Tebow doesn’t make the Pro Bowl cut

Broncos' Tebow is dejected against the Bills in Orchard Park Reuters

The Pro Bowl rosters are out, and the first thing many fans will check is whether the AFC team includes Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow.

It doesn’t.  The AFC quarterbacks are Tom Brady, Ben Roethlisberger, and Philip Rivers.

Tebow finished third in the fan voting, which counts for one third of the total vote.  Voting by coaches and players provides the other 66.6 percent of the process.

The bigger question is whether Tebow is fourth, fifth, or sixth.  Brady surely won’t play in the Pro Bowl, and Roethlisberger easily could point to one of several actual, embellished, or imagined injuries.  The quarterback from the Super Bowl representative also won’t be attending.  Thus, Tebow ultimately could be invited.

Brady is the AFC starting quarterback.  The rest of the starting lineup of offense includes Ravens running back Ray Rice, Ravens fullback Vonta Leach, Patriots receiver Wes Welker, Steelers receiver Mike Wallace, Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, Browns tackle Joe Thomas, Dolphins tackle Jake Long, Patriots guard Logan Mankins, Patriots guard Brian Waters, and Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.

The starting AFC defense has Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney, Patriots defensive end Andre Carter, Ravens defensive tackle Haloti Ngata, Patriots defensive tackle Vince Wilfork, Ravens outside linebacker Terrell Suggs, Broncos outside linebacker Von Miller, Ravens middle linebacker Ray Lewis, Jets cornerback Darrelle Revis, Broncos cornerback Champ Bailey, Ravens safety Ed Reed, and Steelers safety Troy Polamalu.

The specialists are Raiders kicker Sebastian Janikowski, Raiders punter Shane Lechler, Steelers kick returner Antonio Brown, and Patriots special-teamer Matthew Slater.

The backups, other than Roethlisberger and Rivers, are Jaguars running back Maurice Jones-Drew, Texans running back Arian Foster, Bengals receiver A.J. Green, Dolphins receiver Brandon Marshall, Chargers tight end Antonio Gates, Jets tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson, Ravens guard Marshal Yanda, Jets center Nick Mangold, Broncos defensive end Elvis Dumervil, Raiders defensive lineman Richard Seymour, Chiefs linebacker Tamba Hali, Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson, Texans cornerback Johnathan Joseph, and Chargers safety Eric Weddle.

    This isn’t even news. He didn’t play in 5 games. Even if he had good numbers, which he doesn’t, you HAVE to leave him out. Most fans voting for him only had 7 games to account for, which is ridiculous.

    Pro Bowl is a joke of a popularity contest.

  2. tayloner says: Dec 27, 2011 7:17 PM

    Philip Rivers?!? You may actually be able to convince me that Tebow deserves the spot over him. Matt Schaub people, 10 games is enough to get Pro Bowl consideration.

  3. lilrob10201 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:18 PM

    Phillip Rivers made the Probowl ?He had a bad season but I would take him over Tebow any day.

  4. aec4 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:20 PM

    Pouncey over mangold seriously? Rivers over tj Yates? Seriously?

  5. danielapackardpc says: Dec 27, 2011 7:20 PM

    Forget Tebow. The fact that Matthew Stafford didn’t make the Pro Bowl makes the Lions’ streak of not having a Pro Bowl quarterback since 1971 officially b.s. and meaningless. What a joke the Pro Bowl is.

  6. binarybulge says: Dec 27, 2011 7:21 PM

    @tayloner: Agree. Third QB position in both conferences looks a bit odd. Eli over Stafford? Alrighty then. Hell, I voted Dalton ahead of Rivers.

  7. trbowman says: Dec 27, 2011 7:21 PM

    Did Fred Jackson make it?

    If not, he got robbed.

  8. ballsooharduniversity says: Dec 27, 2011 7:22 PM

    was anyone actually suprised that he did not make it? There are numerous QB’s that are considered playing bad but have terrific years compared to Tebow. sick of all of the media hype he is getting

  9. waldoampere says: Dec 27, 2011 7:22 PM

    No way Rivers belongs there this year. Of course, neither does Tebow.

  10. acdc363 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:22 PM

    Yup first thing I did was check if tebow was on there how did you know!!

  11. edgarh21 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:23 PM

    How is it that the leading interceptions thrower in the league makes the pro bowl and Andy Dalton doesn’t. SHaking My Damn Head!!!

