The NFL: What’s Next?

NFL Logo

To all NFL fans out there!

What an amazing season! From start to finish it’s been an amazing season to remember. We gave a fond farewell to a NFL Legend in Tony Gonzalez, saw a great change with the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl, NFL Honors (we’ll have link to our list of awards), and a lopsided new-kid-in-town pounding by the new Super Bowl Champion Seattle Seahawks! But now what is there to look forward to? Well we have that too 😉 We have candid fun to show you from the Pro Bowl, a stat recap from the Super Bowl, and we’ll fill you in on the NFL Combine and NFL Draft information too. We got you covered!

Thanks for the memories Tony! 17 years as a class-act and great representative of the NFL!

So the 2014 NFL Pro Bowl came beckoning our way here at The Peach Review® and we responded accordingly by making the trek to Honolulu, HI 🙂  Team Rice edged Team Sanders, 22-21 in the first edition of the new, non-conference Pro Bowl format. We think they’re on to something with this new format!
