Pro Bowl Rosters Announced

By Bryan Jeon

To facilitate your count in how many players made the Pro Bowl from your fantasy football team, we give you the AFC and NFC rosters for the positions of QB, WR, RB, TE, K. (bold = starter)

AFC

QB – Tom Brady, New England
QB – Peyton Manning, Indianapolis
QB – Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh
WR – Randy Moss, New England
WR – Reggie Wayne, Indianapolis
WR – Braylon Edwards, Cleveland
WR – T.J. Houshmandzadeh, Cincinnati
RB – LaDainian Tomlinson, San Diego
RB – Joseph Addai, Indianapolis
RB – Willie Parker, Pittsburgh
TE – Antonio Gates, San Diego
TE – Tony Gonzalez, Kansas City
K – Rob Bironas, Tennessee

NFC

QB – Brett Favre, Green Bay
QB – Matt Hasselbeck, Seattle
QB – Tony Romo, Dallas
WR – Terrell Owens, Dallas
WR – Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona
WR – Donald Driver, Green Bay
WR – Torry Holt, St. Louis
RB – Adrian Peterson, Minnesota
RB – Marion Barber, Dallas
RB – Brian Westbrook, Philadelphia
TE – Jason Witten, Dallas
TE – Chris Cooley, Washington
K – Nick Folk, Dallas

Of course, after rosters are announced, there are always some notable snubs. This is not to be confused with players who deserve it but are not better than those that made the roster, keeping in mind the unfair depth at some positions in a conference over another.

Bryan’s Pro Bowl Snub:

NFC WR – Marques Colston, New Orleans for
NFC WR – Donald Driver, Green Bay

Analysis: The Saints’ top receiver has more receptions (87, 78), yards (1,092, 1,016) and most notably, touchdowns (9, 2) than Driver. Driver wasn’t even Brett Favre’s go-to guy in the red zone, as Greg Jennings had 12 touchdown catches. Next season should be the year for the Hofstra standout, as he has improved on his 1,000-yard rookie season last year and should be Drew Brees’ favorite target among the Saints’ receiving corps for years to come.

And then it can be argued of the depth chart in who should start or not, but we won’t get that picky. So who do you think got snubbed?
