This went WAAAY worse than I thought it would.
So I didn’t even realize Pro Bowl selections had been made so when I heard that they had I thought it would be fun to see how many I could guess….Apparently I don’t watch football anymore, and when I do I only watch the Patriots, Packers, Steelers, Cowboys, and Lions.
I knew I wasn’t paying as much attention to football (and individual players in particular) this year because I decided not to play fantasy, but this was embarrassing. I almost didn’t want to finish or publish this post. But if nothing else, I’m a man of integrity Here is my 2017 Pro Bowl predictions:
(Before you read my list or the actual list, this is actually kind of fun, maybe give it a shot and see how you do).
- Aaron Rogers
- Matt Stafford
- Dak Preskot
- Zeek Elliot
- Golden Tate
- Big Ben
- Derrick Carr
- Levian Belle
- Antonio Brown
- AJ Green
That’s it. I can’t even name a TE in the NFC…Sad. After I was done I took a look at the actual list of players and wow. I left of some household names (and included some really dumb ones I think). I mean Julio Jones might be the best player in the league. Amari Cooper is a stud, Demarco Murray is a name I should have been able to come up with. This was/is embarrassing. Here is the actual list if you’re curious: 2017 Pro Bowl
All that being said, Stafford not being selected to the Pro Bowl is CRAZY. He is an MVP candidate, I know Dak, Rogers and Matt Ryan are awesome, but Stafford might be having a better year than all three of them..and that’s coming from a guy who clearly knows a lot about football and hs dialed into player performance this year.
