    I have the feeling that this is the first of many Pro Bowls for Kyle.

    Happy for him, but I think Warford should have gotten the invite instead. Warford is imo in play as offensive rookie of the year whereas Long isn't. :/

    Watching Kyle Long play reminds me a lot of watching Dan Dierdorf who played in St. Louis in 70's and into the early 80's. Very athletic, smart, quick and with a killer-attitude blocking. A solid OL like Long could be a foundation of our OL for many years to come.......it's not unusual for the good ones to play well into their mid-30's. Dan was a perennial Pro Bowl guy, and also was the NFL's Offensive Lineman of the Year multiple times - and he's in the Hall of Fame now. Kyle Long is a VERY special talent. Warford is a good player too, but I believe Long has the higher ceiling. BTW, Dan Dierdorf was played at different positions in his first few seasons (guard and tackle) but ended up a Hall of Fame tackle. I think Kyle could end up a tackle too.

    Kyle is a very humble guy. This experience (going to Hawaii and mingling with other players) will only help him in the future. Same with Alshon. Great job!!
