Found January 25, 2013 on Kissing Suzy Kolber:
Welcome to hell week! No actual football, just a lot of people talking about football. Oh, and the Pro Bowl. That’s this week too. Peyton Manning is urging everyone to play hard so that Principal Goodell doesn’t cancel recess next year. It’s a joke, of course. The NFL would NEVER deprive themselves of an opportunity to make money. People watch the Pro Bowl for some unknowable reason, and that means money for the league and it’s players. Why without the tens of thousands he’d get as a winner’s bonus (or the tens of thousands he’d get as a loser’s consolation) Peyton wouldn’t be able to justify building a moat to rival Tom Brady’s. For now we’ll entertain ourselves with a sampling of the seemingly endless supply of Super Bowl prop bets. For the sake of ease (no, really) I’m presenting this weeks’ post in slideshow form. Click through for the prop bets, and if you’re one of those who doesn’t care about Top Chef recaps and power rankings, feel free to simply skip the last two. Bal

Broncos must re-sign Brandon Stokley

After last year’s short and very unproductive season with the New York Giants, Brandon Stokley seemed to be headed for retirement. He only played two games and had a single reception for seven yards.

Players, coaches hope to save the Pro Bowl; how they can do it

This year's Pro Bowl will be the most influential all-star event in recent history.
