I've argued for several years now that they'd be far better served if they replaced the current pro-bowl format with a big blow out in place of the Hall of Fame game.
Let current pro-bowlers go schmooze with the HoFers in Canton, play a game, have a bunch of skills competitions, all that junk. I think you'll see far better player participation in that format and the fan base will have been football starved since the draft, so far more willing to watch the sloppy pass heavy game that is a pro bowl match up.
