You know it's bad when guys that most non-hardcore fans are starting. My dad, who's a football fan, but not really into it other than the Eagles, had never even heard of Geno Atkins or Eric Weddle, both of who were in the starting lineup for the AFC's defense. I also find it stupid that it's the week before the Super Bowl. They wouldn't have to get as many replacement players if it was after the Super Bowl. The list of players who are in the Super Bowl that are ineligible for the Pro Bowl is pretty large- Tom Brady, Eli Manning, Wes Welker, Rob Gronkowski, Logan Mankins, Brian Waters, Jason Piere-Paul, Vince Wilfork, and Matthew Slater. That way there wouldn't be as many replacement players playing. For the record, there were 25 replacement players.
