Half Smokes Highlights: Stars On The Field, Stars On The Court

Donovan McNabb and Julius Peppers were two of the biggest names to change addresses during off-season, but that's not the only thing these two, who will be going head to head on Sunday, have in common. Both players have made multiple Pro Bowl appearances and fallen agonizingly short in the Super Bowl to the Patriots

On top of that, they also both spent time playing basketball while at college, and neither one was playing for a slouch team. McNabb played with Jim Boeheim at Syracuse and Julius Peppers was holding his own against tough ACC competition at North Carolina. They're not the only players to ever play collegiately at both levels, but they're the only players to ever appear in the Final Four and the Super Bowl.

Based on their college numbers, I'd take Peppers in a game of one-on-one, but they could both throw it down when they had the opportunity. Check it out.
