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.

Yup
I once scored four touchdowns in a single game to clinch the 1966 City Championship for Polk High

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.


The cake is a lie!!!

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

Tom Brady can throw a football pretty far. Bob Sanders can throw Tom Brady even farther.

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.

Brady won't go. He only went in 2001 and 2004 iirc. Pro bowl is a complete joke.  


Peyton Manning - 12 playoff losses - most in NFL history

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

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....  :)

“There’s no question he’s (Luck) a complete football player and one of the top quarterbacks in this league already. He has a great career in front of him but I think he’s already established himself as a very poised and talented player that can do a lot of things to beat you and he manages his team well and plays good situational football.”       -New England Patriots Head Coach Bill Belichick

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.

    I saw in the Colts mailbag that Nicks will wear number 14. That's weird. I wish they would have just given him 88. Marvin was great, but you don't have to retire everyone's number that's ever been good on your team.
