    Yeah, 790 said no other AFC South guys

    Congrats to DeAndre... hopefully his first of many

    Watt is Watt. Congrats too


    When is All-Pro announced?

    the merciless playing like one of the best OLBs in the AFC statistically, definitely got triple snubbed.

    Swap Megatron for Robinson and Kelce for Walker.

    Brandon Brooks snubbed.

    Calvin Johnson making the team is a total joke.

    Just saw that they still select fullbacks for the pro bowl. Hmm.

    What percentage of snaps are FBs even playing these days? Maybe 25% on average?

    If anything they should change it to make a couple of "flex" spots where the next highest voted TE, H-back, or FB gets in so that it's not only designated for the few FBs that still exist and play regularly.

    Completely agree with this. Megatron and Kelce just made it because of their name

    Besides the first 2-3 games, Joseph had a very good year. Probably took him a few games to get up to game speed after not playing in the preseason.

    PFF has him ranked 9th among CBs this season... with Honey Badger being #1

    If Hop has a huge 2016 season he will get some crazy money. Uncle Bob prepare yourself

    I know Andrew Luck has had an off year mainly because he has been hurt, but I think he deserves to go to the Pro Bowl. He is a fan favorite and the pride of Houston. He has accomplished so much in the past few years, so I think he deserves a spot in this game.

    Tied for #1 in passes defended, tied for #1 in INT returned for TDs, #1 by a huge amount in total yards INT returned, tied for #2 in total INTs.

    I didn't mean insane in a bad way. I meant it as amazing. I should have picked my words better

    No worries, your description is very appropriate... he has had a crazy (good) season so far. I wonder how many GMs passed on him because of his reputation for being a problem case off the field?
