Sherman did not make the Pro bowl
Wed Dec 26, 2012 2:44 pm
  • Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer
    Richard Sherman did not make the Pro Bowl, per sources, but I'm told the PED rules are not relevant in this case.

    Albert Breer ‏@AlbertBreer
    To be clear, all I'm saying on Sherman is that the PED rule on Pro Bowl berths didn't apply to him. Voters may have used it as a reason.


    Chris Mortensen ‏@mortreport
    Richard Sherman does not make Pro Bowl. No decision on PED appeal but PED violation makes players ineligible for Pro Bowl

  • No surprise. Offensive players don't like him.

    I'll bet you that chip on his shoulder just doubled in size, though.

  • Well, his results show on the field...probowl or no he's one of the top 2-3 corners in the entire NFL. It'll be great when he's voted as an All-Pro without making the Pro Bowl.

  • It's obvious that the PED accusation is to blame here, not a snubbing of his talent. I wouldn't be surprised if voters, assuming he was ineligible, simply chose to vote elsewhere for that reason.

    Or even if they thought he was eligible, they may have snubbed him because of the stigma of being a "cheater".

  • Even if there was no per se ineligibility due to PED, there has to be a stigma issue - no one voted for him because they all think he's a cheater. Probably will continue to cost him votes for the rest of his career, even if successful on appeal.

  • This is GREAT news! Screw the Pro-bowl, it's a bigger joke than the NBA all-star game /slam dunk bafoon-athon. In protest, all of our elected players should refuse to participate. I use to go every year, you coudn't pay me to go now. The NFL is not Baseball. The Pro-bowl is an accident waiting to happen, especially now that half of the players are going at half speed. That's when injuries happen. As an aside, Sherm just lost a bit of leverage come contract time (sez the selfish, opportunistic side of me).

  • Sherman was third in fan voting. He was kept out of the probowl by the players and coaches.

    I agree with Scootymojo; Sherman's behavior is toxic. I think that is why.

    Oh, it helps. Being named to the Pro-bowl has been a bargaining chip for agents since it's inception. I agree he is the best and he will be paid accordingly, but it does give JS more leverage than vice-versa. I was actually being (somewhat) facitious with that comment. I want Sherm to get paid but we do need to keep things in check and it's little things like this that could prevent a hold-out from his camp.

    And all I'm saying is this is one of th biggest snubs in Pro Bowl history. If he puts himself in the market, he'll be getting Top 5 CB money.

    I don't think it'll make a difference. If anything Sherman can say "look the rest of the league hate me so much they won't vote for me, that's REAL recognition"

  • If it wasn't so absurd I would be pissed. Richard Sherman is the best CB in the NFL. He's a Pro Bowler, I could give a shit if it's "officially recognized" by the biased, National Flag Football League.

  • This snub will make our ENTIRE defense play with a chip on their shoulders, not just Sherman. We are going to be scary as hell these playoffs - I love it!!!
