Peyton Manning and Arian Foster two of the NFL’s elite think Roger Goodell is off his rocker thinking he can get a better product in the Pro Bowl. The Pro Bowl is a pick up game, teams send the best of the best to play together in one game to highlight the best players in the NFL. If Goodell wants a better product then why not move the game until after the Super Bowl? This way the two teams that play in the Super Bowl can have their guys take part in the Pro Bowl too. After all the guys playing in the Super Bowl are part of the best two teams in the NFL for the regular season. Goodell is dangerously close to ruining the NFL. The guy should be replaced, he has no clue sometimes and this is one of those times. Manning and Foster are participants in the Pro Bowl. These guys know what it take to put together a team that can go out and put on the best game possible. It takes time and effort, that is why NFL teams have training camps and they practice each week of the regular season. It takes time to get the timing of pass routes down. This is not a game where you can put a bunch of guys together and expect to see perfection. For Goodell to make threats to end the Pro Bowl, it further demonstrates his lack of knowledge of the game. Goodell is in over his head. If Goodell was smart he would listen to what Foster and Manning have to say.

Denver Broncos traded Kaepernick away

John Elway and the Denver Broncos traded the No. 36 pick in the 2011 NFL Draft. Now, that No. 36 pick represents the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl XLVII.

It was the first draft for John Elway who...

Should the Denver Broncos be aggressive in the 2013 offseason?

We already know the Denver Broncos got ousted out of the 2012 playoffs in horrific fashion. We already know Peyton Manning is now one year closer to retirement. We already know there are still significant issues on this Broncos team on both sides of the ball. However, do the Broncos go into 2013 with aggressive offseason moves to get them back to the Divisional Playoff round? Aggressive...

Eli Manning Face Great Regardless Of Setting

In the first half of the Pro Bowl, Eli Manning threw a pick-six to Derrick Johnson, one of the many Pro Bowl selections from the Chiefs that people have been complaining about, leading to the above Eli sulk face.

NFC blows out AFC in Pro Bowl

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...

Adrian Peterson Says He ‘Will Get’ MVP Award, But Peyton Manning Doesn’t Like Him Campaigning at Pro Bowl

Stiff competition doesn’t happen too often at the Pro Bowl. But this year, with the two main contenders for the MVP award suiting up for opposite sides, the game has extra intrigue. Adrian Peterson and Peyton Manning both had solid years after coming back from injuries that appeared likely to limit — if not end — their careers. They’re now the frontrunners for the league...

Ed Hochuli Makes Light Of The Grandeur Of The Pro Bowl

As Ed Hochuli will flippantly tell you, there are lots of things in the Pro Bowl that closely resemble football, penalties being one of them. Probably not a great sign for the future of the game when the lead official is openly mocking it. Peyton Manning would be so disappointed, but he’s too busy getting choked up about taking one last snap from Jeff Saturday. Either way, it was...

2013 Pro Bowl provides memorable moments

The future of the Pro Bowl is uncertain following yesterday's all-star event. Its fate will be decided over the course of the coming offseason, and there's no specific timeline in place for the commissioner and the NFL to make a decision about the possibility of a Pro Bowl in 2014, but that shouldn't take away from yesterday's game, which gave us plenty of entertaining...

Players try harder, but Pro Bowl still lacking

Ideally, the Pro Bowl would be an illusion. It would look and sound like a football game, but would not be an actual, dangerous, football game. This is the biggest issue facing the NFL today, primarily because the Super Bowl isn't until next week. The league needs to find a way to make professional football look fast and physical without being fast and physical, and that might...

Column: 'Not like we signed up to play tennis.'
