Maybe I'm just high but, as I read NFC stories, one thread remains constant—the NFC South gets no respect.
Do you think it's a coincidence that these are all large market teams?
While I take another hit from my crack pipe, I'll tell you the NFL has become like "American Idol," you know, that lame TV show.
You have people voting for the Pro Bowl based on who's the dreamiest, not on real skills.
Show of hands, how many of you really believe Roy Williams is one of the best safeties in the NFC? He's not even one of the best in Dallas.
How come no one on Tampa's defense was sent a ticket to Hawaii? They played some of the best "D" last year, yet, none were called. Now I'm not gonna try to impress you with stats or facts (look them up yourself; you might learn something about football), but they, as a team and individually, should be recognized for their skill and not the size of their market.
The same can be said of the Saints' offense. Marques Colston caught more passes in his first two seasons than anyone in the history of the game, but he has yet to go to the Pro Bowl. If he played for Dallas or the Giants, he would have tasted poi by now, maybe even gotten layed.
But no, no one on the third best offense (the top two are in the AFC) deserved to go. That is unjust, the "O-line" gave up 16 sacks all of last year. I saw Flozell give up that many in the NFC Championship game alone.
Through the rings of crack smoke swirlling around my head, I can hear you saying blah, blah, blah, about this team, blah, blah, blah about that player. I know, I know but, the media hypes large market teams, and y'all drink the "gatorade."
There is no way to justify Jeff Garcia being the only NFC South player in the Pro Bowl. Anyone who believes this knows little about football and, should not be allowed to watch football or vote for who goes to the Pro Bowl.
I'm really feeling it now, so forgive me if I ramble on.
The whole point of preseason, and the regular season is to get to the postseason—that's what separates the men from the boys. No prepubescent with a itchy text finger is gonna help you get there, and the NFC South's record speaks for itself.
Since 2002, they have been in 5 out of 6 NFC Championships. Shocking ain't it?
That means not only have we made the playoffs, but done rather well to boot. So why are we considered the weak link? I can only blame the slanted liberal media (you know who you are), and sheep-like fans, who follow them (and I know who you are).
