I like Reshad Jones, I really do.
But the fact that he didn’t make the Pro Bowl is not a surprise to me, although it will shock many of our readers. I predicted it last week. when Jones fumbled after he made a nice interception. I called it right then and there.
Now I’m not saying that the fumble kept him out of Honolulu, but it sure didn’t help. Besides, the way these things work is that playoff teams won’t be able to send their Pro Bowlers to the game, so that means Reshad will probably get in as a reserve.
Sorry to the more fervent Jones supporters who read our blog, but I think he had some great moments this year, but nothing consistent enough to get him to the Pro Bowl. I was hoping I’d be wrong.
Is it a snub? i would say so yes. I think Reshad should be in, but all I’m saying is that I’m not surprised to find him outside looking in.
But Mike Pouncey’s selection remains a mystery. I’ve watched every single Dolphins’ down for the past number of years, and some games I watch repeatedly as I’m writing my blog entries. I cannot remember a single time that Mike Pouncey threw a devastating block. not a one. His peers must see something great in him because he gets chosen every year.
Ryan Tannehill made the Pro Bowl as the first stringer and…yeah. we all love a good joke.
The Dolphins linebackers all…okay, we’re done now.
Luckily, Cheap Trick got elected into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame last week. At least voters got something right.
