    NFL considers making the Pro Bowl “more like a game show”
    They should do a mix of Battle of the network stars with the old Skill position type show they did back in the 70's pair Von Miller up with Scarlett Johansson running an obstacle course in a bathing suit.

      This would be awesome. So many players are ultra competitive by nature and many like to gamble. Might as well feed into that. Have player X race player Y. Player X gets 25 grand. Player Y gets 5 grand. Let them **** talk and tweet back and forth. NFC vs. AFC tug-o-war. Winners get a Rolex loser gets nothing. Brady vs. Manning vs. Rodgers throwing accuracy contest. Bench rep contests. Hell, have an AFC vs. NFC dunk contest.

            • They just need to bring back the skills competitions and axe the game completely.

              • I'd also partner it with the sports science series. Create a measurable way to showcase the best athletes in the world. Have expensive impact tackling dummies that measure defensive explosiveness in a quantifiable way. I'd love to see a Sports Science Patrick Willis vs. Von Miller tackling impact contest in Hawaii. Winner gets 20 grand.

                If they're serious, I'm glad the NFL is finally thinking outside the box. The Pro Bowl as it exists now is Caleb Hanie-esqe in its assyness.

                • Have a field goal shootout between kickers... 5 kicks, one each from 20, 30, 40, 50 and 60 yards and sudden death kicks at 55 yards after...winner gets money or something...would be great to watch

                    a kicking contest?

                    after that we could give two players each a bucket of paint and have a paint race to the top of each goal post upright winner gets a ladder to get down.

                      That would be awesome. I'd love to see some dunk tank action too. Kicker makes a kick they win money. They miss and a door opens to dunk them. Maybe put Goodell in a dunk tank and give 50K to charity if Manning can dunk him. How about a sort of a Pros vs. Joes thing. Have a fan try and catch a Colin Kaepernick slant or quick out for 10 grand. There are so many cool things they could do and sponsors would pay for all of it.

                      They need to bring in some Japanese consultants.

                      • Why not just let the players play for real?

                          i am pretty sure the ratings are higher than ever.... all info i see is they have averaged over an 8 rating for a few straight years.... sooo if so, why would they change?

                              love the dunk tank idea. Have Goodell sitting above the tank, and the kickers have one chance to kick like 30 yards to hit a bullseye and sink the commish. The guy who does this is auto-hero and given a parade and lifetime supply of viagra and prostitutes. And a La Quinta Inn special rates.

                                Starks isn't great. Might beat the pretty dreadful Clary out of a spot though which is a shame as he was usually Von's b****.
