Briggs Replaced by Matthews in Pro Bowl

Either Lance Briggs' knee injury is still lingering, or he just doesn't want to make the trip this year.  Clay Matthews has replaced Biggs on the Pro Bowl roster, marking the first time since 1978 that a rookie Packer has made the Pro Bowl.

Briggs was the lone Bears player to make the team (Knox is listed as an alternate) this year.

Miami just isn't as persuasive as Hawaii, so we'll see how many other players back out (or have injuries) between now and then.

What are your thoughts on the setup this year, with the Pro Bowl being played in Miami, and before the Super Bowl?
