Unpopular Newton got rough treatment from others at Pro Bowl

The intensity immediately caught my eye. Pro Bowls aren't known for rushing the passer or trying to get the quarterback down -- especially not the 2012 version -- but there was no denying that the AFC players went hard after Carolina quarterback Cam Newton late in last year's game.

The only sack of the game came against Newton, as did most of the pressure. All the other quarterbacks sat back, no intensity with the pass rush, and completed pass after pass. Players did the tap-and-stand moves on the line with the other five quarterbacks in the game.

Yeah, well Cam-diva Newton shouldn't of been there in the first place. If they woulda' sent Matt Stafford like they should have, we wouldn't be reading about this kind of stuff ... and WTF Prisco? Weren't the deadlines for ProBowl stories 10 months ago?

When asked, players said really? It was all a haze.

I, too was shocked that stafford wasn't voted in. He was my starting fantasy qb last year, so I know the monster numbers he put up.. just goes to show you that the whole game is a political sham

The "popularity" bowl is a joke anyway.

Gee Pete, run out of things to write about?

Had to reach back an entire year for content?
