Post who you think should go and who gets snubbed.
Should: Lynch, Bailey, Nalen, Saurbrun, my homer pick is K. Johnson.
Snubbed: Wilson & Pryce (numbers are lacking but leads a very good front seven unit)
If Wilson does not get it I hope D. Edwards goes as he is very good.

Plummer and Nalen and Lepsis should go.

that polls a toughy. toss up between jake,lepsis and johnson IMO jake deserves it
12-21-2005, 08:20 AM
KJ won't go because fullback is a position that gets voted on reputation and not numbers.
12-21-2005, 08:21 AM
I still think Simon Fletcher deserves to go. :)

Matts been bulldozing people in the run game and doing an awesome job protecting Jake all year. He is one of the most under appriciated Broncos bar none.

Champ, Lynch, Rod, and Al got in:
Bailey, Lynch, Smith and Wilson Headed for Pro Bowl
By Andrew Mason
ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- A quartet of Broncos is Honolulu-bound.
Cornerback Champ Bailey, safety John Lynch, wide receiver Rod Smith and linebacker Al Wilson will represent the Broncos on the AFC All-Star team in the Pro Bowl this coming February, giving the Broncos their largest complement of Pro Bowl players in four years.
Bailey and Lynch represented the team in last year's Pro Bowl, and each have been perennial participants in the game. It will be Bailey's sixth consecutive Pro Bowl, while Lynch is going for the sixth time in the last seven years and his seventh time overall.
For Wilson, the game marks a return to a familiar place, as he'll go back to Aloha Stadium for the fourth time in five years. He participated in the Pro Bowl following the 2001, 2002 and 2003 seasons before missing out last year.
Smith's wait to return to the game was lengthier. He qualified for the Pro Bowl following the 2000 and 2001 seasons, but was left out for the past three years in spite of posting two 1,000-yard seasons in that time. But this year, he's hauled in 79 passes already, which puts him on pace for his highest reception total since his 113-catch tally in 2001.
Denver has had at least one player selected for the Pro Bowl in each of the last 24 seasons, last going without representation in Honolulu in February 1981. The team hasn't had more than three players selected for the game since after the 2001 season, when seven players were selected, with five actually plaing in the game. That capped a seven-year stretch when the Broncos averaged 6.3 selections per year.
The number of Pro Bowlers counts for those who keep track of that sort of thing. But the more important numbers are the ones that rest beside "Denver" in the standings -- 11 and three.
"This is a team in the true sense of the word," Lynch said. "(Head Coach) Mike (Shanahan) talks all the time about playing for each other. We all do that. I think it's represented defensively by other than Champ with all the interceptions, there's nothing statistically that jumps out at you on a lot of people. As a unit, we play very well.
"There's a lot of people deserving (of the Pro Bowl)."
Thursday morning, four got the call.

Well, to begin with, Rod did make it this year. In my opinion, Plummer, Kyle, and Gold were all deserving of a trip this year as well.

I am glad Roddy is finally getting a hint of coverage, IMHO, top 10 possibly top 5 of all time!

My vote would have been Nalen.
