    Vargas Molon Labe!

    because his team is 0-14.

    I agree with you but there is your answer.

    I think we need a sub-forum just for Detroit Lions threads! :p

    Calvin Johnson is a good one.

    Because he sucks at bowling too?

    Aren't pro bowl selections all based on fan voting? Nobody would vote for a Lion this year.

    blyons200 These pretzels are making me thirsty.

    And Brett Farve is a pro-bowler, another WTF? 17 INT's and a team falling apart?

    BTW, they shouldn't elect pro bowlers until after the season is over. According to my calender there are still two weeks left. ( I would say wait until after the playoffs, but that wouldn't be fair to the great players on non-playoff teams.)

    Just an aside, Steve Smith was also suspended for the first 2 games, so he he did all that in 12 games.

    I'd probably take the guy with 10 TDs on a shit ass team with a revolving door a qb, basically doing that all himself and NEVER getting pass interference calls. Call me biased but Calvin is the best receiver in the league hands down

    That may be but the Lions are on 0 TVs outside Detroit and the visiting team. He therefore has 0 fan exposure and solicits fewer votes.

    No way. Anyone who has seen a Houston game this season knows Andre Johnson is the best receiver in the league, no doubt about it. He doesn't run his mouth and act like a jackass either (like a lot of the WR's out there), which is quite refreshing. And it's also why a lot of people probably don't know about him.

    I would like to have him on the Steelers for sure...I agree he seems overlooked sometimes...that team needs to make the playoffs to launch him

    I'm beginning to wonder if that'll ever happen. Houston likes to dig themselves a hole early (0-4 this year) and win late when it doesn't matter.

    Detroit needs a lot of things.

    Which is exactly why they should trade their number one draft pick...unless they're 100% positive Stafford or Bradford will be an elite QB in the NFL.
