The game will be played in Hawaii on Jan. 29, 2012, and though this roster most likely will turn over a few times (and alternatives will be added to the list to fill out the roster), it's still an honor for anybody's name to be included on this list.

The 2012 Pro Bowl teams unveiled

And while im on the subject, lets talk about Romo. This guy folds like a lawn chair anytime
the games on the line! Between manning and stafford they have 9 or 10 comeback wins this
year!!so no more talk of romo. There are a couple of snubs in the nfc, I gotta go with london fletcher
from washington, and clif avril from detroit, there is a couple more but ill stop now.

Are you kidding me??? Manning over Stafford???people need to get a clue!!!
And to the poster who says manning led his team on all these 4th quarter drives, Dude, the
lions have come back from deficits of 14 or MORE 4 times this year for wins!! NO ONE HAS
EVER DONE THIS BEFORE, NO ONE! let me make this clearer,AT NO TIME IN ALL OF THE HISTORY
OF THE NFL HAS ANY TEAM DONE THIS! if the dude's name wasn't manning he wouldn't even be
on the pro bowl roster!!Stafford's got more td's more att's, more completions, more yards, no contest
Damn ballot box stuffers in N.Y.
I hope the Lions get to see the vagiants in the playoffs!!!

i have a feeling this argument (stafford vs. eli) will be settled on the field in the playoffs. unfortunately for eli, he doesn't have a strong running game or defense to bail him out this time. i predict eli will be back to his chucking & ducking ways vs. suh & co. 2 or 3 INTs and low completion percentage. provided they beat the cowgirls, that is..

stafford has johnson to throw to enough said about that. eli has no running game. a defense that didn't exsist except for JPP to help out with field position. eli lost 3 WRs to season ending injuries and manningham was on and off the injured list every week. the WRs, TEs, and RBs averaged 6 drops a game. eli created victor cruz into an absolute beast and cruz isn't 6'6 with a wing spand of an airplane. granted stafford is a great QB, however eli is just as good if not better and had ALOT less to work with. not to mention newton has less passing yards, less TD passes, lower completion %, and more INTs then both eli and stafford. sooooooooo anything else you need me to throw out there to prove your theory wrong??

Newton > Manning = Stafford > Romo is how I see it. Hopefully next year Newton and Stafford will get more respect

Eli has 10 fewer TDs and 2 more INTs than Stafford. Stafford threw 9 of his 14 ints in the three weeks he had a glove protecting the split on his broken finger on his throwing hand. Eli had a hangnail at one point. No way does Eli belong in the probowl this season over Stafford.
