Congrats to them. D. Adams, K. Clark, D. Bakhtiari and A. Jones are my Packers choices for the Pro Bowl.

You pretty much nailed the guys who deserved it. I'll tell you who shouldn't be there? Aaron Rodgers, that's a joke! In fact, I can't believe I'm even saying it, I've been such a huge fan of his, but the dude is playing like a 2nd string QB.

I would add linsley to the list of deserving.

Statistically, he's been good...not great, but good. His inability to lead the offense has been alarming.

My suggestion has been to name the team, but don’t actually play the game. Either too risky or too much like the NBA All-Star game.

Agree completely TK. The game is a complete joke and an embarrassment for the NFL. Thanks, Since '61

I haven't watched an All-Star game of any major league for years. Sometimes the 'skills competitions' are worth a look, but the games themselves are awful.

Bingo!

Most of the primary players named will drop out anyway.

Just let it go...

Adams yes. Rodgers No.

Respect to you, sir.

Honestly, I was shocked to hear Aaron Rodgers made it. 50 throwaways is not Penske material in my book. Adams, Clark, Linsley and Bahk deserve to go. By Rodgers past standards to this season? No effin way.

PLUS, the whole thing is a slap in the face to Boyle and Kumerow.

LeotisHarris's picture

No kidding! A lot of people are saying when Boyle found out Rodgers was named to the Pro Bowl and he wasn't, he had that look George "The Animal" Steele used to have when he looked around the arena.

Make no mistake, this snub of Boyle will awaken a sleeping giant *and* unleash the kraken.

Have you ever seen a kraken “go to work” on a turnbuckle?
Shred city.
Fury personified.

Rodgers making it just goes to show what a joke the Pro Bowl is. He didn’t play good enough to keep McCarthy around, but he’s good enough for the Pro Bowl? C’mon, man!

Rodgers should have made the Toilet Bowl!

Rodgers and Adams selection for the Pro Bowl makes sense. They are the only 2 players we have. Bak would make sense as well. Clark as an alternate sounds right. Linsley is borderline but I'm happy that he is receiving some recognition as well. Thanks, Since '61

Rodgers’ big accomplishment this season was the passes w/o an interception record. Kind of like Favre’s consecutive games record. I’d rather we just had more wins, especially against the Queens and the Bears.

That was nice how they brought up the 400 consecutive interception free throws then Rodgers promptly throws a pick 2 plays after the graphic was put up about the 400. very fitting.

Oppy's picture

It is immaterial who the best players the Packers have- the pro bowl is supposed to be a selection of the top players at a given position in the league.

Adams is arguably a top five WR this season. Rodgers was not a top QB in 2018.

Should have been, Adams, Clark, Bahk.

HankScorpio's picture

Those 3 have been the 3 Packers to play at a high level on the most consistent basis. I don't know enough about the guys that made it ahead of Clark and Bakh to say whether those two were screwed over. But I do know both of them are quite worthy of being named Pro Bowlers.

The NFL is so reliant on "Stars". They try to make decent players into stars, and they continue to rave about Rodgers, even though his play this year was pedestrian. I really believe part of Rodgers problem is that he believes his press clippings. I hope our next Coach will show him the many ways he is actually hurting the offense/team. *Failure to take checkdowns *terrible body language * Poor footwork, inaccuracy, to name a few.

Why. ..Rodgers sucked

Lare's picture

Apparently, everyone else involved in the process disagrees with you.

Oppy's picture

The pro bowl is a joke because of the fan vote.
Rodgers wont be getting an all-pro nod this year.

egbertsouse's picture

Rodgers!!! Over Brees and Goff? Someone needs to be drug tested, and I don’t mean Eric Reed.

CAG123's picture

It might be you because they both made it in as well besides who else in the NFC is there?

Bo Hunter's picture

Alexander should have made it before 12, not saying he deserved it but he outplayed 12.
Thanks, Bo Hunter

Jaire is a better QB than Aaron?
