The NFL released the Pro Bowl Rosters for the 2007 season, and the big surprise is the late Sean Taylor being named in the NFC. This is an honor he deserved and must bring a lot of joy to both his family and the Washington Redskins faithful. In the NFC, Brett Favre got the nod over Tony Romo and Matt Hasselbeck for the starting QB Position. In the AFC, Ben Roethlisberger made the AFC squad while, surprise, Tom Brady is the Starter at QB and Peyton Manning is the other reserve. At RB in the AFC, the undrafted Willie Parker was named to the Pro Bowl, solidifying his place as one of the top RB's in the NFL. Check out the whole list below.
