Winfield makes probowl

Recommended Posts

If there were ever a time for the NFL to re-evaluate its Pro Bowl procedures, I think we’ve hit it. Minnesota cornerback Antoine Winfield, who played in only 10 regular season games and is still playing in a limited capacity because of foot soreness, was added to the NFC roster Tuesday.

Don’t get me wrong. I think Winfield deserved this honor for several seasons before he finally broke through in 2008. When healthy, he’s one of the league’s best tacklers and is more than reliable in coverage.

But that’s just it. Winfield hasn’t been healthy for three months. He sprained his foot Oct. 18, missed six games and finished the year with one interception. He has spent the past two games as the Vikings’ nickel back because the foot has limited his speed in coverage.

Nevertheless, Winfield was a first alternate for the Pro Bowl and was presumably added to the roster because of an injury to Arizona cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie. Again, this isn't an attempt to mute Winfield's honor. There have been years when he's deserved to go to the Pro Bowl and been shut out, so I guess you could argue that what goes around, comes around.

But I think we can all agree on this: Any system that elevates a player who missed 40 percent of his team’s games -- no matter who he is -- is deeply, deeply flawed.

how about the Basketball all-star game that has the potential of having Allen Iverson and Tracy Mcrady as starters and neither has played much at all this season!!! All-star games are for the fans and if the fans wanted to see Winfield in the game so be it......

Well deserved based on his play this season before the injury. I'm pretty happy with the Pro Bowl selections and the methods used.

The game is such a joke. It might be an honor but it seems pointless to risk injury in such a meaningless game. And now the players for the Super Bowl teams don't even play because it's the week before the Superbowl. And if I was a Pro-Bowler on any of the teams that lose this weekend, the last thing I'd wan to do is play in some novelty game the next week on the same field that winners will play on for the big game.

I do think they need to have some sort of selection to honor the great players, but just give them a trophy or something, forget the game.

    • I have not purchases Forscan as I have access to an  OEM scan tool. There are somethings that the Forscan software can do that IDS cannot with Asbuilt. I have ways arround that. Just to clarify, you may not have to purchase the software to do what you want but use their free version. This is worth exploring. As for the OBD interface, might want to ask that question is a specific f150 forum and get an idea of what others are using.    High speed and medium speed compatibility would be nice for future toying. For your truck, you only need high speed interface. I can't remember what pins. Your truck has a gateway module DLC.  Basically it's a router that allows the different networks to communicate, but also your scan tool to communicate with all the networks over HS CAN 1 and 2.   The only software related mod I have done to my car is change the 3 turn signal blinks to 4.   Happy modding!
    • Ok that makes sense. When I saw swan I figured it was an member id. When I went to cub today I asked the HS kid if they had any  I got "I know we have them I just don't know where they'd be". I said freezers maybe by the other tots he said "what makes you think that" You can't make it up!
    • I think Schwan's is what was meant.   https://www.schwans.com/products/product?id=60297   The operator person will bring them right to your abode.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
