The 2009 NFL Pro Bowl roster selections have been revealed, and the San Diego Chargers have five players named to the AFC squad, with another five named as alternates. Interestingly enough, not a single Chargers player was named as a starter, and those selected as alternates might surprise you.
CHARGERS SELECTED TO THE AFC PRO BOWL ROSTER
Kris Dielman, Guard
Antonio Gates, Tight End
Nate Kaeding, Placekicker
Kassim Osgood, Special Teamer
Philip Rivers, Quarterback
CHARGERS SELECTED TO THE AFC PRO BOWL ROSTER AS ALTERNATES
Mike Scifres, Punter
Antonio Cromartie, Cornerback
Darren Sproles, Kick Returner
Marcus McNeill, Tackle
Vincent Jackson, Wide Receiver
We knew it'd be hard for Vincent Jackson to make the team with so many good Receivers in the AFC, but Wes Welker over VJ? Really? As long as Shane Lechler is in the conference, it'll be impossible for Mike Scifres to earn a starting bid, which is a shame. Anyone else find it interesting that Antonio Cromartie makes all these Pro Bowls, yet Quentin Jammer has never even come close to making a Pro Bowl squad? At least Rivers earned his rightful place among Manning and Brady as one of the elite QB's in the AFC. What's your take on the selections?
