Woodson, Collins make NFC Pro Bowl squad
The Packers aren't going to the playoffs next month, but defensive backs Charles Woodson and Nick Collins are headed for Hawaii.
Woodson and Collins were the only Green Bay players named to the NFC squad for the Pro Bowl. Other players could be added in the event of injury or other defections, but for now wide receivers Greg Jennings, cornerback Al Harris and defensive end Aaron Kampman -- all of whom were named alternates -- can make other vacation plans.
Woodson, who makes his fifth trip to the Pro Bowl, has five interceptions this year and is tied for the NFC lead along with Collins nad their teammate, Tramon Williams. Woodson, who moved to safety three weeks ago, returned two of the interceptions for touchdowns.
Collins has returned three interceptions for touchdowns.
Jennings ranks sixth in the NFL in receiving yards (1,153) but did not win the spots that went to Atlanta's Roddy White, Caorlina's Steve Smith, Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin.
Kampman, a Pro Bowl player the last two seasons, has 9 ½ sacks this season and ranks fifth among NFC defensive ends.
Of special note to Packers fans -- Jets quarterback Brett Favre was named to the AFC squad.

crazy. Favre leads the NFL in interceptions, declines to attend nearly every year, yet there is.
