Bears’ Briggs spills the beans on his Pro Bowl selection

The 2011 Pro Bowl rosters will be unveiled on NFL Network at 7:00 p.m. ET Tuesday.  But Bears linebacker Lance Briggs has spilled the beans on the process, announcing via Facebook that he has made it onto the NFC team once again.

“Want to thank the fans, my peers, and the coaches for voting me to my 7th straight pro bowl,” Briggs said, via NBCChicago.com.  “Truly is a blessing.”

Briggs, 31, undoubtedly will use the honor to support his ongoing quest for a new contract.

We’ll post the full team as soon as it’s announced.  And more individuals if they blab before then.

    Even as a Bears fan this feels wrong.

    You can bet that you won’t see a single Green Bay Packer in the Pro Bowl. Nope, they will playing in the Super bowl instead.

    Well at least Bears fan’s have something to cheer about… And how much of an ego maniac is Briggs for making this early announcement and making sure we all know he has been to 6 previous Pro Bowls

    Bears selections:

    Bears Defense – Briggs, Urlacher

    Bears Offense – Never mind

    I hope Stafford makes it.. He deserves it.

    His premature post on facebook might be a little tacky but the context of it is classy.

    Tim Tebow is a probowler.

    I’m going out on a limb here………I think Aaron Rodgers made the team as well.

    Pay the man, Jerry!

    London Fletcher really deserves to make the Probowl this season.If he dont make it then they should take the privileges away from fans to vote for the Probowl and let experts vote people into the Probowl.

    And too see Lance Briggs make the Probowl also tells you something is wrong.

    Probably just there to carry Patrick Willis’ luggage..

    They should have taken the vote away from fans years ago.

    Oh god, not this nonsense again. They did pay him!

    He was a free agent just a few years ago, & the Bears were his best offer.

    Tulloch for Detroit has been a more of a impact player on his team then Briggs is for Chicago. Without Urlacher then Briggs may be garbage.

    It’s a good thing the voting was concluded before last Sunday night, there may have been some second thoughts.

    Fans are 1/3 the vote, The other 2/3, players and coaches, apparently dont think as highly of his play as you have.

    Bears GM Jerry Angelo can’t draft Pro Bowl Safeties or WRs, but SD & Pittsburgh took Eric Weddle & Mike Wallace with the Bears draft picks.

    Putz!

  20. mialto says: Dec 27, 2011 9:40 PM

    Bears have a few probowlers but time to draft the future ones…current front office might want to consider outsourcing lol might work.

    Tillman actually deserves it this year.

  22. waxthat says: Dec 27, 2011 10:51 PM

    Bowman should’ve made it over this clown. Pro Bowl is worthless. It’s kind of like a good ol boys club in how the selections are made. O wait, that’s the hall-of-fame.

    briggs= old

  24. jutts says: Dec 28, 2011 12:39 AM

    If being proud of being elected to the pro bowl is “Spilling the Beans”. Well, I guess he did.

  25. yevrag3535 says: Dec 28, 2011 2:31 AM

    Urlacher blows.
