The NFL Will Announce The Players Who Will Participate In The Utterly Useless Event Known As The 'Pro Bowl' Tonight At 7PM ET

Brian Spurlock-US PRESSWIRE

The Pro Bowl sucks, but let's pretend we like it anyway.

The Pro Bowl sucks. We know it. You know it. The NFL knows it.

Yet, for reasons that make me shrug as I stare bleary-eyed into my computer screen, an announcement about when the NFL will officially select the participants in the Pro Bowl is, somehow, expected around here. So, here it is:

This season's Pro Bowl teams will be announced live today at 7 p.m. ET on a special edition of "NFL Total Access." Don't miss the Pro Bowl Selection Show, and check NFL.com later Wednesday for full analysis of the AFC and NFC rosters, plus a look at the worst snubs.

Yay.

Full analysis.

Of a broken "All Star" game that will be ditched by half the people selected to attend it.

I'm so tuning in to watch that.

For a much more interesting take on the Pro Bowl, I suggest heading to Pro Football Focus and checking out who they think should make the Pro Bowl in the AFC. For the Colts, they list Reggie Wayne and rookie tight end Dwayne Allen as the most deserving:

It was harder picking the second choice with it ultimately coming down to Allen and Heath Miller. In the end, while the staff was split, the superior blocking of Allen won out.

Allen is arguably the best all-around tight end in the AFC. He broke Ken Dilger's franchise record for catches in a single season by a rookie tight end last week against the Chiefs.
