We’re about mid-way through the NFL season and things are starting to shape up. Every team comes into the preseason thinking they have a chance at the playoffs and post season success. At this point though it is clear who seems destined to make the playoffs and who has fallen to far behind to catch up.
We’ve seen some players establish themselves as the best this season. As the playoff picture becomes clearer and clearer every week so does potential Pro Bowl rosters. Every player plays for a championship ultimately, after all it is a team sport. Only one team can win a championship, and if you aren’t on that team a trip to Hawaii and the Pro Bowl isn’t a bad price.
The NFL has changed the format allowing fans to vote. In the new format, the lead voters at each position will go to the Pro Bowl regardless of conference affiliation. Essentially, all six quarterbacks going to the Pro Bowl could be from the AFC. The teams will then be divided by a fantasy draft, school yard style. The two lead vote getters will serve as captains.
For these roster projections we’re going on the traditional conference by conference line up.
