The NFL’s attempt to invigorate the Pro Bowl by having teams led by Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice has begun, with the draft selection of Pro Bowl players completed on Wednesday night. It remains to see if the elimination of the AFC and NFC designations will add additional interest to the league’s all-star game. For now, a two-day draft to select who among the best will be selected to each team was enacted to try to drum up enthusiasm. Just where did the four Eagles in Hawaii for the game land?

Evan Mathis and LeSean McCoy will be together on Team Rice. They will face teammates Nick Foles and DeSean Jackson on Team Sanders. Foles escaped the embarrassment of being the last player chosen to a team, leaving that honor to former coach Andy Reid’s new quarterback, Alex Smith.
But does any o...

PRO BOWL ROSTERS SET
The Pro Bowl rosters have been drafted by Team Sanders and Team Rice. The four Eagles participants — quarterback Nick Foles, running back LeSean McCoy, left guard Evan Mathis and wide receiver DeSean Jackson...
Lesson on how to push Jerry Rice’s buttons: Mistake one, Harbaugh saying Crabtree is the “greatest pass catcher of all-time.” Mistake two, claiming Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders rivalry isn’t as big as Crabtree and Sherman. Jerry Rice isn’t too happy about that:
Crabtree versus Richard Sherman? Come on man, that is not even close,” Rice said. The NFL’s greatest wide...
Bill Musgrave has been hired to replace Bill Lazor as the Philadelphia Eagles quarterbacks coach.
Nick Foles is about to get his third quarterbacks coach in as many years after Bill Lazor flew the coop to accept the Miami Dolphins offensive coordinator position.
On the same day that a second- of Chip Kelly's lieutenants jumped ship, the Philadelphia Eagles moved forward and...
Chicago Bears Football – Brandon Marshall laid it all on the table after he was drafted by Team Rice for the 2014 Pro-Bowl. He seemed pretty damn confident that Deion Sanders couldn’t keep up.

The 19-year-old Justin Bieber was arrested in Miami Beach early Thursday morning for drag racing while driving while under the influence. The Biebs had an interesting passenger with him during his joy ride, model Chantel Jeffries, who is the ex-girlfriend of Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
Earlier in the night when he wasn’t being arrested, Bieber posted this...
Revis isn’t the best corner in the game any more, but I understand why he has to have that type of mentality.
But, deep down he knows he has fallen slightly, he isn’t mediocre…ME—D—OKER, but just very good.
“I feel like I’m the best,” he said. “Deion Sanders probably feels like he is the best. Everybody has their own personal opinion. And that is how you go with...
Holy ****, did you know the Pro Bowl is this weekend? No, really. No, I mean I'm really asking that. I didn't. I honestly thought it was still after the Super Bowl for some reason. Certainly, I've seen the poop that has been shoved down our raw throats by the NFL this year of how the new "cool" Pro Bowl is going to be like REAL fantasy football (So ... football...
Philadelphia Eagles’ WR DeSean Jackson recently told SplashNewsOnline.com that he did not hear one word about the big news that his ex-girlfriend,Chantel Jeffries, was hanging out and getting in trouble with Justin Bieber.
Well, if he did hear about it, I’m sure he did not care at all.
The NFL Pro Bowl took a backyard approach to picking teams this season.
Rather than splitting up the squads by AFC and NFC, Pro Football Hall of Famers Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders drafted the teams with the help of some captains. Sanders picked Kansas City Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles and Houston Texans defensive lineman J.J. Watt as his captains, while Rice chose...
Yesterday was the first day of the NFL’s Pro Bowl Draft, held in Hawaii. Tuesday’s draft focused on defensive tackles, the offensive line and special teams. Below are the choices that the two team captains, Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders, made yesterday.
There are still about 60 players still left to be drafted. Tonight’s draft will see the selection of wide receivers, running...
Once upon a time the NFL Pro Bowl kinda meant something. Players didn't make the big money they do now, so the extra cash for the winners acted as motivation. And conference pride, to a degree, still mattered.
But over the years, as the money became meaningless and pride waned, the Pro Bowl devolved into a semi-glorified scrimmage, and more recently an outright farce.
So in an...
With five players going to the Pro-Bowl the Chicago Bears may have some match-ups which pit teammate against teammate. Kyle Long has already been assigned to Deion Sanders’ team, but who else will we see get drafted and to what team?
It is difficult to imagine Alshon Jeffery or Brandon Marshall being skipped over when it comes to wide receivers. What are the odds that both players...
