Raiders’ Josh Jacobs Blasted Pro Bowl Games: ‘Am I Missing Something?’

Share

The NFL created a new format for this year’s Pro Bowl, featuring a few game days and skills competitions culminating in a 7-on-7 flag football game to cap off the All-Star festivities.

But not everyone seemed happy with the change of pace as the rest of the NFL world prepares to watch the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles meet in the Super Bowl. Los Vegas Raiders running back Josh Jacobs was one of those who criticized the format.

«This is stupid,» Jacobs said, via The Athletic.

The star running back would follow in a tweet, saying «Man send us on vacation and call it a day.»

Buffalo Bills long snapper Reid Ferguson disagreed with Jacobs’ comment.

«I don’t get your point here,» he tweeted about Jacobs’ comment. «You earned the right to go there, cash a Pro Bowl check, and you also knew what the Pro Bowl had become.

«If it’s so ‘stupid’, forget the Vegas weekend. Am I missing something?»

Jacobs earned his second Pro Bowl selection from his caretaker and it was the first time he was named to the First Team All-Pro team. He led the NFL with 1,653 rushing yards. He added 12 touchdowns on the ground as well.
