The Denver Broncos have five players selected to the NFL Pro Bowl, but wide receiver Demaryius Thomas and linebacker Wesley Woodyard are not one of those five.  But their teammates say they should have been selected. Thomas (1,312 yards receiving) is a first alternate while Woodyard is the only player in the league with at least 100 tackles.  He has 113, 5.5 sacks and three interceptions and wasn't even named an alternate. "I was a little disappointed be- cause that's a goal for a player," Thomas said. "Everybody wants to make a Pro Bowl." If the Broncos advanced to the Super Bowl, none of the players would play in the Pro Bowl. "In my eyes, I thought he (Woodyard) was a Pro Bowler," said defensive end Elvis Dumervil, a three-time Pro Bowler. "I thought he had a tremendous year. ... I always believe good things happen to good people and he'll get his eventually." Peyton Manning, Champ Bailey, Von Miller, Elvis Dumervil and Ryan Clady have been selected to the 2013 Pro Bowl. Footnote: Trindon Holliday hasn't lost a game this season.  Holiday was released by the Houston Texans when they were 5-0, and the Broncos have gone 10-0 since he arrived Oct. 11.
