The NFL will announce the rosters for the 2012 Pro Bowl tonight at 7pm. If you have nothing to do, it is on the NFL Network.
Don’t expect a parade of Giants to be headed to Hawaii. The only Giants that have a shot at being on the initial roster are QB Eli Manning, DE Jason Pierre-Paul and WR Victor Cruz.
Manning has the misfortune of being in the same category as Aaron Rodgers – a cinch for league MVP – and Drew Brees – who just set an NFL record for passing yards in a single season.
He is also up against much anti-Giant sentiment as illustrated in the strong showing of Detroit’s Matthew Stafford and Carolina rookie Cam Newton. Don’t be shocked if one of these two edges Eli out for the third spot at QB.
JPP and Cruz are not on the fans’ ballot and would have to rely on the coaches and players to vote them in. Not impossible, but not likely, either.
The rosters that will be announced tonight will change drastically between now and the Jan 29th kickoff.
You will see many spots open ...
