Like any rational football fan I hate the Pro Bowl, but how many Pro Bowlers do you think the Pats will have this year? I know this is meaningless, but this time of year is dominated by threads about DUIs and how much Ochocinco is ruining the NFL so i figure why not, might be fun to revisit when the results come out. Plus I think this team has a chance at having a pretty ridiculous number represented. Last year we had 8, I think the following are legitimate possibilities: Brady Lloyd Welker Gronk Hernandez Waters Mankins Solder Vollmer Slater Chung Arrington McCourty Wilfork Mayo Spikes Any other candidates? I don't include any of the RBs as legit candidates because even if one breaks out he's very unlikely to put up enough stats on his own to make it. I don't think any of the rookies or guys like Dowling make it because you have to be other worldly to pull that off. None of the other WRs or TEs are likely to make a big enough impact. The DL seems to be very unpredictable with guys like Scott and Fanene being somewhat unpredictable and the rest are just big beefy bodies at this point. Carter I don't think is coming back, it's a serious injury to come back for for a guy that relies on explosiveness at his age. There's a couple of OLers that I think might be possibilities but that might just be the homer in me. Maybe someone like Gregory could randomly break out but who knows.
