  • Steven Jackson is sitting out the Pro Bowl

    to recover from his back injury. This isnt surprising really, he was clearly struggling late in the season. He has been replaced by Frank Gore

    Smart move. Just shows that he's committed to this team. There's no need to show off in the pro bowl and potentially hurt himself even more. I know it's an honorary thing for these guys to make the pro bowl and SJax deserves it but he's doing the right thing here. Good for you Steven.

      Still, at least he's Pro Bowl bound (but better than Peterson of course)

        Why the NFL continues to even have a game is beyond me. Elect the players to the "team" and be done with it. Why would any reasonable player risk his career over an exhibition game? Too much money at stake these days. It sucks, but that's the way it is.

            But wait, they've really improved things by putting it on the week before the Super Bowl! Brilliant move, and I'm sure all the Pro Bowlers from the NFC and AFC Champs will be there as a tune-up for the big dance!

            You're right RFRH, why they play this laughable "All-Star" games is a mystery. Elect the players and be done with it is right.

            Good move by Jackson to avoid it. The list of players doing the same is growing by the hour.

              For me, this just shows, and adds, to how much of a character change and leadership role he has taken upon himself throughout the season. Although he was injured, if it wasn't too serious, any other player would have gone to the pro bowl, enjoyed a nice day at the beach, while getting paid for a laid back football game, because he wouldn't need to take many reps. Steven took the smart route and began his healing process early, looking forward for next season, and I couldn't have asked for anything else.

                I totally agree. This isn't the girlie man's game of baseball ( that one's for you BigRedMan , my Rambrother... lol...) or even hoops where the risk of injury because you're playing with a bunch of guys you aren't in synch with is much lower.

                With the scheduling & now that the cheapskate billion-dollar NFL isn't even sending them to Hawaii, I think you'll see a lot more no-shows, thus making an already pretty silly event even more blah.

                  Re: Steven Jackson is sitting out the Pro Bowl

                  These are some of the players sitting out, that I have seen myself:

                  Tom Brady
                  Philip Rivers
                  Steven Jackson
                  Andre Gurode
                  Ben Roethlisberger
                  Larry Fitzgerald
                  Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie


                  Plus many more, I'm sure. I doubt many of the players who lose this weekend will want to come out and play in the pro bowl, and neither will any of the players who win.

                  Vince Young is now on the squad because of drop outs. Vince Young.

                    Just so you know, if a team reaches the Superbowl, none of its players will play in the Pro Bowl. So say the Vikings get in, all the players they have in the Pro Bowl will have to pull out.

                    This, along with the many injury drop outs, means that the Pro Bowl rosters will be a joke.

                    However, now that Andre Gurode is out with injury, and has been replaced by Jonathan Sullivan of the Saints, if the Saints get to the Superbowl i believe our very Jason Brown is next in line to play Center for the NFC Pro Bowl Team

                      Beach??? I thought I heard that this year's pro bowl is in Florida. It could be the change in venue and the timing of this Pro Bowl game that is causing some of the players to bow out.

                        This is indeed intriguing. Even if they lose, there's still a good chance that he doesn't want to immediately go to Florida and start practicing for the pro bowl. Keep us updated!

                          I want EVERY Ram named to the Pro Bowl.

                          I want NO Ram to play in the Pro Bowl.
                          The more things change, the more they stay the same.

                            Aww man. I was really looking forward to seeing him play. If its for the good of his own health though, then it is most definatly acceptable. Good luck Jaxx!

                              BREAKING NEWS: Due to an unusually high number of players pulling out of the game, the starting running back for the NFC will be Chris Ogbonnaya.
