Kwon Ends The Season With A Bang & $32,000

January 28th, 2018

Leave it to Kwon Alexander to defy the unwritten rules of the Pro Bowl.

This afternoon in soggy Orlando, mighty 23-year-old Kwon, playing middle linebacker for the NFC, drilled Colts tight end Jack Doyle in the first quarter.

You’re sort of not supposed to do that in the Pro Bowl, where the hitting usually kicks in during the third and fourth quarters, when players get serious because the NFL payout to guys on winning teams is double the losers’ share.

Kwon’s hit got the crowd jacked up but he drew what appeared to be harsh words from a few AFC offensive players.

Soon after, a handful of seconds into the second quarter, Kwon drilled AFC returner Tyreek Hill while sprinting down the field on punt coverage in a driving rain storm. Hill fumbled and Kwon continued to set a no-prisoners tone. (See photo above and video below.)

Thankfully, Kwon came out of the game injury-free. He also led the losing NFC team in tackles and pocketed the losers share, $32,000.

Joe hopes Kwon’s teammates paid attention. One can only hope they follow Kwon’s example. That might be the fastest way for the Bucs to become the “badass” team Dirk Koetter desires.

    I love Kwon…I really his fighting spirit and I don’t give a sh!te attitude..I love when the announcer said” Kwon doesn’t know the Pro Bowl etiquette”..something like that..I LOVED it!!

    I just hope Bucs go ahead and give him his new contract because “other” teams notice this man quite a bit..

    We better hold on to him!!!!

    Don’t have Twitter, can’t watch post. I’m bummed. But WTH, I’m on my way to NOLA. I will have (4) Hurricanes for you Joe.

    Guess people will know his name NOW.

    I watched the game but missed that play, most of these guys win during the regular season so they’re out there to have fun not make a name for themselves. I did notice that Kwon still tends to guess what hole to take, whenever he guesses wrong there was a big play up the middle in the run game. I’m all for getting Bennett back in Tampa banking on Spence and getting interior help for McCoy like that Vita guy. Want my guys in the postseason more than in the probowl

    Kid made a third of my Entire year’s salary with his “losers share” in one week. ]

    Funny that the two to lead the NFC in Tackles were Kwon and Dion Jones, his teammate from LSU that he Begged us to draft.

    Kwon do care if it’s flag football or preseason!he hits everything that moves and today he proved why he’s amongst the best LBs in the league!we need more guys like him in the pro bowl that aren’t afraid to play,hit,or get hit!

    They make as much in one day as middle school teachers make in a year!!

    So unfair!

    Kwon had a heck of a game. I know it doesn’t mean anything, but he was flying all over the place. Maybe it’s just 1st time appearance inexperience coming through, but was enjoyable to watch.

    Right there with you mate. That’s a few k short my annual SGT/E5 pay

  13. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    Yesterday was my last time watching the Pro Bowl. The lack of tackling and the refs blowing the whistles before players were over was too much for me.

    Until they put something real on the line…like maybe the winning conference gets two roster spots on each team for winning…and until the voting process becomes more about production rather than popularity and fanbase…it simply is not worth watching or caring.

  14. Buccaneer Bonzai Says:

    “Apparently, Alexander is not familiar with Pro Bowl etiquette.”

    When I heard the announcer say that, I lost it. Heaven forbid he actually made a play.

    I’m sorry but did you even watch the game? Kwon barely hit Doyle. Linval Joseph is the one who smacked Doyle, Kwon barely even touched the guy. As for “drilling” Tyreek Hill? Apparently simply tackling someone from behind (not even head on) is “drilling” people these days.

  16. Garv Says:

    Kwon’s a good player. He’s a FOOTBALL players, no flag for him. Point is that the Pro Bowl is a useless waste of time risking injury to the NFL’s best players. Nonsense. As watchable as the Grammys, Oscars, Globes and curling. does anyone REALLY watch this “game?”

  17. Bucsfanman Says:

    @SB- A “third of your salary”?!!!!
    That’s exactly HALF my salary for the year!!!!!!! Wrong business, I suppose!
    Grain of salt: He looked good giving effort when others weren’t/
    I like Kwon but, he needs to work on his skills. Maybe with an improved d-line (cross fingers!), we’ll see some crazy LB play this season.
