    SAN DIEGO – Quentin Jammer didn’t make the Pro Bowl again, perhaps something everyone should accept just isn’t going to happen.
    Jammer has accepted it. Sort of.
    “I still make comments to my wife like, ‘I got snubbed again,’ ” he said yesterday, a day after Pro Bowl voting was announced. “It’s a running joke around the house — ‘All right, today Daddy is going to be pretty (mad). The Pro Bowl team was announced.’ ”
    Jammer laughed long and loud before saying, “It doesn’t really make me mad, I know what I mean to this team, and that’s all that matters.”
    Indeed.
    For the first time in his eight seasons, Jammer was recognized in voting by his teammates as their Defensive Player of the Year. Actually, befitting a team that has relied on so many players, Jammer shared the honor with linebacker Shaun Phillips, whose big plays saved the team on many drives.
    “I think it means more that my teammates voted me in than some guy who doesn’t know diddly squat about football,” Jammer said.
    Jammer, who tied Antonio Cromartie for the team lead with three interceptions, has been targeted 78 times and allowed just 41 receptions this season. The 52.6 percent completion rate is ninth-best among AFC cornerbacks who were targeted as often as Jammer. But only two of the players ahead of Jammer allowed fewer yards on those receptions.
    The selection of the three cornerbacks voted onto the AFC Pro Bowl squad can’t be argued. The New York Jets’ Darrelle Revis has six interceptions and allowed just 39 receptions in 103 times targeted. Oakland’s Nnamdi Asomugha remains the most feared corner in the game, as he was targeted just 30 times all season (though he allowed 21 completions). Nine-time Pro Bowler Champ Bailey of Denver allowed just 43 receptions in 92 times targeted.
    “The guys who are in it definitely belong; they had great seasons,” Jammer said. “But what did I do that was so different from what they did?”

    Jammer just gets on with the job and gives 100% every game for the team. Hes one of the best DB's in the league imo.Im glad he will be around for the years to come.

    Jammer is one of the best out there and has always been a team first guy. I believe him when he say's it doesn't really bother him, a
    real stand up dude on the field and in life.

    As a safety. :icon_rofl:

    Seriously though, after LT, Jammer is the guy I will be most pleased to see get a ring. A guy that is totally undervalued everywhere but San Diego.

    Oh, I know. I'm laughing cos I thought it might stir up that ol hornets nest of guys who wanted him as a safety about 3 yrs ago and those who did not!!.

    Since then ofcourse Jammer has said it himself he knows the only way to prolong his career is to become a safety.
