Two of the biggest "tools" in the Shed!

Did I hear right,

Moss and Brady are skipping the Pro Bowl? Cry babies! Be a man and show up if you are honored enough to get picked. What is the worse thing that can happen, you spend a week in Hawaii and don't get into the game. You know if the Pats would have won the Super Bowl, thier mugs would have been all over Hawaii!

lots of players skip the pro bowl after playing in the super bowl. not just brady and moss.

the pro bowl is a joke anyways. turn it into a golf tourney or something worth watching.

Doesn't Brady have an injured ankle?? Moss who know's why he doesnt want to go. I saw Favre passed on the pro bowl also, Garcia is taking his place. I don't even bother watching the pro bowl.

Wild,

I guess I can give Brady a pass but why would he not announce it before the game? I guess he might not want to tip the fact that he was hurt but everybody knew that anyway. I think if I was honored by the selection I would show up, take a series of snaps, hand the ball off a few times and then stand on the sidelines and wave to the fans. This is one of the all star games that really drives me crazy with all the players declining to go. Moss though is another story....TOOL! Agreed?

By far the worst all star game of the 4 major sports.

All "all-popular" games are boring and pathetic. At least baseball means something and they try....basketball, hockey, and football are just pointless....last year at the pro bowl I think the biggest hit was on a punter......basketball no defense...and also hockey no d and no checking.......where is the intensity when they played hard in these games..i.e Pete Rose knocking over the catcher....Good stuff!!

I can see it both ways, I wouldn't want to see A.P blow his knee out because of a hard hit or Gaborik for the wild risk an injury because of check along the boards.

Rundrave,

Not sure about Urlacher but if he did then that would be wrong too! I just think that the attitude of the players reflects on the product on the field. I agree with whoever posted on this thread that said NFL Pro Bowl is the worst of the 4 major sports. If you don't think it is an honor to be elected then you should withdraw your name at the start of the season and say that you will not attend even if you are chosen. Then the fans could see who the real "stars" are.

Tommie Harris has been hurt all year with a nagging groin and hammy injury and just had surgery on his knee I believe.

As for Briggs, put yourself in his shoes. You are about to sign a contract somewhere that will be huge. Why in the world would you want to risk getting injured (Drew Brees) in a meaningless Pro Bowl and risk getting a huge payday. I would skip out as well. Now that I think about it, he did have an injury and didn't play in one of the last three or four games.

Windy

His teammates seem to like him and his coach has nothing good to say about him. Since I dont know him personally I would say that based on what people who work with him say, Yes, he is a stand up guy and performs his job well.

98 rec. 1493 yards 23 TDs wow!

Yes, his current team seems to like him. And as long as things are going well he is likable. Ask the Raiders, or the Vikes that played with Randy when they were struggling. I think you would find a different opinion of the guy.

Thanks Fish,

My thought exactly but I will let Sled speak his mind.

Everybody is always a good winner, being a good loser and acting with class when things are not going your way is the mark of a true "stand up" guy. Like an old timer once said about touchdown celebrations....Act like you been there before. I think the coolest thing to do is when a guy just hands the ball to the ref and bolts to the sidelines to celebrate with his team! That's "stand up".

The should get the guys together and just have a fun competition...not a game. The Pro Bowl is a joke.

But still, it is an honor to be selected and you should go! If you don't go, it shows you have no class.

actually moss was well liked in the locker room at minnesota...after he was traded for "being a distraction" they asked the players and they all said they liked him.

the fact is mccombs didn't want to sell the team leaving a superstar there with a chance to win.

remember moss leaving was supposed to help duncecaps i mean culpeppers progression...lmmfao

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
