Mack and Patterson made it, both deserved it. Mack maybe not as much as he normally has. Id say popularity was in his favor this season.
I think the biggest Pro Bowl snub for a Bears player is Smith. It was not clear the first few games what we would get from him, if anything it looked like it was going to be a pretty disappointing season. But Roquan has really turned it on. Pace can legitimately take credit for drafting him. Each game he has just stayed solid, racked up some pretty respectable stats, and been a key part of the defense.
Another name, Cairo Santos. Yep, a kicker!!! The Bears seem to have finally replaced Gould. The guy is around 92% this year. Currently has 22 straight FGs without a miss. I believe he only has 2 misses on the year! Tell me how that does not get you a Pro Bowl spot?
Last for me is Hicks. It is night and day with him on vs off the field. He is a wrecking ball every single snap. Always in on the play. Always demanding attention. It is criminal for him to be on th eoutside looking in.
