I have no idea who Vincent Troia is, but it's not everyday you see a Nashville paper run a commentary with the headline "For Titans to win a Super Bowl, Fisher has to go". I mean it's no surprise that this was written by someone who will almost certainly never need locker room access or press credentials. It's the same points that have been debated a billion times on MCM, but it just feels more legitimate coming from a news paper!

CJ2K didn't have a huge day in the Pro Bowl, but he did score the game winning TD. VY looked below mediocre, but he's not the kind of guy who's suited to do well in that type of low-intesity, non-game planning situation (see: every pre-season game he's every played).
Adrian Peterson called Chris Johnson the second best back in the NFL, he then dropped the nearest football because someone two blocks away coughed. Adrian Peterson has about as many career fumbles as he does receptions. Adrian Peterson orders his gloves from Crisco. Cathedrals across Minnesota have quit ringing their bells for mass in the fall, they just wait for Adrian Peterson to fumble again. In terms of ball security, Adrian Peterson makes Tiki Barber look like Chris Johnson.
Kevin Mawae made his goal of starting in the Pro Bowl (and lets be honest, being the first alternate makes him one of the most deserving guys to lay yesterday), and thanks to the victory, pocketed an extra $45,000. The losing NFC team still cleared a nice $22,500.
T-Rac (sans Posse) makes Deadspin.com for his Pro Bowl sight-seeing while sitting along side that Jags mascot that looks like Chester Cheetos with jaundice.
Here's the full All-Decade list from the NFL. No big surprises, and Mawae remains the only long-term Titan on the list, but the one that made me stand-up and clap was former Titans Lorenzo Neal. At least this somewhat makes up for all of those Pro Bowls he got robbed of because he didn't get the carries.
Just in case you were afraid that the Pro Bowl counted for anything, Matt Schaub won the MVP. That's a good indication that this was as important as the Hall of Fame game was for us.
Hot off the presses, PFW has the complete invite list for the Combine. I didn't see any glaring omissions, but let us know in the comments if you see someone they clearly missed (there's always a few).
