The Carolina Panthers will return to the playoffs this year and may wind up with the NFC's home-field advantage. One reason is wide receiver Steve Smith. Another is running back DeAngelo Williams.
So why can't I find them among the starters for this year's Pro Bowl?
Oh, yeah, there's Smith as a backup to Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin. And there is Williams ... wait a minute ... where is Williams? If you're looking for him you'll have to dial directory assistance. He's nowhere on this year's roster.
And that is wrong.
And this article doesn't even address the fact that Beason is Willis' backup, another travesty in and of itself.
