A bit more accurate as they (try) to analyze and crunch numbers.
They're not as perfect as they think they are over there at PFF, but they're a lot better than the voters.
Quarterback: Peyton Manning (DEN) and Philip Rivers (SD)
Backups: Russell Wilson (SEA), Drew Brees (NO), Matthew Stafford (DET) and Tom Brady (NE)
Running Back: LeSean McCoy (PHI) and Jamaal Charles (KC)
Backups: Eddie Lacy (GB), DeMarco Murray (DAL), Adrian Peterson (MIN) and Marshawn Lynch (SEA)
Full Back: Anthony Sherman (KC) and Mike Tolbert (CAR)
Wide Receiver: Antonio Brown (PIT), Calvin Johnson (DET), Brandon Marshall (CHI) and Andre Johnson (HOU)
Backups: DeSean Jackson (PHI), Alshon Jeffrey (CHI), Jordy Nelson (GB) and Josh Gordon (CLE)
Talk about competitive. We could have gone any number of ways here so we’ll understand fans of Anquan Boldin, A.J. Green and Demaryius Thomas siding against this. As it is can you really argue against any of those selections?
Tight End: Jimmy Graham (NO) and Vernon Davis (SF)
Backups: Jason Witten (DAL) and Tony Gonzalez (ATL)
Tackle: Joe Thomas (CLE), Andrew Whitworth (CIN), Demar Dotson (TB) and Phil Loadholt (MIN)
Backups: Jordan Gross (CAR) and Joe Staley (SF)
Guard: Evan Mathis (PHI), Josh Sitton (GB), Louis Vasquez (DEN) and Larry Warford (Det)
Backups: Brandon Fusco (MIN) and Travelle Wharton (CAR)
Center: Alex Mack (CLE) and Chris Myers (HOU)
Backups: John Sullivan (MIN) and Jason Kelce (PHI)
Defensive End: Robert Quinn (SL), J.J. Watt (HOU), Calais Campbell (ARZ) and Cameron Jordan (NO)
Backups: Greg Hardy (CAR) and Cameron Wake (MIA)
Defensive Tackle: Gerald McCoy (TB), Ndamukong Suh (DET), Jurrell Casey (TEN) and Kyle Williams (BUF)
Backups: Dontari Poe (KC) and Marcell Dareus (BUF)
Inside Linebacker: NaVorro Bowman (SF) and Patrick Willis (SF)
Backups: Derrick Johnson (KC) and Karlos Dansby (ARZ)
The big controversy. Have we forgot about Luke Kuechly? Not so and while the world likes to pin the success of a unit on one player, the truth is the Panthers’ defense is more about the collective than any one individual. So while Kuechly has played well, we’re not going to let the hype do the 49ers duo, the excellent Johnson and the criminally underrated Dansby out of a spot. Kuechly, Kiko Alonso, Sean Lee and Stephen Tulloch were all considered for the final spot, but the playmaking of Dansby (he leads his position with eight sacks and 10 pass break ups) made our minds up for us.
Outside Linebacker: Lavonte David (TB), Justin Houston (KC), Robert Mathis (IND) and Vontaze Burfict (CIN)
Backups: Brian Orakpo (WAS) and Thomas Davis (CAR)
Cornerback: Darrelle Revis (TB), Brent Grimes (MIA), Richard Sherman (SEA) and Patrick Peterson (ARZ)
Backups: Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie (DEN), Keenan Lewis (NO), Vontae Davis (IND) and Joe Haden (CLE)
Strong Safety: Eric Berry (KC) and T.J. Ward (CLE)
Free Safety: Devin McCourty (NE) and Earl Thomas (SEA)
Kicker: Nick Folk (NYJ) and Justin Tucker (BAL)
Returner: Cordarrelle Patterson (MIN) and Golden Tate (SEA)
Punter: Shane Lechler (HOU) and Johnny Hekker (SL)
Special Teamer: Justin Bethel (ARZ) and Jeremy Lane (SEA)

So, Phil Emery said that Kyle Long got picked as an alternate at guard.
Kyle Long was in the middle of the pack this season. He wasn't even the best guard on his team! As a Bears fan, I'm happy with his play for a rookie, but the Pro Bowl? Is it because of who his daddy is? Evan Mathis and Larry Warford were top 3 guards and still get no love. Pro Bowl continues to be a joke.

Must be good to live off of last year and the commercials.
Two Texans, zero Jets lol. For Miami's sake, they gotta hope Wilkerson doesn't get a hold of the snub list before Sunday's game.
EDIT: Oh Watt made it via the fan vote....god what are the fools watching?
Your reliance on the sack statistic is just...no. Just no. And they do have the same number, btw. Wilkerson does not have more. If you want to look at stats that don;t tell the whole story, we can also use tackles, passes defensed, or forced fumbles...all of which have Watt leading Wilkerson. Your argument about how good their teams are is even worse. It's the pro bowl, not fantasy football. They take individual defensive players, not entire units.
JJ Watt should be the DPOY, let alone deserving of a pro bowl spot. Wilkerson was damned good, but Watt blew him away. Watt was the best defender in the NFL. No one noticed and decided he all of a sudden isn't dominant because he got pressures instead of sacks and played on a team that turned into a dumpster fire.

No second team QB as Manning was a unanimous choice. There were also a lot of ties for the second team defense.
