John Kuhn made three Pro Bowls during his playing career. On his show, “Nine 2 Noon” on 97.3 The Game in Milwaukee, Kuhn expressed disappointment over how players view the Pro Bowl now in contrast to how it was viewed when he played:
The Pro Bowl has lost all of its honor and prestige with its players. And it’s sad to say because, you know, when I made a Pro Bowl it was such a major thing. And I can still remember Jerry Fontenot, my running backs coach at the time, calling me. I know exactly where I was, in Door County when he called me. I was doing an appearance and I was on my way back on a Tuesday. He called me and told me I made the Pro Bowl, and we cried together!
