Bleed Black & Gold:
Chris Kemoeatu was named a third alternate at guard for the 2012 Pro Bowl. This just shows that they might as well just let the fans vote because the players are just as bad. Chris Kemoeatu does not even start for his own team. He was benched and only gets in when other guys get hurt. For a player or coach to vote him good enough to be an alternate is just pathetic.
If Ike Taylor fans are angry that he did not get in they need to talk to the players. If they were not smart enough to vote Ike in and then vote Chris Kemoeatu in they need help. Now people really have something to complain about when it comes to Pro Bowl voting.
BEST OF MAXIM
