To simply answer the question, Kyler Murray was better? Or that's the most logical explanation that might be there to offer. Prior to this, Brady, now with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was a 14-time Pro Bowler, but come Monday, he was one of the big-name snubs. That does come as a surprise as Green Bay Packers' Aaron Rodgers, Seattle Seahawks' Russell Wilson and Arizona Cardinale' Kyler Murray were the quarterbacks who made the list.

The news of his snub came as a stinging blow with fans taking to social media to voice their opinion. "I love Kyler Murray, but he hasn’t been better than Tom Brady this year and that’s just simply a fact. He shouldn’t be on the NFC pro bowl roster. It should be Rodgers, Wilson & Brady. TB12 is better in almost every statistical category. It’s all good... Brady plays for rings," read one of the tweets.



 

"tom brady has more touchdowns and less turnovers with a better record than kyler murray and didn’t make the pro bowl lmaooooo what a joke," a comment read. "HOW THE F**K IS KYLER FUCKING MURRAY IN THE PRO BOWL OVER TOM BRADY?!!?!?" seconded another fan.

"the pro bowl voting a joke. @nfl fix the following and then we can talk James Robinson >>>> Josh Jacobs Buckner >>> Campbell Calvin Ridley > DK & Jefferson Wyatt Teller > Decastro Tom Brady > Kyler Tannehill > Deshaun Watson Garrett Bolles > Orlando Brown Tonyan > Evan Engram," one of the fans said.

"#KylerMurray has been having a fantastic season, but both #DrewBrees and #TomBrady have been a bit better. If you disqualify Brees due to time missed to injury, Brady should have been the 3rd NFC QB to make the #ProBowl," wrote a fan. "Tom Brady should have made the Pro Bowl over Kyler Murray and that it simply a FACT," remarked another.



 

 

 



 

 

 



 

 



 

 

 



 

NBC's football talk reckoned that Murray's speed was probably one of the main reasons he pipped Brady. The running ability was seen as an advantage, but the 43-year-old former Patriots man still has one of the best records. Brady is third in passing touchdowns with 32. He’s sixth in passer rating with 97.5, ahead of Murray. The site also added that his passing yardage of 3,886 has seen him take the second spot in the NFC.

Brady comes off a whopping performance against the Atlanta Falcons which the Bucs won 31-27. They can clinch a playoff spot if they win against the Detroit Lions on Saturday, December 26, and that would be running in Brady's mind than the Pro Bowl list.
