NFL skills competition

Postby mutantseabass » Fri Feb 04, 2005 4:12 pm

ON Feb 12th the NFL will hold a skills comp during pro bowl weekend. There are a few glaring things in these lists that need to be changed. Let me know what you think. I think that this is a joke, who they selected and omitted for some of these.

Drew Brees – San Diego Chargers
Peyton Manning – Indianapolis Colts
Michael Vick – Atlanta Falcons


Strongest

La'Roi Glover – Dallas Cowboys

I thought that as well. 8-o Tom Brady should be there instead. And I didn't know Ahman Green was that fast...I'd think LT2 is faster than him. Someone correct me if I'm wrong though.

Vick was the one that stands out like a sore thumb. I didnt know that AJ was that fast either.

Vick in the accuracy contest?? And I don't see Champ Bailey and Santana Moss in the fastest challenge, and they're two of the fastest guys in the NFL.

I'm pretty sure it's only for players in the Pro Bowl, which would eliminate Moss. But if you're right about Champ being so fast then I guess he should be in there as well, he made it to the big game. (although he shouldn't have)

Oh, I didn't even take the time to notice if all the guys were in the Pro Bowl. But champ bailey does drserve to be in the speed contest, and he could win it. If the guys who nominated the players for the challenges think that Joe Horn is faster than Champ Baily, they are high.

Oh, Ahman is probably the 2nd fastest RB in the game, behind Michael Bennett. :-D

But seriously, Green should run away with the contest.

And about the accuracy, and other questionable picks. You have to realize not everyone wants to do it. For all the competitions, especially the fastest player, there is an injury risk. I hope these guys stretch.

I was thinking that too. I doubt everyone on this list is the first choice. Watch Mike Vick win it. Id laugh. :-b
