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.
