Four Bears are Pro Bowl bound

| 3 Comments | No TrackBacks


Kick returner Devin Hester, defensive end Julius Peppers and linebackers Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs have been selected to the 2011 Pro Bowl.

It's the sixth straight for Briggs, who joins Dick Butkus (eight), Bill George (eight) and Mike Singletary (10) as the only linebackers in franchise history to go to at least six straight.

It's the third Pro Bowl for Hester, who who leads the league with a 17.1 punt-return average and a 35.6 kickoff-return average. He has three punt returns for touchdowns this season.

It's the sixth appearance for Peppers, who becomes the first Bears defensive end to be selected since Richard Dent in 1993.

Urlacher becomes the eighth player in team history to be voted to seven Pro Bowls.

Where's Garrett Wolfe? Why isn't he in the Pro Bowl? This is HORRIBLE! It's like cutting Micheal Okwo.

These guys all deserve the honor. I would perhaps add Johnny Knox as well because he has been a olid and steady performer all year.

Paul Knox is no where near a top WR, he quits on routes, is afraid to take a hit, and can't hold alot of the other NFC wr's jocks.
