Don’t rule out a Pro Bowl nod for the Cincinnati Bengals star (as an alternate).

Success brings attention. That’s always been true in the NFL, and for this Cincinnati Bengals team, a couple of steps in the right direction will equal some individual recognition for a man that plays what might be the most recognizable position in all of sports.

Now, you know how Pro Bowl voting works (or All-Star voting in any of the major sports leagues). Fans vote for players on their teams, names they recognize, and guys that are popular. Sure, there are guys who deserve to go to the Pro Bowl every season, Patrick Mahomes for example, but can we make the argument that Joe Burrow can capture the imaginations of the NFL and wiggle his way into a Pro Bowl nod? We absolutely can!

Now, will it happen? Well of course no one knows the answer to that. Here’s the scenario in the minds of some of the Stripe Hype staff though (some of the other staff members totally disagree).

Joe Burrow has an amazing season. He keeps the Cincinnati Bengals competitive all year, but the playoffs are no longer an option sometime during the last month of the season. For his efforts, he earns a Pro Bowl nod but as an alternate. He takes the place of the quarterback that leads his team to a Super Bowl berth or maybe one that can’t play due to injury.
