    Chris Long Pro Bowl

    Hey guys I just wanted to start campaigning early to get Long voted into the pro bowl. He has the third most sacks in the NFC as far as DE's go and he really does deserve it. Let's get the kid his first guys.

    Re: Chris Long Pro Bowl

    Rams need to start getting some more wins so that our stars can get some recognition. Until then, the only votes for him will come from Ram fans. I remember all those threads about Chris Long being a bust...

    I agree. An absolute non stop motor. Just a beast all around. I'd love to have 11 Chris Long's on any side of the ball. Disciplined, smart, great work ethic, class act, strong, quick, a man amongst boys, and a terrific player.

    Re: Chris Long Pro Bowl

    Long has my vote, the only bad thing is we won't get a lot of attention from other voters. Remember, Donnie Jones was NO DOUBT the best punter in the league several times, but since it was on a bad team they would send somebody like the Cowboys punter.

    It's not always the best playes who make the Pro Bowl... it's the really good players on the best teams, or it's the most popular players who are playing well.

    Thats why the pro-bowl means nothing. Its a popularity contest. Isaac Bruce said it best. When he didn't get voted in 1 year (I forget which) he totally lost all respect for the pro bowl, because he was easily the best WR in the league that year.

    Re: Chris Long Pro Bowl

    Pro Bowl is a joke. Used to be cool years ago and taken more seriously in terms of it being an honor to play. Now, guys pass on the opportunity. Even so, it would be nice to see Chris Long be recognized- I think he has to keep having a good season; can't rest on his laurels just yet, especially on a 2-7 team. Jared Allen is a shoo-in with 13.5 sacks and a great reputation and you figure Julius Peppers will go (don't know his stats this year, but has been great in the past). We'll see.

    Really, really happy to see Chris Long start to elevate his game, help us out and silence the doubters.

    Allen, JPP, and Babin are the only NFC DEs with more sacks.

    And that certainly puts Chris is some very select company. He'll be going up against Carpenter of the SeaHags this Sunsday; here's hoping he adds 2 or 3 more sacks to his total!!

    To me, this shows me exactly why you don't say someone is a bust because they don't blow the world up in their second year.

    Hopefully. James Carpenter is on and off, he has some rough moments and some good ones. Here's to Chris Long making him look like Charles Brown.

    I cursed him with my voodoo withcraft.


    But seriously, this is good news. Hope Carpenter recovers, but Chris Long's day just got better.
