So, in two weeks it'll be the best QB of 2009 vs. the Colts for all the marbles in Miami. There's no huge surprise in the Super Bowl contenders this year, as both top seeds made it. Paul K has the early breakdown. Also, if you didn't think Brett Favre was going to find a way to botch that last drive, you're either John Madden or haven't watched much football over the past decade. Though, it was nice to see Deanna Favre re-invent the faceplam.
Tony Brown, Michael Griffin, Nick Harper (don't care), Kevin Kaesviharn and Ken Amato are all undergoing various surgical procedures to address injuries. Brown apparently delayed his surgery hoping that he would be added as an alternate to what would have been his first Pro Bowl.
2009 was without a doubt Kyle Vanden Bosch's worst healthy year as a Titan, but it was good enough to get him into the Pro Bowl after Robert Mathis and Dwight Freeney advanced to the Super Bowl.
Follow us through the jump if you love Jim Rome, Tim Tebow or network executives...
As Paul Kuharsky reported, and we posted, would happen, Kevin Mawae has also been added to the Pro Bowl roster since Jeff Saturday is headed to the Super Bowl. Mawae was the first alternate behind Saturday and the Jets' Nick Mangold.
Last week I mentioned that ex-Oiler/Titan Blaine Bishop will join Clay Travis on a new mid-day show on 104.5 The Zone, and now it's been confirmed that the show will mercifully replace the Jim Rome Show. No details yet on if Rome's 'Clones' will protest, but if they do I'm sure their signs will be written in crayon and feature long mid-sentence blank spots which make you wonder if the message is over, only to start up again.
NFL.com analyst Gil Brandt compared Tim Tebow to Vince Young. We'll let that sink in for a moment... I can absolutely, unequivocally guarantee you that no one will be comparing those two in 3 years unless Vince decides to start playing tight end as well.
Major love to commentor/reader 2toned blue for this link: This one is a little late, but CBS wanted the Jet to lose on Sunday. Could you have imagined the sheer number of commercials featuring Brett Favre and Peyton Manning that would have run during a Colts/Vikings Super Bowl?
