NFL 2022-2023 Pro Bowl Recap

NFL 2022-2023 Pro Bowl Recap

This column covers professional football. The Pro Bowl no longer has anything to do with professional football. It is now a “skills competition” that culminates in a flag football game. Yes, you read that correctly. Flag football. Peyton Manning coached the AFC and Eli Manning coached the NFC.

Derek Carr wore the silver and black for one final time before the February 15 deadline where the Raiders trade or cut him and destroy their franchise. Carr threw a touchdown pass in this game and won the accuracy part of the skills competition. He was joined in the Pro Bowl by his teammates Josh Jacobs, Davante Adams, Maxx Crosby and AJ Cole.

Yet it was CeeDee Lamb who caught the winning touchdown pass as the NFC edged the AFC. Christian McCaffrey gave Eli Manning the Gatorade bath.

Saying anything more about this game would give it more attention than it deserves.

The Super Bowl is in one week. The Draft is in 3 months, with the 2023 NFL Schedule soon to follow. The 2023 NFL regular season kicks off in about 7 months. For true leatherheads, there is no offseason.
