Thomas made it into the Pro-Bowl based on his long reputation of being a solid line-man. It had nothing to do with his play this season. Thomas made a ton of mistakes compared to the Thomas we used to know.
There is no way his play in 2013,deserves a pro-bowl nod. T.J. Ward is a Cleveland Browns player who truly had a pro-bowl caliber season and he was over-looked in the voting.
Ward’s performance in 2013 was far better than the performance of Joe Thomas. The Browns couldn’t protect the quarterback, they couldn’t run the football and Thomas is one of the guys responsible for the offensive line break downs.
So what do the fans do? They blindly over-looked his shortcomings and vote him to another pro-bowl appearance. There is no way you can justify Thomas having a better season than T.J. Ward.
Ward played solid defense and his interception in the game against the Buffalo Bills helped the team win the game. He made plenty of tackles and he has played hard in every game.
His hit on Gronkowski on the New England game helped the Browns be competitive there and his talent is among the best in the defensive secondary this season.
The Pro-Bowl is one of the biggest jokes in NFL football today. There is no way a guy like Thomas should have made it over a guy like T.J. Ward.
