Brandon Moore Named to AFC Pro Bowl Roster

Posted by Randy Lange on January 22, 2012 – 9:34 pm

Updated, 10:07 p.m. ET

Brandon Moore and the Jets got a small bit of good news tonight on this NFL Championship Weekend. They learned that Moore is finally an all-star.

The NFL has announced that Moore, the Jets’ long-time right guard, a second alternate at the AFC’s guard position, has been named to the conference’s Pro Bowl roster, replacing Brian Waters of the New England Patriots, who are playing in Super Bowl XLVI in two weeks.

Moore will be joining fellow Jets O-linemen Nick Mangold and D’Brickashaw Ferguson and cornerback Darrelle Revis in Honolulu, Hawaii, this week for Sunday’s Pro Bowl Game, to be played at Aloha Stadium.

Moore, who just finished his ninth season as a Jet and his eighth as their starting guard, has been one of the unsung heroes of the Green & White line.

But in part with the support of head coach Rex Ryan, who has called him the best right guard in the game, and in part because of his high consistency of performance, Moore joins “Nick and Brick” plus Alan Faneca as Jets O-linemen have now claimed 10 Pro Bowl berths in the past four seasons.

Moore becomes the fourth Jets guard to reach all-star status, joining Bob Mischak of the New York Titans (1960-62) and Dave Herman (1968-69) as AFL all-stars and Faneca, an AFC starting guard for the Jets in 2008 and ’09.

Moore’s ironman qualities are well-known among line aficionados. He has started 121 consecutive regular-season games since 2004, the most among all active NFL guards, and his 121 straight games played is second among all active guards behind only the 124 of Tennessee’s Jake Scott.

Then an independent NFL analysis service determined that Moore gave up no sacks or hits on quarterback Mark Sanchez this season.

    Congrats to Brandon Moore. Well deserved…………………………Now all that’s left of this year is a coronation for Mr. Martin and Seeing the BigAnts beat up Tom Bundchen one more time……………………….Jets your big brothers have shown you how to beat this man……………………You need a passrush…….Rex got the first game wrong……………………………Had to mention that……………….Leave the predictions to Ms Cleo Rex……….That would be huge growth spurt, for you, going forward.

    Again, not to beat a dead horse, but I stated a fact a couple of posts back that nine of the past ten Super Bowl winners were teams that had that “elite” QB and a “dynamic” offense. Well guess what? There will be still another “elite” QB holding the Lombardi trophy after this years game. You can call the NYG-SF game a defensive battle if you wish. But you have to look at the whole body of work, not just one game here or there. The fact is, once again there will be at least ONE elite QB in the SB, this year there happens to be TWO! Mr T, you know what you need to do.

    Congrats to Brandon. Kind of strange how we can have 3 of 5 guys from the O-Line in Hawaii and seemimngly have such deficiencies there. There’s only one team I would not root for against the Gints and they’ll be playing them. I really thought the Pats would look better than they did…definitely beatable. I guess since our organization is so spin-centric here’s the spin heading into the SB: we were the last team to outplay the Gints (and lose). Hopefully Cruz will be catching the game winner with seconds left this time. Brings to mind the need to can Plax, maybe an elite QB can make him productive again, Mark sure couldn’t. Heart goes out to that Cundiff kid…that’s why you get the big bucks, got to deliver!

    (along with the openings created the last three years with players from the Super Bowl teams being replaced on the Pro Bowl rosters, now the week before the big game)

    Why is this comment necessary? Brandon Moore has played his heart out and has been an unsung hero and you can’t leave it at that? He deserved to go.

    Cimini’s naivete, if that’s what is (it could also be intentional insincerity), amazes me. Today he expresses curiosity about all of Rex’s recent admissions of failure, saying it’s strange that Rex would talk this way and make 2012 a referendum on him as Jets HC. Yeah, that WOULD be strange unless Woody already told him that 2012 IS a referendum on him as Jets HC. And knowing Rex, who “always says what’s in his head, it surely is amazing” to quote the Byrds’ “Just a Season,” his immediate response to Woody’s decree is to start talking about it publicly. That doesn’t concern me very much. What does is that he either becomes a real HC with a real QB and a real chance to take the Jets to where the Giants are going in 2 weeks or he gets lost.

