The NFL seems to be scrambling to find replacements for the Pro Bowl even though there won’t be a game played this year.
Now, the latest development has fans pondering the legitimacy of the Pro Bowl.
According to Ian Rapoport, Baltimore Ravens quarterback Tyler Huntley has been named to the Pro Bowl as a replacement for Josh Allen. This is a great moment for Huntley. However, the guy didn’t do anything to deserve it. He put up a measly 658 passing yards, three total touchdowns, and three interceptions.

I don’t know about you, but those are not worthy numbers to make the Pro Bowl. Are there really no other quarterbacks available to represent the AFC? I mean, congratulations to Tyler Huntley. But this is a weird look for the NFL.
Considering the league and fans use Pro Bowl nods to help determine whether or not a player makes the Hall of Fame, you’d think the NFL would choose someone other than Tyler Huntley.
He’s serious 🧐

If the league wasn’t trying to monetize the Pro Bowl then it might have been gone long ago.
My god…just get rid of the Pro Bowl.

We need answers!
So they offered it to every other QB in the AFC, and they all turned it down? How else does this happen?

Oh well. It’s not like the Pro Bowl is this super prestigious thing anymore. I can’t even remember the last time I watched it. And who knows? Maybe Huntley will prove to be the best dodgeball player in the NFL.
