James Laurinaitis of the St. Louis Rams...do not let this man be left off the 2011 Pro Bowl roster after an amazing sophomore season.

The pains of being a small market team, a small market team that hasn't won very much lately. Polls closed this week for the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl, and not surprisingly, there were no players from the St. Louis Rams on the list of top vote getters. Democracy doesn't work, when will people learn!

Rookie QB Sam Bradford was the second leading rookie vote getter, behind the Lions' Ndamnukong Suh. Bradford received 305, 721 votes to Suh's 405,597. Taking nothing away from Suh's amazing rookie season, but people, Bradford's the third rookie QB to pass for more than 3,000 yards...and how many wins do the Rams have versus the Lions? 

The horror. The horror. 

There's still some hope left for the Rams players. The NFL will announce the complete 2011 Pro Bowl rosters on December 28. Stay tuned to TST that day for some trumped out outrage.
