Pro Bowl Voting Is Open

November 13th, 2018

Yes! Joe loves the Pro Bowl. Why? It’s football.

What fun it was last year with Kwon Alexander putting on a show with crushing hits in the rain that you’re sort of not supposed to deliver in the exhibition.

Fan voting is weighed with coaches and players votes to determine what players get in.

Others get the honor as alternates, as Kwon did last year when LB Bobby Wagner skipped the game for the NFC.

So have any Buccaneers earned your vote this year? You can vote as often as you like at, and today Joe voted for Jason Pierre-Paul, who is tied for fourth in the NFC in sacks with eight.

Mike Evans got Joe’s vote, too. It hasn’t been Evans’ best season, but it still could be. He’s done a lot of great things and ranks eighth in the NFL in total receiving yards.

Will Gerald McCoy make his seventh consecutive Pro Bowl? His NFC teammates named him Pro Bowl captain last year.

The Pro Bowl is Sunday, January 27, in Orlando.

    Invisible player with 6 straight Pro Bowls? Unreal! Now, that’s a voting conspiracy right there!

  2. WalkdaPlank Says:

    How Gerald McCoy made 6 Pro Bowls will be covered in some 30-for-30 sports history episode 20 years from now.

    Classic example of why the Pro Bowl is a joke

  3. Ray Rice Says:


    Well played my friend. Well played. LOL … That weak MF! LOL! You mean to tell me you didn’t vote for Geraldine McBooty. I mean he has to get in. He gets quadruple teamed every play. Only if he had some help on the edge. Everyone would see what I’m talking about. LOL

  4. Mike Johnson Says:

    It may be time for GMC to go. But at least 5 of his pro-bowls were well deserved for a fact. I know this is a..What have you done for me lately business, But GMC played well for us for quite a few years. Especailly during those losing seasons. I wish the guy well. Injuries have sort of taken over his playing days. He still can play. And he’s gonna give some team a boost. Just not us.

  5. Bucsfanman Says:

    Evans and JPP. That’s about it. No defender outside of JPP deserves this honor AND you could make the case that NO defender on the last ranked defense 3 years and counting (!) deserves the honor.

  6. Knoxville Buc Fan Says:

    Horse teeth looking MF’R

  7. TOM Says:

    JPP yes. M Evans not so sure. Maybe OJ Howard

  8. ChanEpic Says:

    I’d say JPP for sure. Evans should be perennially picked and OJ most def needs to get some love.

  9. Architek Says:

    Man please……

  10. Evolvingbucsfan Says:

    M Evans, JPP, and maybe, O.J. Howard.

    mccoy is the sidd finch of the nfl


  12. Easy Says:

    Only Bucs deserving of the pro bowls are OJ and JPP.

  13. Ludicrous Speed Says:

    Well, color me surprised. How could the so-called “Pro Bowler Jameis Winston” have missed getting Joe’s vote if he indeed believes that’s what he is? Was it a hanging chad?

    Or is it because he is neither now, nor ever was a true Pro Bowler? After all, it only took 5 QBs turning down the honor for him for him to wind up there back in 2016.

    SIXTH Alternate, high praise indeed. Yes, that was the same contest that also gave us Pro Bowler Tyrod Taylor. You can’t say he doesn’t deserve that moniker every bit as much as Tampa’s own, Der Wunderkind.

    But actually he didn’t even deserve 6th alternate. Kirk Cousins totally outclassed him that year, but went under appreciated. Still, he was much better in every category that mattered: more passing yards than Winston (4,166 to 4,042), a higher completion percentage (69.8 percent compared to 58.3), more passing touchdowns (29 to 22), fewer interceptions (11 to 15) and a higher quarterback rating (101.6 to 84.2). Most importantly he led his team to 9 wins and a Division Championship, whereas Winston ended up with a double-digit loss season.

    The ONLY reason he was able to snag that “coveted” 6th Alternate spot over a much better performing player… was because he was the #1 Draft Pick the previous Spring, coming into the NFL with much more fanfare than did Cousins, the fact that Winston (at that time) was the bigger name. In other words, pretty much the same reason that there remains a small, local (NOT national) faction of followers still enthralled with him, some even willing to confer upon him his nom de guerre.

    Yes, Pro Bowler Tyrod Taylor and Pro Bowler Jameis Winston. Between them you’ve got a couple of backup-quality quarterbacks.

    oj howard is built like a stan lee superhero


  15. Wesley Says:

    Humphries is our only pro bowler and maybe JPP, Evans.

  16. Joe Blahak Says:

    Pro Bowl is a joke…Any player that mentions Pro Bowls without declaring a wish to win a Suoer Bowl is a downright fraudulent pro player. The next regime here needs to sift out the “money players” vs. “dedicated to the game players”, if such players exist anymore. Bednarik is rolling over in his grave….

  17. Robert Says:

    JPP is the only one even in the conversation

  18. OneBucPerson Says:

    Y’all better vote for JPP, if there is anyone on this team who deserves a Pro Bowl nod it’s him.

  19. Eric Says:

    I’m sure I read that Gerald would be in the running for Defensive Player of the Year honors.

    According to our super fabulous dline coach.

  20. chargedcbh Says:

    WHO CARES…..

  21. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ what he said.

  22. DaPostman Says:

    I wonder how many votes Brenda Snipes will get?

