Did Pierre Garçon Get Snubbed From The 2014 NFL Pro Bowl?

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on January 22, 2014 – 1:00 pm

(AP)

At some point in the history of the universe somebody hitched the word to all-star exclusion.

I’ve said, heard and read “snubbed” enough times in the past two days to book a trip to Martha’s Vineyard solely for the purpose of using it both nautically and before a steeplechase.

My fixation stems from a timely question: Was Pierre Garçon snubbed from the Pro Bowl?

 

(Fox Sports)

 

I say yes.

Garçon’s omission from the game is unacceptable. Not only did the receiver break Art Monk’s 29-year old franchise record for receptions in a single season, he led the league with 113 catches.

 

 

The last time the league’s leading receiver did not make the Pro Bowl was 1998, when Miami’s O.J. McDuffie made 90 grabs.

Both Wes Welker  (2007) and Muhsin Muhammad (2000) missed the all-star game after tying for the lead league in receptions, but T.J. Houshmandzadeh and Marvin Harrison represented a share of the receiving title at the Pro Bowl in those years.

In addition to nabbing more passes than any other receiver, Garçon compares favorably to the receivers in the Pro Bowl. He had more receiving yards than Dez Bryant, Brandon Marshall, DeSean Jackson and Larry Fitzgerald. He scored as many touchdowns (5) as Andre Johnson, who played for the only team with a worse record than the Redskins.

 

 

In some cases, Garçon was even snubbed from the snub lists.

NFL Media’s Around the League Editor Gregg Rosenthal did not include the receiver on his list of 10 players deserving Pro Bowl honors. Neither did Sports Illustrated Audibles blogger Chris Burke.  ESPN did not include Garçon in a vote for the biggest snub despite placing two receivers in five spots.

SI’s Fansided blog did include Garcon on its list in December.

Don’t feel too bad for Pierre. He’s still enjoying some island time.

Like my grandpappy used to say, “When you can’t go to Hawaii, go to Haiti.”

    Its very simple for folks to understand that the media will snub the redskina because of the name changing the media and only rhe media cares about.
    I very seldom watch espn anymore as their bias really shows,and the nfl network is just about as bad. so redskin nation has to circle the wagons and ignore the\powerful media lobby.they were upset that rg111 had the highest selling
    jersey in the league. So they started reporting falsehoods about him,and theare trying to ruin his reputation. DCan snyder is hater in the media everywhere,and
    seldom do they report that him and his wife are great at working to get rid of
    cancer around the country. Folks beware of our nationlal sports media,they \want the redskins to change their name and wont take no for an answer.
