WATERCOOLER CHAT: MANNING, FAVRE TO PRO BOWL, WILL BENGALS GIVE JETS A GIFT

FOOTBALL

Peyton ManningWe’ll see some familiar faces in the 2010 Pro Bowl in Hawaii next year. No surprise that Drew Brees was selected as the starting QB for the NFC and Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers will be his backups. This will be Favre’s 11th Pro Bowl appearance (not bad for a 40 year old!). Peyton Manning will represent the AFC as the starter and Philip Rivers and Tom Brady will be the backups. This will be Manning’s 10th appearance. Manning and Favre are the only QB’s that have made the Pro Bowl at least 10 times.

Marvin Lewis.JPGQuestion is, will the Cincinnati Bengals give the New York Jets another gift like they got last weekend against the Colts (see post dated December 28th ). The Bengals have already clinched a playoff birth so they could easily go to New York and take it easy,  giving their players a rest and making it easier for the Jets to secure their own playoff spot.   There of course could be arguments both ways but it would be tough for Bengals Coach Marvin Lewis to have his team play at half mast and lose momentum going into the playoffs. Tune in Sunday night to see what happens.
