Pro Bowl snubs,  If Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was in need of a little more motivation for next season, he got it Wednesday.

Sherman was the most obvious snub as the NFL announced the annual AFC and NFC Pro Bowl teams. While Sherman's positive test for a performance enhancing drug undoubtedly weighed on his failure to get selected by the three-pronged process of fan, player and coach balloting, there is one overriding issue when considering his case.

Sherman was better than everybody in the league at his position. And it wasn't close, according to some.

"I know we didn't vote for him and the only reason was the [PEDs]," a receivers coach from an NFC team said Wednesday evening. "I know he's appealing, but you don't want to send the wrong message.

Sherman enters the final game of the regular season with seven interceptions (tied for second in the league), three forced fumbles and one touchdown. The score came after a blocked field goal that he returned Sunday night in a lopsided win over San Francisco.
