Last year’s Pro Bowl was more of a joke than a game. NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell was upset at the player’s lack of competition. So far J.J. Watt has a bloody hand and teams are hitting each other hard. The game seems to be legit. During the game Green Bay Packers Jeff Saturday who used to play with Peyton Manning when they both played for the Colts snapped the ball to Manning. Seems normal right? Well Saturday is playing for the NFC and Manning is playing for the AFC.
This reason behind this snap is that Jeff Saturday is going to retire from his long NFL career. This sign of respect both teams showed these two players were great. It seems that this snap could be a gimmick, but both teams and the fans loved this moment. For me I thought it was great for two longtime teammates to share a moment that will no longer happen during an NFL game.
After the play was done Manning gave the ball to Saturday and they shared a moment and both were honored to be able to play as teammates one last time.

ONE LAST TIME
The Pro Bowl is full of gimmicks and the 2013 version was no different. Jeff Saturday spent most of his career snapping the ball in Indianapolis to quarterback Peyton Manning. Every game that Manning played in Indianapolis occurred with Saturday as the center. This year both players left Indianapolis as Manning went to Denver and Saturday headed to Green Bay. Both ended up in Hawaii...
Green Bay Packers center Jeff Saturday momentarily switched teams during the Pro Bowl on Sunday for one last thrill before he retires.
Saturday was the longtime center of the Colts and played his entire Indianapolis career with Peyton Manning as his quarterback. He came into the league a year after Manning, and the two won a Super Bowl and made 16 Pro Bowls together. Both left the...
Green Bay's Jeff Saturday, the NFC's backup center, snapped the ball to the AFC's Peyton Manning. With Saturday retiring, it was a special moment between longtime teammates. It was a highlight of the NFC's 62-35 victory over the AFC.
HONOLULU (AP) -- Sack-happy defensive end J.J. Watt went out for a pass as a wide receiver, retiring center Jeff Saturday snapped to two Mannings on opposite teams and the NFC blew past the AFC 62-35 in a Pro Bowl that could be the league's last.
Whether the NFL's all-star game will return or not is a question league officials will ponder the next few months. And, the players...
According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Baltimore QB Joe Flacco is hoping for a larger contract than Peyton Manning when he becomes a free agent after the season.Fantasy Spin:Manning makes $19.2 million annually so it sounds like Flacco is hoping for at least $20 million. There's no way Flacco deserves to be paid as much as Peyton but guiding the Ravens to the Super Bowl...
The Pro Bowl is a joke. You know it. I know it. The NFL and NBC most certainly know it. The game is such a joke that jokes about the game are even getting old fast and seem as fresh as Tebowing.
We've reached some sort of absurd meta level of ridiculousness that everyone involved with the Pro Bowl from the players to the referees to the announcers promote the farcical...
Hard to believe, but the Pro Bowl just got funnier. During Train’s performance, one of the Pro Bowl dancers got a little excited and exaggerated her jump, letting her shirt ride up and showing off an elite level camel toe in the process. Commissioner Roger Goodell may opt to suspend her for leading with the lobster claw.
She looks naked, but she’s not naked; just...
Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up. In the AFC Championships second half Joe Flacco looked very Tom Brady-esque. Anquan Boldin shed years off his [...]
