EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. -- Jets wide receiver Robby Anderson looked like a Pro Bowler with his big performance on Sunday. But he looked small when he turned to the TV cameras and started begging for votes.
It's unfortunate, but that plea stole some of the spotlight from Anderson's six-catch, 146-yard, two-touchdown performance in Sunday's 35-27 loss to the Carolina Panthers. One of his touchdown catches was a dazzling display of athleticism. The other one was a testament to his football smarts and his chemistry with quarterback Josh McCown.
But after that catch -- a 54-yarder in the third quarter -- the 24-year old found one of Fox TV's cameras and said, "How about you vote for me for the Pro Bowl man, please?"
