I guarantee you can't name the quarterbacks going to the Pro Bowl

Every year the NFL Pro Bowl becomes more and more of a disgrace.  All the Patriots chosen are backing out.  None of the five quarterbacks selected are going--and how is it five, by the way?  Shouldn't there be the same number on each team?  Hmm... Maybe there aren't even teams anymore?  I honestly don't know.  I remember hearing something a few years ago about it no longer be AFC vs. NFC, and I think maybe there are captains who draft players like a schoolyard pickup game?  I'd look it up, but I don't care enough to find out.

The guy pictured above is one of the five QBs going.  I'm willing to bet most people don't know who he is, even with the photo.  Below is a screenshot of the sad list of quarterbacks who will be playing in the exhibition:

I could do some research and look up how not-Pro-Bowl-worthy their stats are, but I don't think this pathetic joke of a "game" is worth that much effort on my part.

UPDATE: So apparently I was wrong about some things--there are six QBs, and Russell Wilson who was originally chosen is going.  Amazingly nobody who read this knew or cared enough to tell me that, which further proves my point about how stupid the whole thing is.
