Incognito makes it to his first career Pro Bowl

Incognito AP

When the AFC and NFC representatives arrive in Hawaii, one of the guys they regard as one of the dirtiest players in the game will come rolling in to the pristine pool party, hopefully with his clothes in a green garbage bag, a stream of profanity, and a cloud of grimy dust.

Richie Incognito is going to the Pro Bowl, for the first time in his eight-year career.

Despite his reputation, he wouldn’t have been in position to replace Ravens guard Marshal Yanda if the players and coaches didn’t regard Richie as worthy.  Indeed, a cloud of suspicion regarding the then-pending suspension of Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman prompted enough players and coaches to keep him out of the game.

Incognito, despite persistent complaints made against him of dirty play, secured the votes.  Here’s hoping he brings some of his fire and intensity to the land of volcanoes; if it’s contagious, it could help save the Pro Bowl.

    I remember him from the espn the magazine story where he had to attend anger management sessions, I think it was around the sametime Kyle Turley fought the whole Jets defense and threw the helmet into the crowd.

    If I was a QB I wouldn’t mind having either blocking for me

    This might the first time we see a personal foul penalty in the Pro Bowl in a long time

    Least amount of penalties this year than any other afc offensive lineman. Philbin cleaned up Richie’s act

    That guy is this generation’s Conrad Dobler, who for years lined up next to Hall of Famer Dan Dierdorf with the Cardinals (I was going to say Arizona, St. Louis, Phoenix, but I think it was St. Louis lol). He plays to win his battle by any means.

    Andy Levitre of the Bills should be going – I love Incognito but he has some games where he is a turnstile in pass protection.
