Robert Mathis Now Chasing Andrew Luck at 2014 Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 22, 2014

Intro: With Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice picking Pro Bowl teams, Andrew Luck and Robert Mathis did not have to wait long to hear their names called on Wednesday night. But the night was just getting started when the two appeared to be on the same team.



INDIANAPOLIS – Andrew Luck isn’t used to spending a lot of time in green rooms.

Whether it’s the Radio City Music Hall or the beaches of Honolulu, when the No. 1 pick is announced Luck’s name is followed.

That was the case on Wednesday night as Deion Sanders chose the Colts quarterback with the first pick of the 2014 Pro Bowl.

“I think every player is deserving of the No. 1 pick in this game but I'm happy to be part of Prime Time, (captains) J.J. (Watt), Jamaal (Charles) and the Colts staff,” Luck told NFL Network after being chosen by Team Sanders.

“It’s great to be here in Hawaii and we are looking forward to it.”

Sanders said “he gave his word to Chuck Pagano”, the coach of Team Sanders, that Luck would be his quarterback for Sunday’s game.



It would appear that the Colts connection for Team Sanders would not stop there.

Team Sanders chose Robert Mathis, the NFL’s leading sacker, in the sixth round.

Houston Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, a captain for Team Sanders, pleaded for Mathis and Deion Sanders obliged.

Mathis said he was surprised to be chosen by Team Sanders after Deion said prior to the draft that he would stay away from players with more than four years of NFL experience.

“I think it was all part of the game plan so let’s get to it,” a smiling Mathis said told NFL Network.


Yet as the three-hour draft wound down on Wednesday night, Mathis was traded to Team Rice for Redskins outside linebacker Brian Orakpo.

So now on Sunday, it will be Mathis chasing down Luck and wrecking havoc against his head coach.

This is the fifth career Pro Bowl for Mathis and he finished last year’s contest with five tackles and a sack.

In the 2013 Pro Bowl, Luck was the game’s leading passer with 205 passing yards and two touchdowns.

Colts long snapper Matt Overton, who is making his first Pro Bowl appearance, will join Mathis on Team Rice.

Under a new “unconferenced” Pro Bowl format, the NFL is also implementing some different timing rules for this year’s game:

-A two-minute warning will also take place in the first and third quarters and the possession will switch at the end of each quarter.

-After the two-minute warning of each quarter, if the offense does not gain at least one yard, the game clock will stop and not start again until the next snap.

-After an incomplete pass the game clock will start on the referee’s signal, except inside the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half.

-A 35-second play clock will be used instead of the normal 40-second clock.

-The game clock will not stop after a quarterback sack at any point during the game.

The 2014 Pro Bowl will take place Sunday at 7:30 p.m. EST from Aloha Stadium.
