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.

Meh, Smitty missed the 1st 2 games and Car went 2-0. No biggie, keep them hungry for next year.

Beason being the backup isn't a travesty but Williams not making it is definitely a travesty.

Someone said it in another thread, but it's having your name associated with the Pro Bowl..that's pretty much how I feel about it.

Im much rather our players say home and keep healthy. Hell Mike Vick Made it every year and he could not play worth a crap while Fred Taylor only made it once.

Until they wait until the end of the season to do the voting and only allow players and coaches vote, the probowl is a joke.
