Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers has opted out of the Pro Bowl, opening his spot up to.... Andy Dalton?
WHAT ABOUT JOE FLACCO???
Once again, Ravens quarterback has been snubbed, following the best season of his professional career. However, it looks as if it's self-inflicted this time around according to his wide receiver, Torrey Smith.
I'm just going to assume Joe didn't want to go to the Pro Bowl...yup that's what I'm going to do— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) January 20, 2015
Well the baby is due soon so that's possible— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) January 20, 2015
Ok it is because of the baby....so calm down folks haha— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) January 20, 2015
If Flacco had actually been overlooked in favor of Dalton, it would have been absolutely ridiculous.
Here's a look at the season stats for the two:
In every category that actually matters (yards, touchdowns, interceptions and quarterback rating) Flacco takes the cake. Flacco has accomplished plenty throughout his seven year career, but still doesn't have the title of Pro Bowl quarterback to his name. With his third child on the way, I doubt he cares. Certainly the title of "father" is more desirable and once you're named the Super Bowl MVP, does a measly Pro Bowl appearance actually matter?
At first glance, hearing Dalton picked over Flacco looked criminal, but thanks to Torrey Smith, we can drop our pitchforks in Baltimore.
