It’s not like we don’t already know that Pro Bowl voting is garbage, but if you need further confirmation, I present this tweet from, as Mike Keith calls him, The Great Jim Wyatt:
.@brettkern6 is currently 6th among punters in Pro Bowl voting by fans. @KingHenry_2 is currently 10th for running backs.— Jim Wyatt (@jwyattsports) December 4, 2019
No other @Titans are currently in the top 10 at their respective positions.
Pro Bowl voting ends on December 12.
This is just stupid.
Brett Kern leads the league in punts inside the 20 and is in the top 3 in net average. If you have watched the Titans this year, you know what a weapon Kern has been for this team. He is no doubt the best punter in the league. It would be a disaster for him to not be in the Pro Bowl.
And come on with Derrick Henry being 10th. Henry is third in the league in rushing yards, 3rd in rushing TDs, and 3rd in the league in yards per attempt*.
Titans players often get punished for playing in a small market when it comes to things like the Pro Bowl. The good thing is there is something we can do about this. The NFL is allowing voted to happen via Twitter through December 12th. If you use @brettkern6 and @KingHenry_2 and #ProBowlVote in a tweet it counts as a vote. Go ahead and tag @TitansMCM and @jmorrisMCM in those tweets and I will retweet them which counts for another vote. We can ban together and get these guys to the Pro Bowl!
