New Orleans Saints, NFL 2011 Pro Bowl Results

The Saints will not be repeating their strong pro bowl performance from last season this year round when Drew Brees, Jahri Evans, Jonathan Stinchc0mb, Darren Sharper and Jonathan Vilma were all voted as 2010 participants in the event.

Only one Saint this season officially made the starting NFC roster and it is not probably who you would expect considering the Saints roster is littered with phenomenal talents.

With  162, 597 votes full back Heath Evans has been selected to his first Pro Bowl appearance since being drafted in the third round of the 2001 draft by the Seattle Seahawks.

Evans selection does not immediately stand out considering his season, while not bad, a relatively quiet one rushing for two yards on two carries and catching six receptions for 39 yards and a touchdown so far in 2010.

A grass roots campaign of sorts had to be put in place to get him noticed but none the less he is still a great and deserving player.

Quarterback Drew Brees finished second in voting behind the Eagles Michael Vick with a shade under 1M votes. Likely he may have been higher has his interceptions been a little lower but given how Vick has been received as of late nearly no one could have beaten him.

Except for Tom Brady who received the most votes with 1,877,079 after a season where so far he has completed 66.6 percent of his passes for 3,561 yards and 31 touchdowns to only four interceptions.

The NFC South is putting two others players into the Pro Bowl, wide receiver Roddy White and tight end Tony Gonzalez who lead both their respective positions in voting.

Snubbed once again is Saints wide receiver Marques Colston who has had a dynamite season this year posting 82 receptions for 1,001 yards and eight touchdowns, his fourth one thousand yards season in his five years in the league.

It’s a shame he continues to be overlooked considering he is among the most consistent receivers in the league year in and year out.

You could also make a case for Roman Harper and Sedrick Ellis to the Pro Bowl considering they too hace had huge seasons this year.

Harper has done nothing but make plays this season with 88 tackles, 3 sacks, 1 interception and six forced fumbles. Ellis leads the team in sacks with six and is in the top five in the NFL at his position in total sacks.

Here is a look at all the top vote getters by confernece sourced from NFL.com.
