Peyton Manning and Adrian Peterson may have been obvious selections for the AFC and NFC Pro Bowl rosters, which were announced last night.

But, to many, the same could be said of Richard Sherman and Alfred Morris.

And yet the Seahawks cornerback and Redskins rookie running back were left off the roster entirely, leading a group of snubbed players and resulting in a series of shocked, angry Tweets.

Tim Tebow as a Jet

Because Mark Sanchez sucks, he was benched in favor of Greg McElroy, with reports then surfacing that Tebow - offended over being passed over for the gig - told Rex Ryan not to use him at all in the game.

Not even in the Wildcat formation for which his skill set is supposedly made.