    Congrats to Moore this was long overdue.
    Now lets get to yesterday. This is just too much to watch. Congrats to the Giants they got the job done and received help with a bad whistle and to fumbles. Same can be said for the Pats. Both teams that won should’ve lost so at least my miserable season continues to get worse and now these next two weeks and after the Giants beat the Pats it will even get worse. And we can all thank this to one play two missed tackles on Cruz way back on 12/24 as we were in the lead and control of a 7-3 game. Not only have the Giants earned and deserve where they are we put them on their road to the SB.
    When will it be the Jets turn?

    A good pt from Cimini’s piece, just for balance: “After listening to Ryan and Johnson talk about how Sparano’s offense suits Sanchez, I can help but wonder: Did they draft him 5th overall to be a game manager? Most quarterbacks in their 4th year are allowed to cut loose, but MS is being reined in.” Exactly, and exactly why I think “Mark” may not be “the starter” in 2012 or may end up on the bench 4 or 5 games in. Watching Mr T and Rex play this game over MS is kind of like watching John Ford’s classic THE INFORMER remade with football, whereby in this case 2 guys drive themselves to ruin over their inability to confront a dirty secret — in this case, that they probably picked the wrong QB and should start viewing him more realistically.

    scjoe, the way the 49ers played on O yesterday they wouldn’t have even been in it without the rain, which largely took away the pass. But Eli just kept throwing thru it, with no one aghast at his 60 or so dropbacks, and eventually won the game. joe, all yr Arte told me BAL would win because of Rice and D. But yesterday Rice was no factor, 1 RB is no match for an elite QB, and the D wasn’t about to hold NE to less pts than Flacco could put up. BAL played their best and NE played their worst with an injured Brady and NE still won, that’s what great teams do. Ira, it will be the Jets’ turn when the #1 Jet Fan isn’t content with Sanchez and Henne at QB but is instead livid at what an insult that would be to his fellow Jet fans in today’s NFL.

    Patriots are 3 pre Spygate and 0 post, I am hoping it stays that way…….Giants are playing as good or better D than Ravens and Patriots gave up 300yds to Flacco and 20 pts to that terrible Ravens O. I’ve said it from the beginning that picking GQ was a huge reach. That being said, it will mean starting over and at least another 5yr wait if they go with another young gun. Or hope and pray that some talented vet decides he wants to deal with this mess. We know what GQ is. He’s the horse they’re ridin’ so give him what he needs…I don’t care, JUST WIN SOMETHING ALREADY.

    Hey Spicer.. At any rate I don’t think this Peyton thing will ever happen. I think the Jets are commited to Sanchez for at least one more year. If the are smart the will have a viable backup option for next season either with McElroy as #2 or a veteran so that he is pushed in camp and if and when he falters to pull him.. Do I think about having a Q/B that can hit Santonio on a dead run at 40 yards? You bet but it’s not going to happen, the backed tthe wrong horse, Sanchez is just not that Q/B USC highliglts or not

    64, we all were reading and hearing about the “it” factor.I never saw what they were talking about, even before one snap. I believe they were positioned to draft 16 back then. They could have had him or the kid in Tampa and kept they’re other picks. The experts on these sports stations just kill me….He had one year of college ball. It wasn’t his fault he took the money and ran……10 chances, I’d do it 10 times…………….But now he’s getting paid to get the job done. To whom much is given………

    IRA when will it be our turn? I guess it starts off with Woody J. 1. I like rex..but not as a HC. I like him more as a DC. 2. Mike T is a great cap guy but some of his picks can be questioned. This team always seem to pick up aging superstars or average players via FA or players with issues. That all starts upstairs. Look at the steelers on how they draft talent..new england…now you can add houston. They draft players that can play FOOTBALL. This team can make the next step. When do we get the next Clay Matthews, forte’s, Calvin Johnson’s and Mannings? That’s why we as Jets fans will always ask that question…when will it be our turn?

