You’ve got to check out some of the highlights of the Philadelphia Eagles who are hanging out at this year’s NFL Pro Bowl.
It’s, perhaps, the only flaw in this great system that we call the NFL. No one watches the all-star game that’s attached to the most popular sport in this great country. Even if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, knowing that there are several of your favorite team’s best players involved probably won’t be enough to get you in front of the television.
It’s almost mind boggling when you think about it.
The NFL might be the most consistent piece of entertainment that we have in this country. Its’ preseason games gets more people to the television set than the regular season and playoff games of other sports.
Over time, the mighty NFL has tried all kinds of ideas to get people in front of their television sets to watch, but often, they’ve failed. Fans have shown up sporadically thanks to curiosity and, let’s be honest, boredom. Still, pro football’s version of the all-star game presses on.
On Sunday, January 26th we get another installment. The Philadelphia Eagles are represented by right tackle Lane Johnson, guard Brandon Brooks, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, and safety Malcolm Jenkins.
Cox and Brooks found their way onto the original roster. Johnson and Jenkins replaced the Dallas Cowboys‘ Tyron Smith and the New York Giants‘ Landon Collins respectively. Zach Ertz also appeared on the Pro Bowl roster, but he withdrew. He’s being replaced by the Atlanta Falcons‘ Austin Hooper.
