Again, if the timing of the voting was an issue, why is it that 39 of the 40 times that WR have had similar numbers at the time of the voting they either made the Pro Bowl or were only passed over in favor of players with better numbers?
Fan balloting closed Dec. 17. League-wide voting of coaches and players took place Dec. 20. At that time, Dez and Brandon Marshall were the only NFC WR with at least 75 receptions, 1,000 yards and 10 TD. They were the only two NFC wide receivers who ranked in the top 5 in catches, yards, and TD.
Marshall and five others were voted to the Pro Bowl (or as alternates) ahead of Bryant.
