The whole pro bowl thing is a joke anymore, I just can't take is seriously as to who is picked and who isn't. Simply don't care.
Why is that? Name me some bad players that were selected to the Pro Bowl? Did Purdy and Tua get selected on reputation and are jokes or were they about the best QB's on playoffs teams and worthy?

The league's best players get selected to the pro bowl. There may be a guy or 2 who people think aren't worthy but, for the most part, the best players are chosen.

LOL. I get that Budda does the little things, but shouldn't Pro-Bowl starters have some of the...you know...#'s in addition to the intangibles? Maybe it's because of his incredible impact on a 4 win team?

* Zero interceptions* Zero forced fumbles* Zero fumble recoveries* Zero sacks* Zero passes defended

Dude is the most overrated Cardinal in history. The rep far outweighs the contribution.

With Budda's numbers this year and missed games I probably would have given it to Winfield Jr from Tampa.

Still this shows how much respect that Budda still gets around the league

Because often players aren't selected on how they've actually played that season which should, you know, be the metric.

Budda Baker was a bad player this year. There's no other objective way to look at it.
