Buffalo Bills Have No 2012 Pro Bowl Participants

The NFL revealed its 2012 Pro Bowl rosters last night, and to the surprise of no one, the AFC roster does not contain any Buffalo Bills players.

Even when they were performing at their peak this season, the Bills only really had one lock for the game in Hawaii, and that opportunity was lost when running back Fred Jackson was lost for the season with a broken fibula.

After Week 10 (the Bills had just lost to the Dallas Cowboys to fall to 5-4), Jackson was the NFL's leading rusher with 917 yards. He'd also accumulated 1,309 total yards from scrimmage and six touchdowns in the team's first nine games, and that had made him the AFC's top-voted tailback in mid-November. He even ranked in the Top 10 in vote-getting in the entire league, trailing only Adrian Peterson at his position. Alas, the season-ending injury railroaded his chances at playing.

The only other Bills player I expected would come close was quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, and that's only because the AFC quarterback field has been so diluted by injuries this season. Who do you believe was snubbed by the voters, Bills fans?
