Luck snubbed for Pro Bowl in favour of Schaub.


Recommended Posts

Qwiz and Vance are gonna be loving this, I imagine almost everyone else will be very disappointed.

 

Speaking realistically, one of Manning, Brady and Schaub is surely headed to the Super Bowl so I'd certainly not be shocked to see Luck going, he's just missed the initial roster.

 

Reggie Wayne and Robert Mathis are both going.

It is a shame that Luck isn't going, and I don't think Schaub should be going, but it is what it is. The reason why I like Luck over Schaub is that Schaub is that type of QB that won't win you games, and he won't lose you games. Luck is the main reason why the Colts have won so many close games, and that's why I like him over Schaub.

 

However, it's great to see Reggie and Robert back.

This is an outrage!  This is horrendous!  This is...

 

... eh, who really cares?  

 

 

The game is not even watchable anymore. Is "watchable" a word ? For sure not but anyone that watches this game is either a monster fan or a dunsky. The last play I saw in a Pro Bowl was Dwight Freeney doing something that looked like a waltz with a left tackle. The ball was snapped , they engaged their arms and moved side to side ountil the whistle blew.

I think every QB from both conferences was very deserving, but there were also a few from both conferences that got the short end of the stick, namely Luck and Drew Brees. 

 

As for RG3, while I think he is deverving I would have picked Brees over him.  Imagine if RG3 were not the media darling that he is?  i'm not discrediting him for the great season he has had, but there's a lot to be said about exposure, and RG3 has had a lot of it this season, and I believe that is one of the primary reasons he got in.

 

People will point at Luck's 18 INT's and RG3's 4 or 5 INT's, but Luck has thrown more passes, has less of a running game and a less dependable offensive line to depend on.  Luck is being asked to do more with less, and he is also being asked to run the entire playbook, and go through all of his progressions like a veteran QB would be asked to do.  RG3 is in a different situation.  He has a running back, and a decent offensive line.  The coaches are not asking him to run a full fledged Pro offense yet.  In fact I read an article that said the Redskins have adopted a system that using a lot of the same style that RG3 played in college, while mixing in some of the Shanahans concepts.

Until Cam came in the game. They wanted to hit him, and hit him good.

That's a great point. Does anyone even watch the Pro Bowl? Not worth getting riled up over.

I agree. Jeff Saturday made the pro bowl, and he isn't even good enough to start on his own team anymore. That's all that needs to be said about this game lol.

The pro bowl sucks... Last one I watched some of, was Mathis' first. And I was interested because it would be Dwight and Mathis together in the pro bowl for the first time... Pro bowl is boring and pointless anymore.

But RG3 made it. What a crock of crap.

 

 

What a joke.  Luck is so much better than Griffin.  Total racist nonsense especially those kids singing about Griffin at school.

 

And Schaub?  Another joke.

 

I hope Luck and the Colts DESTROY the lame Texans on Sunday.  

 

I'm pulling for ya.

lol why?  He's put up great numbers. And he's winning.

Wilson is having a better season than Griffin and he didn't make it. Luck has set numerous records and is definitely in the playoffs. That is why it is a joke. Not to mention the Redskins won without Griffin.

 ...Against the Browns. And Griffin has set some records too.

Browns aren't nearly as bad as their record suggests. I'm fine with the AFC choices, but Griffin was a popularity contest winner.

I thought that was the mantra here was: you are what your record says. At least it was when it was a convenient argument for Luck in the OROY race, but I suppose now that all the records of the rookie QBs are about the same, the argument is meaningless.

The Browns are just as pitiful as their record indicates. They beat the Chiefs. They beat the Ben-less Steelers. They beat the Raiders. Not world-beaters there.

Griffin beat Brees head-to-head and has been one of the most consistent quarterbacks all year long. He absolutely deserves his spot; remember that 0 TD 5 INT performance Brees put up against the Falcons? Right.

 He has been outstanding this year, and while popularity may play a part, I don't think it was the only factor. He has the wins unlike Brees this year, and I can't think of any other quarterbacks in the NFC that have played as electric as Griffin has this year.

ts. 

 

 

Wrong.

 

Their defense lost em that game.

 

As far as interceptions.

 

You don't have that many interceptions when you run most of the time and when you don't play half of your games because you're hurt.
