Inside The Bills

Other Pro Bowl possibles

Posted by Chris Brown on July 11, 2012 – 10:35 am

As we took a precursory look at prime Bills candidates for the Pro Bowl for the 2012 season we had to whittle down the list to just a handful. Here are a few others on Buffalo’s roster that could merit Pro Bowl consideration with strong seasons.

Scott Chandler – Had he not suffered a high ankle sprain and maintained his torrid touchdown pace, it would’ve been difficult for AFC voters to ignore his production last year. Another year of seasoning in Buffalo’s offense is only going to lend to more production this year.

Marcell Dareus – He’s on a defensive line that might get him overshadowed by more veteran performers (e.g. both Williams), but if he can dominate week in and week out he could bust down the Pro Bowl door.

Andy Levitre  – He’s one of the only 2009 draft choices to have appeared in all 48 games of his career. On durability alone he should merit Pro Bowl consideration, but his chances will hinge on Buffalo’s offensive success and won-loss record.

Rian Lindell – A few seasons ago Lindell hit 23-of-25 field goals for a better than 92% success rate and did not go to the Pro Bowl. A high-scoring season along with a quality won-loss record for the team could finally get him a Pro Bowl nod.

Shawne Merriman – Having been to the Pro Bowl three times already helps his cause, so if he can put together a productive season he stands a very good chance of returning.

C.J. Spiller – Depending on how things shake out in sharing the workload in Buffalo’s backfield, if Spiller has enough highlight reel plays he could earn some consideration, but Fred Jackson’s presence at the same position would likely eat into whatever support Spiller might garner.

George Wilson – He’s well respected around the league and he makes plays. A solid season with a strong team won-loss record could make his uncommon career position change complete.

Other Bills in Pro Bowl hunt

Posted by Chris Brown on November 17, 2011 – 12:38 pm

As we showed Wednesday Fred Jackson is the 8th leading vote getter among NFL players when it comes to fan Pro Bowl voting. He also leads all AFC running backs among fan voting. Here are some other Bills players that are in the hunt in fan Pro Bowl voting to this point, but could use a bit more support.

Ryan Fitzpatrick is 3rd among AFC quarterbacks and needs more votes.

George Wilson is 2nd among AFC strong safeties, but needs more support to catch Troy Polamalu.

Nick Barnett is 3rd among AFC inside linebackers, but needs a lot of help to catch Indy’s Pat Angerer on a Colts defense that has not been good at all.

Corey McIntyre is 5th among AFC special teamers and needs some votes as well.

So do your stuff Bills fans and get voting right here.

Pro Bowl names similar

Posted by Chris Brown on October 27, 2011 – 11:17 am

While we profiled some of Buffalo’s legitimate Pro Bowl candidates for the AFC squad this season, so too apparently did the folks at ProFootballFocus. They did the AFC and NFC, but a lot of their candidates included the same Bills we had on our list.

The PFF analysts had Eric Wood, Andy Levitre, Stevie Johnson and Fred Jackson like we did. On defense they also had Jairus Byrd, who is having a good season. We had George Wilson. Even though they didn’t name Ryan Fitzpatrick, they did mention him and how a lot of PFF staffers were shocked he wasn’t listed.
