The Manning Bowl
Total Pro Sports- The 2009 Pro Bowl rosters were released yesterday and the usual suspects were all there along with some new comers. The biggest story line from yesterday is that for the first time ever QB brothers will play in the same game. Peyton Manning, from the Indianapolis Colts, and Eli Manning, from the New York Giants, will take the field in Hawaii for opposite teams, but will be linked by the name on the back of their jersey.
This year Peyton will be making his 9th trip to the Aloha state and baby brother Eli will be making his first. Peyton has been named a starter and Eli has been named as a reserve, but both players should see significant playing time.
With the NFL season winding down one can’t help but wonder about the possibility of these two brothers meeting on the biggest stage of all, the Super Bowl. If that historic meeting is to take place their is no doubt that it would be a fantastic game.
