Pro Bowl technicality question
I have a Pro Bowl technicality question.
Voted as the starters for the Pro Bowl this past season were.....
Brady and Palmer did not participate in the Pro Bowl due to injury.
Do they still get credit for a Pro Bowl? Is Tom Brady now a 3-time Pro Bowler (he had two before right?)?
So I guess the big question is........
Does one have to be ASKED to join the Pro Bowl team to get credit for being a Pro Bowler, or does one have to PARTICIPATE in the Pro Bowl to get credit?
If one must participate in the Pro Bowl, then it will be weird looking back and seeing Steve McNair as a Pro Bowl QB in 2005 and not Brady, Palmer, Plummer, etc.
And if one just has to be asked to go to the Pro Bowl to join, well, then it is funny how the AFC has 8 Pro Bowl QBs.........
1. Peyton Manning
2. Tom Brady (injured)
3. Carson Palmer (injured)
4. Drew Brees (would have replaced Palmer, but he got injured himself)
5. Jake Plummer (Palmer/Brees replacement, but then withdrew)
6. Trent Green (Plamer/Brees/Plummer replacement)
7. Ben Roethlisberger (Brady replacement, but rumored to turn down PB for Grammy's)
8. Steve McNair (Brady/Roethlisberger replacement)
....with 16 teams in the AFC, we weren't too far from having David Carr in the Pro Bowl
If your voted on, you are a Pro-Bowler whether you show up or not. I don't think you are an official Pro-Bowler if you are named as a replacement and opt not to show for the game in Hawaii.
Brady is a 3 time pro bowler.... Dan Marino was listed as a 13 time pro bowler, but only played in 3 I think...
So then Bruschi technically isn't considered a Pro Bowler?
No if your a inj replacement and play your a pro bowler, but if your say like Dillion who a inj replacement but did not play was not considered a pro bowler
