You cannot be serious!

Is this for real? I guess it is. It was published in a major newspaper after all, so I guess it has to be. That's unfortunate, because it boggles the mind and I don't need a mind boggler right after lunch.

This will be John Lynch's 4th consecutive undeserving pro-bowl nod. At this point in his career, he's nothing more than a name and apparently that's all you need. Isn't it curious that a guy that missed three games, had only 59 tackles, one sack and zero INT's is in the pro-bowl? What exactly put him over the top? Was it his telegenic features, his hot wife or his charity work? It certainly wasn't his play on the field.

Does anyone out there actually think that Lynch is still good? Am I way off base about how poorly this guy has played the last few years? I'm really really having a hard time understanding this.

Something needs to be done about how pro bowlers are decided.

Somehow, Troy Polamalu made the Pro Bowl even though he was injured for much of the season, and when he did play, he was a shadow of his usual self. Strange.

I thought I'd pop over after seeing your "Lank Thompson" comment on the KSK blog. I haven't thought about that character in ages...thanks for the laugh!

Thanks for stopping by. Always need more readers.

Remember Tim Meadows' spin on it? "I'm a handsome black man"
