Pro Bowl Snubs

We all knew Shane and Nnamdi were gonna make the probowl. I thought McFadden had a decent shot. And I also thought that Zach Miller had a chance with the injury to Dallas Clark.

  I am shocked that Jacoby Ford is not a Pro-Bowler at the kick return specialist position. Instead Marc Mariani makes it? I don't give a rat's ass if he's returning punts to boot. Let's check stats.

Player      KR       TD       Long    AVG     YARDS               PR       TD     AVG

Ford          51         3         101T     24.4      1,244                NA      NA      NA

Mariani     56         1           98T     25.2       1,411               25       1         12.9

  Throw in that 2 of Ford's TDs were to start a game, his 24 receptions for 435 yards and 2 TDs, plus his 16.6 YPC rushing average and TD of 71 yards. Not to mention quite possibly the greatest catch I've seen and I can't help but feel Ford got robbed. The best arguement stance is simple. RRRAIDER fan or not. I haven't heard of this kid Mariani all season. Well, nothing big anyway.

  I'll also argue that Sebas got snubbed too.

Player       ATT     MADE     LONG     50+   

Sebas       32         40            59          4

Cundiff      27         24            49          0

  Sebas led all kickers in the league in FGs made.  Cundiff is tied for 8th.  Cundiff does have 9 more Touchbacks than Sebas. I am a bit surprised that Seymour made it. I have to remind myself that this is alot more of a popularity contest than it is reality. And complaining about Probowls wouldn't be an issue if we had a 1st round playoff opponent. I know it would mean alot to the players. They can bullshit all they want, but after Sunday's game, they'd sure like to have the honor of one more game. RRRAIDERS
