    Great points Backrow. Actually, I just looked up the final rushing stats and was a bit surprised to see how close Elliott (Dallas) got to CMac in the end -- just 30 yards behind. Barely won the NFC rushing title, after being far head most of November and December. I guess that had to do with Carolina getting him over the line of 1,000 yards receiving -- throwing him the ball a lot more than usual in the last couple games.

    Here's a couple quick points:

    While some might belittle the Pro Bowl as joke, which might be true concerning the Pro Bowl game itself. A Pro Bowl nomination is huge in terms of determining which players make the Hall of Fame. Obviously Pro Bowl nominations are much more important for offensive lineman and defenders than running backs, receivers and quarterbacks, but Christian playing in the Pro Bowl is another huge step for him, as is his 1st-team All-Pro honors.

    Speaking of the Hall of Fame, it was noted Christian grew up around the Denver Broncos from the latter 199o's and beyond. I was looking at Terrell Davis' stats recently and it would appear Christian only needs two or three more 1,000 yard seasons to be considered a serious HoF candidate. Now the Panthers have not been nearly as successful as those Broncos teams, yet. But Christian's dominance as a receiver is also plus going forward, in regards to the HoF.

    Also, something that hasn't been talked about yet: CMac has only one season left on his rookie contract. Personally, if I was CMac I would not sign an extension with Carolina. I'm sure Carolina will franchise him if he's still going strong and wants to leave. But I'm hoping he can wiggle out of Carolina after next season and perhaps wind up in San Francisco or Denver? With Carolina's far-left wing, Gentile/Goyim-hating Jewish owner (Stephen Tepper) suddenly running the show, my personal preference is he leaves as soon as he can. My guess is the moment his game slips even a little bit, Tepper will make it very tough for CMac, a devout, young Christian white male. He's every thing someone like Tepper (and most others of his ilk) loathes all wrapped up into one package.

    Up until Wednesday night, I was planning on watching the Pro Bowl. What happened to change my mind? Looks like Christian has bowed out, decided not to play -- even though he is not nursing a injury.

    At first glance it might seem obvious that he does not play due to his 2019 workload, but most players attend at least one or two Pro Bowl's early in their career's just for the experience. After they've played in couple, they usually find excuses never to play again -- particularly the elite quarterbacks. Also, it's weird in the sense that Christian was clearly upset when he did not make it in 2018. Either way, no Christian, means no reason to watch this year.

    In addition to CMac, both Bosa brothers will not play. Luke K., who recently retired, has also declined his invite. Only notable whites from a taboo positions scheduled to play are T.J. Watt and Harrison Smith. There were also quite a few black defenders that bowed out, but all the replacements were black, so the likes of Maxx Crosby, Matt Ioannidis, Joe Schobert, Blake Martinez, Matt Milano and others were shunned, which is unfortunate.

    Bit of a change from the previous few years were you had several white defenders and goys like Jordy Nelson or Adam Thielen playing.

    The Pro Bowl should go the way of the old-time All-Star games. It should be eliminated. I remember when I worked at Dodger Stadium a lot of the old-timers would injure themselves by not realizing that old age had taken its grip. If I was an NFL All-Pro I would never play in one. The risk of injury is great and will hit the bottom line$. CMAC made the right move. Screw it.

    The Pro Bowl has devolved into a glorified flag football game. The risk of injury is minimal, but it's also a waste of time for the players. The only way anyone would care about it would be to have it in the middle of the season like the other three major sports but the NFL will never do that nor should they. Being named to it is all that counts.
