Frank Gore added to Pro Bowl Roster

Good news: We don't have to root for the Vikings in any form or fashion now.  Rams RB Steven Jackson has decided to not play in the Pro Bowl this year because of his various nagging injuries.  49ers RB Frank Gore was the first alternate and will not be on the roster.  It's Gore's second Pro Bowl appearance, his first coming during his record-breaking 2006.  For the 49ers, the now four Pro Bowlers represents their most selections since the 2002 team had six players on the team.

The Pro Bowl doesn't get a lot of people jazzed up, but this selection is especially meaningful for the Miami native Gore.  The only time the 49ers have played in Miami during Gore's playing time he was injured.  This will be first chance to play in front of his hometown fans since his days at The U.  It's also an impressive selection given his injury issues early in the season.  It show just how much fans, coaches and players respect his performance this season.  Big congratulations are in order for Frank.

And on that note, go Saints!
