cam newtonI’m not down at the Senior Bowl this week, so you won’t have to see any posts of shirtless players or descriptions of their bodies here. Instead I’m still in the lab cooking up some improvements for the site going into 2012 and beyond.

Anyways, yesterday I got the news that the ICON and Entertainer Cam Newton is headed to the Pro Bowl. Is it deserved? Probably not. But who really cares. The Pro Bowl doesn’t mean anything anymore. For goodness sakes isn’t Vince Young a 2x Pro Bowler?

Here are the details of Killa Cam’s Pro Bowl bid:

Cam Newton is headed to Hawaii. With Eli Manning and the New York Giants punching their Super Bowl ticket Sunday with a win at San Francisco in the NFC championship game, Newton is expected to take Manning’s spot on the NFC team in the Pro Bowl on Jan. 29 in Honolulu. Newton, who broke Peyton Manning’s rookie passing record, was the NFC’s first alternate at quarterback behind Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers, New Orleans’ Drew Brees and Manning, who were voted in. Newton, the former Auburn QB who was the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, will join two Panthers teammates in Hawaii — receiver Steve Smith and center Ryan Kalil.
