Naufahu Tahi Misses Pro Bowl Cut As Eight Vikings Make It

After beginning the Pro Bowl voting as the leading vote-getter among NFC fullbacks, Minnesota Vikings Naufahu Tahi's Pro Bowl status has mirrored that of his team's play.

Slowly fading into nothingness.

Tahi, who has two rushing attempts for three yards, as well as nine receptions for 66 yards and a touchdowns, was beat out by Philadelphia Eagle Leonard Weaver.

Weaver, who was signed by the Eagles in the off-season, has 69 rushing attempts for 321 yards and two touchdowns...triple his career yards heading into the season. He also has 15 catches for 140 yards and two touchdowns.

The Vikings are sending eight players to the Pro Bowl: QB Brett Favre, RB Adrian Peterson, WR Sidney Rice, DE Jared Allen, DT Kevin Williams, G Steve Hutchinson, T Bryant McKinnie and ST Heath Farwell.

Perhaps a bigger shock other than Tahi not making the Pro Bowl is Vikings rookie Percy Harvin not making it.

Harvin made a strong case for being the NFC's kick returner, after fielding 43 kicks for 1156 yards and two touchdowns, the longest being 101 yards.

The returner slot is occupied by Eagles DeSean Jackson, who has returned 27 punts for 432 yards and two touchdowns, and is averaging a league-high 16 yards per return.

Jackson is also a starting wide reciever for the NFC.
