St. Louis running back Steven Jackson is the latest to bow out, opening up a spot for Frank Gore. “The Inconvenient Truth” is a worthy all star, but the deluge of players sitting out diminishes the honor.
A few of these players will one day be considered for the Hall of Fame (like Vince Young!), and the Pro Bowl appearance number next to their name won’t say if they made the original team or not.
If the Colts make the Super Bowl, we’ll be on to the seventh-best quarterback in the AFC making the team. That’s only 23 more injuries away from JaMarcus Russell making the team, and no one wants that.
