Ten Takeaways from NFL's Pro Bowl Rosters

With just two weeks left in the NFL season, the league announced its Pro Bowl rosters on Tuesday night. Are you ready to celebrate your song and get angry with the inevitable stumbles? Are you ready not to watch the Pro Bowl game when it happens in January? So we are. Here are 10 takeaways from the boxes: 1. Chargers are stacked others 11-3 football teams in Los Angeles lead the league in Pro Bowl elections, with seven in total. They are divided fairly evenly, with four on offensive (quarterback Philip Rivers, broad recipient Keenan Allen, running back Melvin Gordon and Mike Pouncey), two on defense (defensive end Melvin Ingram and security Derwin James) and a special teamer Phillips). Chargers are a Chief's loss away from being no. 1 seed in the AFC, which would guarantee home field advantage throughout the playoffs. This team is filled with talent and can legitimately fight Super Bowl. It's just a shame that no one in L.A. seems to care. 2nd Chris Jones Robbed Complaints about Pro Bowl Snubs are tired. The voting is fundamentally broken, and some omissions are inevitable. But I can not let this go: Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones has 14.0 sacks this season, the fifth most in the NFL, and has recorded at least one bag in 10 straight games. He is also seventh in QB matches and is bound to fourth in tackle for a loss. There are many other stumbles on the list, including two of the…

1. Chargers are stacked

seed in the AFC, which would guarantee home field advantage throughout the playoffs. This team is filled with talent and can legitimately fight Super Bowl. It’s just a shame that no one in L.A. seems to care.

2nd Chris Jones Robbed

Complaints about Pro Bowl Snubs are tired. The voting is fundamentally broken, and some omissions are inevitable. But I can not let this go: Chiefs defensive tackle Chris Jones has 14.0 sacks this season, the fifth most in the NFL, and has recorded at least one bag in 10 straight games. He is also seventh in QB matches and is bound to fourth in tackle for a loss. There are many other stumbles on the list, including two of the best offensive tacklers in the league (we come to them), Pittsburgh Linebacker T.J. Watt, Bucs Broad Receiver Mike Evans, and many others. But even in an ocean of crime, Jones seems to be omission.

3rd Pro Bowl Has No Idea Which Offensive Linemen To Choose

Last season, Eagles center Jason Kelce was undoubtedly the best center in NFL and helped lead a dominant Philly offensive line to the Super Bowl. He was part of Eagles offensive, pulling out in space to set blocks and earned the Pro Football Focus the highest blocking class among all offensive linemen. Kelce earned a first-team All-Pro node but was somehow snubbed from Pro Bowl.

This year’s Packers left tack David Bakhtiari missed Pro Bowl despite being the best left tackle throughout the football. And Chiefs right tack Mitchell Schwartz also missed. It may be hard to get a sense of how offensive lines play, but here’s a snapshot: Pro Football Focus ranks Schwartz fourth among all offensive line men, while heads left tack Eric Eric, who scored this year, ranks 53. These two play on the same offensive line – it is clear who is better.

This is not even a case that guys release because they play for smaller markets or obscure layers. These are players for Packers, Chiefs and Eagles! Pro Bowl is simply not equipped to evaluate offensive linemen.

But talking about Fisher …

5. We just got a clue on this year’s Defensive Rookie

This is a defensive rookie class for the ages. Security Derwin James Leadership Leader, Colts Linebacker Darius Leonard Leads League In Tackles, Cowboys Linebacker Leighton Vander Esch Anchors A Rebuilded Dallas Defense, Broncos Defensive End Bradley Chubb Has 12.0 Sacks And Browns Corner Denzel Ward has picked up three passes and restored two fumbling. But in recent weeks, DROY’s race has decreased to James and Leonard, with oddsmakers giving James minus-200 odds and Leonard plus-170. Well, James just did Pro Bowl and Leonard did not. AP chooses this year’s rookie prize, so it’s not like this overlaps with Pro Bowl, but James was already a favorite and got a big nick in his direction. Plus, chargers are set to make playoffs and Colts may miss it.

As for Leonard, you can call this a snub:

6th The most obvious older choice: Aaron Rodgers

Pro Bowl always has some dubious choices, the result of a voting process that includes input from fans, coaches and players and inexplicably happens well before the season is over. Some fan favorites or generally respected veterans always sneak in, even when they have low seasons. And this year belongs to the most eye-catching selection for Rodgers.

He has not played as one of the league’s best quarterbacks this season. He ranks 11th in adjusted net meters per try, 14th in fits grades and 20 in QBR. He just threw 23 touchdowns, netting a score of only 4.3 percent of his attempt to fit, who ranked 21 in the league and would be his lowest score since he took over as Green Bay starts in 2008. He gave us some great moments this season , from his week 1 recurring over the bears to his 6th decimation of 49ers, but he also lacked open passports and looked increasingly washed.

Rodgers could return to next season with a new coach and a clean health ball. But in 2018 he did not play at Pro Bowl level.

7th AFC has too many good quarters

AFC has Patrick Mahomes II, Philip Rivers, Andrew Luck and Tom Brady, and only three of them could do it. Luck ended up like the odd man.

Of this group Mahomes and Rivers are inarguable. Mahomes leads the league in passing laps and touchdowns, and is 10 touchdowns away from a season record of 55. He probably will not get there, but this has been a historic season for him and he is the MVP frontrunner. Meanwhile, rivers have a career year – he is second in NFL in adjusted net meters per try and third in fitting grades, and has thrown 31 touchdowns but only eight interceptions. He may be MVP if Mahomes collapse down the line.

By Brady and Luck, it’s a throw up. The two passengers are almost equal to laps (they are separated by only 28), but while Luck has thrown for 10 more touchdowns, Brady is much higher in all / A (7.37 to 6.85) and has fewer interceptions (nine to 13). Luck will probably only be able to handle the Comeback Player of the Year.

8th Phillip Lindsay’s Season is Historic

It was a surprise when an unbeaten freelancer took over Denver’s start of the job after Broncos used a third round of Oregon driving back Royce Freeman. But Lindsay has been money all year long and fetched 1,221 meters from scrimmage and 10 touchdowns, with an average 5.4 meters per berry on the ground. Now, Lindsay is the first ever offensive UDFA to make a Pro Bowl like a rookie. Although his way to Denver backfield was not conventional, Lindsay could link for a long time an Broncos’ run game.

ninth NFC Running Back Field was too crowded for Alvin Kamara

Kamara has racked up 1,487 scrimmage yards and 16 touchdowns, ranking sixth and second in NFL respectively. He amounts to 4.6 meters per berry. Nevertheless, the Pro Bowl backs are from NFC Todd Gurley, Saquon Barkley and Ezekiel Elliott. Although only Gurley tops Kamara in touchdowns, the three players are the top three in the league in scrimmage yards, and they all have a higher meter per bowler than Kamara.

Kamara is a Pro Bowl-level talent; He’s just on a stacked conference.

10th And just remember: The guy will not go

Every year, the players reject their Pro Bowl invitations. Some players are in the Super Bowl, and therefore can not go to an exhibition game when preparing for a championship. Some just do not want to go. This means that NFL will fill in roster with alternates – and a player who fills in as an alternative gets the usual Pro Bowl designation, the same as everyone. So your favorite player who did not still have a chance.
