Life continues to be good as a New Orleans Saints fan. Our team is 12-3 and heading to the playoffs for the third straight year. Our quarterback just broke the all-time single season passing yardage record.

And yesterday five players were named to the NFC Pro Bowl team. Not too shabby.

And all these players are on offense. They include starters Carl Nicks (Guard), Jahri Evans (Guard), Jimmy Graham (Tight End).

Also making the team is QB Drew Brees who will be the "back-up" to Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers and Tackle Jermon Bushrod.

Of course, as Saints fans, we don't want any of these players actually playing in the game as the two teams who make the Super Bowl don't send players to Hawaii because the Pro Bowl is the week before the big game.

Look for players like Roman Harper and perhaps Darren Sproles to sneak on to the team later on once injury replacements are inevitably named.
