Seahawks shafted for 2013 Pro Bowl roster spots

 East Coast Bias The Pro Bowl rosters are out—and flawed. Even though the Seattle Seahawks are indisputably the NFL’s hottest team, and just torched the “best defense” in the league for 42 points, we have the same number of pro bowlers as…..the Kansas City Chiefs.
