In its new role as a warmup to the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowlbecame a series of wind sprints. Long gains were the rule and hard hitting was the exception as the AFC beat the NFC 41-34 on Sunday night.
Atlanta Falcons receiver Roddy White had eight catches for 84 yards.
Light showers fell for much of the game, stirring memories of a rainy Super Bowl in Miami three years ago. But uniforms remained mostly spotless, with more pushing and shoving than tackling. "It's different. It was like 7 on 7," NFC linebacker Brian Orakpo said. "Everybody came out here trying not to get hurt and give the fans a good show" (WSBTV.COM)
Matt Schaub of the Houston Texans threw for 189 yards and two AFC scores, and was chosen the most valuable player.
Big ups to Roddy White for looking like a veteran pro-bowler and former Falcon (Schaub) as Pro-bowl MVP! Not bad for a last minute rooster fill-in (Roddy White)...
Well, Roddy has made us Falcon fans so proud...Matt Ryan to Roddy White for a TD will be like a broken record next season. GO FALCONS!
