Pro Bowl Selections are out and three worthy candidates stand out among the selections; comeback kids Peyton Manning, Adrian Peterson and rookie Robert Griffin III.

Bronco Quarterback Peyton Manning missed last season with a serious neck and back injury that required several operations. The uncertainty surrounding his rehabilitation and recovery led the Indianapolis Colts to release their franchise quarterback and former MVP and Pro Bowl selection (12 times) and draft Andrew Luck. Manning signed with Denver as a free agent and has led the Broncos to a 10 game win streak and leader of the AFC West.

This time last year, Viking Running Back Adrian Peterson was undergoing surgery after tearing his knee on Christmas Eve in a game against the Washington Redskins. Peterson has returned with a vengeance dispelling all doubts about his ability to rebound posting a career high 1,898 yards and helping his team to a wild-card berth in the post season.

Rookie Redskin Quarterback Robert Griffin III is capping off an impressive debut giving his team hope of making the playoffs if they beat the Cowboys on Sunday. Griffin has proven himself as a leader on and off the field and was voted team captain by his teammates.

All three are humble in acknowledging their Pro Bowl nods and speak of teamwork and hard work rather than individual accolades, which speaks to the great fiber of their character.

The Pro Bowl is a nod to the best of the best and these three have given their all and proven their mettle and worthiness on the field.

Congratulations to all of the players who received Pro Bowl selections
