KANSAS CITY, Mo. (Jan. 27, 2006) -- Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Trent Green was put on the AFC's Pro Bowl roster, replacing injured New England quarterback Tom Brady.

It was the second Pro Bowl selection for Green, who also made the AFC team after the 2003 season.

Green threw for 4,014 yards and 17 touchdowns this past season, completing 62 percent (317-for-502) of his throws.

He finished the year with a 90.1 quarterback rating, his fourth straight 90-plus season. Green is the only active quarterback to do that and only the third in NFL history behind Steve Young and Brett Favre.

Green's selection gives Kansas City six Pro Bowl picks, although offensive tackle Willie Roaf is injured and will not play. The others are running back Larry Johnson, tight end Tony Gonzalez, and guards Will Shields and Brian Waters.

The game is scheduled for Feb. 12 in Honolulu.

Because he's got to have some sort of consolation prize since the SB that the league practically handed to him got sniped away from him...LOL :rolleyes:
 
Um, he's still the highest rated passer in the regular season? Just a hunch.

But how? I mean....he didn't have the greatest season (for him)....I didn't think he was even in the top 5 statistically?

I don't like him either, but the numbers don't lie.

meh...numbers schnumbers...Get someone with personality! :D
Lol...you got that right....Manning reminds me of....a piece of cardboard :eek:
 
Wait, so if the Pro Bowl is about personality, you'd rather have Trent Green???
 
Not me personally...

I'm just saying I'm sick of the Manning clan, all together...

And your saying of "numbers don't lie" they often don't show the full picture either...I mean, what was it 5 games before he actually had thrown a td?

Edit: and besides, the probowl is just as much of a popularity contest as a "quality" contest...Why not have it be about personality?
