In a few hours, the Pro Bowl rosters for this season will be announced (it’ll be at 5 p.m. Arizona time on the NFL Network, and hopefully azcardinals.com will have the local news ASAP, so check back then). I expect the Cards to be represented well, based on the seasons some players have had and the fan voting. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is a lock, as is safety Adrian Wilson. I think two players who should be locks (but we’re trying to not count our chickens …) are punter Ben Graham and defensive tackle (for Pro Bowl purposes) Darnell Dockett. I also think cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (below, talking to A-Dub) has a chance, although perhaps another step down. And I wouldn’t be surprised if QB Kurt Warner and WR Anquan Boldin are in the alternate mix, as would be FS Antrel Rolle.
That’s another twist to all this. Since the Pro Bowl will be played the week before the Super Bowl, I think alternates will be involved more than ever before. The two teams in the Super Bowl won’t have anyone playing (Cardinals?) and you are also shaving two weeks off of rest meaning some other players might not want to get in the game.
