For the first time since 1999, no Packers players were selected to the 2006 Pro Bowl.
The Packers' absence in the Feb. 12 AFC-NFC game in Honolulu corresponds to their 3-11 record. The players of winning teams are often represented in far greater numbers.
Although they will not play in the Pro Bowl, several Packers have enjoyed strong years in 2005. Donald Driver is tied for 11th in the league in receptions with 74 and ninth in the NFL in receiving yards with 996. Nick Barnett has collected 176 tackles, which is four away from the all-time Packers' single-season record. Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Chad Johnson called Al Harris the second best cornerback in football. Harris has sixteen pass defendes this season and three sacks. Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher have anchored an offensive line which has allowed only 19 sacks all season.
Last year Ahman Green, William Henderson, Marco Rivera and Javon Walker made the Pro Bowl. Henderson and Rivera earned starting nods.
