it's been a glorified scrimmage for many years.
i dont recall ever seeing a full game and i understand its mostly a vacation albeit a sorta working vacation for the players , but wouldnt it make a bit more sense to keep it the way it is and have it after the superbowl . how can playoff, superbowl teams be able to go if they have to get with their coaches and game plan for a game that means something and go to the probowl at the same time
