Open Thread: Bengals shutout of the NFL Pro Bowl

Let's see if this makes sense. Everyone votes for their selection in this year's Pro Bowl. Like Cincinnati having to wait for a pointless season finale where they're not likely to play their starting unit before getting a Primetime game, the Bengals are now shutout of the Pro Bowl. What's that? An AFC North champion squad that has no Pro Bowl selections, whereas the second place team Baltimore, the team that the Bengals beat twice this year, sport five players? No Cedric Benson. No Johnathan Joseph. No Leon Hall. No one.

In the end, it doesn't matter. The Bengals will be playing the week after, so they couldn't participate in the show they call the Pro Bowl, which is the biggest farce in all-star games in professional sports.
