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

Recommended Posts

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.

lmao

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.

    • It’s gonna be a very good football team. With the right coaches the sky is the limit for an Andrew luck Led team with a good defense and o line
    • There is a big debate over here about this subject as well, when a soccer team fails, is it the players fault or is it the way they are coached. More often than not it is the coach that is fired and the players stay. Taking Doyle as an example Was he in the correct place to make the catches - Yes Was the ball thrown to him in a way that allowed him to catch it - Yes So how can it be the coaches fault that he dropped/fumbled the ball as often as he did?   That said it is the coaches responsibility to rally and inspire the players when things are going against them, from what I saw last night Pagano did not seem capable of doing this, especially when he saw history repeating itself in the closing stages of the game.   He should have been doing what it took to make the players aware of the consequences of another defeat rather than pick up the pieces after it happened.   I think the only thing that will make Pagano leave is if the revenues flowing into the team take a dip and the fans turn against him (if they haven't done so already), I do not like to see any-one getting the sack in any walk of life, but I do not think if he were to go he would need to "sign on" with the type of payoff he would received.   As I have said before, I watch from afar, but even from here things do not look good.
    • Competent being the key there... we're SOL in that regard.
    • This is not the Titans of yesteryear. They probably look at the Colts and say the exact same thing. Don't fool yourself, Indy is not that good right now unfortunately . Tenn has great running backs, a vey solid offensive line and MM has only gotten better each year and is very talented. They are better than the Colts.
