Peyton and Eli Manning to coach 2023 Pro Bowl Games

Peyton and Eli Manning revealed during Monday Night Football that they will be the coaches for the 2023 Pro Bowl Games.

The NFL Pro Bowl has been a heavily scrutinized event over the years, due in part to the play on the field. Back in September, the NFL announced that they would move on from the tackle game and instead implement a week-long event that features skill competitions and a flag football game among the AFC and NFC’s top stars.

During the latest edition of “The Manningcast” during the Monday Night Football game between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints, Peyton and Eli Manning revealed that they will be coaching in the flag football games at the Pro Bowl Games.

Peyton will be coaching the AFC, while Eli will be coaching the NFC.

Of course, the announcement had some bickering between the Manning brothers.

Peyton said that while they will both be coaching the teams, they will also have a “superstar coaching staff.”

Pro Bowl voting is currently open until Thursday, Dec. 15. Once the 44 players are voted in, the Mannings will be deciding which players will be participating in the skills competitions and the three seven-on-seven flag football games.

In the NFL’s announcement of the rebranded NFL Pro Bowl Games, they said that Peyton’s Omaha Productions will  be “helping to shape programming and promote the event’s content throughout the week.”

Peyton made the Pro Bowl 14 times in his career, 11 times as the quarterback of the Indianapolis Colts and three times as a member of the Denver Broncos. Eli, meanwhile, made the Pro Bowl four times in his career as the quarterback for the New York Giants.

More details about the Pro Bowl Games will be revealed in the coming weeks, per the Manning brothers.

The Pro Bowl will culminate in the flag football games on Sunday, Feb. 5 at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas, Nev.
