While most teams are making their playoff push, certain players are making their Pro Bowl push.
Tuesday is the final day for fan voting for the NFL’s Pro Bowl, which means Sunday’s game will be the last impression that players leave with voters.
A handful of players stated one final case as to why they should be going across the pond to Hawaii to this season’s Pro Bowl.
Those players included Eagles running back Brian Westbrook, who ran through the New York Giants; Titans running back Chris Johnson, who crushed Cleveland; Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker, who no longer is the other receiver in New England to go along with Randy Moss; Broncos quarterback Jay Cutler, whose play almost always correlates in whether Denver wins or loses; and veteran Dolphins cornerback Will Allen, who stamped himself as one of the game’s top defensive backs.
Sometimes it’s not how a player performs so much as when he performs. These players, and others, had some of their finest games in the days leading up to the Dec. 16 Pro Bowl announcement.
Their timing was nearly as good as their play.
