Peyton Manning – King of the Pro Bowl

Who else but Peyton Manning should be named King of the Pro Bowl, or at least King of the Pro Bowl selection tally!  Peyton has been named starting QB for the AFC in this year’s Pro Bowl and this marks his 12th selection to the honor, passing Brett Favre.  Peyton will be joined by Tom Brady and Matt Schaub.  For the NFC, Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay has been named the starter.  He is joined by Matt Ryan of the Falcons (way to go Matty Ice!) and RG III of the Redskins, the only rookie QB to make the Pro Bowl roster.  Other notables include Adrian Petersen, Calvin Johnson, Julio Jones and Tony Gonzalez of the Falcons.  Wonder why not Roddy White as well?  The Pro Bowl is January 27, 2013 in Hawaii, one week before the Super Bowl.  Interestingly, if any of these guys are in the Super Bowl, they will most likely be “no-shows”.

In other NFL news, Mark Sanchez will start for the Jets this weekend in place of Greg McElroy who has a concussion.  Tim Tebow is not pleased.

In NBA news, the Brooklyn Nets have fired coach Avery Johnson.  The Nets are currently 14 – 14 on the year.  Johnson was coach of the month in October and November after an 11 – 4 start.  How quickly things can turn…

Let’s go watch some college football!
