Post ProBowl Ballot
Vote for Lions players at:

http://www.nfl.com/probowl

Looking over the stats and the number of votes you get at each position there are a number of Lions players that should get consideration:

Shawn Rogers - interior lineman (perhaps the Lions MVP thus far)

James Hall - defensive lineman (near the top of the NFC sack list)

Eddie Drummond - kick returner (good average on kickoffs)

Roy Williams - wide receivers (R.O.Y. plus 5 TDs thus far)

Joey Harrington - quarterback (what? read below) :shock:

3 QB's make the NFC roster. I decided to take a look at the QB ratings for the NFC and this is how they came out:

1) D. Culpepper (He's in so far)
2) D. McNabb (He's in as well)
3) J. Harrington (WOW - but lets see everyone else)
4) B. Favre (6 INTs to Joey's 3)
5) T. Rattay (49ers are terrible)
6) K. Warner (only 4 TDs)
7) M. Bulger (10 TDs like Joey but 7 INTs)
8. V. Testaverde (can't vote for grandpa)
9) A. Brooks (the aint's aren't doing it)
10) B. Johnson (now a 3rd stringer)
11) J. McCown (4 TDs & 4 picks)
12) M. Vick (more picks than TDs)
13) M. Brunell (will he hang onto his job?)
14) M. Hasselbeck (more picks than TDs)
15) R. Grossman (out for season)
16) J. Delhomme (10 INTs so far)

After looking at all the stats I had to vote Culpepper, McNabb and Harrington as my 3 picks for the NFC QB. I couldn't believe my own clicking. BTW - the Lions haven't had a ProBowl QB in over 30 years.

Who was the last pro bowl QB for the Lions? Bobby Layne is all I can think of.

Quarterback Greg Landry went to the ProBowl for the Lions in 1971.

His stats weren't that impressive either, he hit on 52% off his passes with 16 TD and 13 INTs. The Lions also only finished 7-6-1 that year.

Still he made it and no other Lions QB has made the ProBowl since.

I was thinking the exact same thing when I was voting. I ended up voting for Harrington actually because he has better stats than the other QBs, and is winning games for the team. I didn't vote for Roy, but I did for Joey, Eddie, James, Shaun, and Brock, as Brock has played very well this season, just hasn't been shown statistically. Plus, I don't like Darren Sharper that well :-)
