Three Denver Broncos who should have made the Pro Bowl

Three Denver Broncos will be going to the Pro Bowl this year -- the NFL's annual all-star game in Hawaii, and all of them, cornerback Champ Baily, defensive end Elvis Dumervil and rookie linebacker Vonn Miller, are deserving of the honor. They've been highlight films into themselves, providing defensive sparks that have given fans hope for the future.

But there are three other guys on the team who should have made the cut as well -- and guess what? None of them are Tim Tebow.

Ryan Clady
The former first round pick has been one of Denver's most durable starters over the past three years (and one of the only good things Josh McDaniels left behind). But the offensive tackle stepped it up a notch this year as the guy out in front of left-handed Tim Tebow and as part of the reason why the running game actually worked this year.

Willis McGahee
When the Broncos signed former Buffalo Bills and Baltimore Ravens running back Willis McGahee before the season, it looked like yet another desperate attempt to squeeze a little more juice out of a used up veteran. But McGahee started the season strong -- overtaking Knowshon Moreno as the teams' featured back -- and he never looked back. Playing through injury game after game, McGahee has shown determination and grit as in creating a running game for a team that desperately need one. Barring an early injury in the final game of the season, McGahee will exceed 1,000 yards for the first time since he did it in in 2007 (he has 990 right now).

Matt Prater
Denver's kicker started the season a little wobbly -- with a DUI arrest (see our Year in Review, which will be online this afternoon) -- but manged to recover well, winning several games with tough, last-minute field goals, including two fifty-plus yarders against the Chicago Bears. In fact, the Saturday Night Live episode making fun of Tim Tebow has Jesus pointing out that while Tebow may pray to the almighty, Jesus himself worships Prater.

Seriously? No. For a player to be pro bowl-worthy, they have to be more deserving than the people in front of them. McGahee has fewer rush yards, fewer recieving yards, and fewer TDs than any of the AFCs three pro bowl RBs. Exactly which one is he more deserving than? And Prater has fewer points and worse accuracy than Janikowski. Offensive linemen are harder to judge, but RTs dont make the pro bowl. LTs do. Sorry.

Yeah well how about Eli Manning getting in over Matt Stafford???  Stafford has a better QBR, 10 more touchdowns and 2 less interceptions....The NFL has a serious hardon for anything "Manning"

This article is already out of date, McGahee exceeded 1,000 in the Buffalo game and became only the second player to rush for over 1,000 with three different teams.

McGahee has 1,054 rushing yards on the season, not 990.

Oops... you are correct about Clady. Not about Colquitt. Again, he had a good year, but not as good as the guy in front of him. Lechler had a better gross average, better net average, and a higher percentage of kicks inside the 20. All Colquitt had was more punts - not exactly something to be proud of.
