Pro Bowl Thoughts

First off, Janoris Jenkins got screwed.

Secondly, Jeff Saturday got benched by GB and is going.

Third, Doug Martin got more screwed than JJ21.

Ok, that's enough ranting on a game that is almost as important as the NBA ASG.

Re: Pro Bowl Thoughts

I like how KC has 5 pro bowlers. Pioli = best GM ever.

The Jeff Saturday vote shows how little us fans know about quality line play. Be honest. You'd probably have picked him too. I would've.

On the flip side, Okung and Unger are gonna be 5-time pro bowlers now. Yay.

IMO the #1 snub. Him and Charles Tillman are the only guys to shut down Megatron this year.

Re: Pro Bowl Thoughts

I don't watch a lot of Vikings games, but did Peterson get Shelton the Pro Bowl app tearance or did he actually create holes for Peterson?

Re: Pro Bowl Thoughts

There'll be forty other pro bowlers because forty of these guys will have the flu

Can not really recall the last time that I watched the game. It's more interesting to watch little kids play pickup games in the park IMO.

Jenkins doesn't deserve to be there yet.

18 Passes Defended and 4 return TD's is pretty good.

I'm with you man. Huge rams and jj fan myself but dude isn't good enough in coverage yet. His big plays were most certainly game changers but over large stretches of the season he was getting killed in man. Guy plays under the receiver and tries to guess the route rather then playing the receiver themselves hence him always getting killed over top and on double moves. It's part of the reason they had him lining up so far off wr's towards the later part of the year and why he was surrendering receptions per target attempts at like a 65% clip.

Closest we had to apro bowler this year was Greg the leg before he fizzled out.

Bright future ahead in stl or la or wherever they end up in the next few years.
