Russell Wilson and Pro Bowl worthiness
By Mike Sando
Aaron Rodgers, Matt Ryan and Robert Griffin III were named to the Pro Bowl as NFC quarterbacks this season.
All three withdrew from the game, citing injuries.
That left alternates Drew Brees, Eli Manning and Russell Wilson to replace them. Were they worthy? The chart compares regular-season stats for all six quarterbacks.
Rodgers, Ryan and Wilson would have been my top three when all six of the quarterbacks' seasons concluded. Pro Bowl voting took place with two regular-season games remaining. Rodgers, Ryan and Griffin would have been my choices at that point in the season, followed by Wilson, Brees and Manning if those six were the players from which to choose.
