Vontaze Burfict, was crucified when he came out of the draft, because of a few incidents that happened both on and off the field, but he still has some strong values. In his eyes, a Pro Bowl invite means nothing if he can’t take his teammates with him. That is, assuming the Bengals are done playing on Jan. 26.
“For me, I don’t think the Pro Bowl should be in the NFL,” Burfict said. “That’s an individual thing and this is not an individual sport. You’ve got 10 more guys that are out on the field with you. If I make it to the Pro Bowl, then everybody else should make it to the Pro Bowl.”
This is a main reason I love the guy, he is a good overall player and person. The Bengals were able to hit the jackpot with him. He leads the NFL in tackles this year with over 150 tackles, I don’t get how he is not a top vote getter for the Pro Bowl…..
