Yep.

Pro Bowl is about name recognition and early season stats for most positions. Gross has player respect and name recognition and that is a position where stats means little to nothing. Gross is our closet thing to a Pro Bowl lock.

Luke will struggle to be an alternate. His play vs others doesn't carry tons of weight in the matter


Gross... ur smokin dope...

Bob Griffin III got up in there.



That means he may have a strong chance of winning OROY honors.

According to the Cincy Enquirer, Gresham is 1st alternate at TE so he should be taking Heath Miller's spot in Hawaii.

What???!?!?!

You must not have watched any of the games this season when he looked like a high schooler out there. You should go take a look at some stats on gross, they'll make you puke.


Why don't you provide a link for the stats?

As I mentioned in the other thread, the biggest joke is Larry Fitzgerald being an alternate. He doesn't even have 800 yards. Outside top 30 in receiving yards! What a freaking JOKE!

You seem to confuse the pro bowl with who is playing the best at their position. They aren't the same.

When alternates are announced.....Gross and Smitty have best odds. Those odds have little to do with how they are playing this year and mainly name recognition and respect from peers

I will say that I'm kind of disappointed. Not one panther in the pro bowl. I was really expecting luke to be in there. IMO some of those NFC players shouldn't be in there but what do I know

I haven't seen where he ranks on the alternate food chain, just that he's listed as one. I'd venture to guess no higher than 3rd alt.

Just the fact he is an alternate is comedy. Greg Olsen has more yards and touchdowns than Fitzgerald this year on 49 less targets. There are 15 receivers in the NFC that have better stats than Fitzgerald.
