Antrel Rolle has never been one to keep his opinions to himself.  So it was no surprise that after the New York Giants strong safety was selected to join the NFL Pro Bowl team as an alternate, the outspoken Rolle vented his displeasure at not being voted to the team outright.Rolle, who picked off six passes and has a team-high 93 tackles this season, took to Twitter to express his frustration at the perceived snub.“Tell me which safety has better numbers and made more game changing plays than me this year???? I’ll wait!!!!” Rolle wrote. “This probowl sh-- is a joke.”Tell me which safety has better numbers and made more game changing plays than me this year???? I'll wait!!!! This probowl **** is a joke— Antrel Rolle (@antrelrolle26) December 28, 2013 Rolle was named a second alternate. He finished behind Kansas City's Eric Berry, Seattle's Kam Chancellor and Pittsburgh's Troy Polamalu.While some of these are deserving names, others seem to have made the list based strictly on name recognition. Rolle leads all safeties in interceptions and has one of the lowest opposing quarterback ratings, according to Pro Football Focus.Some Giants fans tweeted the comparisons.Who has the best stats? How did @antrelrolle26 not make the pro bowl but the other 3 did? @Giants @nfl pic.twitter.com/HpfGYkepQL— Matthew Intriago (@matthewintriago) December 28, 2013And guess what?  The numbers don't lie.
