During Sunday’s NFL All-Star Game, NFC center Jeff Saturday was allowed to swap teams and snap to AFC quarterback Peyton Manning one final time, fittingly, in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Saturday, of course, spent thirteen years snapping to Manning in Indianapolis before both players left the Colts last offseason.  Back in Hawaii, representing Green Bay and Denver, Saturday and Manning got one last snap.

“After doing it that long with him, we figured it was our last run together, might as well get one more,” said Saturday, who played more center for the NFC after his moment with Manning, in a sideline interview with NBC (via Shutdown Corner). “It was something special I’ll always remember.”

In the game, Manning went 6-of-12 for 43 yards and a touchdown pass.  Early in the fourth quarter, the NFC currently leads 55-21.

    I think I know how the Broncos can win the super bowl next year. They just need to have the opposing teams best player swap teams for the game, and we will win them all! Muwhahahaha

    I haven’t watch the pro bowl in years but it’s pretty cool the NFL allowed Manning to fondle Saturday’s ass… I mean take a snap from Saturday one last time.

    Yeah it was a pretty cool scene I think. I still like the Pro Bowl and watch it every year. Last year was quite weak though I must admit and it was fun to see them play a little harder. While obviously at a much much lower level when I played in the SemiPro/amateur leagues I got to play in an all star game 3 times and that was as intense as any regular game played, of course like I said it was at a much much lower level.