  12. cakemixa says: Dec 27, 2011 7:23 PM

    Will any other players NOT making the Pro Bowl get their own story?

  13. accordngs says: Dec 27, 2011 7:23 PM

    Denver radio station is reporting Tebow is #1 Alternate…so yea, you will be seeing him there. AFC QB play was a bit of a joke outside of the top 2.

  14. trbowman says: Dec 27, 2011 7:24 PM

    Jackson deserved it based on his play the first 11 weeks alone. Not his fault he got hurt.

    Brandon Browner and Kam Chancellor getting some much deserved love. Richard Sherman?

  15. ilovefootball25 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:24 PM

    Rivers made it??? Are you kidding me??? I’d pick Tebow or Dalton over Rivers. I hope someone drops out and Tebow gets his spot…unless Denver is in the Super Bowl..in which case no one from Denver will play in the Pro Bowl. It’s a bad idea anyway to have the Pro Bowl the week before the Super Bowl.

  16. geniusfan says: Dec 27, 2011 7:25 PM

    How is Gates in over Aaron Hernandez? Gates was a great player but he’s really beat up and he is not the tight end that Aaron Hernandez is at this time.

  17. rpping says: Dec 27, 2011 7:26 PM

    Vonta Leach was much more deserving of the fullback spot. Tebow might have a better shot next year.

  18. gosuhgo says: Dec 27, 2011 7:28 PM

    WOW no Matt Stafford? Lions got snubbed.

  19. binarybulge says: Dec 27, 2011 7:29 PM

    @rpping: Maybe Tebow should’ve gotten the fullback spot. By the way, the fullback spot shouldn’t even exist.

  20. raiderrob21 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:31 PM

    And he shouldnt be in the Pro Bowl. I agree the Pro Bowl is a joke! They keep track of how many pro bowls a player has in his career but fail to mention he made it after 3-6 players ahead of him either passed on the opportunity, were hurt, chose not to go, etc. A guy who is listed as an 8 time pro bowler may really only been elected 2 times the other 6 are a joke!

  21. noquickreactionshere says: Dec 27, 2011 7:31 PM

    Very happy to see Marshal Yanda get some much deserved respect. That guy is a monster of a guard and so often guards go un-noticed.

  22. guvsta says: Dec 27, 2011 7:33 PM

    I’m a Dolphins fan and no way does Jake Long get in this year. If it’s based on heart then he’s an all-pro but this has not been a good year for him- too banged up to play to his best. Once you’re in on the OL you stay there, that’s the problem.

  23. vincentbojackson says: Dec 27, 2011 7:33 PM

    Bengal’s cornerback Jonathan Joseph?

    Might want to review the pre-season free agent movement.

  24. eddddddd says: Dec 27, 2011 7:33 PM

    Ray Lewis? Really? What a joke.

  25. nflwatcher says: Dec 27, 2011 7:34 PM

    NFL network said Bengals Andy Dalton is 1st alternate not Tebow.

  26. bwisnasky says: Dec 27, 2011 7:34 PM

    NFL Network just said that Dalton is the first alternate, not Teblow…

  27. trbowman says: Dec 27, 2011 7:34 PM

    Michael Roos got snubbed.

  28. accordngs says: Dec 27, 2011 7:35 PM

    Okay…. Radio station in Denver has now changed it and confirmed…

    Tebow is 2ND Team Alternate, not first.

  29. vincentbojackson says: Dec 27, 2011 7:36 PM

    Steelers have NFL’s top ranked defense and only one defensive representative?

    And the league wonders why nobody watches the game or takes it seriously.

  30. crj202 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:36 PM

    London Fletcher gets snubbed again….Leading the league in tackles and Brian Urlacher (Just a name at this point, especially after Aaron Rodgers broke his ankles on Saturday) gets the nod.

    Pro Bowl is a JOKE!!!

  31. nyyjetsknicks says: Dec 27, 2011 7:37 PM

    Mangold is the best center is the league. There is no debate. He should not be a back up.

  32. rmm9090 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:39 PM

    What Pro Bowl? Another one of GODdells affronts to the ruining the NFL.

    It’s a plain damn shame that pro players deserving of the accolades of playing in the “players game” are denied the opportunity because GODdell and his pack of team owners try to make an extra buck by moving what once was the Pro Bowl to the weekend before the Superbowl.

