Evan Mathis makes it to the Pro Bowl

As Hawaii week approaches, plenty of players will be bailing on the Pro Bowl.  Which opens the door for other players to participate.

The Eagles have announced that guard Evan Mathis has made it to unconferenced All-Star game, to be played on January 26.

Along with quarterback Nick Foles, Mathis was an alternate.  Based on the teams that qualified for the final four (the players from the Super Bowl teams don’t attend the Pro Bowl), spots necessarily opened at each position.

Evan Mathis shared the news with Twitter followers in a truly Evan Mathis way:  “Someone tell Tonya Harding I don’t need her help getting into the Pro Bowl anymore.”

Mathis made waves last year by making water on an IRS sign.  It’s not known what he’ll be doing in Honolulu, but no one should assume that the thing floating in the pool at the players’ hotel is a Baby Ruth.

    Top 2-3 guard in the NFL. He deserves it.

    He made AP All-Pro but not Pro Bowl. That tells you how flawed the system is.

    He’s clearly one of the top guards in the game.

    He’s a jerk. Second most unlikable player on the Eagles.

    But if it IS a Baby Ruth bar, cue the “shark” music.

    Pro bowl is a joke except for the guys that get extra cash for being selected. Why would you risk any type of injury for a glorified commercial for the league. At least pre-season games hlep determione a roster.

    Although this So called Pro Bowl is meaning less. Naming Pro Bowl Guys isn’t. Evan is the most under rated guard if pro football. I am thrilled for him. They can do away with the game itself and run a couple hours of commercials instead. Playing the game is a joke.

    Glad he made it! Well deserving. One of the best offensive lineman in the nfl.
