The USB’s Fourth Annual TOILET BOWLERS AWARDS! (DEFENSE)

This weekend is Pro Bowl week in the NFL. Well, we here at THE Ultimate Sports Blog are sick and tired of only the “good” football players getting all the recognition at the end of the season. What about the guys who completely sucked this year? Where is the love for them? Where is their award show?

It’s right here people. THE USB is proud to announce the FOURTH annual “TOILET BOWLERS” awards! While these guys were probably about as far away from making the Pro Bowl as possible, they still have a place in my heart for the utter garbage they showcased on the football field this year. We don’t discriminate here at The USB. We believe the shitty guys should get just as much as attention (if not more) than the good football players. They are likely the reason their respective teams suck (you will see that there are NO members of either team playing in the Super Bowl on this list), and they should either be cut or given a fair warning this off-season.

So with no further ado…..
