George Pickens has had a tremendous two weeks. Since Mason Rudolph took over as the starting quarterback, the former second-round pick has 11 receptions for 326 yards and two touchdowns.

His overall stat-line for the season is also quite remarkable, as well. Pickens is 12th in the NFL in receiving yards (1,140) but is only 29th in catches (63). His 18.1 average yards per reception is second in the NFL only to Brandon Aiyuk of the San Francisco 49ers, and his 22 receptions of 20+ yards rank fifth in the NFL.

Despite that, Pickens did not earn a spot on the 2024 AFC Pro Bowl team, and he took to his Instagram story to voice his displeasure.

Pickens posted a blank screen, and in the bottom left corner wrote “F the prow Bowl.”

One can imagine that if Pickens gets a full year with competent quarterback play in a better offensive scheme, he will, indeed, get the coveted Pro Bowl nod.
