AFC or NFC doesn't matter in the pro bowl anymore, the coaches select the players

Deion sanders and Michael Irvin both selected saints for their respective teams last year.

Playing fantasy, TE was a pretty crap year. No one really did much. So I guess I can see why Graham got in but Evans..come on now.

No saints deserved to go. Besides I hate the Pro Bowl. It's a waste of time.

Thank you for saying it. I'm glad somebody did. As bad as Brown and DeLapuenta were last season Goodwin was worse than both combined.

Maybe the injury did take away his effectiveness. I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt.

I understand he was hurt but he is not Brees. We should not have to sacrifice a season because he is not fully healthy. Since when did Graham become our key to winning? He still is nothing like Gronkowski.

Re: New Orleans Saints' Jimmy Graham, Jahri Evans invited to NFL Pro Bowl

neither played at a pro bowl level this year. they need to go back to weighing the player and coaches in put heavier like in years past. this making it appealing to masses ideology the NFL has adopted is killing the game.

Are we sure this is the NFL pro bowl and not the whiff and drop pro bowl?
