Aloha!: Pro Bowl Images

The NFL Pro Bowl may be the worst All-Star game in sports in terms of competitiveness, but it's usually good for a ton of points and countless gratuitous close-ups of gorgeous cheerleaders. Although studs Brian Urlacher and Lance Briggs pulled out of the game, the Bears were still well represented by the likes of veteran Ruben Brown and the electrifying Devin Hester.

Much like Pearl Jam was never able to live up to the smashing debut success of Ten, Bears fans might be worried if they've already seen the best of Devin Hester. He still showed some serious wiggle in the Pro Bowl, averaging 24.3 yards on four kickoff returns and racing 63 yards with his only punt return. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Although most of the faces were different, Peyton Manning still had the luxury of taking snaps from teammate Jeff Saturday. The two teams combined for 59 points and 807 yards of offense in the game. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Vince Young still has a long way to go as a passer in this league, but he's already one of the more dangerous open-field runners around. Young threw for 71 yards and ran for 15 more, although he did toss an interception and lose a fumble. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

If you were fortunate enough to have LaDainian Tomlinson on your fantasy team this past season, there's a pretty good chance a new trophy is on your mantle right now. Tomlinson rushed 10 times for 51 and scored yet another touchdown. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Many football fans questioned whether or not Tony Romo deserved to make the Pro Bowl, although he already has enough to worry about after that infamous dropped snap in the playoffs at Seattle. Romo threw for 156 yards with one touchdown and one interception. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

It may not be the highlight of his young career, but Nate Kaeding did manage to kick a game-winning 21-yard field goal for the AFC as time expired. Kaeding made all four of his extra-point attempts, although he did miss his only other field goal try. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Peyton Manning finally got the chanced to play in the Pro Bowl as a Super Bowl champion, which certainly watered down the fact that he didn't play very well in Hawaii. Manning completed just 5 of 12 passes for 67 yards and was sacked once. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Assuming he sticks to his guns and retires like he said he will, the 2007 Pro Bowl will be Tiki Barber's last professional football game. Barber did manage to score a touchdown, but he only rushed for 4 yards on 7 carries. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Shawne Merriman may have been suspended this season for violating the league's steriod policy, but there's no denying that he could end up being Lawrence Taylor reincarnated. Merriman was credited with three tackles in the Pro Bowl.(Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)

Carson Palmer only played the regular season at about 85% coming off major reconstructive knee surgery, but that didn't stop him from putting up big-time numbers. Palmer thew for 190 yards and two touchdown passes and was named the game's MVP. (Photo by Paul Jasienski/Getty Images)
