The Pro Bowl is such a stupid event for players to go and schmooze with each other in Hawaii. They can do that in the off-season!

I will be honest... this stuff is more on reputation then anything else.

Oher... has not played bad this season but surely not leading probowl vote getter

Haloti Ngata is in my opinion the best interior DL in the game but he has not had a probowl season due to a # of reason

Vonta Leach is the best FB in the NFL but we have not utilized him enough to really call him a probowler this season

Ed Reed.. best Safety to ever play the game but clearly not his most productive season

Ray Rice probably the best RB in the game but several games with 12 touches or less really have given him diminished #'s and the predictability in our play calling has hurt his total output (for sure)

Pollard ad Jacoby Jones... hard to argue... they have played well and earned it.

Really think that KO and TUcker should get some consideration but again this vote is based more on reputation then performance!

Tell Goddell if he wants to fix something to start here.... and leave his hands off of the games that actually matter!

"Ravens fans showed that they want to see their players in Hawaii."

Whoa woah whoa. We want our players in the Super Bowl, not Hawaii.

Oher leading the vote is a complete joke. Harbaugh probably voted day and night for him so after he gets Flacco killed he say "Well he's a pro bowler and a good player". I wish I was allowed in the locker room just one time to vent out my frustrations about Harbaughs childish doghouse. Makes me sick to my stomach

Hey you can't always blame Oher for Joe getting sacked, Joe has the worst pocket awrness I think I've ever seen in a 5th yr QB. How many times have you seen him in shot-gun formation and keep dropping back instead of stepping up when he should know passrushers are running up the field. Oher can only run a guy up the field so much, Joe just needs to get better period! Other then that every LT will get beat everynow and then.

Oher? is this a pity vote? Cause oher has been good and bad... He neutralized demarcus ware....but got burned by Von dumerville.
[/quote]how true, he has not shown a thing out on the field, No second effort. Let's Joe get "BLINDSIDED". no pro bowler to me

@FlBoyRaven Dude, the past 3 weeks where Flacco has gotten sack fumbled, the sack has come from Oher in under 2 seconds. That 2 seconds is COUNTING the dropback. Pocket awareness doesn't even matter here when you just get finished a dropback and are releasing and get sacked.

[/quote] I'd love to see tucker get in though dude is our best rookie. Oher could be an alernate maybe. Jones should get in no doubt Pollard deserves it if he's healthy.

Been wondering this too! He's been a turnstyle for DEs and OLBs to get to Joe. This is truly a popularity contest. The way we are playing I can't even through in my usual "we won't be at the pro bowl" comments. --_--

While I agree.....the Harrison sack fumble was longer......Joe stood there. But nevertheless you are right about Oher. RT he is....

In a Cincy newspaper on Nov 16-

Baltimore's right tackle Michael Oher, who according to Pro Football Focus, has allowed three quarterback sacks, three quarterback hits and 24 quarterback pressures. Comparatively speaking Andrew Whitworth has allowed only one sack, two quarterback hits and nine pressures.

I dont like to bash Ravens O-Lineman but those stats prove Oher doesn't belong at LT

Where is Tucker on this list. Best kicker in the AFC in my opinion, or rrreeaaalllyy close to Vinatieri who is also really good.

With all due respect to Oher, I feel like he got the vote because he was in "that nice movie with Sandra Bullock," not due to his play this year. Thats the only main reason I can think of... I doubt he'll get anywhere with the coaches and players. Tucker deserves a nod for sure, but I think the Ravens recent woes have shifted any national attention away from him.

LOL Which of you idiots voted for Michael Oher? He couldn't block a quadriplegic in a damn wheel chair. OJ Brigance could probably be the NFL sack leader if he got to go against Oher today.

Neither is gonna top Dawson or Janikowski in any phase of voting, and Vinatieri is statistically equivalent to Cundiff on top of that.
