Sunday, February 13, 2005 - Pro Bowl week is more than just swimming and pineapple-eating for cornerback Champ Bailey and safety John Lynch. The Broncos' Pro Bowl players picked the brains of fellow NFL all-stars as they prepared for today's AFC-NFC game at Aloha Stadium. "It's a chance to see what makes guys tick," Bailey said. "We all go to war against each other on Sundays, but this is a chance to talk football and see what each other thinks and how they go about their business."
Patriots' Vinatieri keeping options open - Denver Post - Bill Williamson
Sunday, February 13, 2005 - Life could not be better professionally for Adam Vinatieri. He has it all. "But you never know," Vinatieri offers. Vinatieri and his New England Patriots teammates own the NFL. Vinatieri is being fitted for his third Super Bowl ring in the past four seasons. He is personally credited for winning the first two Super Bowls because of two long field goals in the waning seconds. He could be on his way to the Pro Football Hall of Fame for his work with the Patriots. "But we'll see," Vinatieri said.
Pro Bowl: history in the making - Denver Post -
Sunday, February 13, 2005 - Daunte Culpepper thought nothing would beat the excitement he had in 2000 when he was named to the NFC Pro Bowl team following his first season as a NFL starting quarterback. "That was a high," Culpepper said. "That was special." That year, however, suddenly took a back seat on the Minnesota Vikings quarterback's list of life highlights when Culpepper perused the list of NFC quarterbacks for the 2004 Pro Bowl team in December. "I was so happy," Culpepper said, "So honored to be part of something like this. This is history. What a honor."
Broncos at the Pro Bowl - DenverBroncos.com - Bobby Mestas
Friday, February 11, 2005 - The Broncos have been perhaps the most consistent NFL team for producing Pro Bowlers. Since the AFL-NFL merger, only one Pro Bowl has passed without Broncos participation (1980) and the team has seen 51 players combine for 129 appearances on the AFC All-Star squad. But something is missing from the Broncos' collective Pro Bowl résumé -- an MVP award. No Broncos player has ever earned that honor for a Pro Bowl, not even quarterback John Elway, who appeared in the game a franchise-record nine times (1986-87, 1989, 1991, 1993-94, 1996-98). Cornerback Willie Brown remains the only Broncos player to earn any kind of all-star honors, but he was named the most outstanding defensive player of the 1964 AFL All-Star Game. All of his Pro Bowl appearances came as a member of the Oakland Raiders.
