    Rivers will likely get his due
    Posted Today at 04:45 PM by caseybolts
    Philip Rivers leads the NFL in passer rating and is tied for the league lead in TD passes but wasn't one of the three quarterbacks selected to the Pro Bowl Tuesday.

    Still, he'll likely be in Hawaii. Future Hall of Famer Brett Favre, who leads the NFL with 17 interceptions this season, hasn't played in a Pro Bowl since 1996. He's been elected to five all star teams since but decided to stay home.

    Rivers is the first alternate, so if Favre, Jay Cutler or Peyton Manning can't/don't make the trip, Rivers will go.

    Conversly, Rivers was one of three signal callers elected to the Pro Bowl in 2006, his first season as a starter, but couldn't play due to a foot injury he suffered late in the season.

    He probably will since Favre hasnt played in the game since 1996 but it would be better if he were voted in like he deserved to be.

    cuz when youre on a crappy team like jokeland, its probably refreshing to be on a team once a year where you actually have good coaching, GREAT talent, AND you might actually win.
