Seven Packers Players Named to 2020 Pro Bowl

Packers Players are finally getting the recognition they deserve.

The NFL announced their Pro Bowl rosters tonight and seven Packers were named to the team, six as starters.

Aaron Rodgers was named to his 9th Pro Bowl. He is now tied with Forrest Gregg and Brett Favre for the most Pro Bowls as a Packer.

David Bakhtiari  was named for the second straight year and third in total.

Davante Adams will make his fourth straight Pro Bowl appearance.

Za'Darius Smith was an alternate in 2019 and makes it as a starter in 2020.

Aaron Jones was named to his first Pro Bowl and is the only Packer named as an alternate together with Alvin Kamarra (Dalvin Cook is the starter).

Jaire Alexander was named to his first Pro Bowl.

Elgton Jenkins was named to his first Pro Bowl (as a guard).

 

The total of seven Packers is the most since Vince Lombardi's last year coaching the Packers.

Good to see numerous Packers getting some recognition. Hopefully they won’t be able to play in the pointless Pro-bowl because they will be preparing for the SB.

Congratulations to the Packer players who earned the recognition. Good job. Thanks, Since ‘61

There is no game this year. No pro bowlers will get on any field and play.

After the Steelers losing to the Bengals, the Rams losing to the Jets, and the Saints losing to the Eagles, it's perspective on just how amazing the Packers have been to go 11-3 this season, after 13-3 last season (plus a win in the playoffs before exiting).
Still doesn't mean we should let poor play just slide without concern or comment, but it is good to appreciate this remarkable feat of stellar accomplishment (especially after where the team was three season ago).
May the Packers use the examples of the stunning upsets listed above to keep striving for improvement in a commitment to excellence.
That's all I would ask -- although I hope that they go for the Super Bowl championship this season,, a goal seemingly within reach.
We have already attained an impressive level, and it could be a lot of fun to observe the efforts to progress even higher.
Go Pack!!!

Yes, he probably had a case but only because the NFC doesn't have any really good TEs since Kittle got injured. Kittle's 6 game stats stack up pretty well. There are at least 6 TEs better than Tonyan in the AFC.

I will say that Evan Engram did not deserve a pro bowl nod. It helps to play in New York.

NY is a detriment to player recognition the past few yrs. Engram is a frustrating player to watch because of his mixture good and bad play. Name recognition is important to all pro and Tonyan has little for the time being. While on the subject , I was watching the last Raider game and was shocked at how poor of a blocker Waller is.

Job well done boys. Like the Lombardi 1960’s reference. That means GB has a solid team.

It is especially great to see Jaire, Elgton, and Aaron Jones named for for the first time.

This is further evidence of TT's and Gute's excellent work over the years.

ALL 7 players are very much deserving and I don't mean to be greedy, BUT how about Corey Lindsey?

He's been the #1 Center by PFF all season IIRC yet he's snubbed.

We're not done yet...Lets add #14 to the Trophy Case.

Jaire's pro bowl award by rule will increase his 5th year option salary by $2.97M. Yes, GB will extend Jaire, but that extra $2.97M (From $9.89M to $12.879M) will get factored in to any extension.

We have one more year to make that payout and cut some fat. King is the immediate decision.

Did Ngaoke make it to the Pro Bowl? If he made it, the vikings draft supposedly gets screwed up, a bit.

Looks like Gute hit a grand slam with the Jenkins pick: Pro Bowler in his second season and can play anywhere along line--couldn't ask for much more.

Now what I'm hoping for with the next guard pick is someone obviously with adequate pass protection skills, but especially someone who can get a good push upfront. We need to be better in short yardage, and having to often throw for it is a nagging concern for this offense. Both FBs are out, so that doesn't help, either.
