Saints Nation: 5 Saints Selected to Pro Bowl, But Will Smith not One of Them

5 Saints were selected to the Pro Bowl tonight, but the most surprising news what that Will Smith somehow got snubbed despite posting a career high 13 sacks through 16 games. Talk about being robbed, I don't think Trent Cole or Julius Peppers deserved the nod over Smith based on their play this year. There is no way you can convince me Cole is a more complete end than Smith, and Peppers has 10.5 sacks this season (vs. 13 for Smith).

That said, congrats to: Drew Brees, Jahri Evans, Jon Stinchcomb, Jonathan Vilma and Darren Sharper. This is the first Pro Bowl trip for both Evans and Stinchcomb. The Pro Bowl will be held the week before the SuperBowl this year, with the SuperBowl team players no participating in the game... so hopefully all five of our guys will sit out the game!
