Ronde Barber, Bucs cornerback

All season, he has been a Pro Bowl player. Sunday, he was even more so.

-- Roger Mills

Joe Jurevicius, Bucs receiver

With his heart still with his wife and newborn son, he made his only reception worth the trip.

-- Rick Stroud

Jon Gruden, Bucs coach

He completely outcoached Andy Reid. Not only that, he outcoached Tony Dungy.

-- Gary Shelton

Brad Johnson, Bucs quarterback

Michael Vick. Brett Favre. Jeff Garcia. They were picked ahead of Johnson for the Pro Bowl. So give them Hawaii. Brad will take San Diego.

-- John Romano
