Count Titans QB Matthew Hasselbeck among the unswayed in response to his kicker’s grassroots bid for the Pro Bowl.
Rob Bironas and his merry band of followers have posted a YouTube spot encouraging citizens to send the kicker to Hawaii for the Jan. 29 affair between the AFC and NFC all-stars.
“Talk about a shameless pro bowl vote request video,” Hasselbeck tweeted Thursday, after witnessing a steady stream of Nashville-area characters play with the theory that Bironas is the AFC’s finest kicker (in fact, he’s seventh in the NFL in scoring with 92 points, but who’s counting?).
Accompanied by the well-worn “My Bironas” anthem, it’s clear some effort went into this production (and it isn’t nearly as disturbing at Chris Bosh‘s bid for the 2008 NBA All-Star Game), but will it be enough to quell the rising fervor surrounding Billy Cundiff? You can place your vote right here.
Kickers producing self-promotional videos on YouTube — just one of the perks of life in a free nation.
