Sure there were other Giants deserving of consideration for Pro Bowl honors, but RDE Osi Umenyiora was the only slam dunk on New York's roster.

As a result, he's the only Giant scheduled to head to Hawaii after the season. For Umenyiora, who has 12 sacks, it's his second trip to the Pro Bowl in the last three seasons.

The Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, Feb. 10 in Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.

The Giants also have five Pro Bowl alternates who will be eligible to play should a player in front of them withdraw from the game (except, of course, Jeremy Shockey, who is on injured reserve). Shockey and Plaxico Burress were voted first alternates, guard Chris Snee and defensive end Michael Strahan are second alternates and punter Jeff Feagles is a third alternate.
