Packers Pro Bowl Snubs= Motivation

The Green Bay Packers had four players voted to the Pro Bowl, but some wonder whether a 12-and-2 team deserved a few more.

Dallas had 11 players named to pro football's all-star game, while seven from Minnesota were named despite the Vikings' 8-and-6 record.

Packers linebacker Nick Barnett felt like he and several other deserving teammates were snubbed, and they'll use that as motivation going into the playoffs.

Barnett says -- quote "there's a lack of respect out there for the players on this team. That's good for us, though, because I think we're a team that has a chip on our shoulder all the time."

Brett Favre, cornerback Al Harris, wide receiver Donald Driver and defensive end Aaron Kampman were voted to the Pro Bowl. Barnett and several others were selected as alternates and could go if players voted in as starters decide not to.

Pro Bowl rosters are selected by fans, players and coaches.