    For me, the Pro Bowl stopped its existence when it was moved forward to a point where guys deserving cannot go and play and be admired by their fans and peers.

  33. drumzan says: Dec 27, 2011 7:41 PM

    Where’s Curtis Painter? Rigged!

  34. dafranchise03 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:42 PM

    Johnathan Joseph is on the Texans. The team that is ranked in top 5 in defense.

  35. maxl49 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:43 PM

    Tebow will split the Pacific ocean and still get to Hawaii !

  36. wannabeqb says: Dec 27, 2011 7:44 PM

    The Pro Bowl has become a joke.

  37. scoops1 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:45 PM

    Skip Bayless is Flabbergasted

  38. ilovefootball25 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:45 PM

    Tebow is the 2nd alternate. He’ll probably play. I see Brady or Rothliesberger either deciding not to play due to a “lingering injury” or one of them being in the Super Bowl and dropping out because of that.

  39. mac3333 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:46 PM

    Geno Atkins got robbed.

    Best DT in the AFC this year. Others got in on name recognition, not on the body of this year’s work.

  40. rdrs68 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:46 PM

    Amen there is a god after all.

  41. adenaguy says: Dec 27, 2011 7:49 PM

    Hey guys, I live in Cincinnati and there’s no cornerback named Jonathan Joseph playing here. Last year maybe but not this year. Might need to check your cheet sheet.

  42. samoanjungle says: Dec 27, 2011 7:51 PM

    Yes, Andy Dalton is actually the first alternate which is a big story but you just can’t seem to have a story without Tebow in huh?
    A Rookie second round pick, taken after what, 4 others? Throwing to a rookie WR, a new OC, no offseason and he will likely play in the pro bowl. But we gotta talk about Tebow anyway.

  43. blackandtealforeal says: Dec 27, 2011 7:57 PM

    The pro bowl is a joke. It’s nothing but a popularity contest where old players who were one time good ride their own coat tails of reputation where they should let someone else start. Ala Ray Lewis, Troy Polomalu, Dwight Freeny.
    There’s barely a player from a loosing team on this roster. So there’s hardly any good players on bad teams. That is so wrong. Popularity contest for sure.

  44. flavadave10 says: Dec 27, 2011 7:58 PM

    @drumzan

    Don’t forget about Rex Grossman.

  45. carlsbadboltfan says: Dec 27, 2011 8:06 PM

    The Pro Bowl is the only game where it’s more of an honor to be voted to it, than it is to actually PLAY in it.

    One snub: Antwan Barnes of the Chargers: 11 sacks and he isn’t even a starter.

  46. darthhitman77 says: Dec 27, 2011 8:20 PM

    You’re missing Cruz and Stafford getting snubbed but you’re reporting a non story like Tebow missing the cut? REALLY???? My G o d, it’s amazing you aren’t sweeping floors for a living

  47. granadafan says: Dec 27, 2011 8:25 PM

    The only ones voting for Tebow were Skip Bayless, Denver fans, extremist conservatives, and religious fundamentalists.

    Even my church pastor was encouraging our congregation to go out and vote for Tebow. Absolutely ridiculous. .

  48. whodeytn says: Dec 27, 2011 8:30 PM

    Geno Atkins and Reggie Nelson got SNUBBED.

    Bigtime.

  49. papacrick says: Dec 27, 2011 8:35 PM

    Stafford got robbed on the NFC ballot.. Eli Manning are you kidding me?!? Stafford has better numbers across the board and his team has a better record. I lost all respect for this pro bowl selection process.

  50. duanethomas says: Dec 27, 2011 8:39 PM

    He should be starti ng the game, can you imagine the rating. ESPN would devote 24 hours of programming to him. Tebowmania took the country by storm, no since the Beatles came across the pond. He is a legend and he is living, he is going to win multiples MVP’s and Super Bowls. He is the most interesting man alive. Tebow. Say it again. Tebow. If you’re stupid, perverted and unamerican thumbs down. Love Jesus and Tebow thumbs Up!

  51. steelerchicken says: Dec 27, 2011 8:44 PM

    A fullback might withdraw from the game

  52. mrplow3 says: Dec 27, 2011 8:44 PM

    Rivers made it!?

