    I had it on in the background - I was rooting for the Beavers to beat the Ducks....

    No, its awful.

    I am actually suprised players agree to the Pro Bowl game, one twist the right way and boom its a knee. If I were a top NFL player, you wouldn't see me near that mess...

    Kill it, have a awards dinner or something.

    It was actually downright watchable this year. I'm as surprised as you folks.

    Guys were hitting, and it was more than just a day off for the players. I still think a flag football game (with throwback players from other eras, as well as maybe some celebrities, like the 3-on-3 the NBA does during all star week) would make it a lot more fun for a lot more people.

    You've guys missed a good Probowl...
    This format worked out great and I see it as a good way to keep the ptobowl interesting.
    Better than expected for sure...

    I thought it was much better than previous years. It's still an exhibition game, but it was better than previous years.

    I saw a few brief highlights and it sure didn't look like the defenders were making much of an effort. The NFL trying to capitalize on the popularity of the draft and fantasy football is just laughable.

    I guess I'm in the tiny minority. I like the Pro Bowl if only to watch top players perform as a kind of fantasy-team roster. Recently, players have made the game a joke, but I remember back in the 70's the players took it seriously and balled.

    Sunday evenings game was one of the better efforts I've seen from the players in a decade and was rather fun to watch.

    Actually, I would totally get behind this idea. But they'd need to "keep it real" and do stuff like draw up plays on their chests in the huddle or in the sand with a stick.

    Different players could wear small video cameras so fans could see the plays being called in the huddle. Maybe the coach would call the plays, just like Little League. "You: go deep! You: swing left! You: just get open."

    Then the D-ends would have to count 3-MISSISSIPPI before rushing in with their arms flailing.

    It would be epic! But it will NEVER happen.


    Out

    I hardly ever watch the Pro Bowl, maybe 5 or 10 minutes of it, but this year, I have absolutely no desire to watch any of it.

    When they first had the commercial about Sanders and Rice doing the draft for it, I literally thought it was some Fantasy Football thing, not the actual game itself!

    I didn't think they could make it less desirable to view, but they have succeeded in doing so, IMO.
    I'm SUPER NATTIEL happy Denver is in the Super Bowl.

    A game a bunch of Chiefs got into by default so another chance to watch the best defense in the history of the NFL, this is better than the Super Bowl.

    Probowl is stupid, nobody gives a damn. Not now, not next year, not in 10 years. Sorta like the dunk contest has become. Everything has already been done and the past 10 years they've resorted to gimmicks and it's soooooooooo boring. In fact, Allstar Weekend, the whole damn thing is boring.
