Peyton, Dwight, Reggie, and Robert Pro Bowl bound

Predictably, the Pro Bowl cretins that decide this farce of an NFL "All-Star" game picked Antonio friggin Gates over Dallas Clark, even though Clark has better numbers and plays on a team that's relevant. But at least they got Peyton Manning, Reggie Wayne, Dwight Freeney, and Robert Mathis right. Four Pro Bowlers for a team that didn't win their division is pretty good.

That said, despite the Gates selection, the Pro Bowl did a fairly decent job this year. Nice to see Drew Brees, Mario Williams, and the 85-year-old John Carney get some Pro Bowl love. Remember, Carney was just supposed to be a fill-in for Lawrence Tynes. He was retired, and enjoying life after football. Tynes got hurt. NY called Carney. He said yes. Now, he's a Pro Bowler. Go fig!