    Wow, atleast Tebow has a winning record, Rivers just all around is having a horrific year. What a joke.

  53. arpym says: Dec 27, 2011 8:57 PM

    The thing to remember is, even if he ends up playing in the Pro Bowl, he was not voted to the Pro Bowl.
    He was on a TEAM (mostly defence) that won a handful in a row, that does NOT make him a good QB.

  54. rogerbrad says: Dec 27, 2011 8:57 PM

    Hey duanethomas

    ——————————

    Love Jesus and Tebow shouldn’t have been in the same sentence.

  55. squared80 says: Dec 27, 2011 8:58 PM

    Players who are great at their position make the Pro Bowl. Not people who happen to be on winning teams, like Tim Tebow. Guy doesn’t deserve to be there – he’s been awful.

  56. packerbacker12 says: Dec 27, 2011 8:58 PM

    “Rivers over tj Yates?”

    Are you serious? If Tim Tebow couldn’t get in, what makes you think TJ Yates had a better chance?

  57. packerbacker12 says: Dec 27, 2011 9:04 PM

    There are certainly more deserving players than Ray Lewis and Dwight Freeney. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of Ray Lewis but it is pretty obvious that he didn’t have that great of season. Same goes with Freeney.

  58. 46defense says: Dec 27, 2011 9:10 PM

    Wait a second… I thought Tebow was a winner… Weird

  59. Andre's Johnson says: Dec 27, 2011 9:15 PM

    Rivers made the team because of the 2/3 player and coach vote weighting. If you were a player or coach in the AFC, would you want Tebow at the game, being the media magnet all week, annoying the hell out of you? No way. In fact, every tight end and WR in the AFC voted Tebow as low as possible, probably, on account of what the hell is the point of going to the pro bowl if you aren’t going to catch any damn passes?

  60. cmich2006 says: Dec 27, 2011 9:17 PM

    1) Missing 25% of the season
    2) Hopping on the pile to get credit for a half tackle
    3) Doing a dance before a game
    4) Somehow making the Pro Bowl–Priceless

  61. rajbais says: Dec 27, 2011 9:18 PM

    Thank God!!!

  62. stanklepoot says: Dec 27, 2011 9:28 PM

    For those of you complaining about players not getting voted to go to the pro bowl because they’re injured, remember that the pro bowl is played before the SB now. If a player has an injury that won’t allow them to play before then, they shouldn’t be voted in. We have too many people backing out of the pro-bowl already as it is.

  63. cup1981 says: Dec 27, 2011 9:33 PM

    Last time I checked, a sub-50% passer is not going to make the pro bowl. Hell, even back in the 1960s that would have been sub-par.

    The Pro Bowl is a joke and it would have lost the smudge of credibility it actually still has, had Teblow and his 48% completion percentage had made it. Brady and the Pats will be knocked out after one game, so he will play in the PB. Roethlisberger likely won’t play, due to injuries, regardless of if the Steelers make the SB or not. Looks like Dalton will likely be the third PB QB, and well deserved. He is going to be a great QB for years to come.

    Maybe the Bungles will pull out of the death spiral they have been in lol.

  64. steelerrc says: Dec 27, 2011 9:34 PM

    Good! ButI would have Dalton over Rivers!

  65. nuclearwarfare says: Dec 27, 2011 9:38 PM

    Everyone is busy talking about Rivers and Tebow. Not a single person mentioned Janikowski making it to his first Pro Bowl.

    That, to me, is probably more important than little Timmy not making it to the Pro Bowl because he can’t throw the football.

  66. raiderapologist says: Dec 27, 2011 9:44 PM

    The pro bowl is a joke, but it’s nice to see Janikowski finally get noticed. The guy kicked half the season with a drunk coed tied to his plant leg, and still did a hell of a job.

  67. stevemo says: Dec 27, 2011 9:44 PM

    For such a “joke”, this certainly is making people quite angry.

  68. comeonnowguys says: Dec 27, 2011 9:58 PM

    Phillip Rivers bad year is still 4000+, 20+ TDs.

    Translation: Rivers bad year is still better than Tebow’s.

    Doesn’t matter. Fan votes count, and Tebow’s base is that same group that kept Palin Jr. dancing way, way longer than she should have.

  69. acieu says: Dec 27, 2011 9:58 PM

    Does this mean the second coming isn’t going to happen at the Pro Bowl?

