The 2014 Pro Bowl rosters have been announced tonight on NFL Network. Which players were most deserving? Which were snubbed at the expense of others? The Pro Bowl rosters announced tonight isn't the final product that we'll see in Hawaii. Selected players drop out due to injury, personal reasons, and just simply wanting to get away from football after a long season. While the honor of being selected still carries a significant amount of prestige, the award has lost some luster over the years. The NFL has tried many methods to restore the honor of being named but to little effect. Hey, it's still football and we'll watch anyway even if its a glorified 7 on 7 drill most years.The NFL really should consider incorporating skills challenge contests during the game (ex, a game of HORSE between kickers on FG tries). Who wouldn't pay to see that?
The Pro Bowl is taking a page from the NHL All Star Game and having a "fantasy" draft regardless of conference affiliation.
You can find the rosters here.
The lone representative for the Titans is CB Alterraun Verner. Congrats ATV!! From looking at the teams this year, the voters got it right for the most part. Jurrell Casey should have made it though. Kendall Wright certainly has a deserving case over Andre Johnson but the other receivers listed are pretty good. Falcons TE and first ballot HOF Tony Gonzalez should have made it in as nice retirement gift as well. And oh Ruston Webster, PAY DAT ATV!
