2012 NFL Pro Bowl Voting: No Eagles among the leaders

Rich Schultz

The NFL has released the most recent results of the fan Pro Bowl voting and it should come as no surprise that the Eagles are not represented at all.

I suppose if you wanted to look at one position where an Eagle could have an argument, it's kicker, where David Akers is leading despite having a terrible season. He's hit on just 70.4% of his attempts this year, 2nd worst in the NFL. In fact, not only should Akers not be on the Pro Bowl roster, he may not even be on the 49ers roster for much longer. The Niners are auditioning kickers this week.

Meanwhile, Alex Henery has been the most accurate kicker in the NFC hitting on 20 of 21 attempts. He also has the 2nd most FGs made between 40-49 yards this season (9). Over the past 2 years, Henery is second only to Josh Scobee in terms of accuracy and last week he eclipsed Akers' own Eagles record of 17 straight FGs without a miss.

All that said, when your only real argument as far as Pro Bowl snubs is a kicker... that should tell you something about how bad things have been.
