Foles Bowl

Even worse than the Healthcare.gov debacle, it looks like they must have also screwed something up over at the NFL website when they setup the 2014 Pro Bowl Ballot and Nick Foles wasn't included.

I took a quick look behind the scenes and found out that I could fix their mistake up in 3 easy steps using Chrome:

1) In Chrome enter debugging mode using F12, go to Sources tab and set a breakpoint on line 369 of probowl-ballot.js:

2) Refresh the page (F5) and then once it stops at that breakpoint click over to the Console tab and enter as one line:

for(var i = 0; i & 32; i++){data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].optionText = "Foles, Nick"; data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].teamId = "PHI"; data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].playerId= "FOL058566";data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].stats[0]=1554;data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].stats[1]=16;data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].stats[2]=0;data.pages[12].polls[0].options[i].stats[3]=128.0;}

3) Go back to the Sources tab and hit F8 to resume loading.

Looks better now.

Buzzkill disclaimer: I do not recommend actually trying to submit your vote like this--it will probably just vote for whoever was originally in those spots from the official ballot.

Edit 12/4/2013: Thanks for all the support everyone, it looks like we finally got Foles on the ballot!

I can only assume that somebody at the league offices read my article, fired up their Chrome debugger and then screwed up when they pasted my code in there so that you can still select from non-Foles quarterbacks but I'm happy with the ballot for now.
