Ed Reed: 58 tackles, 0 sacks, 0 forced fumbles, 4 interceptions, 1 touchdown
LaRon Landry: 95 tackles, 0 sacks, 4 forced fumbles, 2 interceptions, 1 touchdown
Eric Berry: 80 tackles, 0 sacks, 0 forced fumbles, 1 interception, 0 touchdowns

Those are the numbers of the AFC Pro Bowl safeties.

Eric Weddle: 89 tackles, 1 sack, 2 forced fumbles, 3 interceptions, 1 touchdown

The Pro Bowl is selected by the fans, coaches and players. Weddle just doesn’t get enough respect around the league for what he does. He is the best in the league and it is sad that he isn’t even considered the best in the division this year., according to the Pro Bowl. He was an All-Pro safety last year and he hardly slowed down this season, tough to believe that the rest of the conference caught up to him.

    the pro-bowl is a popularity contest. ie you ( or your team) have to be mentioned, a hundred times on the NFL network, before you can be considered, pro-bowl worthy.
    remember how many pro-bowlers came from the chargers, when they were “Superbowl” contenders? Win games. become Superbowl contenders again. Weddle will get his props.

            like i said getting mentioned on NFL network helps a lot. it’s a popularity contest. also KS has a really strong fan base. really strong…
            when weddle plays the position, he’s playing really good sound football. it’s not flashy, make the highlight reel on three different channels. it’s not the, do the stupid end-zone, sack dance highlight. it’s just Weddle playing good football, like a professional football player. And i love him for it!
            When weddle get’s some help in the back-field, image how his recognition, for what he does, will elevate.

            It is like you say. Professional. If he had a lights out dance or something like that, then he may be in the dang game. Now, he will just have to keep balling out under the radar and surprising everyone else while he does it. Best safety in the league!
