I am writing my Sunday story on whether or not the Seahawks will get any selections to the Pro Bowl. Mike Holmgren said earlier this week that if anybody deserves it, he thinks Marcus Trufant and Walter Jones do. I spoke with both Lofa Tatupu and Julian Peterson, and both said they did not think they played up to their standards and that they weren’t deserving of the honor — though Julian said he would not turn it down if he was bestowed a spot in the game.
In this miserable season, do any Seahawks warrant Pro Bowl selections? Walter Jones should probably get it based on reputation alone, the two sacks he gave up on Thanksgiving Day notwithstanding. Trufant’s interceptions are down, but some of that is a function of opposing QBs throwing away from him and at Kelly Jennings and Josh Wilson. Of course, he also is a member of the worst secondary in the NFL, at least statistically. Holmgren also brought up Olindo Mare, who is 19-for-21 in field goal attempts, with one of the misses coming from beyond 50 yards.
Would you send anyone to Hawaii?
