NFL: Pro Bowl-NFC Practice Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

How many Pro Bowls does it take for the NFL to learn how to spell Kyle Juszcuzyk Juszczczyk Juicecheck Juczcyczyk Juszczyk’s name? Two, apparently. Last year, the fullback made the Pro Bowl with the Baltimore Ravens, and his AFC jersey spelled his name wrong.

It was spelled “Juszcyzyk,” something that the Ravens noted on Twitter at the time. And now, a year later, it’s the 49ers who are pointing out that, yes, this time the NFL got it right! On his NFC jersey, his name is spelled properly, you know, giving him all of that respect.

Me, I cheated and just added his name into my web browser’s dictionary, so any misspellings of the name get underlined in red. I know how it’s spelled but sometimes well ... things happen.

I’m happy for Jushizczizk, and all. He was a really good fullback this past season -- overpaid by some metrics, but I think most people would like to see Juhszczzyk back for another season, especially one where he’s healthy. The 49ers paid Joshyzcyk big money to be an offensive weapon, and now they have the right man to get him the ball in Jimmy Garoppolo.

So here’s to a good Pro Bowl for Joozechzczky, he’s earned it.
