After a solid preformance by the Cardinals who made the Pro Bowl, time for some links.

Also a little note on how our dreams of getting Peyton Manning is getting less and less likely because he is a 35 year old man with a bad neck and he is struggling to regain strength in his arm after the surgery. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Peyton Manning to the Cardinals? Don't get your hopes up

This franchise hasn't changed that much.

So it was when we discovered that a guy with the handle "az-jt" (actually 51-year-old Jerry Martin) put up an EBay listing for a pair of cleats supposedly worn by the late Pat Tillman, the former Arizona Cardinals defensive back who died in a friendly-fire incident in Afghanistan in 2004.

Peyton is struggling to get healthy | ProFootballTalk
During our NBC Pro Bowl pregame news pop from the floor of Lucas Oil Stadium, Peter King provided an update regarding the story that will dominate the discussion all week in Indianapolis.
