Michigan Men in the Pro Bowl

It looks like the Pro Bowl this year could have quite a few Michigan Men in it, both young and older:

Jake Long received the most votes for an AFC offensive tackle, as well at Hutchinson and Woodson for their respective positions.

What about David Harris and Leon Hall? I think Hall should get the nod and David Harris has played really well this year on one of the league's best defenses. I imagine Tom Brady will get selected unless Matt Schaub beats him out. Philip Rivers and Peyton are probably your top two candidates

I know that there's more to the selection than just fan voting but it's looking good for a few of our guys. Michigan might have as many as six guys in there.

Absolute yes on Harris and Hall.

However, the real story here is 10 starters on the NFC from the Vikings? That is a record, right? I noticed that the article on NFL.com didn't even mention it. Good reporting guys.

He probably doesn't have enough tackles on the season to get in. He has 9.5 sacks though, which is 6th best for NFL linebackers (3rd in AFC). He did have that amazing fumble return TD against Minnesota. So he may get it.