  70. whatswiththehate says: Dec 27, 2011 10:27 PM

    So some QBs make it to the pro-bowl based on popularity, past experience, and notalgia, and not on what they are doing now and other have to make it on their current accompishments.

    It’s now clear to see which division should be taken more seriously when you have folks on the NFC side fighting over the third QB choosen and the two alternates and who should have been over whom. Especially when the argument is based on current personal accomplishments, talent, and hard work. While folks on the AFC side are arguing over a QB who can barely throw a football.

    The NFC is clearly the more difficult side of the NFL.

  71. savagenation2011 says: Dec 27, 2011 11:31 PM

    Face it pathetic Tebow haters. He is a winner and u are losers since all ur criticism stems from hate of God and yourself. Why? Because facing the truth is devastating. And despite your hate the truth u can’t escape in the end

  73. randomguy9999 says: Dec 28, 2011 12:15 AM

  77. metalhead65 says: Dec 28, 2011 12:51 AM

    ok so let’s get this straight. when the broncos win Tebow has nothing to do with it and it is the defense and everybody but him right? but if they lose it is all because of him?yeah no bias against him at all. you same people who pick apart his game will somehow ignore any decline in production and fall off in play next year by newton right? he and other media favorites will have the sophmore slump excuse and it’s only his second year should that happen right? just like the qb for the bucs,what was his name again? you know the one who was destined to be one of the all time greats untill he flopped miserably along with his team. don’t see to many articles blasting him for the bucs failures do you? yet if tebos does anything wrong it is front page news and he sucks. let the guy alone and give him the same slack other young qb’s get their first 3 years. before you write him off as a bust. the facts are the broncos sucked with same defense and surrounding players untill he took over.try as hard as you want you can’t argue that fact. he hits a rough spot and most people expected it and he sucks .just amazing that because he is a nice guy and not a fake he gets crucified for it.

  78. hammertoe11 says: Dec 28, 2011 12:53 AM

    Pat Robertson and Republican candidates is going to wake up mad in the morning because Tebow didn’t make in the Pro Bowl game. Watch out the bible thumpers is going to come out of the closet on this one.

    but that is not the reason i am posting now. Poor ike taylor, the best corner in the league not named revis. he got jobbed

    There are certainly more deserving players than Ray Lewis and Dwight Freeney. Don’t get me wrong, I am a big fan of Ray Lewis but it is pretty obvious that he didn’t have that great of season. Same goes with Freeney.

    ——————————————-

    I had the exact same thoughts. Lewis was borderline at best, and that’s sort of stretching it.

    Freeney? Down right ridiculous! He has eight sacks (or about one every other game) and 18, that’s right 18 total tackles (or about one per game). It’s not like he’s forcing fumbles, picking off or defending passes or producing big in some other area either. This is an all-time laugher!

  88. rrrrllllbbbb says: Dec 28, 2011 5:09 AM

    Tebow deserves to go to the Pro Bowl. I think not. 7-games is not a sufficient amount to even consider him worthy of this “who cares” bowl.

  89. jimothyvonstojavic says: Dec 28, 2011 5:18 AM

    Tebow wins but there is no way in the world he should make the pro bowl.
    I’m a charger fan but rivers in the pro bowl this year is a crime towards Andy dalton.

  90. pattunya says: Dec 28, 2011 6:31 AM

    Glad to hear Tebow didn’t make the pro bowl, he doesn’t belong there, He sucks as a quarterback, Denver is very lucky to make playoffs with him as QB. Tebow time is over, couldn’t be happier.

    I’ve seen Tebow play twice this year, and in both games he looked pretty bad. Definitely no better than a bottom-third QB for the league. I really don’t understand what all the hype and press coverage is about this guy? I suspect that he won’t even be in the league in another 5 years.

    Face it pathetic Tebow haters. He is a winner and u are losers since all ur criticism stems from hate of God and yourself. Why? Because facing the truth is devastating. And despite your hate the truth u can’t escape in the end

    If the Ravens make it to the SB the AFC won’t even be able to field a team. This game is a relic and should be retired. Every year it is chock full of guys who are washed up, and missing players who should have been selected. I’m a Ravens fan but Ed Reed and Ray Lewis should not be going this year. Reed looks like a matador now and won’t tackle anyone, and both guys are trailing plays at an alarming rate.

