Jared Goff, Derek Carr named as Pro Bowl replacements

New, comments

California has plenty of Pro Bowl quarterback possibilities heading into 2018.

The 2018 Pro Bowl is six days away, and the close of the conference championship games means we know the Super Bowl teams. Those two teams will not participate in the Pro Bowl, and that usually means quite a few replacements. For this year’s game, it has resulted in Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff and Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr getting added to the rosters.

Goff is replacing Carson Wentz, while Carr is replacing Tom Brady. Wentz would not have played regardless of the Super Bowl because of his torn ACL. That being said, it’s kind of cool to see Goff, the No. 1 pick of the 2016 NFL Draft, replacing Wentz, the No. 2 pick of the 2016 NFL Draft.

Carr is coming off a rough 2017 season. Football Outsiders ranked him No. 12 in DYAR and No. 13 in DVOA. In more traditional stats, he ranked No. 22 in QBR and No. 19 in rating. Carr is the second replacement, after Alex Smith replaced Philip Rivers. Ben Roethlisberger is the other AFC quarterback.

Jimmy Garoppolo was obviously never going to land a Pro Bowl berth this year, but with a full season coming up working with Kyle Shanahan, it would not be surprising if he was in the running a year from now. Super Bowl players don’t play in the Pro Bowl, but they still can earn the roster spot to later decline.

With that in mind, of Jimmy Garoppolo, Jared Goff, and Derek Carr, which quarterback will be voted to more Pro Bowl berths from 2018 onward?


From 2018 onward, who will be voted onto the most Pro Bowl rosters?
