and 1.5 sacks
Chris Hope, PIT: 86 tackles, 3 interceptions and no sacks.
Kevin Kaesviharn, CIN: 78 tackles, 2 interceptions and 1 sack.
Lance Schulters, MIA: 73 tackles, 3 interceptions, 2 sacks and 1 forced fumble.
Troy Vincent, BUF: 61 tackles, 3 interceptions, no sacks and 2 forced fumbles.
Greg Wesley, KC: 61 tackles, 6 interceptions, no sacks and 1 forced fumble.
All of these safeties have, arguably, much better stats than Sanders, especially Coleman, Wesley and Hope. So why did Sanders make the Pro Bowl over these guys?
