With shades of Martin Scorsese (“Goodfellas”) losing to Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”) for the Oscar for Best Director, above is a breakdown of the offensive snubs for the 2010 Pro Bowl — per NFL Network’s Torry Holt and Charles Davis.
On the list of biggest snubs: Chris Johnson, Aaron Rodgers and Matt Cassel.
Johnson was all the rage last year after rushing for 2,006 yards and 14 touchdowns. But, man, 1,325 and 11 just didn’t cut it this year.
It’s too bad Rogers missed most of the game against the Lions and the Sunday night showdown the following week against the Patriots, otherwise the story could be different.
And nevermind that Cassel bounced back strong from a terrible 2009 season to post 27 touchdowns to only five interceptions this year. Not good enough.
One question: What about Peyton Hillis?
