Rolle miffed over Pro Bowl snub

Many felt Giants safety Antrel Rolle was deserving of a trip to Hawaii, including Rolle himself.

Voters chose Seattle safeties Kam Chancellor and Earl Thomas over Rolle and others. The Seahawks currently have the league’s top defense against the pass.

Rolle was named as an alternate and can still be named to the squad if the Seahawks go to the Super Bowl as Chancellor and Thomas will need to be replaced.

Rolle leads all NFL safeties in INTs with six and the Giants in total tackles with 93. He also has 2 sacks and a fumble recovery.

If it didn't matter (being selected to the Pro Bowl) then why is he so upset. Don't kid yourself, it matters a great deal to Rolles as he is a product of the me, myself and I club. He had a very good season and one could argue him not being selected, but his words clearly display someone who does care and I'm sure it bothers him more because he most likely lost a bonus in his contract if he made the Pro Bowl.

He deserves to be there. Great season for him with the #'s to match.

Sorry Antrel but players on good teams always get more consideration for the Pro Bowl.

Doesn't there have to be one player to represent each team in the Pro Bowl?


Does anybody care about the Pro-Bowl? (not me)

@cole3244 Antrel may like to talk a lot, but he plays his heart out every Sunday and never takes a play off. He's a team player on the field.

@rico You're probably thinking of the MLB All Star Game with every team being represented.
