2011 NFL Playoffs Expert Picks: Pro Bowl Results

The Pro Bowl is over, and it certainly didn’t start well for the Hoodie’s crew, as the NFC quickly jumped out to a 42-0 lead. At least he got to coach Matt Cassel again. Each of the AFC’s quarterbacks was picked at least once, contributing to six turnovers on the day. While we thought there […]