    Hey Joe.. The Ravens beat themselves, Evans thought he had a touch down and forgot to protect the ball and the kicker…. Brady had a rare bad game (for him) and the Pats defense stepped up big time to keep the Ravens under 20. The “elite” Q/B in this case had little influence on the win and in fact almost lost the game. The Pats defense won that game along of coarse with great coaching

  22. By Allan O'Dane on Jan 23, 2012 | Reply

    64 Tom..I have said that Rex thinks that the Jets are his 2000 Ravens with Dilfer at QB. Dilfer was a game Mgr. All he had to do was throw for 1 or 2 TDs don’t make mistakes and let the defense win the game. He wanted Sanchez to do the same. Just look at our AFC run Rex’s first year..same formula. But…We don’t have a Ray Lewis or Ed Reed on our defense. No outstanding pass rush. Rex used exotic blitzes to cover our weak front line. Imagine if we had a pass rush like the Giants with our corners? Imagine what our linebacking corps would be with a pass rush like that? It all starts upfront. Is Sanchez the answerat qb? Only time will tell…but the clock is ticking

    I will say it for the thousandth time we had a team built to win and TanWoody and Rex blew it big time by going after a one year wonder in college Sanchize-Not instead of trading for Cutler a 26 year old 2 time pro bowler and proven winner. Put him on our team the last two years and we would have won the SB and I have no doubt about that.
    Kleckofan great observation 3 O-Line pro bowlers and we have an O-Line problem….no we have a major QB problem…team turmoil starts and ends with Sanchize-Not!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    The minute the Giants beat Dallas in week 17 I saw this SB coming. The way this season has unfolded it was inevitable. What are the odds that teams #31 and 32 on my list of favorites make it in the same year? For the second time in the past few years to boot. I guess most Jet fans will be chosen the lesser of two evils. For me the Giants winning would be the lesser of two evils because they come in at 31 while that NE team comes in a distant 32. When you have a solid team, an elite QB and you get all the breaks that both those teams got yesterday you can’t miss.

    64 Tom you’re making some good points. The biggest mistake we made was drafting a game manager. However Mark has a chance to prove us wrong if he can progress beyond astronomical proportions (which really isn’t that likely, but I’m willing to give him a chance). We’ll see how everything unfolds.

  28. By scjoe on Jan 23, 2012 | Reply

    64, great point about Sanchez being reined in under Sparano. But it looked to me like he was reined in this year as well with the play calling I witnessed. At what point do rein out your “franchise QB?” This is going to be his 4th season with more then 60 NFL starts. How do you, as an organization even make a statement like “rein him in?” I know I will catch some heat from that guy who uses multiple screen names, but my point is valid just the same.

    With nothing else but the draft to look forward to and so much speculation about where the Jets go at #16- OT, OLB, WR, S, RB. Here is a name to watch for should there be any question about Ellis being incarcerated, Dontari Poe the 6’4″ 340 lb DT out of Memphis. If you are going to run the 3-4 that stud NT is the main ingredient and that position looks just a little bit iffy right now. If Ellis will not be available look for Poe’s name at 16.

    This comment is me ranting. New England, going to the Super Bowl for what, the 7th time. The Giants, for what, their 5th appearance. Jets Super Bowl appearances, one. To complicate matters, the Jets are what 0-4 in their last AFC Championship Game appearances. So, who is going to win a Super Bowl ring, RB Ware, OT McKenzie and P Weatherford, all Giants, or RB Woodhead, DE S.Ellis and DB Ihedigbo, all Patriots. I don’t care about Brandon Moore making the Pro Bowl roster. I don’t care about Curtis Martin and his dash for the Hall of Fame. Football is a team game and the team we all root for, the New York Jets, has won nothing, absolutely nothing in a long, long, time. The Jets are indeed the little brothers in the NY/NJ football world.