    I really like Tim Tebow and he’s done some amazing things this year. Maybe his future holds a handful of Pro Bowl invitatins, but he really shouldn’t be there this year.

    I would have thought maybe Andy Dalton over Rivers, simply based on all of the INTs by PR this year.

    I guess it goes to show how there still aren’t that many elite QBs in this league.

    What hate? He isn’t an accomplished QB, PERIOD. This is the craft of QB, reading defenses, making throws completing throws with accuracy, and beating people – he isnt a pro bowl QB, and if your screen name is based on that putrid waste of space, Michael Savage, hence “savage nation” – you wont “escape in the end”, either.

    Has nothing to do with the hate of God and yourselves. He is a winner, he just didn’t make the Pro Bowl.

  99. gmen1987 says: Dec 28, 2011 8:10 AM

    Tebow will make it to the Pro Bowl when the QBs ahead of him drop out due to hang nails or getting popped in the head from a champagne cork on New Year’s Day.

  102. sj39 says: Dec 28, 2011 8:24 AM

    I can’t believe a clown like Brady made it over a qreat QB like Tebow.

  103. nbcwantsitsmoneyback says: Dec 28, 2011 8:26 AM

    Tebow is ranked 13th out of the 16 AFC QB’s He has completed 48% of his passes for 1,669 yds.

    Those are Jamarcus Russell numbers not pro bowl numbers.

    And this guy is the 2nd alternate?? He should have been the 10th alternate..!

  104. ziggy26 says: Dec 28, 2011 8:29 AM

    Mangold is excellent, but it’s hard to argue for the center of the NFL’s 22nd-ranked rush offense, which is averaging just 3.8 ypc. It doesn’t help that the Jets pass offense is 21st, with a pathetic 6.4 yards per attempt.

    “Brady surely won’t play in the Pro Bowl, and Roethlisberger easily could point to one of several actual, embellished, or imagined injuries.”

    You sure made it clear why Ben won’t play, so tell us why Brady “surely won’t play”? Will he also “point to one of several actual, embellished, or imagined injuries”? Why do you suggest that Ben will do that but Brady “surely won’t play” for some unstated reasons? A little one-sided, aincha?

    Here is a secret. Ben won’t be playing because he will be in the Super Bowl. Hope I clarified that.

    GO STEELERS!!

  107. imoutfishing says: Dec 28, 2011 8:45 AM

    So is anyone really wondering why a quarterback that is ranked outside of the top 10 in every statistical category for quarterbacks didn’t make the pro bowl. Pretty simple, he isn’t good enough. If he does make it as an alternate it would be a slap in the face to the other quarterbacks who had better seasons. Just goes to show how the media continues to try to shape the opinion of readers and “make news” instead of reporting the facts. Tebow is one of the worst QB’s in the league and is finishing one of the worst statistical season for QB’s. the only reason the Bronco’s are in playoff contention is the division they are in which once again begs the question should the NFL just take the top 6 teams in each conference regardless of division and rank them. Would be interested to actually have the best teams in the playoffs instead of teams that slid in due to the fact they ended up first in a horrible division.

    Tebow shouldn’t have thrown 4 pics against the Bills.

  110. omniusprime says: Dec 28, 2011 8:50 AM

    Only a fool would think Teblow deserves to be a Pro Bowler. If Teblow ever wants to become a Pro Bowler he’d better stop wasting so much time praying to his false god and invest more time on the practice field practicing. Teblow is a pathetic excuse for a quarterback, he has to use the sissy formation every snap. If he wants to become a real quarterback he needs to learn how to pass correctly and accurately.

  111. rmm1984 says: Dec 28, 2011 8:56 AM

    I get why people don’t like Roethlisberger; I’m a Steelers fan and even I think he’s a d-bag. But to say his injuries are embellished or made up is ridiculous. He played one of the worst games of his career and missed another game. Is he doing that to make his injury look worse? I wonder if anyone thinks before they type.

  112. wutliss07 says: Dec 28, 2011 9:05 AM

    umm.. anyone happen to watch this guy play against the Bills – some of the worst passes ive seen attempted in any level of football – Pro Bowl?? C’mon man…

    Not sure why Tom Brady was picked, again. Because he’ll make up some sort of excuse, again, and not show up…. again.

