Adams
Dallas Cowboys left tackle Flozell Adams has been named to the Pro Bowl roster for the fifth time in his career. It took injuries to Walter Jones and Chris Samuels to make this happen.

If you needed one more reason why this is the worst all-star game of the four major sports, consider this Exhibit Z. Adams regressed this season, but he continues to back into Pro Bowls because of his past achievements. If he makes one more Pro Bowl, he'll tie Hall of Famer Rayfield "Big Cat" Wright for most appearances. I'm sorry, but something's not right about that.

After the 2003 season, I remember Bill Parcells saying that Adams had a chance to be the best left tackle in the game. He still has the ability to dominate talented defensive ends, but it doesn't happen that often anymore.

Someone just asked me if they call false starts in Hawaii. It's a valid question.
