  • Giants' Chris Snee Will Postpone Surgery, Play In 2013 Pro Bowl

    http://www.giants101.com/2013/01/12/...2013-pro-bowl/

    Excerpt: "New York Giants' offensive linemanChris Snee played all 16 games of the 2012 season, but it certainly wasn't easy. It was revealed shortly after their season ended that Snee had not only battled through a partially torn hip labrum, but also several painful bone spurs.

    A source close to Snee recently told Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News that he had "no idea" how Snee was even able to play, and that the veteran guard was in "a ton of pain." Yet he stuck it out and plans to do exactly that over the next few weeks, forgoing surgery so that he can play in the 2013 Po Bowl." Read more...

    WHY would he not do everything in his power to come back 100% healthy next season.. makes ZERO sense. In such a meaningless game. The game is a joke and that's a HUGE understatement.


    This is not in the best interest of the team, they shouldn't let him play and instead opt to have the surgery as soon as possible.

    Even if it's just a minor surgery... still makes no sense.


    Following the game, Snee will meet with doctors to discuss his options, and will likely need "minor" surgery. He is expected to be ready when the team begins training camp in July.


    I'd rather that be a certainty after the season he had.

        I am sure the medical poeple have told him what the anticipated recovery period is. I think the Pro Bowl is little more than a beauty pageant, but the players think otherwise. At his age, I don't blame him. How many more shots at the Pro Bowl is he likely to get?

          Im gonna take a wild guess and say maybe he gets some sort of pay bump for attending the probowl. I know the probowl itself has money at stake.

            Hey, good for him, didn't necessarily play very good due to injuries but he got in so let him enjoy it, better be ready by camp though.

              If he's 100% by camp then great Chris have fun... but so help you if you're not.

              When you're in the game sit there, look pretty, and let everyone through and we'll be all good

                    He shouldn't have even been a pro-bowl selection.

                      BINGO. It's a weekend where players can get away from all the criticism about their non-Superbowl teams and just enjoy themselves after another long season.

                        No disrespect to #76. . .he's doing the best he can, but he's had two down years in a row now. You wonder if the people who make the selections even bother to watch any NFL games or do they just go by salary.

                          They go with name recognition for the linemen, I think. Snee had a couple of legit Pro Bowl-worthy (if there is such a thing) seasons, so people know his name.

                          It's hard to track linemen as they don't receive media coverage unless they've done something wrong.

                            Also, stats for a lineman are not plentiful as other positions. When you do Pro-Bowl balloting all you see are names and teams. I think thats why so many players that were injured for a amjority of a year still make it in. I always like to look at top running backs and how little a quarterback was sacked when making a selection...usually because I am bored at work when making those selections.

                              Because you make millions of dollars and can go to Hawaii and better, anytime you like.
