The Pro Bowl rosters came out yesterday and there are some I expected and other happy to see make the team.The Vikes lead the NFL with 8 selections.On the offense side of the ball, the starter as expected is AD at running back. The Vikes left side of the line will be starting as well, Bryant McKinnie and Steve Huchinson. The backups on offense are QB Brett Favre and Sidney Rice.
I was kind of shocked to see that McKinnie was starting in the Pro Bowl, because of some of his performance in the last month of the season or so.I agree with ESPN, he made it on rep not overall performance. I was happy to see Sidney make the team with the type of breakout season that he is having.
On defense, the starters from the Vikes are DE Jared Allen and DT Kevin William. These are the only two from defense to make the squad.Both defenders are having a good well this season. Both led the NFC in sacks at their position. Allen and Williams are solid Pro Bowl starters.
The special teams player is Heath Farwell.He had led this group to a better year than last season.I think that Harvin would have been a better choice than Farwell.
If everything goes the Vikes way the NFL might have to find replacements due to the Pro Bowl. This season, the Pro Bowl is the week before the Super Bowl at the same location.
