Christian McCaffrey is one of the best players in the NFL and is having a great season, but he's not going to the Pro Bowl.

Huh?

One of McCaffrey's former teammates is just as confused as we are and called out the NFL for the glaring oversight.

Christian McCaffrey Pro Bowl Snub

Greg Olsen, who played with McCaffrey on the Carolina Panthers from 2017-2019, knows first-hand how special the All-Pro running back is. Olsen was also a three-time Pro Bowler himself before retiring after the 2020 season and becoming a TV announcer, so he knows what he's talking about.

After missing significant time with injuries the last two seasons, McCaffrey is back to being one of the top players in the NFL this year. Now with the San Francisco 49ers, he's already racked up 1,550 yards from scrimmage (fifth-most) and 10 total touchdowns in 14 games this season.

It'd be one thing if McCaffrey was hurt, but since he's been healthy and productive all season there's no reasonable explanation for him missing the Pro Bowl. This isn't the first time he's been snubbed, either, as he was also passed over in 2018 when he tallied 1,965 scrimmage yards and 13 total touchdowns.

Olsen has a point: maybe the Pro Bowl selection process really is broken.
