Light and Welker named to the AFC Pro Bowl squad
Congrats to both.
Yay, I think both were very deserving and I think I predicted both in the Pro Bowl prediction thread.
They wont play but nice for them to be honored.
Cool. Who are they filling in for?
I'd love to see Cassel get added, I'm sure at least one QB won't play in the Pro Bowl. Hopefully Brady will be too busy getting ready for the Super Bowl
That is great. Congrats to Wes and Matt.
Matt seems to be having a great year in 2010.
Still think Logan and Sebastian had good arguments too, though.
Then you'll be pleased to know Logan's half-season of work was enough to get him a starter's spot at the Pro Bowl.
Both will be too busy playing football the following week!
Methinks they're still missing a couple of folks . . .
Too bad they won't be playing in it
If I remember correctly everyone was trashing Light earlier this season (myself included). Funny how things change
Welker is replacing injured Texans wideout Andre Johnson, while Light steps in for Miami's Jake Long, who is also hurt.
Congrats and well deserved.
I think they will be too busy preparing for the Superbowl to actually participate but it is good that they won the award.
Pats send 8 to the pro-bowl this year!
What's the team record btw for most pro bowlers sent in a single season?
People always hate on Light.
But I think throughout his career he has been highlighy underated and I think this has been one of his best years. I think it is important to note that he has pretty much been the only one to protect Brady's blindside.
Awesome, I'm especially happy for Welker who performed admirably coming off ACL surgery.
I have wished for a replacement for Light for quite some time. My only consolation and reason for not getting too hyped up about it is that TFB likes him. If he live with him then I guess I can.
Good for Light and Wes. Hoping they have replacements ready for them too.
Welker's not even the best WR on the Patriots this year, Branch is. Wes is not fully recovered from his injury, both physically (quickness) and psychologically (drops).
Nice Pro Bowl haul for the Pats. I won't be satisfied, though, until Gronk is named.
Oh I wouldn't go that far. Welker is still the best WR on the team. He is more consistent, and 80+ catches is a great season for a guy making an unprecedented return from an ACL tear so quickly. Deion is a good receiver too, but I think Welker is more valuable.
Excellent, let's hope they will be too busy to attend, BTW, Does anyone else think playing the Pro Bowl BEFORE the Super Bowl is foolish? I do, I mean they'll be a number of players named that won't go or can't go.
Separate names with a comma.