It’s not the kids fault but you get a lot of angry fans and players in the locker room when you do this. Ryan is a monumental failure and personally I absolutely can’t stand hearing him open his mouth anymore and guess what everyone else including his players are TUNING HIM OUT.

    Look at the 4 teams yesterday all of them drafted and developed their own players. There are a few FA’s sprinkled on evey team but the teams are built in the draft. The team philosophy with the Jets is the quick fix there is no way you go to the SB several times and consistantly have a winning organization with the TanWoody philosphy it doesn’t work.

    Yeah, let’s see here – the two teams with the Pro Bowl quarterbacks are going to the Super Bowl because they severely outplayed their competition. It took a dropped TD pass, poor clock management and a missed field goal (all in the last minute) to get the Patriots in and a fumble on a punt return in overtime to get the Giants in. I guess we just can’t say enough about how dominant both Brady and Manning were yesterday – I am sure the Ravens and 49ers defenses are just in awe how badly Brady and Manning took them apart.

    Eli gets battered and beaten and comes out a winner and is going to the SB.
    Sanchez get battered and beaten and checks down constantly or throws a pick.
    Eli has more toughness in his pinky than MS has shown. And by the way, with Mike T., Woody, Rex and even LT going on the radio and TV, why is MS hiding in his hole on Southern California? He has got to be a man and go on either ESPN or WFAN and stand up for himself. Very disappointing! The longer he waits to say something, the weaker he looks. It hurts when I say it but maybe Pete Carroll was right!

    scjoe- don’t know about Poe but don’t disagree w nose being v.important…when Jenks went down it was the biggest factor in the decline of our D (pass and rush). Everyone fell all over themselves for that nose out of Baylor last yr, then never heard a thing about him (like our Ellis). T64- the media seems to agree w my take that Woody is in denial; read the NYT piece on it. I say don’t have a presser if you’re just going to have to lie…there’s no way he should be giving an iota of backing to any of the Big 3 (Rex, Tanny, Mark). He should be in his office writing up drafts of termination notices and letting them no they are a poor season away from being history…not making excuses.

    GaryC, there is absolutely nothing wrong with Pouha as a NT except the fact he is 33 years old and he is an UFA. Even if he is resigned he can not play every snap of every game at that all important position, and aside from Ellis there is not another prototypical NT on the roster who can tie up blockers to free those OLBs. kleckofan made the point about the defense taking a big hit when Jenkins went down, I agree. That is basically my logic on selecting Poe at that spot.

I knew Spicer would be one of ‘em ’cause I suspect he doesn’t watch the games, just reads stats. But Brady was clearly limited in his upper body which, duh, makes it hard to throw which is why he didn’t throw over 10 yds. Eli just kept throwing into the wind and rain while Smith just kept running, and it was Eli who threw the key TD to Manningham. It’s not all about stats even for elite QBs, it’s about having the skill, vision, and toughness to win the big games. Tell me honestly you think Sanchez is close to that.

    Frank, special thanks to you for your honesty about Rex. Several of my posts on him haven’t made it to the site this yr, I suppose because of personally insulting language on my part. So trying to keep it civil, I’ll just say that he has very few of the qualities that a successful HC needs. He has considerable imagination on D, that’s about it. He’ll say anything to keep from admitting a mistake, though thankfully I suspect that era is coming to an end, as Woody will take action to correct those mistakes, though I’m not sure they’ll be the wisest actions. (See my post on the story ahead about today’s Jets as the mid-60s to mid-80s Giants.) And yes, GaryC, I doubt there’s much Love of Rex going on now around the NFL among the better players.

    Congrats to B. Moore well deserved better late than never. Russell go back to the hole you came from Curtis deserves everything he can get and that includes your respect. HOF the first time he was up for it, not the second or any time later. Best Player to ever to wear a green & white Jersey and a absolute class act.

