I think they should open Pro Bowl voting right after the season ends. Vote for 2 weeks and then announce the teams during the conference championship games. Why does voting start before the season is even half over, and then end before season does? How do we know now who will have the best full seasons when teams have only played 6 or 7 games? (depending upon whether or not they have had their bye)

I think they do it to give these guys time to make their plans...but it's way too soon. Start it around week 13 and go to week 15.

Ha ha...funny!

But Ike is listed as Ivan every year for the PB voting. That's how I found out it was his real name...I saw it like that, looked it up and sure enough....

I did know that Ike's name is Ivan. I've made the "Ivan the Terrible Hands" joke before. :wink:

I wasn't saying you didn't know. Was just saying how I found out. :)

Right On!

'Tis the season to vote for the Steelers to be NAMED to the PB. None will be playing in it, though...they'll all be playing in the game the week after that!

:Cheers :tt2 :tt1
