even though it is a popularity contest, it is still more or less a way of being called "elite"...
The label "All-Pro" comes with more weight. They want to be named to it, sure. But the majority of them sit the game out after they get the nod. They still have the pro bowl selection on their resume even if they don't play.

All 3 QB's on the AFC last year were alternates, 1 for Manning who was in the SB and 2 because of "injury."

Look at how many damn alternates were in it last year. It's a joke. 11 guys missed it because they were in the Super Bowl, there's 37 total alternates. Some of the alternates don't really count...for example they had an alternate for DeSean Jackson as a "punt returner" because he couldn't be in it for 2 positions, but a lot of them are real. Who wants to watch the AFC's "best of the best"...Schaub, Young, and Garrard. We had KERRY FREAKING COLLINS in the pro bowl the year before because Rivers sat out that one too.

yeah I know there are some Cowboys in there that got in as alts last year...

you're right "All-Pro" does mean more...that should get more popularity than being a probowler...

seems like much more emphasis is put into probowl voting than All Pro...maybe that will change now with the SB being after...

Fans, players, coaches vote for the Pro Bowl.

Going to be a shame when Marques Colston misses it this season. He's not even near the top 5 NFC WRs and he's just behind the pace of Roddy White and Reggie Wayne.
