Vote: Which Pro Bowl snub hurts most?
The 2004 Pro Bowl roster has been announced and, as always, is not without controversy. Check out credentials for five guys not selected for the Pro Bowl and then vote in the poll on the left to tell us who really got the shaft.
Three Bucs are guaranteed a trip to Hawaii's main event, but a few teammates may eventually get to join them, including the highlight-happy McCardell. He and punter Tom Tupa are second alternates, while CB Ronde Barber is a first alternate.
Rucker leads the Panthers with a career-high 12 sacks this season. Rucker was beaten out in voting by St. Louis' Leonard Little, Tampa Bay's Simeon Rice and the New York Giants' Michael Strahan. Lack of publicity early in the season could have hurt the Pro Bowl campaign of this worthy workhorse.
Tomlinson leads the NFL with 2,011 combined yards. But he is only fourth in rushing and lost a potential Pro Bowl spot to the league's top three rushers: Jamal Lewis of Baltimore, Clinton Portis of Denver and Priest Holmes of Kansas City.
