Does anyone have a chance of making the Pro Bowl for us this year?
Ty Warren should be there. He is having a great year.
Ty Warren is the only patriot having close to a pro-bowl year. Warren is deserving.
My picks: Vrabel and Seymour on Defense and Mankins on Offense.
Tom Brady just may go, too.
I like your Mankins pick, Lobster.
Vince Wilfork might have a case, too. I think.
It would be a crime if Warren doesn't make it.
Seymour has a tougher assignment at RE than Warren does, since the best Guard and Tackle are on the QB's blind side. Also Seymour can play both sides plus NT, while Warren always seems to play only the left. Seymour can still push a double-team backward enough to get a hand on the QB, which obviously takes tremendous strength and skill. My guess is Seymour is border-line Pro Bowl starter and alternate.
Mankins is becoming dominant at LG, but he isn't a Pro Bowl starter yet.
Wilfork I forgot to mention - he is progressing very well and might make it as an alternate this season. Next season he could become a Pro Bowl starter.
Is this a "do" or a "should" question? There is an enormous difference.
For example, Seymour will make the pro bowl but Warren is the guy who should. Brady will make the pro bowl but you can make a case that Manning, Rivers, and Palmer should be the AFC QBs.
If I'm not mistaken, Tom Brady is second in the league with 19 TD passes. Carson Palmer has been playing great lately but struggled for most of the season. While Rivers has played great, LT has a lot to do with his success. Tom Brady better be there.
