This was what King posted on the Pro Bowl in his MMQB column this week:

I think, regarding the Pro Bowl, these are the last words you'll read from me on a game that's more useless than a fourth preseason game between two teams resting every starter: I have no use for, and no interest in, a process that rewards a Pro Bowl berth to Patriots guard Logan Mankins when he misses seven of 16 games due to holdout in 2010 and six of 16 games due to injury in 2012. The selection process is flawed (fans voting for guards?), and the players want the vacation to Hawaii, not to play a game. Bad mix.

It's absurd that a guy gets in on name recognition while missing 44 percent of the games one year and 38 percent of the game in another year. That's one of many reasons -- but a big one -- why I treat the Pro Bowl with back-of-the-hand deference. It deserves it.

Just another case against for it being a sham.