  119. huejackson says: Dec 28, 2011 1:25 PM

    Shane Lechler is the best punter in History of the NFL.
    Raiders get snubbed yet again but atleast SeaBass got in, the guy is the best Field Goal kicker in History as well.
    These Raiders should of got in
    Micheal Bush
    Heyward Bey
    Deneris Moore
    Carson Palmer
    Stanford Routte
    I can understand DMC not getting in since he has been hurt half the year but I still think what he did in the games he was in was more than what guys did for the whole year..
    The NFL hates the Raiders… Ever since Al Davis sued the NFL then the Raiders started to be the most penalized team in the NFL..COINCIDENCE??
    Raiders have different coaches, different players, but still the most every year? I watched every game this year and 80% of Raider penalty’s are pure B.S

  120. stopthehate15bowdown says: Dec 28, 2011 3:28 PM

    On to more serious topics…. I might be the biggest Tebow defender on this site, but even I don’t think he is a pro-bowler. Tebow is clutch player, a fantastic athlete, but obviously not a clutch passer… yet. He’s a work in progress and works in progress shouldn’t go to the pro-bowl (neither should cam newton or red dalton). But know this…. he is getting better. If you compare even the Bills game versus how poorly he looked in his first start against Miami he’s %100 better. And to all the haters out there, its only going to get worse for you. Tebow is going to be the starter for 16 games next year, the hype is going to get even bigger because he’s going to get better and if he gets some receivers that don’t drop 3rd down passes and a defensive line that can stop busts like C.J. Spiller, he’s going to win even more games.
    P.S. He’s also going to the playoffs and and will probably slip into the pro-bowl so PUT YOUR STRAIGHT-JACKETS ON on get read for MORE TEBOWWWW!!!!!

  121. mornelithe says: Dec 28, 2011 3:32 PM

    Ultimately, who cares who gets selected for the Pro Bowl? Is anyone actually in contention going to be present? Highly, highly unlikely.

    The Pro Bowl is a great idea, that takes place at possibly the worst time in the season. Only way it could be worse, is if right after the game ends, Super Bowl kickoff starts.

  122. coneyisland75 says: Dec 30, 2011 5:12 PM

    Tebow doesn’t throw interceptions. Those are Jesus lasers meant to destroy the “Sinner” defensive backs who catch them.

  123. bodeee1975 says: Dec 31, 2011 2:06 AM

    Sorry folks or Tebow heads or whoever ya are….This guy had a nice little run , a lot of luck came into play on half his wins, but thats football….Im not gonna sit and bash the guy, I personally watch him make some of his throws and wanna puke, but thats my opinion, just like I hate all the God and Jesus talk being brought up in sports…I just dont think there is some ruling being out there and he/she is worried about sporting events…That being said the guy brought some excitement to a team that desperately needed it and i do applaud that……But lets get real here, this guy is undoubtedly gonna end up in Hawaii playing in the pro bowl after half the guys pull out and frankly it doesnt sit right, he is not a pro bowl QB PERIOD, not yet anyways

  124. ravensfan996 says: Dec 31, 2011 11:55 AM

    Another popularity contest! Reed doesn’t deserve to be there, he ain’t do much this season, so the fact that he made it over the Safety from Buffalo Byrd, is a joke. The fact that L. Fletcher, who led the league in tackles, didn’t. The Pro Bowl is a joke, and until they start getting it right, I will never care.

  125. strangebro says: Jan 2, 2012 9:31 PM

    From a Chargers fan:

    Philip Rivers had a down year, but still threw for 4600 yards with 27 TDs. Third QB sounds about right for him.

    Antonio Gates is losing his mojo– he’s old and has been battling foot injuries for a few seasons now. May actually skip the game; probably deserved to be an alternate.

    Eric Weddle earned that slot; posted career highs in multiple categories, most notably INTs. Needs to strip the ball more to be considered elite. Did better than Reed this season, but not as well as Jairus Byrd in Buffalo.

    We didn’t have any major snubs in San Diego, although the person who mentioned Antwan Barnes was pretty close. 11 sacks coming off the bench… damn. Nick Novak did a darn good job filling in for Nate Kaeding, but Janikowski had a far-superior year.

    And as long as we’re discussing Tebow– he sucks! Maybe he could make the game as an H-back.
