Three Packers Make Pro Bowl, Including a Non-Starter

Aaron Rodgers vs. New Orleans

As if the Pro Bowl couldn’t be anymore of a joke. Three Green Bay Packers were elected to the all-star game no one cares about, including center Jeff Saturday, who was benched by the Packers last week.

Saturday will be joined by quarterback Aaron Rodgers and linebacker Clay Matthews. Rodgers is the only starter of the group.

If anyone on the Packers got overlooked it had to be Randall Cobb. It would be tough to argue Cobb deserved to go as a receiver, especially when you look at the guys who did make the team — Calvin Johnson, Brandon Marshall, Julio Jones and Victor Cruz.

However, Cobb could have made it as a return man, where Seattle’s Leon Washington got the nod. Voters, which include fans, players and coaches, would have had to look at Cobb’s all-around impact and not just his return ability.

Washington is averaging 30.1 yards per kick return to Cobb’s 25.4. Cobb is better on punts, with a 9.4 average. Washington averages 8.6.

Where it’s a total whitewash is in yards from scrimmage. Cobb has 1,086 this season and Washington only has 114.

But that apparently doesn’t matter.

Here’s the full roster.

    Glad to see Saturday make it! Really shows off the validity of the pro bowl. Woodson plays in what 5 games? Get rid of this fucking joke! Name an all pro team and call it good.

    It once mattered to me, back in the 70’s, when the packers sucked, and I loved ANY national attention the packers got, even a Monday Night Football highlight for a few seconds. Thank God things are so much different, (but I do miss the old days, in a weird way).

    How could the league leader in TDs, James Jones and Randall Cobb get so over looked. The pro bowl keeps becoming more and more of a joke every year.

    I got half way through pro bowl voting to the WR position and i could find cobb on the list. I sorted by packers players and it didnt show him, I could vote for jennings but not cobb. Closed the window. fuckin joke

    Hopefully, none of these guys will be playing in the Pro Bowl because they’ll be too busy getting ready for the Super Bowl.
