I think Mahomes’ predecessor was named as an alternate in 2016…..starting to see a pattern here.

I’ve been upset ever since I first saw the news last night. How dare they snub Chris Jones. His stats are on par with Khalil Mack this season.

We have more starters where it matters. They have what 1 defense and 1 ST player starting. Also they need to stop going with fan vote. Just go strictly on merit. You lead your position in statistics important to the position. Or just use PFF rating system. Stop going on name value. The game would be so much more rewarding to the players that way.

So you think their statistics have nothing to do with their performance? Guess I don’t get what you’re getting at. The casual fan, goes on name recognition alone. There’s a lot more casuals than there are die-hards. Take the fan voting out of the process completely. Chris Jones would absolutely be one of the top 2 had it not been fan voted.

I think the process is flawed. All processes are. But there are two in play. One for fame one for peer recognition

I may be a homer, but I don’t see Sherman in the same category as Jones. Or Schwartz. Or Fisher. But there’s a PB spot for an AFC FB and agree he is the most deserving within the rules.

Not trying to cut him down. But there’s no perfect solution and two systems are better than a perfecticized system. And yes I made that word up.

part of the reason jones got left out is its a flawed system. Hes listed as a DE, so hes going up against Watt, Ingram, Clowney even though he plays the overwhelming majority of his snaps inside, mostly as a 3 tech. The Pro Bowl really needs to follow the All Pro team and categorize it as a Interior DL – Edge Rushers – Off Ball Linebackers.

ya the pro bowl is silly but it does matter to the players, a lot of them have incentive bonuses that they get making pro bowl/ all pro etc. I saw an article where it said Hudson missed out on 100k by not making the pro bowl.

You can say it’s flawed, but if you are listing JJ Watt, they play the same position. DE/DT. Fisher got 500k bonus.

JJ Watt 2018 Stats 14.5 Sacks; TT 41; PDef 4; Int 0; TD 0
C Jones 2018 Stats 14 Sacks; TT 33; PDef 5, Int 1; TD 1

IMO, Stone Cold has had a better season because points > a few extra tackles.

Doesn’t change what I said at all. Hat is talking about positions being flawed since it’s a base 4-3 so a 3-4 DE is still listed as DE instead of DT. Can’t add JJ Watt as an argument when he played the same 5 tech position.

I meant more that the guys that got in are guys with a history that whoever votes on these things recognized. Cameron Heyward over Chris..are you fucking kidding me? Even Casey in no way shape or form deserves is above Chris, and for that matter Atkins doesn’t even have a good argument. It’s just so fuxking lazy.

Ahh…..the good ‘ole days of repeatedly predicting to Dubbs / PhatAl that the OL “issues” were going to mysteriously and suddenly vanish, coinciding with the departure of their favorite player.

And that magically, and totally coincidentally, the WSH OL (who was expected to very good) would all of sudden, mysteriously regress for no apparent reason.

Fisher is a #1 overall pick. He benefitted additionally from being listed in the “C” bubble position on your scoring grid. He is not even the best tackle on the Chiefs roster.
Sherman is one of two fullbacks in the entire conference, give or take. And he caught a really nice pass on TV.
It’s not logical, it’s the Pro Bowl.
I hear fans have a say.

I love the sausage but Devlin actually gets meaningful snaps as a FB for the Pats.

Eric Fisher is average at best. Schwartz SNUBBED.

Chris Jones…14 sacks and defensive player of the month for October. Total snub.
