Pro Bowl Selection since 2005 - Defensive Ends

 

5 Pro Bowls (2005-2009) Amount of selections:

Julius Peppers - 4
Dwight Freeney - 3
Michael Strahan - 2
Jared Allen - 2
Kyle Vanden Bosch - 2
Jason Taylor - 2
Aaron Schobel - 2
Aaron Kampman - 2
Patrick Kerney - 2
Osi Umenyiora - 2
Berrick Burgess - 2
Michael Strahan - 2
Will Smith - 1
Mario Williams - 1
Robert Mathis - 1
Justin Tuck - 1
Trent Cole - 1
Aaron Smith - 1
Betrand Berry -1

 

Every year there are 3 DE's chosen for each the NFC and AFC. For a different player to be chosen for each slot every year (and complete parity) there should be 30 different players in this list. There are only 19.

 

So to the question asked...do the same players get voted to the Pro Bowl repeatedly year upon year?

To a degree yes, obviously the way the Pro Bowl voting is structured helps this to occur. Not just the fan voting but some writers are guilty of this too.

But often, the players voted to the Pro Bowl do deserve it, and as we have found this year some suffer the number crunch. There are 3 spots and 4 players playing well enough to be selected.
