Grats to Richie ... but honestly, how are Reshad Jones, Mike Pouncey and Brandon Fields all sitting at home while Richie Incognito is going to be in Hawaii? LOL, it kinda shows you how off the voting for that stuff really is. I wonder if his trash talking in Hard Knocks had anything to do with it?
Im actually glad though - maybe we can get a decent trade for the guy in the offseason. Which poor sap gm wants our pro bowl guard who is a god awful fit for our system?
Incognito is a good player. We have very few players representing our team, and when another one gets in, the complaints start.
Maybe we can get something in trade value instead of just cutting him now.
When I first read this I thought it was a joke/attention getter........or that he tweeted he was going as a spectator...anyways...the only thing I like about him going and playing in the probowl is since he is known by all his peers as one of the dirtiest players in the league that I wonder if anyone will be scared of him or any primadonnas crying when he is getting extra hits in a pile up or tumbling down on them "accidently" after the whistle had already been blown....
He's a guy that continues to be our best LG inspite of being not the greatest fit there. I gotta give him credit, I have written him off every year and he continues to be consistent in comparison to the rest of the crap we have tried to throw at guard.
Still, he's not a great fit for a ZBS, and I would hope we atleast attempt to get a couple of guards that can move a little better. Ritchie is more of a mauler and should be playing RG.
4th player we've had in recent memory who got in the pro bowl a year too late (Yeremiah Bell, Randy Starks, Big Paul). Ritchie was absolutely a pro bowler in Daboll's offense, but after the 2nd Jets game he had 1 good game (2nd Bills game).
Still congrats to him.
I don't mean to be one of those negative fans, but the Pro Bowl is a joke and I don't think he deserves it. Pouncey, Jones, and Fields were our true Pro Bowlers that didn't get in.
Either way, congratz to him.
