The Buffalo Bills were able to send two players to the Pro Bowl. We congratulate Lorenzo Alexander and LeSean McCoy! Alexander’s amazing story especially deserves to be highlighted as a 33-year-old first-time all-star. Still, it’s not hard to see that some Bills were right on the cusp but missed out on an invite.
@BuffRumblings How does the best O-Lineman for the league's No.1 rushing offense not get invited? @68INCOGNITO #BillsSnub— Ty Harper (@theamricndream) December 21, 2016
Incognito wasn’t selected to the Pro Bowl in 2016, either, but eventually made it as an alternate. It’s hard to argue that the trio of Marshal Yanda, Kelechi Osemele, and David DeCastro haven’t been great this season, though.
@BuffRumblings Shady sets a NFL record, Bills have the top rushing offense, no @68INCOGNITO or Felton #BillsSnub #BILLSMAFIA— Al Wackowicz (@awackowi) December 21, 2016
Like Incognito, Felton has been opening holes for McCoy all year. He has been stellar in this role, even if it doesn’t show up overtly on the stat sheet. The Ravens are 28th in rushing but Kyle Juszcyzyk gets the nod? Come on!
@ZachBrown_55 #3 on tackles list for entire #NFL. Stats don't lie. https://t.co/n8BKHVVueA— Veronica R. Chiesi (@VRCB32) December 21, 2016
Brown does indeed hold down the third spot on the individual tackles list with 130 and he’s first among the AFC defenders. He also has four sacks, second-most among the top 73 tacklers in the NFL. (Houston’s Benardrick McKinney has five.) Three passes defended and and an interception add to his resume, where he has been very good this season. Even he thinks he should have made it, taking to Twitter to express his apparent frustration.
If K Williams was more outlandish & danced more on the field he would have made the pro bowl this year Guy just goes to work Huge #BillsSnub— Kyle Sackett (@KyleSackett) December 21, 2016
Williams has been outstanding this year. It’s not his fault the Bills are getting run on. He was out for the game against the Steelers with La’Veon Bell running wild. The four-time Pro Bowler has better numbers this year than his last trip to the all-star game in 2014.
