Once agin, Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer was snubbed from a Pro Bowl nod. And his wife, Rachel Bush, isn’t too happy about it.
When the Bills announced that their only two Pro Bowlers this year were receiver Stefan Diggs and left tackle Dion Dawkins, many were perplexed at how Josh Allen, Micah Parsons and Poyer all missed out.
Rachel Bush took to Twitter to make a case that both Jordan Poyer and Parsons deserved the honor over their competition.
“Said it last year, going to say it again lol pro bowl should have the PROS in it. Enough of this voting nonsense. Jordan and Micah are the best. Simple facts. Can’t argue with stats. FIVE picks. Top graded coverage. Give me a damn break,” she wrote.

Other fans joined Rachel Bush in slamming the NFL over the Jordan Poyer Pro Bowl snub.
Yes, Jordan Poyer should be a Pro Bowler.
Other #Bills have solid case too.
That said, I think Poyer for All-Pro still strong and far greater honor.

Poyer is never gonna make a pro bowl. I really thought this season was his season. He’s been amazing. Maybe if he didn’t block 90% of Bills fans on Twitter we would have voted more. 😂

This. Is. A. Joke #BillsMafia

Rachel Bush is right: there’s no question that Jordan Poyer and Micah Hyde make up one of the most shut-sown safety duos in the entire NFL. And they’re a big reason why the team remains a contender in the AFC.
But I think when push comes to shove, Poyer is more focused on the marquee matchup with Bill Belichick and the Patriots this weekend than receiving personal recognition. The last time the two teams met, the Patriots came away with the W despite throwing the ball just three times in the windy Buffalo conditions.
As it stands, Jordan Poyer’s Bills sit one game behind the Patriots in the AFC East standings – with Sunday’s date in Foxborough adding some extra importance.
