    Pro-Bowl Thoughts

    Why was Marc Bulger not in this game? Does anybody else think the man would've done a lot better than McNabb and Culpepper? Torry Holt had a very good game. It was kinda funny to see Vick rifle the one into the endzone, hit him in the face and almost knock him down. Pace played pretty well going against Jason Taylor from what I saw. It looked like a lot of the pressure was coming from the left...or Walter Jones and Steve Hutchinson's side.

    I didn't really get into the game much. Last years Pro-Bowl was much better in my opinion. Not a bad game for the last one I'll see in awhile I suppose. :disappoin

    Torry should be MVP.

    I didn't watch the whole thing, but these game stats are ridiculous. McNabb, 1/8 and an interception? Peyton completed six of ten passes, and three were touchdowns? Holt had as good a day as anyone on the NFC side of the ball.

    I know he is our guy as of now , but why would Bulger do any better? With the looks of that line , he might had lost his Career in that game! He ain't no super hero! :redface:

    Re: Pro-Bowl Thoughts

    There's no question that Bulger could have played better than McNabb and Culpepper, however, some QB's are great in their own system, but perhaps can't just step into another system and play well. Vick got to play in his own system, since Jim Mora was the coach, and he looked pretty good. (I bet he wishes he had Holt on his team!!)

    But it is impressive when a Manning, or even Bulger last year, can step in and play well with just a few practices with new players and system. I think it says a lot for Bulger.

    But at 8-8 and not a good TD/INT ratio, that is why Bulger was not there....Unfortunately.

    A vote from the heart that can be understood. However, my vote would have gone to Hines Ward. 2 TD's with one on ST.

    Bulger's injury hurt his chances of getting in. Culpepper had a really good season that was dwarfed by Peyton, McNabb is a Pro Bowl institution for some reason, and Vick is the NFL's marketing baby. Last year Bulger was only an injury replacement for Favre(?).

    Re: Pro-Bowl Thoughts

    I understand that wanting Bulger in the pro-bowl is hard to resist as a Rams fan but the guy that I think got cheated was Brian Griese. I'm no Griese supporter but he had a better year than Bulger and a lot better year than Vick. His stat's are actually really impressive considering he was in a new system on a struggling team.

    Griese: 11 g 97.5 rating 69.3 % comp 20 td 12 int
    Bulger: 14 g 93.7 rating 66.2 % comp 21 td 14 int
    Vick: 15 g 78.1 rating 56.4 % comp 14 td 12 int

    Gee, you'd never guess that the NFC coach was Vick's coach would you?

    Griese did have a good year, and yet might not even be with the Bucs next season because of contract problems - I believe he's due a large bonus and the Bucs don't want to pay. It's always interesting how that works out.

    I thought it was Hasselbeck.

    Marc Bulger should have been in the Pro Bowl. I agree with you guys with regard to Griese also. I was saying yesterday that it should've been Culpepper, Bulger and Griese starting for the NFC.

    Michael Vick is great for his team and all but I don't think he had a Pro Bowl calliber year. If we're gonna let this guy in for having an average season, why don't we jsut give him an annual pass?

    MVP is determined by team success. Pro Bowl should be determined by individual success, and I'll take Marc Bulger's performance over 14 games last year over Vick's performance in the whole season any day.

    Re: Pro-Bowl Thoughts

    Being named to the Pro-Bowl is great, having to participate in it is another story. I saw one play while channel surfing, it was a field goal where during the attempt, everyone on the line just kind of stood up and watched. That pretty much sums up what the Pro-Bowl is all about.

    I heard someone say they might as well just play flag football, which would not only showcase much more skill and effort, but be much more entertaining.

    Interestingly enough, the last really big injury that happened at the Pro Bowl was during a flag football game that is no longer held.

    I remember it was an up and coming running back from New England but I can't remember his name now. Anyway, I think the injury was more directly related to the game being played in the sand than the fact that it was flag football.
