Pro Bowl Snub-O-Meter: Adrian Amos

CHICAGO, IL - AUGUST 11: Adrian Amos
CHICAGO, IL - AUGUST 11: Adrian Amos /

Was Adrian Amos a Pro Bowl snub? We examine.

If there was a position where Pro Football Focus would probably lose their minds when looking at who made the Pro Bowl, it would be safety.  The seventh, eighth, and sixteenth rated NFC safeties made the Pro Bowl. Chicago Bears safety Adrian Amos is second (in the NFL) in those rankings.

If Pro Football Focus grades were the only thing that counted, the Bears would have multiple players in the Pro Bowl, but that’s not how this works.

Amos has tallied 56 tackles, which is a solid number for a safety, but, despite having solid pass coverage, he’s only managed three passes defended. He did have a monstrous pick six that went for 90 yards, but that’s his only interception of the season.

Landon Collins has nearly doubled Amos’ tackles on the season, Amos also has less tackles, interceptions and passes defended than Earl Thomas, and the same also is true for Malcolm Jenkins.

This one is another easy debate. Amos has his PFF grade going for him, but he doesn’t beat any of the tree safeties in statistical production, and with names like Earl Thomas and Landon Collins, reputation is also going to be a factor. Amos has been solid all season long and has made a strong case that he should be paired with Eddie Jackson as the Bears’ safeties moving forward, but that does not mean he should have landed a Pro Bowl spot this year.
