The Buffalo Bills found out on Monday that five players were selected to the Pro Bowl this year after the team’s 11-3 start has already resulted in the AFC East title.
Josh Allen, Tremaine Edmunds, Tre’Davious White, Stefon Diggs and Andre Roberts are all in, but it’s the name that wasn’t in the group that’s sure to leave a bad taste in the mouths of Bills Mafia.
And rightfully so.
Bills safety Jordan Poyer is having the best season of his career. He leads the team with 117 tackles and two forced fumbles, and has helped fill the void left by Lorenzo Alexander as one of the team’s captains.
This has caused a stir, especially as Poyer had been getting more & more hype this past season and seemed like a shoe-in...
From the Buffalo News earlier this month:
There's a growing sentiment that Poyer, once and for all, is on track to become a Pro Bowl and/or All-Pro selection for the first time in four seasons with the Bills and eight in the NFL. As of Thursday, he ranked first among safeties in the AFC with 102,525 fan votes.
So you get the idea, disappointing to say the least. And no one was more pissed about it than his #1 fan, wife & model Rachel Bush:
As for Poyer himself, he hasn't said much on the subject but she's got that covered, too.
No matter how he feels, hopefully he can rest a little easier knowing his wife's got back no matter what. Pardon me, got *his back no matter what. And goddamnit I'm going to say it… they are #CoupleGoals. Say what you will about the frivolity of the Pro Bowl but that's someone you want in your corner. And fine, also while I'm at it she is #ButtGoals for me, too.
