    To the Meriweather haters,

    I say that if you expect perfection from a young person than the jokes on you.  

    He makes many more positive plays than the one bonehead play from two games ago, he is consistently good and getting better.  Safeties learn over time how to position themselves to make plays, if he "sux" than he has an awful lot of INT's, game changing hits and 2 Pro Bowl nods to keep him warm at night.

    My only argument as to why he maybe shouldn't have made it would be Chung, he has been our best tackling safety; if all things were equal they both would have gone.

    How did Meriweather and Mankins make the team?

    Meriweather was benched for 4 games and hasn't been very impressive this year and Mankins missed 6 games. -_-...


    This is why no one takes the pro-bowl seriously...-_-

    If all the GM's could take a guard from the AFC to start a team they would take Mankins, it's the fans who screw up the voting.

    How in the heck did Meriweather get the nod over Chung?

    Seriously don't understand, Chung's been the better overall S and wasn't BENCHED for 4 games.

    As for Mankins it's just my feeling but if you miss a 3rd of the season regardless of the reason you shouldn't be elected to the pro-bowl over someone who was there the entire year. Even if he's played like a pro-bowler since the day he came back. Still I'd offer him the same contact they offered him last ear and if he doesn't take it then let him walk.

    I must say though that DMC, Mayo, Wilfork, and Brady are all well deserving and a huge congrats to each

    Wow, all the talk is always "imagine how great we'd be if we had somebody like Nnamdi or Revis?"  Well, now we do, and we are. And the best thing is, those really are the 3 best CB's in the AFC.

    Do you watch the games? Meriweather is not improving. Improving would mean he doesn't tackle his teammates, does what is asked of him (he doesn't so he was benched), and makes more big plays. He hasn't done that this year. Chung is a much better and reliable player.

    Great to see them get the recognition. Is this year's game before or after the Super Bowl?  If its before, hopefully none of them play!

    You know more than all the GM's and coaches in the NFL combined, why aren't you making millions as a draft consultant?  Oh yeah, Starbucks wouldn't let you walk...

    Usually the score at the half of a game this season against the Pats has been 28-3 or 31-3... maybe you should temper your expectations.

    It doesn't make sense to have the pro-bowl a week before the super bowl.  Congrats to all the Pats who were elected but I'm hoping they will be otherwise engaged that weekend preparing for the big game.  I am assuming that the teams that will be playing in the super bowl do not send their guys to the pro-bowl.  Is that correct????  If so, they should move it back to the week after the super bowl.  Kind of stupid that they changed it.

    It actually makes perfect sense in the NFL's eye. Lets face it unless you are 1 of the 2 teams in the SB those 2 weeks is a long time to wait. Also, once the SB is over no one seems to care until the combine and draft come around so why not move the pro-bowl to fill in that 2 week gap where fans of the other 30 teams are still interested in watching and would watch just to kill the time until the SB.

    From the NFL's eyes this increases viewers and hence profit which is win win for all.

         Glad for McCourty, who really earned his spot. But, who cares about who gets picked for the Pro-bowl, unless you're an Indianapolis Colts' fan. Let the other teams win the fantasy football accolades. We Patriots' fans are only interested in winning another SB.

    Mankins missed the first 10 games. He's played in just five games so far. I'm a Mankins fan, but that's crazy. When you allow fans to vote, you get crazy results sometimes.

    Re: 6 Pro Bowlers!

    Meriweather wasn't benched. He didn't start the first two games.

    The rest is very easy. 

    1.) He is the best safety Ne has.
    2.) He is one of the better safeties in the NFL. 

    3.) I gave up arguing the point, but anyone who doesn't recognize this has an axe to grind or simply doesn't know enough about football to weigh in with a credible evaluation. 

    There has been just one TD deep to his portion. Saying Sanders has been better is laughable considering he was getting toasted deep once a game early this season. Meriweather has collected two game balls. Two. 

    But then, the people saying this aren't really watching or being critical. FFS, Page blew a tackle and got burned deep last week and everyone was talking like he could replace Meri. LOL.

    And the guy was selected by other players and coaches, that means a panel of safeties and coaches who recognize this -- not a bunch of dippy fans.

    Re: 6 Pro Bowlers!

    Maybe some people (me included) are being harsh on BM, but I think you're being too easy on him.

    Okay, semantics wise he played the first two games but why didn't he start? Would they sit Brady? Would Brady need to have his starting job taken away because he was freelancing too much (as BM admitted in an interview after the Jets game). Would they sit Mayo?

    in my opinion (I've been a Pats fan since I was born and I don't think the fact that I disagree with you doesn't make me a credible football fan...even Pats coaches disagree (see Patriot Reign) so I think your statement isn't  credible itself) he hasn't improved and hasn't developed into the type of safety that his talent warrants. The very fact that he splits time with a guy you analyzed as not being very good after being a surefire starter last year speaks volumes as to what BB think of him now. No way they'd sit Mayo or McC for 1/3 of the game. Why do they do it with BM? He should be a guy that never leaves the field, and he isn't. 

    Lastly, your point is correct in that he doesn't give up a lot of deep balls. That being said, he does make so AWFUL plays. The first play of last years playoff doesn't happen with a very good safety (that angle he took was just silly). The play against the Packers was not that unexpected for BM as many in the stadium already knew who the culprit was before the replay. 

    He's a good player, but I don't see how any pro-bowler could split time, make many memorable bone-headed plays, or just not improve in general. I think the vote was off of reputation (see R Seymour during a couple of his off years), not because of BM's play.

    Apparently saying someone "sux" at making coffee isn't the same as saying they "sux" at football?  Talk about semantics...

    Re: 6 Pro Bowlers!

    Yeah Wozzy, attacking someone personally doesn't really improve your point. It's possible two people actually disagree.

    BB started out as a ballboy, so maybe he's up to your mental aptitude either. I know you must be CEO of a fortune 500 company, but if that gets tiring maybe you could get a job running the pats. You could base all your signings on consensus, fan voting, and what other people think. You might miss on a special teamer like McCourty once or twice (what a dumb pick that was! I mean?!?) but you'd have a roster of at least a few pro-bowlers.

    Pardon the sarcasm, but I don't really think the GM's or players put a lot of thought into their ballots. I think the eye test of you, me, TCal, and any other big Pats fan are probably more valuable than what they think and I think it's clear that Chung is better (he's certainly asked to do more and has produced more big plays) and BM is at the very least inconsistent.
