Why the Pro Bowl Doesn't Matter

Because Alan Faneca is going.

At first glance it looks to me like Faneca and Troy both got voted in off of name recognition alone. Willie, Ben, and Harrison also made it, with Harrison being a starter.

Now...

Some might say "oh, you are only being hard on Faneca because of the whole contract thing. Troy is equally undeserving due to his injuries and tendency to miss tackles". Point taken. But Troy was a part of one of the league's best defenses (excluding this past week). Faneca anchored one of the worst offensive lines in the league. And he is a starter in the Pro Bowl! You can bet that he made a ton of money today, because the Cardinals or Seahawks or 49ers or someone are going to pay stupid money to have a "Pro Bowl" starter on their roster. Hopefully they know what that means nowadays.
