Broncos Pro Bowl 2015: Eight Broncos in Glendale, just during the wrong week

New, comments

Broncos running back C.J. Anderson was the latest addition to Denver's Pro Bowl electorate, 11 players deep.

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Denver Broncos have 9 10 11 10 I-don't-know-how-many Pro Bowl players playing a game this weekend, and I suppose it's something we should talk about. I mean, it's great and it's an honor to have a lot of Pro Bowlers, as Peyton Manning would say. I'm just still too bitter at the whole playoffs loss to really enjoy it.

I'm trudging through this for those of you who, I dunno, like the Pro Bowl. There are also some cool pictures of our Broncos players there, which is sort of neat. We'll probably have more of these later.

Team Irvin has six Broncos while Team Carter has two. Go Team Irvin! or whatever.

I never want to cover a Pro Bowl in the Peyton Manning-Broncos era again, assuming it continues for another year or two, as reports suggest. I want to cover Super Bowls instead. Gary Kubiak, the (fully inflated) football's in your court.

The Pro Bowl is this Sunday at 8:00 p.m. ET. Read all about the Pro Bowl rule changes here, including robot goalposts.
