Can you believe it? All four wildcard teams are favored. That’s each pair in each conference.
“I’ve never seen anything like that,” said Mike Seba, a senior oddsmaker for Las Vegas Sports Consultants.
The favored Giants are 2-1 to win with the Titans at 4-1. Steelers are at 9-1 odds to take the big game. Other notables are New England at 2-1 and Dallas at 7-1: both failed to make the playoffs.
The Pro Bowl will be played one week before the Super Bowl in 2010 and both games will be staged in Dolphin Stadium, a person directly involved in the decision told The Associated Press on Monday.
Prediction: All Pro Bowl selections from both Super Bowl teams will decline their invitations. Can you imagine the outcry were a player on a Super Bowl team to be injured in the Pro Bowl!?
Cowher … told the team he would not be a candidate because he would like to bring in his own personnel director.
Can you blame the man? Look at the rosters for the Browns and Jets. What a mess! Cowher would be a fool to accept such a job. A coach can only do so much if he can’t pick his own players.
