Another Buccaneer Assured Of Pineapple

January 14th, 2013

Gerald McCoy will have company in Hawaii when Pro Bowl festivities begin next Monday in advance of the Jan. 27 game.

With the 49ers and Falcons making the NFC Championship game, that means either Pro Bowl alternate Doug Martin or Vincent Jackson will join McCoy in playing for the NFC. Scott Smith, of, delivered the news.

If San Francisco wins the NFC Championship Game, then 49ers RB Frank Gore will pull out of the Pro Bowl and that will create a spot for Martin.  If Atlanta wins, then Falcons WR Julio Jones will pull out of the Pro Bowl and that will create a spot for Jackson.

If Martin ends up in the Pro Bowl, that might be enough to get Joe to watch.

    I don’t know why fans get excited/pumped up about the Pro Bowl. I understand the players liking it (week in Hawaii, pay bonus). Its a great accomplishment they can put on their resume.

    But as a fan I dont want to see any of the Bucs in this game. Im aware the game is a glorified flag football game but god forbid someone gets hurt. Especially one of our best players.

    Dougie gets in b/c Falcons have NO pass rush.

    One more reason to root for the 49ers this weekend

    If San Fran wins, Ronde is in as well. He is the second alternate and San Fran has Goldson and Whitner

    didn’t I read 3-4 weeks ago that Ronde was named a starter at safety? Can’t remember if it was on here or somewhere else?

  7. Macabee Says:


    You may be right, but I think the alternates are elected to a specific position. Donte Whitner is a Strong Safety. Ronde is a second alternate at Free Safety. Like I said, I don’t know for sure. I hope you’re right!

    Good for Gerald.

    Maybe Freeman can get his sh!t together and save his Tampa Bay career with a probowl selection next year?
