I’d like to take some time to congratulate the Bills’ Pro Bowlers for 2011…and I’m done. The Bills were shut out for the 2011 game, which is not totally surprising since they are 4-11 and are short on talent.
Some players on the team did have good seasons, but I don’t really think you can be too upset with any Bills being omitted.
Ryan Fitzpatrick has thrown for 3000 yards and 23 tds.
Stevie Johnson has 77 catches for 1001 yards and 10 tds.
However, when you look at the players who made the team ahead of them (QBs Brady, Rivers, Manning WRs Andre Johnson, Reggie Wayne, Brandon Lloyd and Dwayne Bowe) you can’t really complain about the roster.
Probably the most compelling argument for a Bill could be made for Kyle Williams who has 5.5 sacks and 11 tackles for loss from the NT/DT position, but when you’re playing in the middle on a defense that has allowed over 2,400 yards rushing, you can’t really complain about not making the Pro Bowl.
I don’t know if you’re tired of this phrase for this team also, but…maybe next year…