    All this talk about elite QB’s ruling the nfl games is so overrated. That’s just not the truth . 3 out of the 4 teams in the conference championship games are considered not to have an elite QB. MANNING is emerging as one right before our eyes. Flacco’s 1 stripped pass away from winning that game and 1 missed FG away from going into OT.Alex smith making big plays all day was more then enough to win the game if the TO by STplay doesn’t lose it for SAN FRAN.Brady had a terrible game and PATS still won. So i don’t want to here about elite QB’S and what we have to do next year. The better team will almost always win.

    Joe, no one is arguing that teams with top caliber QB’s will typically win the Super Bowl however let’s look at some facts: Twice, 49er DB’s collided with one another on routine interceptions. The Giants averaged 3.9 yards per play – not exactly an offensive performance for the ages. Two 49er fumbles GAVE the Giants 10 of their 20 points. Manning had a 55.2 completion %. Between Gore and Hunter, those two running backs averaged 5.35 yards per play – with a running game going that well, Smith should not have had to throw that much. You can also ask what happened to the great Michael Crabtree – he virtually disappeared yesterday. Yes, the Giants won however it was hardly due to the play of their star QB – it was easily there for the 49ers.

    kleckofan/GaryC, have to disagree just a little about Phil Taylor. He started for the Browns as a rook as a 4-3 DT and he had four sacks. So, he was not exactly a pussycat by any stretch.

    Chicago Bob, the rain in SF completely changed the nature of the game. The Giants woulda blown the 49ers out on a dry field and completion percentage on a game-by-game basis isn’t always the mark of an elite QB. The mark of an elite QB, all stats and specific skills aside, is the ability to take a game in his hands, take charge of it, refuse to accept defeat, and have the overall skills — mental, physical, and emotional — to win the game. Brady and Eli showed that in spades on Sunday and Flacco and Smith didn’t, and that’s undeniable. And what’s even more undeniable is that the guy we have at QB now hasn’t shown that kind of gravitas even in his best games, he’s merely managed a victory with the great help of the entire Jet team.

    Chicago Bob, Dont pay attention to Joe he is like my 4 year old. He cant admit when he is wrong about anything. If you cant see that the Giants won the game cause they got 2 fumbles in the red zone to give them half there points. Than you know nothing about the game. My wife said the 49ers gave them the game with those 2 fumbles now if a woman who is not a fan of the game can easily point that out. ANY guy on this site who can not admit to it NEEDS to stop watching football cause they dont understand it & they never will.

    cgb, go look back and take a look at the last ten SB winners and see who and what their QBs were. You will find that the vast majority were teams who had that elite QB. That is no coincidence.

    Bob BILL PARCELLS is on record STATING one -third OF ALL GAMES ARE DETERMINED BY PENALITYS TURNOVERS AND SPECIAL TEAMS PLAY.ITS ALWAYS GOING TO HAPPEN. Your trying to predicate upon excues -INTURN IF BRADY WAS 100% HEALTHY he would have had 400 yards and 4tds OR if it was not raining the GIANTS WOULD HAVE WON BY MORE

    I think that the people who keep roaring about elite QBs, this and that, really need to learn more about randomness and chance. Have any of us ever thought that perhaps, most of these “Elite QBs” are only anointed after success, which might have partly come through conditions which they could not control? Surely, Roethlisberger might be considered elite today, but was he really when the Steelers beat the Seahawks? I don’t think so. People look at the “Elite QBs” today and act as if they’ve been like that since they entered the league. A very good question though, is where is Phillip River’s Rings? Now I don’t think the Jets should keep Sanchez, not because he’s not an “Elite QB”. I just simply don’t think he’s any good.

    Just like how I want a better punter, because i don’t think Conley is any good, i just want a better QB, and I really don’t think it’s hard to find a better one than Sanchez. Look at how guys like Cutler handle pressure, then look at Sanchez. Sanchez just don’t have the mental toughness to play unless his O-line plays beastly, after some thought, I don’t think he really regressed from last year, it’s just that there was too many flukes in his favor.

