Pro Bowl: Garett Bolles gets stiffed while Bradley Chubb wins the lottery

The pro bowl has always been a joke to many of us who pay close attention to the game. As a fan it still irks me when the voters get it wrong.

Garett Bolles got hosed. He’s been hands-down the best lineman on the Broncos this season. I can’t remember a game this season that he stood out to me as having a “bad game.” He’s been killing it and earned a new contract with the Broncos and it is a crying shame he didn’t get voted into the pro bowl.

On the other side of the coin, you have Bradley Chubb who is currently in a 5-way tie for most sacks in the AFC with 7.5 on the season. 7.5 is solid. I’m just not sure that’s a vote I’d cast for the pro bowl in the edge rusher position.

But hey, these things hardly ever make sense anyway right?
