    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.

    Gronk
    Hernandez
    Waters
    Mankins
    Vollmer
    Slater
    Wilfork
    Mayo

    Chung, Lloyd are dark horses... but you always have to get past the top 2 in Reed and Polomalu for safteys.

    Other dark horse candidates are McCourty and Hightower.

    Nice answer, but they can be named to the Pro Bowl and still not play in it. ;)

    My List:
    Brady
    Lloyd
    Welker
    Gronk
    Waters
    Mankins
    Solder
    Slater
    Wilfork
    Mayo


    Just missing the cut
    Hernandez: I see him having less of an impact this year with the added WRs. Being this is a popularity contest guys like Gates will beat him out anyway
    Vollmer: He was battling injuries issues last year and while I hope he has a healthy season I dont think he'll play a full 16 games
    Chung: Same for Chung with the injuries
    Arrington: Poised for a down year now that teams see his ability
    McCourty: Had his down year and should step up, but probably not enough to make the probowl.
    Spikes: Will lose some reps to Hightower
