Morning take: Steelers snubbed?

Posted by ESPN.com's James Walker

Here are the most interesting stories Wednesday in the AFC North:

  • Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette believes there were three "obvious snubs" for the Pro Bowl, which include linebacker LaMarr Woodley, nose tackle Casey Hampton and defensive end Aaron Smith.

Morning take: "Obvious snubs" are strong words. Woodley has the best case of the three. Smith and Hampton are great players, but it's an uphill battle every year for 3-4 linemen to make it to Honolulu.

Morning take: McClain runs extremely hard and has been a great story. He is one of several unsung heroes on Baltimore's team this season.

Morning take: To the winner goes...a lesser draft pick!

Morning take: Houshmandzadeh forgot to add "...in a different uniform."
