Luck to Pro Bowl

30 posts in this topic

Hey everyone, lets make sure Andrew makes it to Hawaii this year (unless of course he's practicing for the Super Bowl). Here's the latest story from NFL.com.

http://www.nfl.com/probowl/story/0ap1000000109982/article/robert-griffin-iii-andrew-luck-among-pro-bowl-vote-leaders

Right now, he is the #3 QB for AFC with only our own Peyton and that Patriot guy ahead of him.

GO COLTS... and GO PRO BOWL Voters -- let's get Andrew's ticket punched.

I don't think he'll have a problem in the world being selected.

But I'll help do my part.

:facepalm: Arian Foster with more votes than AP :facepalm:

It's just proof of the incompetence of regular people voting.

Like Michael Oher and Jeff Saturday and Patrick Willis over Navorro Bowman and John Kuhn over Henry Hynoski and Haloti Ngata over Geno Atkins and Victor Crus over Calvin Johnson and Ed Reed over Jairus Byrd and Matt Kalil over Trent Williams/Joe Staley and Charles Woodson......

Yeah, fans are dumb. Instead of having the Pro-Bowl to recognize the best players, they should have different divisions of All-Pro teams: The First and Second Team All-Pros, All-Conference Teams, and All-Division Teams.

They are in two different conferences. Irrelevant

No, it's not. It's true that AP can't get knocked out, but he is twice the player Arian is, and deserves way more votes.

He only has a 16,000 vote lead over Big Ben, everybody get out and vote because I'm sure the Pittsburgh faithful will be doing the same.

Luck over Schaub? I don't know about that.

Yeah Schaub deserves it, very underrated

I'd bet Manning or Brady will either be in the Super Bowl or stay home if they lose before that, so Luck should make it. But Schaub deserves a nod over Luck.

Now if the Colts sweep Hou and win the division, Luck should get in over him.

Honestly, it shows you how the fan Pro Bowl voting is a joke. Guys get voted just by name recognition. I love Luck to death and think he will be an elite QB for the next 15 years. But do I think this year he is a better QB than Matt Schaub and what Schaub has done? No. Do I think RG3 is better than Matt Ryan? No. Problem is Schaub and Ryan aren't flashy players and therefore don't get votes. Jeff Saturday was honestly shot a couple years back. I am surprised he would make the Pro Bowl.

seems like just a popularity contest. I wish they had just the NFL players vote for pro bowl and make a rule that they can't vote for anyone on their own team.

are you forgetting Matt Schaub? 285 of 445, 3,294, 65%, 21 Tds, 10 INTs

Or Andy Dalton? 282 of 445, 3,186, 63%, 25 TDs, 14 INTs

Luck (18 TDs, 18 INTs, 55%) is better than those 4 yet

No he's not he's showing a link to a story with the votes on it and saying Luck is currently in third place.

He's encouraging Colts fans to vote for their QB nothing wrong with that on a Colts forum.

The Broncos and Ravens aren't good teams?  He did lead the Texans to a win over both and the Ravens game wasn't even close.

Overrated??

The guy is never mentioned in the top QB conversations...

And Luck doesn't deserve pro bowl.

    • Actually, if I'm being totally honest here, I'd make NFL referees a permanent 12 month position with great benefits & a nice salary vs the temporary occupation it is now.    My reasoning is simple: If you compensate people well so that they can devote their entire time perfecting & improving their craft, they tend to excel at it & negate their mistakes over time.    Plus, with all the new rules/modifications that get tweaked every yr, it would be a wise move to validate to your referee crews that you value their attention to detail through their pocket book. When you pay people well, they strive to make their bosses look good. 
    • Pre-game & halftime interviews with both head coaches. Yeah I know, they are not an NFL rule per say unless you wanna count them as a CBA mandate to make themselves available to journalists during a game.    I just have never really gotten anything meaningful over these reporter/coach interactions. 90% of the remarks are tired cliches & even if you missed part of the game; nobody ever looks online to say hear what Erin Andrews asked a coach at halftime. 
    • I agree with taking away the taunting rule tool because it's just another version of smack talking live. If you wanna ban the throat slashing gesture, the pretend pistol firing gesture, or the archery firing motion fine; but everything else is fair game.   It's your job to shut your adversary up by scoring TDs or crippling their ground game on defense on 3rd down. And why is the league allowed to promote their shield & jerseys for profit but players can't engage in individual expressions of self promotion either? Seems highly hypocritical to me Mr. Commissioner. Just saying. 
    • I kind of agree with this reverting back I mean. This idea that both sides get an opportunity to touch the ball on offense is overrated to me. Yeah I know, the coin toss by a ref was given excessive weight to a random element of chance, but still. I liked it when the first score in OT even a FG could win the darn game. It was a rush man. The arbitrariness of it all in overtime so many things coaches had no control over: heads or tails on the toss, hearing what player captains declared on the field incorrectly before the toss itself; & life in general isn't fair anyway. Why should both teams get the ball in OT anyway? It gives almost voodoo magic mystique to how the coin lands.    Plus, a lot of players can get injured playing an extra quarter of football. They're tired, exhausted, & say a coach is on the hot seat by their owner & needs to make the playoffs to retain their job...And then wham the team looses their star WR or DB? Crap.    Not only that. Field Goals are crisp, clean, & the guys can get a shower faster & clean up sooner for post game interviews too.    Last but not least, one of the reasons I refuse to watch baseball is that the games take too long to finally conclude & the longer games play out the more it interferes with TV programming & sleeping habits of some fans too. Length isn't always an asset in broadcasting as producers or consumers overall. 
    •   That would be my pick too. I don't think any other team has underachieved as much in the past few years. They have questionmarks at LB, S, OL and HC, along with Rivers late game meltdowns but if Lynn proves out to be at least average coach, I think they are fairly serious threat. That's one stacked division they play in though and rough schedule.
