Super Bowls > Pro Bowls

July 15th, 2021

All is well.

Never fear, Tom Brady is here!

Remember last year when Bucs linebacker Devin White was peeved he didn’t make the Pro Bowl?

The guy who basically told him to get his head straight because the only bowl that mattered was the Super Bowl was park-violating, home-invading, NFLPA-ignoring, down-forgetting, handshake-stiffing, jet-ski-losing, biscuit-baking, tequila-shooting, smartphone-phobic, waffle-grilling, trophy-throwing, roller-coaster-scared, numbers-rules-peeved, Bucs-Super-Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady.

Well, get used to it, writes Dan Hanzus of Bucs offensive players likely won’t rack up Pro Bowl numbers because of Brady. But what the Bucs should rack up is rings because of Brady.

…You can get cute with this exercise and pick one of the talented playmakers that surround the QB – Chris Godwin, Antonio Brown, Mike Evans, Gronk, et al. — but it’s more likely Brady distributes the ball in a way that keeps everyone happy even if it doesn’t lead to All-Pro level statistical output for any one player. The Bucs are locked and loaded for another championship push, and it’s the old man out front. End of story.

Barring injuries, Joe doesn’t know how any defense is going to stop the Bucs without gifts from officials. Maybe the slimy Saints because Marshon Lattimore can be Mike Evans’ kryptonite.

But remember, Antonio Brown wasn’t yet fully involved when the Saints beat down the Bucs on Sunday Night Football, and was hurt in the playoff win over the slimy Saints.

Los Angeles and Washington had the best defenses in the league last year and the Bucs put up 24 and 31 points on them, respectively.

    Just like when TB12 consoled Devin White after his Pro Bowl snub telling him we are focused on other bowls/things/rings. And boy did they deliver. The Pro Bowl suddenly makes preseason look more legit/exciting by comparison these days. To play in it…it means you’re not in the Super Bowl.

    Only cared about pro bowls in the lost decade. Now that we are out of that sheet hole who cares about pro bowls. It’s all about Super Bowls baby

    I recall the words of Ronde after his legendary pick-6: “pro-bowl, my ass, I’m going to the Superbowl”.

    This made me think Lavonte. So Kuechly has the pro bowls but Lavonte has the ring and no one can change that.

    Individual accolades in TEAM sports are meaningless without the trophy, IMO. Never mind the fact that Pro Bowl voting is just a popularity contest anyways.

    Aren’t bonuses given for in some contracts if selected as an All Pro. If so, then it matters to some players.

    next time someone complains about the pro bowl remind them that Obama was gifted the Motel Peace Prize. Hell, I STILL don’t know what the Hell that was all about
