Romo Gets Pro Bowl Nod in NFC, Brady Doesn't in AFC

A half-season of starts was enough for the Dallas Cowboys' Tony Romo to become a Pro Bowl quarterback.

The Pro Bowl selections have been announced and Romo made the NFC team, along with fellow quarterbacks Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints and Marc Bulger of the St. Louis Rams.

The AFC quarterbacks are the Indianapolis Colts' Peyton Manning, the Cincinnati Bengals' Carson Palmer and the San Diego Chargers' Philip Rivers. In his first season as a starter, Rivers has helped the Chargers to a 12-2 record and he gets the Pro Bowl nod over Tom Brady, the three-time Super Bowl winner who has the New England Patriots in first place in the AFC East at 10-4.

He wasn't selected for the Pro Bowl (Brady) because when he WAS selected last year, he snubbed it, cried injury, and then romped around Pebble Beach for at least 72 holes with his dad during the Pro Bowl(Includes practice holes). I was there and followed him for a few holes, he was healthy as a horse. WHY ISN'T ANYONE SAYING THE TRUTH HERE, VOTERS WERE PAYING HIM BACK AND SNUBBING HIM FOR HIS PREVIOUS YEAR SNUB!! SICK OF HEARING THAT HE WAS SNUBBED!!
