Urlacher On Pro Bowl: It's All About Popularity

Bears' linebacker Brian Urlacher isn't upset about not making this year's Pro Bowl and claims that the whole ordeal is a popularity contest.

"If people like you, they're going to vote for you," Urlacher said. "That's all there is to it. As a player, I vote for guys I like, not necessarily guys who have good years. If there's a center who's going to keep Olin Kreutz out of the Pro Bowl, I won't vote for him. I don't know if all teams do that, but that's the way I do it."
