    SUMMARY: Though no Titans players were voted to play in the Pro Bowl, four have been added as alternates. Rookie QB Vince Young was named as was six-time Pro Bowl C Kevin Mawae, S Chris Hope and Pacman Jones at returner. The NFL goes up to four alternates deep per position, and QB Steve McNair and DE Kyle Vanden Bosch wound up playing last February as injury replacements. Coach Jeff Fisher said that he was surprised no Titans were named for the third consecutive year. "When you get off to a slow start, people don't pay attention to you. We didn't put anybody in the Pro Bowl when we reached the championship game," he said, referring to the 2002 season when they reached to AFC championship game.

    Honestly I don't think Bulluck had a probowl year this year, of course some of the players selected for his positon didn't either, but still.

    2.5 sacks for an OLB isnt good enough.

    Bulluck deserved it over both Merriman and Thomas. He has more tackles than both of them, and Merriman does steroids.

    I was surprised a 'roid abuser like Merriman got in. I think it's BS that these commisioners of sports talk about wanting to put an end to steroids, but yet someone who blatantly cheated to get where he is, is in an all-star game. Another interesting point is, the whole thing got minimal to no coverage. What with the whole baseball problem, you'd think some red flags would go off with this. Maybe the NFL tried to save face and put a muzzle on the media from blowing it up.......but that's a whole different issue.

    That aside, would be crazy if Vince went to the Pro-Bowl. However, I feel Brady deserves it more, even though I despise Brady and think he was the most over-hyped, product for awhile.
