Ravens’ “Snoop” Huntley to replace Josh Allen in Pro Bowl Games

Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback “Snoop” Tyler Huntley has been added to the NFL’s Pro Bowl Games as a replacement for Josh Allen, according to Ian Rapoport.

The NFL made the switch from the Pro Bowl to the Pro Bowl Games this season. In previous years, dating back to 1951, the NFL played a regular football game that included the league’s top players. Beginning this season, the Pro Bowl games take the place in what is now a two-day event with games and competitions.

Among Huntley, representing the AFC quarterbacks in the Pro Bowl Games will be Joe Burrow and Trevor Lawrence.

Huntley, who appeared in just six games this season, threw more interceptions than touchdowns during the regular season.

Moreover, the Ravens’ backup amassed 658 yards, two touchdowns, and three interceptions in those six games played. That’s it.

Baltimore Ravens starting quarterback, Lamar Jackson, played in 12 games and threw for 2242 yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Jackson also rushed for 765 yards and three touchdowns.

This leads to one question. Why?

After voting, Huntley was named as the fourth alternate, meaning if someone could not attend, Huntley was fourth in line. Above him were Tua Tagovailoa, Lawrence, and Jackson, in that specific order.

Tagovailoa remains in concussion protocol, per reports made a week ago. Lawrence has stepped in to take the place of Mahomes, who will be playing in the Super Bowl. Jackson would have got the nod, however, he has been dealing with a PCL sprain suffered in Week 13. This caused Jackson to remain sidelined for the rest of the season.

Another obvious name is Chargers’ Justin Herbert. However, Herbert underwent shoulder surgery following the conclusion of the Chargers’ season. Had he been healthy, he most likely would have been the selection over Huntley.

Nevertheless, other quarterbacks have done more and played more than Huntley.

For example, Russell Wilson. Yes, he had a bad year. However, he did play in 15 games while amassing 3524 yards, 16 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.

Additionally, Derek Carr and Ryan Tannehill are also named more deserving than Huntley.

Furthermore, voting is done by the players, which in this case, appears flawed. The Pro Bowl was already an afterthought amongst other professional league’s all-star games. Now, it just looks foolish.
