The 2018 Pro Bowl Rosters were released this evening. They contained seven Chargers, six rookies, five golden domers, and a partridge in a pear tree. Use this thread to debate the relative merits of those chosen and those who were not.
Ty Schalter writes an article that politely points out what I've been saying for over a decade: Eli Manning is not, and never really was, a top quarterback. But that there is still value in that. We already knew that, of course, but folks like us tend to get drowned out by the "two rings" crowds and/or the shouting from over-the-top NY media rags. So it's nice to see an even-handed and not overly perjorative article about it.
