Tom Brady is an NFC Pro Bowl snub

Earlier today, Tom Brady was a 14-time Pro Bowler. He still is.

Somewhat surprisingly, Brady is not one of the three Pro Bowl quarterbacks from the NFC. Instead, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, and Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray got the honors.

Brady, in his first year as an NFC quarterback, currently is second in the NFC in passing yardage with 3,886. He’s third in passing touchdowns with 32. He’s sixth in passer rating with 97.5, ahead of Murray.

Murray, however, brings uncanny running ability to the table, and that clearly made the difference. As a passer, Brady definitely is one of the best three quarterbacks in the NFC.

It’s ironic, of course, that Brady made it this year. In all prior years, Brady found a way to not go. This year, when there’s no game to be played and thus no reason to avoid the game, Brady didn’t make it.

  1. They got it right. There’s no way Brady should beat out Rodgers, Wilson, or Murray.
    The Pro Bowl is a joke, anyway, but in this instance, the right guys made it.

  2. And, it won’t mean a thing if Brady goes on to win a 7th ring. It’s about getting hot at the right time, not stat padding in meaningless games.

  3. Honestly it Should of been Brady over Murray He has better stats and Tampa has a better record than the Cardinals

  4. Demario Davis is the best linebacker in the whole damn league and he didn’t make a Pro Bowl. That’s a way bigger snub than Brady, who doesn’t deserve to go ahead of the people that did.

  5. Brady’s goals haven’t changed. He didn’t set out at the beginning of the season to get to the pro bowl. His only goal is the super bowl. There isn’t any voting necessary for the super bowl. You actually have to earn that one.

    Brady had only ever been about winning. Super Bowls are all that matters. This week the comeback needed to be through the air based on what clock was left, and he threw for 320 in the 2nd half. It was necessary. We’ve never once heard him talk about stats, pro bowls or MVPs. He’s won with different teams in many different ways, with completely overturned rosters. Try to keep up.

  7. Tom Brady when notified he was left off the Pro Bowl roster – “That’s OK I’m usually busy playing in another Superbowl that time of year anyway”

  8. Murray deserved it. Dude is only in his second year and lighting it up.

    Brady is in his 20th year. Meaning he’s a 43-year old QB doing something no one ever has. Not to mention is he doing it better than Murray judging by the stats.

  9. If he plays next year he will just have to cheat harder to get it.
    At least it makes the ball boys jobs easier that they won’t have to deflate the balls when he is on the field then re inflate them when he is not.

  10. It’s not a snubbing, but a close decision falling in Murray’s favor. I’m okay with the three NFC QBs. I think they got it right.

  11. LOL – Please. Who watches the Pro Bowls? I don’t find their not including Brady on their list of any significance at all. They just don’t count.

  12. To the clown that said: “Brady is in his 20th year. Meaning he is 43-year old doing something no one has ever done.”

    George Blanda played from 1949 to 1975. He was 48 when he retired.

    Try to keep up.👍

    Blanda threw a total of 235 passes in his last 9 years in the league. He was a place kicker his last 5 years. I say again, no one is doing what Brady is doing at age 43. If Brady becomes a place kicker, then we can talk. Brady is still a top 10 QB at the age of 43. What is there not to get here?

  14. Murray had a bigger jump than Brady did which is why he got in. However, what Brady is doing at 43 is ridiculous.
