Monday’s PFT Live included a question from a Vikings fan who was miffed at the absence of Minnesota players in the Pro Bowl. Since then, three have been added to the annual all-star game.
And so maybe the fan who complained about the Vikings having few Pro Bowlers will now be placated. Hopefully, that same fan won’t be lamenting in a week a serious injury suffered by any member of the Vikings contingent in a game that doesn’t count.
Sure, serious injuries rarely happen in the half-speed scrimmage that people watch because it’s on TV. But it’s just a matter of time before someone tears an ACL in a game that doesn’t matter, and when that happens the Pro Bowl itself could snap along with the ligament.
