It only seems fitting that insult has been added to an already painful season of Raiders football. Last week Sebastian Janikowski received the fan’s nod for the AFC Pro Bowl roster. This week Jano got an official snub from the league as the players and coaches put Cleveland Browns kicker Phil Dawson on a plane to Hawaii after the season has ended.
Janikowski has been snubbed once again received a Pro Bowl snub. The fans wanted to see the greatest kicking show on Earth but their voice only counts for a third of the vote.
Never mind that Seabass is on the verge of completing yet another historic season. On the year Janikowski has just three misses in 34 attempts with not one of those miscues coming from within 49 yards.
That pretty much means the Raiders are almost guaranteed three points every time they cross midfield. In fact Janikowski has also been Oakland’s entire offense for two weeks running now. Not exactly something to brag about but it proves how consistent and clutch he’s been all year long.
Making matters worse is that no Raiders were named to the AFC squad. Both Janikowski and Marcel Reece are listed as alternates so there is a chance someone will rep the Silver and Black in Hawaii.
