The NFL released its Pro Bowl roster (EARL THOMAS, BABY!!!!) and it was loaded with Patriots, Bears, 49ers, Packers, Saints, and Broncos. There were some questionable snubs, including league-leading tackler London Fletcher once again not making it to Hawai’i. ESPN in its infinite wisdom put out a SportsNation poll asking which player was snubbed from the AFC Pro Bowl roster. There’s just something wrong with one of the options…
Yep, Matthew Stafford of the playoff-bound Detroit Lions was widely considered to be a Pro Bowl snub on the AFC roster. Well when you play in the NFC North, then it’s not really a big shock that he didn’t make it on the AFC’s list of eligible players. Awesome research, ESPN. And of course, Stafford is on the exact same poll for the NFC so maybe someone at ESPN was really pissed that he didn’t make it ahead of Eli Manning.
UPDATE: Well ESPN fixed the mistake and Stafford is not in the poll. It’s too bad those incompetent dumbasses cannot figure out which position Houston Texans LB Connor Barwin plays.
Yeah of course linebacker is the same as offensive lineman. Inexcusable mistakes.