  23. stvcl Says:

    I chuffed when I saw this pic and probowl together and under my breath said: ” GTFOH.”

  24. tmaxcon Says:

    when you are as dysfunctional as the bucs and are about to set the all time records for the worst defense of all time, no one deserves to be an usher at pro bowl much less participant.

  25. Robert Says:

    @ DaPostman


    prolly bout 2k

  26. JimmyJack Says:

    I’m sick of seeing McCoys picture. Just want him out of my face.

    Last week was a game the I would love to expect great things from(game changing……game shattering) but he is already 2-5 years past those expectations.

    Such a shame that as long as he’s been here he has never once met those expectations.

    But he’s a Buc I’ll vote for him cause I know it makes him happy.

  27. Lord Cornelius Says:

    No one on this team deserves it at this point.

    Maybe ME. OJ would if they used him as they should instead of limiting him to 3-4 targets too often. F*ck.

  28. Buc407 Says:

    Only mike Evans and jpp deserve it

  29. 813bucboi Says:


    but i wouldnt vote for anyone…..


  30. Doctor_berto Says:

    JPP and OJ, thats it. Evans has some of the worst hands I’ve seen.

  31. stpetebucsfan Says:

    I absolutely cannot get excited about an exhibition game…it’s not real football…they try NOT to hit. LOL

    But I especially do not care about player honors when we have a team of chokers….er have a lack of concentration.

    Our team does have some talent…alas none of it’s above the ears or in the chest cavity. When you have a group of heartless folks who don’t even take the time to pay attention when they’re out on the field….well just say there should be special awards for them.

  32. JimmyJack Says:

    I predict Santos will be pro-bowl kicker this time next year

  33. WalkdaPlank Says:

    “Evans has some of the worst hands I’ve seen.”

    You sir are blind

  34. Tampa Bay Demon Says:

    ^^ haha, no doubt. He hasn’t had the best couple of games, but Evans still kicks total ass and yes normally has a very reliable and great set of hands.

  35. Buc50 Says:

    Evans, JPP and OJ are the only players that should get any votes this year.

  36. El Buco Realisto Says:

    Wait a second!!!!! I thought the sheep said that Jason licht “did his job”!!!!!!! The sheep said that the defense had all this talent!!!!!!! LoL!!!!!! Exposed again!!!!!!!!!! I tried to tell the sheep once again!!!!!!!!!!!

    Its the ole “Realist Repost”!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    “This D-line was built for immediate high-performance.”

    Was it?????? 2 salary cut casualties and 3rd round draft pick trade and some expect “immediate high-performance”???????? We “real” fans think while it was upgraded, this is not a finish product!!!!! Its a work in progress!!!!!! And to think other wise is foolish!!!!!!!!!! or has an agenda against a certain coach??????

  37. Bucs Fan #7423 Says:

    Look at that big fat softie, he look so happy. Just finished eating a bowl of ice cream

  38. HeavyE Says:

    I voted for #14, he makes everyone play better!!! According to this Bucs fan base! & the players play harder for him….. SMH.

  39. jerseybuc Says:

    All Buc defensive players should be ineligible for the Pro Bowl in the year they set a record for defensive futility. As if it is a possibility…..come on Joe.

  40. Defense Rules Says:

    GMC hasn’t really done anything so far this year to warrant Pro Bowl selection. In the 7 games he’s played in this year, McCoy has 3 sacks, 12 QB hits, 3 TFL, 5 solo tackles, 8 tackle assists. VERY unimpressive for a guy making what, $13 mil this year? Carl Nassib (making $900K) has 4 sacks, 7 QB hits, 7 TFL, 9 solo tackles & 4 tackle assists in his 9 games. I’ll be very surprised if GMC doesn’t end up being a CAP casualty at the end of this year. His CAP hit alone is enough to ‘fund’ 2 quality FAs to replace him.

  41. Buc believer Says:

    Batman is like having the zit that will never go away… pop it and pick it all you want but it’s still there. My God I can’t wait till this career loser just goes away.

  42. Bucnjim Says:

    The pro bowl is like politics. You vote for the players you want and the rest is only about name recognition. Since McCoy is best at finding the camera his name comes up a lot and it isn’t for his play on the field. More likely the outrageous outfits he wears before games.

  43. Bucnjim Says:

    He will have a great career in acting right after he appears on Dancing with the stars. New MTV series Money for nothing checks for free!

  44. firethecannons Says:

    will vote for jpp maybe OJ even Hump but NOT Evans NOT GMC the effort, breakout etc is gone/missing

  45. Dooshlarue Says:

    If you don’t vote for Jameis then you must be racist.

  46. Knack2Babbyyyy Says:

    Jason Pierre-Paul, O.J. Howard, and Mike Evans get my vote.

  47. unbelievable Says:

    JPP and OJ Howard are the only ones who deserve it from this team.

  48. unbelievable Says:

    Maybe Hump too.

    Not GMC or Evans though.

  49. Drew martin Says:

    I gave the first three years . after that im going to hold you accountable Geraldini. There is no way you deserve the money your getting we had the two worst defense with him in there. He is the reason we have the worst defense the league again. People say he gets double teamed. it because the O-line put all of them to same spot. There should be no way he makes the pro-bowl after this year. If he does its a conspiracy.
