Philip Rivers Should Still Be A Pro Bowler

By Ernie Padaon

Pro Bowl rosters come out next week and being named to the roster is more exciting than the actual Pro Bowl game. Fan voting ended this week and Philip Rivers was not even in the top 5 QBs in the AFC in fan votes!!!Why shouldn’t Philip Rivers be named to the Pro Bowl? I understand that he has has a down year, but a down year for Philip is still better than a lot of the chumps that are in this conference. The top QB in the AFC is Tom Brady and then Ben Roethlisberger should be named to the roster, but who gets the third QB spot on the roster? Matt Schaub could have taken it, but he is injured. Peyton Manning has not taken a snap all year long.

Here is how the quarterbacks ranked for AFC fan voting:1. Tom Brady2. Ben Roethlisberger3. Tim Tebow4. Ryan Fitzpatrick5. Andy Dalton

Are you saying that Tim Tebow is more deserving of that last QB spot on the roster over Philip?!? He ranks last in the conference in passing yards and completion percentage! He can’t even accomplish anything in the first 3 quarters of a game.

Mark Sanchez? Joe Flacco? Ryan Fitzpatrick? Andy Dalton? REALLY!?

Even with Philip having a DOWN year, he is ranked 2nd in the conference in passing yards, TD passes and passes completed over 20+ yards. He doesn’t even leading the league in interceptions anymore. Number 4 in fan votes leads the league in interceptions.

When rosters are announced on Tuesday, we better see Philip’s name on it!
