Pro Bowl statistics: Leon Washington excels

I cover the Seattle Seahawks, and my occupation requires that on this evening — Jan. 27 — I recite the performance of the half a dozen members of the team who participated in the most meaningless of all the professional all-star games in American professional sports. Except for lacrosse. And lingerie football. Those leagues may have all-star games that I am unaware of, and if they do, those all-star games may be more meaningless than the Pro Bowl, and if that is the case, my sincerest apologies. But until proven otherwise, I will continue to believe the NFL’s Pro Bowl scrapes the bottom of the barrel when it comes to a showcase. And here’s the performance of the half a dozen Seahawks selected to appear in the Pro Bowl:


Seahawks Leon Washington had a 92-yard kickoff return in the game, one of four kickoffs he returned and four punts.

Seahawks Russell Wilson completed eight of 10 passes he threw, three of those passes resulted in touchdowns.

Seahawks Marshawn Lynch rushed four times for 21 yards and a touchdown, and while that might not sound like all that much, it was more than anyone else rushed in the game.

Free safety Earl Thomas picked off a pass, and had one solo tackle and an assist in the game.

Left tackle Russell Okung started the game for the NFC, so did center Max Unger and there were no stats for those two because, well, there are no stats for offensive linemen.
