    Patriots QB Tom Brady pulls out of the Pro Bowl with an injury

    Brady Pro Battered and bruised all season, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady has pulled out of the Pro Bowl with an injury. Which one? All of them, I’d guess. Ribs, finger, shoulder, etc…

    Brady’s move, while not shocking at all, was just released with updated Pro Bowl rosters on NFL.com. And here is the accompanying story.

    He was replaced by Houston’s Matt Schaub, who led the league in passing. Brady made his fifth Pro Bowl after throwing for 4,398 yards with 28 touchdowns and 13 interceptions, despite being a regular on the injury report.

    Asked after the last game if he’d play in the Pro Bowl, Brady joked, “We have our exit physicals tomorrow, so we’ll see what comes up.”

    As for the Patriots, with Wes Welker and Randy Moss also out, only guard Logan Mankins, safety Brandon Meriweather, and nose tackle Vince Wilfork will play in Miami.

    Still a pretty good group, if you ask me…

    Don't ask Marvin Harrison what he did during the bye week. "Batman never told where the Bat Cave is," he explained.

    Schaub probably had a better year than Brady overall. I don't blame Brady for pulling out. Why play in the pro-bowl with sprained/broken fingers and broken/bruised ribs?

    I was wondering how this worked...

    Big Ben to skip Pro Bowl
    Wednesday, January 20, 2010
    By Ed Bouchette, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

    Ben Roethlisberger declined an invitation this week to play in the Pro Bowl because of a right shoulder injury.

    Tom Brady backed out of his spot on the AFC roster for the Pro Bowl, which will be held Jan. 31 in Miami, because of various minor injuries.

    As the first alternate, Roethlisberger was offered Brady's spot on the roster. However, the Steelers quarterback declined, a club spokesman said, because doctors advised him to get his shoulder "100 percent."

    Roethlisberger did not miss a practice this season, although he missed one game after complaining of headaches the week after he sustained a concussion in Kansas City Nov. 22.

    The quarterback seemed to favor his right shoulder during the team's season-ending game at Miami Jan. 3, holding his arm down to the side. Backup Dennis Dixon warmed up during the game, but Roethlisberger never left the contest.

    Roethlisberger declined to talk about any physical problem after the game.

    Mike Tomlin was asked two days later at his press conference if there was anything seriously wrong with his quarterback's arm.

    "No, I don't think that it is, but I don't have specific, detailed information regarding it," Tomlin said. "But I don't think it's anything that's going to require a medical procedure of any kind."

    Roethlisberger spent some time at the team's facility on the South Side Monday. This would have been his second Pro Bowl; he made it after the 2007 season. Houston's Matt Schaub was added to the AFC roster to replace Brady




    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    Kordell Stewart is one injury away from being a replacement Pro Bowler.

    I'm guessing that the members of the 2001 Pro Bowl selection committee don't put that on fact on their resumes.

    That is a safe prediction, for this year, for next year, for the year after that, and the one after that...

    "It's so awesome," Garrard said. "One of my goals coming into the game was to just be relevant and show all the people who said, `What is he doing in there? The Pro Bowl has dropped off a few pegs,' that I do belong."


    LOLLLLLLLLLL.

    The game had the highest ticket sales ever and highest TV ratings ever.

    There were lots of complaints, but it's hard to argue that this in many ways the date and location is a good idea.
