Pro Bowl roster 2013: No Eagles named as replacements to annual all-star game

LeSean McCoy saw his 1,000 yard season streak and his Pro Bowl selection streak end in 2012.


Philadelphia's disappointing 4-12 season showed up in the Pro Bowl results as well.

The Eagles failed to land a player on the NFC's roster for the 2013 Pro Bowl game, which will be held at 7 p.m. Jan. 27 in Honolulu.

Running back LeSean McCoy was named to the 2011 team, as well as being named an All-Pro. But injuries shortened his 2012 season, and he finished with 800 yards rushing, his lowest since his rookie season in 2009.

The Eagles fell apart after winning their first two games, and the dismal season ended with the termination of long-time head coach Andy Reid. Injuries and inconsistent play at quarterback were the culprits as much as anything else was, and it led to the hiring of Chip Kelly.

His high-tempo offense may bring McCoy and other Eagles players back to the Pro Bowl in 2013. As for this year, they'll watch the NFC line up against their AFC counterparts as one of the teams not represented in the Pro Bowl.

The NFC quarterbacks are New Orleans' Drew Brees, New York's Eli Manning and Seattle's Russell Wilson. At running back, Minnesota's Adrian Peterson, Seattle's Marshawn Lynch and Tampa Bay's Doug Martin will represent the conference.

The wide receivers for the NFC are Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald, Atlanta's Julio Jones, New York's Victor Cruz and Tampa Bay's Vincent Jackson.

The offensive tackles will be Russell Okung (Seattle), Jermon Bushrod (New Orleans) and Matt Kalil, with offensive guards Jahri Evans (New Orleans), Chris Snee (New York) and Josh Sitton (Green Bay). The centers are Seattle's Max Unger and Green Bay's Jeff Saturday. The NFC's tight ends are Dallas's Jason Witten and Minnesota's Kyle Rudolph.

On the defensive side of the ball, the NFC is represented by a young interior defensive line. Tampa Bay's Gerald McCoy joins Detroit's Ndamukong Suh and Chicago's Henry Melton. The defensive ends are Minnesota's Jared Allen, New York's Jason Pierre-Paul and Chicago's Julius Peppers.

The outside linebackers are Minnesota's Chad Greenway, Washington's Ryan Kerrigan and Dallas's Anthony Spencer. The inside/middle linebackers are Washington's London Fletcher and Atlanta's Daryl Washington.

Chicago's pair of cornerbacks, Charles Tillman and Tim Jennings, will start for the NFC with Arizona's Patrick Peterson backing them up. The free safeties are Seattle's Earl Thomas and Atlanta's Thomas DeCoud. Atlanta's William Moore is at strong safety.

Thomas Morestead of New Orleans will be the NFC's punter, with Minnesota rookie Blair Walsh assuming kicking duties. Seattle's Leon Washington is the kick returner with Washington's Lorenzo Alexander the special teams player. Detroit's Don Muhlbach will be the long-snapper.
