Another selection that seems kind of stupid is Billy Cundiff as AFC kicker. Don't get me wrong. Cundiff has come a long way from the disaster he was last year, but he's made 24-of-27 field goals this season. Adam Vinatieri, meanwhile, has made 23-of-25 (90%). He's also a perfect 48-for-48 on extra points.
Essentially, Vinatieri is having a better season than Cundiff, but it's Cundiff is going to the Pro Bowl. The fan-voted kicker was Josh Scobee, who is 21-of-26 on field goals this year.
Also in the Pro Bowl is Brandon Meriweather, a safety who can't tackle and can't cover anyone. Logan Mankins, who has only played in eight games this season after a lengthy holdout, is also going.
Yeah, the Pro Bowl is kind of dumb.
