Packer Pro Bowl alternates may surprise you

by
  • Clay Matthews – makes sense. Not surprising.
  • Ryan Grant – makes sense, he’s played well and as usual, he’s getting better as the season goes on.
  • Chad Clifton – some serious crack smoking going on. Clifton’s improved health has helped to stabilize a shoddy O-Line, but Clifton also has committed a huge number of penalties for a veteran and given up his fair share of sacks. This just doesn’t make sense.
  • AJ Hawk – more crack smoking. Hawk has played progressively better with each game, yes, but to throw him into consideration at ILB for the Pro Bowl is ridiculous – especially when you consider his competition at that position (including his very own partner in the middle, Nick Barnett – who has played considerably better than Hawk this year).
