Wallace deserves it. Good for him. Wonder if Ben makes it. He should, but they will probably give it to Rivers. Maybe next year, Antonio Brown.

not so sure this year. of the three that always lock it up, one is out, one is having his worst statistical year and the last is has been shown to be mortal on a few occasions. it's entirely possible ben makes it.

Fans of other teams don't like Ben and even some Steelers fans. Rivers is a name they know and associate with being a good QB so he might get in on popularity.

that's a good point. ben is on the most hated list and pro bowl voting is usually nothing more than a popularity contest. too bad. he's having a great year.

Rivers has more INT's than TD's this year. Guys like Matt Hasselbeck, Ryan Fitzpatrick, Andy Dalton, and *gulp* even Mark Sanchez have been having a better year than Rivers. He can't blame the special teams for the Chargers sub .500 performance this year.

I always found it odd that they do the pro-bowl voting this early. The most substantial part of the year is still coming. IMO, they should at least wait until wild-card weekend before the vote. That way, they'd have the full body of work from the whole year.

Anyway, good for Wallace! It would be great to see him get a nod this year.

Well, consider that all of the other sports actually play their All Star game in the middle of their seasons.

Pro-bowl does not mean nothing, but a popularity contest. As do most All-Star games in all sports. Now, being voted All-Pro by your peers. that is HUGE! Maybe Ben will get this.
