Identifying The Pro Bowl Snubs Is More Entertaining Than The Pro Bowl Itself

As we mentioned yesterday, the Pro Bowl rosters are out; which means it's time for the annual Pro Bowl bitching to commence.

To get the obvious ones out of the way: How is Philip Rivers left out? He has the league's highest passer rating and is tied for the most touchdown passes. So the Chargers are having a bad year; all the more reason to pick him. Isn't that what the game is for? And Matt Ryan is also left out, but Brett Favre is in? Who are the ad wizards who came up with that one?

More snubs here, in a pretty good article by the Boston Sports Examiner. Rivers is showing up on most snub lists, as is Cardinals linebacker Karlos Dansby (pictured).

Second in popularity to the Pro Bowl snub conversation is the it's-time-to-abolish-the-Pro-Bowl conversation. It's foolish to risk injury in this game, and half these guys don't show up; you're going to end up with Chad Pennington on the AFC roster anyway. Discuss.
