Like sandlot players when they were kids, Hall of Famers Chris Carter and Michael Irvin chose sides on Wednesday night.

This time, they were drafting some of the best football players in the game for Team Carter and Team Irvin in their Pro Bowl matchup on Sunday.

Quarterback Andrew Luck of Indianapolis went No. 1 to Team Carter. Irvin chose Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo as No. 2.

They were the only two quarterbacks left from the original Pro Bowl roster. The other six bowed out.

The NFL scrapped its AFC vs. NFC format and went to the current system a year ago. The game is being played for one year in Glendale, Arizona, site of next week’s Super Bowl, and will return to Hawaii next season.
