Bigger, Faster, Smarter: The NFL Pro Bowl

The NFL Pro Bowl is football’s all star game and to make it to this game you have to be one of the biggest, fastest, meanest dudes on the planet.

Players for the 2008-2009 Pro Bowl to be played on Feb. 8, 2009 in Hawaii were picked on Dec 16 and include:

Carolina Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers is a man with a wingspan that rivals that of a terradactyl dinosaur. Peppers is 6’7” and is one of the only athletes in history to make it to both the NFL Pro Bowl and the NCAA Final Four. Peppers was part of the North Carolina Tar Heels basketball team that played in the Final Four in 2000-20001.

Adrian Peterson is in his second year as an NFL running back and looks to be on track to take his first NFL rushing title. He currently has 1581 yards and nine touchdowns for the Minnesota Vikings and many NFL experts are saying he’s the next Walter Payton.

Quarterback Peyton Manning of the Indianapolis Colts may not be the fastest or the strongest NFL player but he’s definitely one of the smartest. Many wrote the former NFL MVP off this season but the Colts have won all their close games behind the crafty play calling of Manning and look to be on the way back to the NFL playoffs to compete for a second Super Bowl.

Albert Haynesworth is a defensive tackle for the Tennessee Titans and looks like the last guy you’d ever want to meet on either the football field or an eating contest. The 6’6” Haynesworth moves like a grizzly bear, swiping opponents out of the way like he was on his way to the honey pot.

Other players to make it to the 2008-2009 NFL Pro Bowl include: WR Larry Fitzgerald (Arizona Cardinals), RB Thomas Jones (New York Jets), LB Ray Lewis (Baltimore Ravens), and QB Brett Favre (New York Jets). For a complete list of Pro Bowl starters and reserves visit NFL.com