    Take pity on Spicer, joe, he’s down to strong-arming his wife into going public with her agreement with his opinions about football. That’s about as pathetic as it gets.

    I’m cracking up listning to if it wasn’t raining or if brady wasn’t hurt. Are u kidding me ??? SF defense was dominating that hole 2nd half and Frank gore was gashing the Giants D but there knucklehead OC kept going away from the run. Lee evans squeezes that ball like a man who’s catching the winning TD then the 2 teams with a running game and great D are in the SB. Both teams were very lucky and that’s that but I’m sorry Defense and great running game can still win championships. That is theeee perfect formula to win in January. Always was and always will be. Yes having a elite QB will make that easier but u must play D to win in the NFL just ask Peyton Manning

    Just want to congratulate all the Jet Pro Bowlers. They all significantly contribute and lead this team by example, which is the reason you get paid to play. Good job guys! I feel like a 50 million dollar QB should do more. Lots of credit for team wins and now that #6 has become a liability, the team sends away individuals who cannot accept the double standard. I think Mr. T needs to realize that you get paid to win, just like “Moneyball”. I will completely understand and appreciate a Mark Sanchez release and a rebuild. It’s time to overhaul the players who are underachieving. It absolutely makes me sick that Brady and the Pats are in the superbowl and the Jets front office is still trying to sell Mark Sanchez jerseys..

    danny, of course you need D and a running game but what you fail to mention about elite QBs is that even their mediocre games, like Brady and Eli played on Sunday, are better than the best games of mediocre QBs like Smith and Flacco. And when you factor in the leadership and guts of elite QBs vs mere “game managers,” the teams with the elite QBs almost always win. Row, I like your post because it dares to speak the unmentionable, which is cutting bait on Sanchez. I’d say it’s about 75% that MS doesn’t work out and is let go after next yr, but change is just very hard for some folks to deal with. Problem is when you’re running a huge organization like a pro football team, it’s change rapidly or die, and right now we’re dead in the water.

    Tom 64, “elite QBs is that even their mediocre games, like Brady and Eli played on Sunday, are better than the best games of mediocre QBs like Smith and Flacco” You might want to rething that one buddy Flacco significantly outplayed Brady in that game.

    I have a co-worker who is from Boston and is an avid Pats fan. I asked him what his honest opinion was on Sanchez. He said he loves Sanchez. The Patriots love Sanchez. They all hope that Sanchez stays with the Jest for the next 15 yrs as Rex has promised. Fact is that the Jets

    …biggest rival knows that as long as Rex & Sanchez are connected at the hip, the Patriots will continue to dominate the division. Keep talking Rex. You sound like the alcoholic that refuses to admit he has a problem. How many times do we have to listen to Rex’s post game “Obviously, we have to play better” speech. He can’t even put two sentences together that are informative and thoughtful. Her may be a good Defensive coach but he apparently has no clue what’s been going on on the other side of the line. Reminds me of when Rich Kotite was here. That’s how bad it looks to Jets fans…..and how good it looks to Patriots fans.

    Spicer, you either didn’t watch the Pats-Ravens game or you’re in terminal denial. Like I said, Flacco played one of the best games of his life…which still included a crippling pick at a key moment. Brady, CLEARLY INJURED, played one of his worst games…but still managed to win it. Of course, anyone who’d waste breath even arguing Flacco vs Brady is on another planet. Jet Blue, it’s not just Patriot fans who hate the Jets and love us being stuck with Rex and Sanchez. I watch football amidst hundreds of fans of all teams, including barmaids and waitresses, and they all think these two guys are a joke. The views on MS are particularly informed ’cause these folks know him from USC, but Rex they just recognize as the word Randy won’t print.

    Tom 64, 1 Nothing I saw told me Brady was hurt 2 Flacco outplayed Brady that day this is a FACT. I am not comparing the 2 just stating that he outplayed brady that day
