Sorry if this post is not spaced guys. I'm still having a lot of problems with the format of my posts. I have no idea why they never publish the way I have them setup. Hope it does not keep you from reading. Let me start by saying that I know this subject has been beaten to death, but I can't help it. I was watching ESPN (I know that's the root of the problem right there, lol.) and they had this bit talking asking was Tim fucking Tebow snubbed from the probowl! Are you fucking serious? Some of the so called "experts" and players were actually saying that yes, he was snubbed. What I am about to say is completely and totally without bias. This is the most ridiculous fucking thing I have seen on ESPN in a long, long time. That's saying something considering it's ESPN i'm talking about here. Let's look at Tebow's numbers. (or lack thereof) In 14 games Tebow had 1,729 yards/ a dismal 46.5 completion percentage/ 12 td's/ 6 int's/ 5 lost fumbles/ and a quarterback rating of 73.0. How anyone could look at you with a straight face and say that Tim Tebow deserved to be a pro bowl caliber quarterback needs help, because they have some serious mental problems. Again, i'm checking my bias at the door here. I would argue that Stafford was one of the biggest pro bowl snubs in the history of the NFL. How the fuck do you have the numbers that Staff had this year and not even make an ALTERNATE spot? Lately I have been hearing a lot of people (including many Lion's fans) starting to support the selection of Eli Manning instead of Matt. To me that's a joke too. No one had a clue that Eli and the Giants would be playing this well in the playoffs. Hell, most didn't think the Giants were even going to make it there in the first place. The selection of the pro bowlers came long before the playoffs ever started. Stafford had far superior numbers. Stafford's team did not back into the playoffs. Yes, Eli had some great come backs this season , but so did Stafford. In fact, Stafford helped the Lions become the first team to ever come back from 17 down and win in 3 seperate games in one season . He also helped the Lions become the only team in NFL history to come back and win 4 games in which a team has been down 13 points or more in a single season. So the whole Eli's 4th quarter comebacks argument really is not valid at all. This is coming from one of Eli's biggest fans too. I have lived at Ole Miss my whole life and have met Eli,Payton,Cooper, and Archie many times. My family has been painting homes for 50+ years here in Oxford including all the work for Eli's home here in Oxford. Eli will always be my second favorite football player of all time . Second only to the god that is Barry Sanders lol. (btw, the entire Manning family are the most kindest, down to earth people I think I have ever met in my life. They truly are wonderful people) Also, for Cam the scam Newton and Tony fucking Homo to be picked as alternates ahead of Stafford was a fucking travesty. For me it's the straw that broke the camel's back. I was never really big on the pro bowl in the first place, but now i'm fucking done with that popularity contest. It's just another chance for the commentators to brown nose little bitches like Rivers, Homo, Sanchez,Brady, Tebow, and all the other players that they seem to love like their children. When I saw that bit on ESPN earlier I literally wanted to throw my shoe at my t.v. Thanks to bud light and a lil bud for helping me keep my tube. Ok guys, i'm done with my rant now! I had to get that shit off my chest, so I figured i'd come vent via the pride. Here's to a great offseason boys! GO LIONS BABY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
