Eli is an alternate? Russell Wilson would be more worthy.

Please let Romo have it. It's his type of the game -- MEANINGLESS and NO PRESSURE. LOL!

That's as good a reason as any to make it. I'd like Eli to not go as we will get treated to more pics of his pail toting torso at Waikiki :popcorn:

i'm with Rogers....who gives a flying flip about the pro bowl....
who the hell cares about it , or ever did.
never understood how or why people would enjoy watching other
people take a Hawaiian vacation.....and vote on who to watch.....

it freakin' means less than a "like this" on a facebook page.
never did understand that lunacy either.

I know, I'm just surprised that Eli wound up with enough votes to be an alternate. It just shows you how much of a joke the whole thing is.

http://www.nj.com/giants/index.ssf/2013/01/giants_quarterback_eli_manning_2.html

Excerpt: "Quarterback Eli Manning will replace the Packers' Aaron Rodgers on the NFC Pro Bowl team, the Giants announced today.

Rodgers said on 540 ESPN Radio and ESPNWisconsin.com today that injuries to “multiple lower extremities” will keep him out of the game (http://www.espnwisconsin.com/common/more.php?m=49&post_id=18281).

Manning was named a second alternate to the Pro Bowl. Saints quarterback Drew Brees is replacing Washington's Robert Griffin III, who recently had knee surgery. Atlanta's Matt Ryan is playing in the NFC Championship Game and would also need to be replaced, if the Falcons advance to the Super Bowl.

The Pro Bowl will be played Sunday, Jan. 27 in Hawaii, a week before Super Bowl XLVII." Read more...

When asked how he felt about losing the divisional game to the San Francisco 49ers, Aaron Rodger replied "I don't know what went wrong. Still wondering how we lost to the Giants at home."

is anyone else concerned this is somewhat positive reinforcement for eli off a so so year. i dont want anything making him feel like this season was acceptable and a probowl kinda does so individually. i guess hes earned it but i dunno. id rather he sit in the dark all day and night until preseason where he makes a hannibal lecter like run at the lombardi

I don't think Eli will be satisfied with his performance this year and appearing in the Pro Bowl will not change that. Even though the fans hate it, the league still lists Pro Bowl appearances when looking at a player's career for induction into the HOF (along with individual stats and Super Bowls).

It doesn't matter what type of season any of them had. In my opinion, this is a game for the fans choice because it is the fans that vote on who they want to see.

imo it's a game for the best players and they should get rid of fan voting, popularity contests suck.

Biggest nosedive it took is when they moved it to the off- week before the Super Bowl. That alone probably takes 6-12 players/starters off the roster... How is that even a pro-bowl?

Hannibal Eli aside, I don't think this will go to Eli's head. He's feet are firmly on the ground IMO.

This is gna be funny because its a known fact that everybody goes in their with a half assed mentality but i dont think anybody else realizes that Eli doesnt have a "half" mode and is going to take playing a 100% serious and light that field up. Might see a few classic Eli shoulder shrugs if Calvin and Fitzgerald dont come down with some passes

Game sucks anyway and is a joke. They should give the guys the props, fly them to Hawaii and let them have fun....I still like the idea of a pure skills tournament. I'm not sure how you do that competitively for certain positions but it can be figured out.

I for one would watch it, and I havent watched a probowl in.....let me think.......never if you count watching it in its entirety or not in a decade at all. I hate when players lay down during the season when it counts why would I watch them lay down in a game that they shouldn't play hard in.
