Peterson Named To 2011 Pro Bowl Team

Posted by Mike Wobschall on December 28, 2010 – 6:15 pm

The 2011 Pro Bowl rosters were announced tonight during an exclusive television event on NFL Network and Adrian Peterson was the lone Vikings representative. Other Vikings could be added to the NFC’s roster as alternates should injuries or other reasons prevent starters from playing in the game.

Heading into tonight’s action, Peterson has 1,149 yards rushing with 11 TDs. He’s averaging 4.7 yards per carry and hasn’t lost a fumble yet this season (knock on wood). Currently Peterson ranks 11th in the NFL in rushing, but keep in mind that everyone in front of him played a game this past weekend. Peterson has been among the top 3 or 4 rushers during the season.

This will be Peterson’s 4th Pro Bowl honor – he’s made the all-star game in every season of his career.

The 2011 Pro Bowl will be played on January 30 in Honolulu, HI.

    Good for AP. No thanks to the o-line, though.

    Good question, logan. I’m guessing not enough fans voted for him. Perhaps he’ll be an alternate.

    Just remember this, Vick fans.95% of felonies are commited for one of two reasons….love or money. Vick already was a millionaire several times over. He killed dogs for the “love” of it.

    Greenway should be there.

    greenway, EJ, kluwe, and percy should have been there IMO. but good for AP, he deserved it of course.

    Remember that Percy made it last year as a KR, a job which he has not been given this year.

    To be honest, my only other pick for this year would have been Greenway. EJ was doing good, but not at a Probowler level, and I can’t really speak for Kluwe only because I hardly ever pay attention to the punters on any team.

    Greenway should be heading to HI!

    Absolutely agree with you guys that Greenway should be at the prowbowl…if it truly is about the best players, he led to the NFC in tackles!! How can the leading tackler in a specific league not represent?
