  • Wow Matty- I did not know that......crazy if you think about that.

  • The most shocking thing from Sunday's Pro Bowl: Not one player from the national champion University of Florida Gators was there.

  • I wonder how many of these guys actually played in the "so-called" game yesterday..

  • And Altham, Orlando is a better option than Vegas IMO because early February temps are much warmer here (by 10-15 degrees on average), you're within 60 miles of both the Atlantic and the Gulf, and it would appeal more to the NFL players, coaches, and fans that have children.  Disney, Universal, Sea World, etc.

  • Most likely your right Goodfella, because most players don't care about the game.  It's an exhibition and a lot of the guys that go deep into the playoffs are physically beaten and don't want to expose their bodies to another game.  I still think the NFL needs to move this game to the contiguous United States for easier travel by fans.  Not everybody can afford a trip to Hawaii.  

  • I'd be willing to bet that 90% of these guys who people have said got "snubbed" will end up being named to & play in the Pro-Bowl anyways. happens every year....due to "fake injuries" & what not.............

  • Yup. It is a joke FLA Chad. I think Orlando would be a great place for the pro bowl. How about Vegas.....

  • The Pro Bowl is a huge joke, and the fact that it's in Hawaii is even more absurd.  A gathering of the best current NFL players and it never sells out.  Now let's get this bitch moved to Orlando.

  • IMO Vince Wilfork should have made the team. He is having a great year. Of course I am going to say Matt Cassel should have made it our favre.........

  • Very good call regarding Jacobs Joe..........but only about 50% of these guys will even go to the game.....its all about just being chosen to the team....considereing this game is AFTER the season....lol.....is there a bigger joke of a game in sports than the NFL pro-bowl game????

  • Good for Michael Turner who finally got his shot at starting and has been HUGE for the surprising Falcons.

  • I'm surprised that no one mentioned Brandon Jacobs for a spot on the team; I feel he is the most important player on the G's.

  • Stew- you are the absolute definition of a "fan", so you obviously see things through "Dallas Cowboy BLUE" tinted glasses.....Thanks for everyone who responded to my BLOG.

  • the thing about jackson to is how many of those tackles were impact tackles(for gains of less than 3yds)?  seems to me that alot of his tacles are downfield imo.

  • GF, Matt Ryan has had a hell of a year as a rookie but come on. I know for whatever reason you are a Romo hater and you would never think he belongs regardless of how well he plays and how good his stats are. Good blog though.
