Luck will be in the Pro Bowl, or the Super Bowl, right?

27 posts in this topic

Its my understanding that Luck was the first alternate at

QB behind Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Matt Schaub

...with just 6 playoff teams in the Super Bowl..and the high likelihood that Cincy or Baltomore

will NOT win 3 straight and reach the Super Bowl.....that pits Andrew in the Pro Bowl

or (wait for it) the Super Bowl.

So Luck, who might not yet be the 4th best QB in the AFC, was honored..he wasn't snubbed, right?

He was selected first alternate, so yes, he'll get a Hawaiin vacation if one of those three go to the SB.

His immediate family may actually watch the game.

I'm happy Andrew was picked 4th...That's about where he should have been..

...Andy Dalton might argue......but Luck was probably the 4th best QB in the AFC this year..

I'm surprised at the reaction....This is a big honor

I would still like to know how KC has 5 players in the Pro Bowl when they only won 2 games.

Hard to argue with any of them, except maybe Berry. They did play pretty good D this year.

Luck will be in the Pro Bowl... Brady won't go whether he wins the SB or not, so there's his slot.

 

 

Also, the Chiefs have a lot of talented players.  Arguably, they're even more talented than the Colts are.  They just lack the leadership to put it all together, I think.

but honestly how many Pro Bowls has Brady actually played in. he gets voted in and then if he isn't in the Super Bowl he doesn't play in the pro bowl. I think if you are voted in by your fans you should at least make the trip and suit up. if you don't then why in the world are we voting for you? 

 

 

...so in other words I think Luck will be in regardless.

I agree they did play good D.......just not good enough. The Pro Bowl is nothing more than a popularity contest. Pretty bogus if you ask me. 

 

Pretty hard to win games when your offense is that bad.

KC has a lot of talent.  They just don't have the coach to put it all together and a QB to lead a strong offense.  I've heard some analysts say they are the most talented team outside of the QB position.

 

Chances are that Luck does make it in and that's great to see because he deserves it.  However, I'd be much happier with him skipping the Pro Bowl to play in the Bowl game the following week

He will attend as an alternate. Marino and Bob Griffin are the only QB rookies to ever make it on the original roster.

It doesn't matter if you play in the probowl, as much as it matters if your selected.

Unless you're a rookie..and then you want to go...

Tell your wife or girlfriend (or both) that you're turning down a free week in Hawaii....

Who cares about the pro bowl? No player cares about the game, they care about the bonus they receive for making it and a trip to Hawaii. The pro bowl is just awful, they need to get rid of it all together.

I'm hoping one of these guys wins the Super bowl, and the other goes to the Pro Bowl.  I guess in ascending numerical order....  :)

Flacco or Dalton in the SB? Doubt it, Luck will get some play time in Hawaii barring an uber epic miricle trip for the Colts to the SB.

Most likely it will be Manning or Brady in the SB, preferably Manning. I'd still take the Texans and Matt Knight Schuablamanan over the Ravens, Bengals, or I hate to say it but Colts.

    • https://www.youtube.com/shared?ci=4wVAee2z-aE   I don't mean to sound condescending or insulting. But its frustrating to me how hard it is to scout for one, and how often people are wrong. I'm wrong about expectations from players sometimes, and but with the exception of alshon Jeffries, my scouting predictions have been really good for about 7 years.    My favorite quote was saying morris Claiborne was a bumb and I put Casey heywars as my top 3 corner in the draft when about 6 or 7 were in front of him. I think he was my 2nd. Not to brag or nothing.    But if you dont see a bigger, and somehow stronger Dwight freeney out of this dude, I dont know what to tell you. This is an easy pick up, no trade needed at 15. He a day one starter   
    • Oh yeah genius. How many times do you see qbs, especially at WVU getting sacked in wildcat offenses. Its designed to get rid of the ball in seconds.    You can't judge of one game, and he played with a very high motor. Which is more than I van say about bejorn, give up on the play warner.    You guys are really that blind you can't see the Shir speed and acceleration off the snap?    You can't see the force and quickness of his spin moves?   You can't see his knack for rushin hands up.    You can't see the power in his bullrush? Are you kidding me?   And BTW, this is a breakdown video of every play he was involved in.   This is not a highlight tape. Highlight tapes are for kids. Breakdown videos are for ametuer nfl scouts. Real scouts have all the film.    Let me post a highlight video so you can see the differnce
    • I think it would also help to see if converted players (went from a 4-3 DE to a 3-4 OLB, or vice versa) are riskier choices than players who stay in the same system. 
    • He's also noted for his coverage ability. But yeah I need to see what he does at the combine first. 
    • I agree. Like i said i have no issue in drafting a DE if it is BPA, just that i wouldnt single out the position as a "major need". I think it is definitely a need, but not on the same level as olb at the moment. Not to the same level where that if there was 1 olb and 1 de of similar grade available at our pick that i would choose the de over the olb. To me, for it to be a major need it would have to be to the point where i would be very unhappy if nothing was done at the position by the end of the offseason. I could live with DE position as it is. But I  would be livid if maggitt and Ayers are our starting OLBs week 1.   I think we are basically in agreement and just getting caught up in semantics. We are saying the same thing, im just on the left of it looking right and you are on the right looking left (if that makes any sense).
