Winfield In The Pro Bowl

I know that nobody here wants to see any Vikings players suit up for the Pro Bowl, because that would mean something very sad happens this coming Sunday.

It is noteworthy, however, that Antoine Winfield has been added to the NFC Pro Bowl Roster after Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie suffered an injury last weekend.

The fact that Winfield made it in as an alternate will draw criticisms from many.  He has only played 10 games this season, starting 9.  In many ways, this has been his worst statistical season since he became an NFL starter back in 2001.

We all know the Pro Bowl talent is in there somewhere, and that he makes a big difference when he is playing healthy like he did against the Bengals, but based off of this season alone I could think of about 10 other NFC corners that deserve the honors more than him.

With that being said, Winfield’s talents went unnoticed by the Pro Bowl voters for too many years, so what goes around comes around.
