One interesting thing I just heard on ESPN is that RG3 is the first rookie qb since Dan Marino to make the original Pro Bowl roster. Take that Cam Newton!
At the same time, you can have more than one RB in the Pro Bowl, and I would think Alfred Morris would have made it over the likes of Frank Gore.

Most disappointed for Monty, most happy for Trent. Silverblunt has answered the critics with a solid season while playing through an injury. HTTR

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

The pro bowl is whack. I prefer to see who makes the all-pro team means more IMO.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

Ask any NFL player do they think the Pro-Bowl is whack. See what they tell you.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

The Pro Bowl is something that means more to the players than it should to the fans.

But as we are well aware the fans get their panties in a bunch over just about everything so...

Shame on you guys. Now get back to talking about Dallas.

I agree with this, I was just pointing out my belief that there is no way he should be starting over AD. There is certainly a case to be made for him taking Gore's spot.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

It's tough for a rookie to be honored, Morris will get in next year if he keeps this up. I think it speaks volumes that RG3 made it in as a rook.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

I agree. It's no knock at all on Alfred Morris that he got beat out by three of the most prolific backs in the entire league. Of course AP was a lock, so he was really competing with The Beast and Gore.

I'd like to see him put up big numbers against Dallas.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

And if it's so whack why do teams and players get so outraged when a player they feel is deserving is overlooked?

If nothing else, it's a good way for players to approximate where they stand in relationship to their peers.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

London Fletcher takes it very personal

But there are a lot of players who treat the whole process as kind of a throwaway part of the season.

"Hey guys, remember you have to submit your Pro Bowl votes today"

'Oh shit, forgot about that. Hey who's that RB for the Niners?"

"Gore?"

"Yeah, yeah. He's probably having a good season right? Niners are winning"

"Yeah. He's doing alright"

"Ok, I'll put him down"

That is literally how it often goes down.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

I agree the process is a little "whack". Maybe could use some tweaking or just scrap the whole thing. I really don't care. I just find it weird how some people go out of their way to put the Pro-Bowl down when their player gets snubbed, yet rejoice when they make it. Can't have it both ways.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

Why don't they just do it like they do the Hall of Fame, have a nominating committee that bases the Pro Bowl nominees based solely on individual stats? No need to vote.

And then, to make the Pro Bowl more interesting and competitive, have the winning conference of the game get extra draft picks or extra compensation for free agency for the next season for that conference's teams. Something to make the actual game worth the effort. And move the stupid game back to after the Super Bowl.

Actually I'l go even further and say compensation for the teams on the winning side that were represented in the game. Even more incentive for players to do their best during the season.
