The 2018 Pro Bowl Rosters were released this evening. The Chargers lead the way with seven nominations and two Melvins, while six rookies - but not either of the two linebackers most frequently mentioned as the Rookie of the Year candiates - also made the cut. Somehow, shockingly, Josh Allen did not.
At quarterback, our numbers four, five, and eight in DYAR were left off the teams in favor of those at numbers six, seven, and nine, and while Matt Ryan has a pretty good reason to be annoyed, it's pretty hard to quibble with Tom Brady and Aaron Rodgers as legacy picks. Snubs abound, though, at other positions.
Who made it that shouldn't have? Who (besides every talented OLB in a 4-3 and every talented DE in a 3-4) got snubbed? Why are we still giving fullbacks Pro Bowl slots over pass catchers in the year 2018? And after all the Super Bowl participants and 1/3 of all other nominees drop out, how many more players will get to put "Pro Bowl nominee" on their resume for their next round of contract negotiations? Discuss below.
