Dallas Clark in seven NFL seasons has been one of the Indianapolis Colts' top offensive players, and a huge reason for their success. What he never has been is a Pro Bowl player.
Colts President Bill Polian said that needs to change.
Clark, who has caught 38 passes for 485 yards and three touchdowns this season, had a 27-yard touchdown reception in the Colts' 42-6 victory over the St. Louis Rams. It was the sort of play Polian said Clark has made almost routine during his NFL career, and on his weekly radio show Monday, Polian said Clark should make the first Pro Bowl appearance of his seven-year career.
“If he doesn't go to the Pro Bowl, we'll have to have an investigation,” Polian said with a laugh on his radio show on 97.1 Hank FM in Indianapolis. “We'll have to get the Supreme Court involved like Bush v. Gore or something. The bottom line is the balloting I'm told began Monday on NFL.com, so vote early and often for No. 44, Dallas Clark.
“He deserves it among many others, but he's the most deserving because of all of our great players he's the only one who has not gone.”
