Typically, hearing from Kyle Long during a game would involve plenty of FCC censorship, but their is nothing typical about the Pro Bowl.

During this year’s Pro Bowl, Long’s third in his three-year career, the Bears tackle got ahold of the NFL’s Twitter account. While sitting on the bench, Long checked in with fans while showcasing his offensive line teammates.

At the time of the video, Long and his Team Rice teammates were down 28-21. Unfortunately, things only got worse from there. Team Irvin turned the game into a blowout, going up 49-21 in the fourth quarter.

Long started for his team, one of three tackles on Team Rice. Unlike his skill position teammates, there isn’t much for an offensive lineman to do that will make waves. Long’s biggest highlight may be simply chasing away a defensive end.
