It is what it is.
Green Bay Packers center Jeff Saturday is one of those controversial selections this season. He had five Pro Bowls on his resume before 2012, but he was benched last week in favor of Evan Dietrich-Smith. The change came in an effort to improve the running game. Saturday, a 14-year veteran, had played well in the passing game, but he just doesn't have the same drive on running downs.
"I am disappointed for Josh Sitton; I think he should be there. It is disappointing for me, for him. I would love to be able to pass it to him."
"Proud of all three guys who went to Pro Bowl. With Saturday, we won't apologize for any kind of honor like that," McCarthy said Thursday in his news conference.
Again, the voting process has its flaws. It is what it is.
