2011 Pro Bowl: Buffalo Bills Have Zero Pro Bowlers

The NFL has released the official 2011 Pro Bowl rosters, and there are exactly zero Buffalo Bills on the list.

This, of course, isn't a terribly surprising development, as the Bills started the season 0-8 and are only 4-11 on the season. The process has always been a joke, and that remains true this evening - particularly when considering the fact that Kyle Williams didn't make the team.

The AFC's three interior defensive linemen are Haloti Ngata, Vince Wilfork and Richard Seymour. Ngata was a given; he's been a force this season with 62 tackles and six sacks. Seymour has also been statistically impressive, with five sacks of his own, and you'll be hard-pressed to find a better individual run defender than Wilfork has been over the years. Williams, however, has been a break-out star out of position at nose tackle in Buffalo's 3-4; he has more tackles than all NFL defensive linemen except for Cleveland's Ahtyba Rubin, and his 5.5 sacks rank up among the league's best interior linemen.

Williams was a Pro Bowl alternate in 2009. The Bills are one of just four teams that do not have a Pro Bowl representative, joining the Cincinnati Bengals, Seattle Seahawks and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
