I'm not normally one for wild speculation (I leave that to ProFootballTalk and PackerGeeks) but my first thought when finding out that Nick Barnett had not made the Pro Bowl was "All that mouthing off has cost him."
Think about Barnett after every big hit. After every tackle behind the line of scrimmage. You can always see him jawing with whoever he has just tackled, or whoever has just failed to block him. Talk, talk, talk. And that's before he does his silly Samurai thing. All that posturing no doubt hurt him in the player and coaching votes, and that's two thirds of the constituency. Barnett needs to let his play do the talking, especially now that he's not going to Hawaii.
