    Vikings add another Pro Bowler

    The Minnesota Vikings already had nine Pro Bowlers.

    Now they have 10.

    The Vikings have announced that cornerback Antoine Winfield has been added to the NFC team. Winfield qualified despite missing six regular-season games with a foot injury, and despite being limited in several others after returning from the injury.

    Though the announcement doesn't identify the player Winfield will replace, he's undoubtedly standing in for Cardinals cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who suffered a knee injury in Saturday's playoff loss to the Saints.

    The other NFC cornerbacks are Asante Samuel and Charles Woodson.

    Of course, the Vikings are hoping that Winfield and his nine teammates will have to be replaced for the Pro Bowl, which will be played a week before the Super Bowl. Pro Bowlers who are also Super Bowlers won't be playing in the All-Star game.


    Is the NFC CB crowd so diluted that Winfield deserves it more than anyone else?

    Winfield, seriously????? That was a total reputation move. They really need to figure out a way to get the people in that deserve to go.

    Jenkins deserved it more than a player who started a total of nine games all season.

    I agree, Jenkins played great this season. He was aggressive and pretty much lock down, IMO played better than any DB on the Boys this season. It's also too bad that the Pro Bowl coaches aren't allowed to pick their utility player from their own team, L.P. Ladouceur deserved to be the long snapper.

    Yeah, this is starting to remind me of 2007 with the 'Boys. Giving all those guys (maybe half deserved Pro Bowl births) led to a big overhyping of the talent on that team. At least most of these Vikings did earn it. Our 2007 Cowboys were talented, but nothing remotely like those Pro Bowl births would indicate. I think S Roy Williams even made it....which was carzy at that stage of his career.

    Another slap in the fact to Jenkins. He clearly was far better than this guy all year but that's how it goes I suppose.
