Pro Bowl week is in full swing as the NFL makes its latest attempt to revive the tired All-Star game. The reality is that fans care less about the actually game then they do about their players getting the recognition they deserve. The players probably don’t care about the game any more than not getting hurt and soaking up the sun in Hawai’i while the Broncos and Seahawks freeze in New Jersey. Nick Foles, 1st time Pro Bowler, lightened the mood even more, dropping one of our favorite lines of the past few weeks.

Here is the full video of Alfred Morris Mic’d up during practice. Team Rice TE Jimmy Graham twitched and a host of lineman fell off sides. Nick Foles called “Omaha” in true Peyton Manning fashion because it made no sense in context, and we still have no idea what it means.
We do know that Peyton Manning’s “Omaha” call is making just as much of a mark off the field as it has on the field. Eight separate companies in Omaha pledged to donate $800 to Peyton manning’s foundation for at-risk youth for every time he yelled “Omaha!” As a result, Peyton raised $24,800 for his foundation. Who knows, maybe it means absolutely nothing and is just the best fundraising campaign in the history of history.
