The 2018 Pro Bowl Rosters were released this evening. They contained seven Chargers, six rookies, five golden domers, and a partridge in a pear tree. Use this thread to debate the relative merits of those chosen and those who were not.
One AFC wild-card contender loses two defenders for the year in a shutout victory, while another loses its starting halfback. The rest of the playoff field suffers a variety scrapes and sprains, but fortunately nothing that should linger into January.

Remember the tight ends? Tennessee fans may struggle to recall the identities of the last two standing. The Lions injury report may well be longer than their actual team roster, and the Chiefs and Chargers both have concerns heading into potentially the season's most pivotal Thursday night clash.

Former FO writer J.J Cooper is still at his day job over at Baseball America, and he looks here into the question of whether Kyler Murray should play baseball or football. Basically, compared to someone like Jeff Samardzija, playing the quarterback position changes the numbers significantly. Quarterbacks get paid more than other positions, and they last longer. So Cooper's estimate is that Murray would make more money and make it sooner if he declared for the NFL draft instead of joining the Oakland A's after Oklahoma's season is over.
