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.

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

I like the idea of replacing the pro bowl with the Senior Bowl.

Even better idea: Making the worst team in the NFL play the Best team in college football (or the best seniors on one team like the Senior Bowl).

Even though that would never happen

Re: Redskins Pro Bowl Selections

They should bring back the old game where the NFL champ plays a preseason game against college all-stars, although this won't happen.

Richard Sherman, Andrew Luck among Pro Bowl snubs; Ed Reed, Matt Schaub undeserving - Yahoo! Sports

If he did cheat he deserves to be called a cheater, but I'm not in any position to honestly know whether or not they definitely cheated. I'm starting to think the NFL's drug policy might need to be revamped because of the unusual amount of players crying foul over Adderall. If a guy like Jordan Black got suspended not for a positive drug test, but over a paperwork issue regarding a prescription, and he's not the only one, then the NFL might need to revisit the issue and see if they can figure out a solution.
