After the Pro Bowl rosters were announced Tuesday evening, I asked three of those who were honored which players were snubbed in the voting. Shockingly, each of them said, "No one."
That's not to say some selections didn't raise eyebrows. It was more a statement that perhaps more than in any recent year the fans, coaches and players -- who had an equal third in the voting -- got the team as right as possible.

The voters got it right in this case, although they left room to argue at other positions. Following are some players who should have been on the teams but are not:
• Eagles cornerback
• Minnesota wide receiver
• Patriots wide receiver
• Redskins middle linebacker
• Falcons tight end
• Colts safety
• 49ers noseguard
• Bengals middle linebacker
