David Jilting Appears CompleteJanuary 20th, 2014
If Derrick Brooks making the 2008 Pro Bowl and then quickly getting cut by the Bucs wasn’t enough proof that the game is a fraud, then Lavonte David getting denied his first taste of pineapple this season should have you convinced.
It seemed David’s only hope of getting his rightful place in Hawaii was if the 49ers got back to the Super Bowl.
In that case, Ahmad Brooks, the Niners outside linebacker, would have had to skip Sunday’s Pro Bowl and David might have gotten a shot as an alternate. But that didn’t happen. And it seems the other five outside linebackers chosen for the game within the Pro Bowl’s new format will all attend.
David’s jilting appears complete.
This all seems to fit nicely as the final chapter of a lost 2013 Bucs season, one that made no sense from the start of last offseason, when the New Schiano Order saw no use for its best pass rusher and run stuffer, who is now going to the Super Bowl.
Here’s your list of Pro Bowl outside linebackers: Feel free to vomit.
Tamba Hali, Chiefs
Robert Mathis, Colts
Terrell Suggs, Ravens
Justin Houston, Chiefs
Ahmad Brooks, 49ers
John Abraham, Cardinals
