    Polite is #2 alternate at FB for Pro Bowl

    http://blogs.palmbeachpost.com/theda...ain-a-mystery/

    Miami fullback Lousaka Polite is the No. 2 alternate at his position, but he’s not the only Dolphins’ alternate. The team will not confirm the other ones.
    If I am correct in how I am interpreting this, this means that Polite is actually #3 on the Pro Bowl list at fullback in the AFC. That would mean, if Le'Ron McClain gets injured, decides not to go, or the Ravens make the Super Bowl, Polite is still not guaranteed a trip to the game he deserves to be in. It will take two fullbacks(including McClain) to drop out before he could go.

    Such a shame.

    still dont see why Polite is so much more deserving than McClain
