Andrew's "luck"y day, take's Brady's spot in Pro Bowl

New England Patriots’ quarterback Tom Brady has asked to be removed from the roster for the Pro Bowl.

The 36 year old, eight-time Pro Bowl selection cites an unspecified injury, which opens the door for Indianapolis Colts’ sensational rookie quarterback Andrew Luck to make his first of potentially many appearances.

Brady’s omission from the roster leaves only Special Teams demon Matthew Slater and linebacker Jerod Mayo as the only players from the AFC Runners-up still slated to make an appearance at the annual post-season all-star game to be played this Sunday in Honolulu.

NFL contractually obligations mandate that the losing coaches from each conference championship game will coach the Pro Bowl squads, which means that we will see New England’s Bill Belichick and Atlanta’s Mike Smith coaching the AFC and NFC squads respectively.
