NFL Pro Bowl slammed after selection of Ravens BACKUP quarterback Tyler Huntley
Players and media are wrecking the NFL’s Pro Bowl after Ravens BACKUP quarterback Tyler Huntley was picked to replace Bills’ Josh Allen despite appearing in ONLY six games this season
The waning legitimacy of the NFL’s Pro Bowl took another blow Tuesday when Baltimore Ravens backup quarterback Tyler Huntley was called up to the AFC roster for Sunday’s game despite making just five starts in the regular season and playoffs .
Huntley replaces Buffalo Bills quarterback Josh Allen, who is scheduled to play at a Pro-Am PGA Tour event in Pebble Beach this weekend.
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence has been named as Patrick Mahomes’ replacement as the Kansas City Chiefs quarterback prepares for the following week’s Super Bowl. However, Lawrence’s presence on the AFC team makes more sense considering he’s a quarterback for a team that made the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
Huntley and the Ravens were eliminated by the Cincinnati Bengals in the wildcard round after starting Lamar Jackson was sidelined with a knee injury. A late fumble from Huntley was returned for a touchdown and sealed the Ravens’ fate.

Pro Football Talk editor-in-chief Michael David Smith was one of many who poked fun at the NFL
The Pro Bowl was reformatted this season after years of fan complaints about the All-Star Game’s competitiveness. To avoid injury-prone NFL stars playing at half speed, the 2023 Pro Bowl will focus on various skill contests and non-contact flag football.
Despite the reformatting, the selection process is still determined by a combination of votes from fans, coaches and players. And due to injuries to several AFC quarterbacks, Huntley received a Pro Bowl nod in 2022 despite his limited playing time behind Jackson.
“Congratulations to Tyler Huntley on making it to the Pro Bowl after a season in which he started four games and rushed for 658 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions,” tweeted Michael David Smith, editor-in-chief of Pro Football Talk. sarcastic.
“And congratulations to the NFL for making the Pro Bowl even more of a joke.”
‘Tyler Huntley did the Pro Bowl?’ asked former NFL wide receiver Brandon Stokley. “He had 2 passing TDs and 3 interceptions. He started 4 games and played in 5 games. What are we doing??? Being a Pro Bowler isn’t what it used to be. Time to get done with the Pro Bowl.’
Former NFL wide receiver Brandon Stokley said Huntley’s pick was proof the Pro Bowl “isn’t what it used to be.”
