Just two Titans voted to the Pro Bowl

NFL: Detroit Lions at Tennessee Titans Christopher Hanewinckel-USA TODAY Sports

The Pro Bowl is a joke. We’ve all known that for a long time.

Hopefully that’s reason enough for Titans fans to quickly forget this year’s selections, or should I say snubs. Despite featuring a 10-4 record and the best offense in the NFL, Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown were the only two Titans players to make the NFL’s All Star game.

Let’s start by saying that these two deserve a huge congratulations. Henry leads all players in rushing yards (1,679) and is tied with Dalvin Cook for the lead in rushing TD’s (15). He’s well on his way to winning his second straight rushing title and is even flirting with 2,000 yards. Brown, meanwhile, has already reached double digits in receiving touchdowns (10). Both of these players are no brainers for the Pro Bowl.

But how the list of Titan Pro Bowlers stops there is beyond me. What about Ryan Tannehill? Several offensive linemen, including Rodger Saffold, Nate Davis and Ben Jones are worthy candidates in their own right. The defense is bad, but Malcolm Butler has played at an All-Star level this season.

Tannehill is the most ridiculous snub. I guess he’s just not popular enough. Sigh.

The best way to provide context to these snubs is to look at which teams had more than two players voted to the Pro Bowl: The list includes the Detroit Lions (3), Philadelphia Eagles (3) and New England Patriots (3). LOL.

The Pro Bowl is meaningless but the Titans should have had several more selections.
