    Good move . . . to me, the Pro Bowl is unwatchable . . .

      It is unwatchable. The game has become a joke. However, I can see why some guys don't want to be laying it all out on the line. Their teams probably tell them to play as little as possible. They should replace it with some type of fun competition or something.

        The Pro Bowl would get heavy spectator draw if #1... It was moved to a later date, such as May or June
        and...
        #2...It was moved and located around the country within the Lower 48...not somewhere most of us can't go.

        I think the players would feel more inclined to play at a later point in the year and why not during the quietest part of the off-season? At the seasons end the players are burned out and could care less. I think it would increase off-season workout and minicamp attendance by these guys too!

          I feel like the league is being hypocritical (what else is new). They appear that safety is their number one concern, but then they are critical of players for not playing 100% in a gimmicky, exhibition game? All they care about is money and the only reason they appear "concerned" about player safety, is because it is costing them money from these lawsuits. Scrap the game and just have a skills competition or something. Also, like hungrrrry said, have whatever all star event that they are doing in a part of the country that anyone could attend.

            God I hope so.

            It was never really great but its become a flat joke. Should just be an induction ceremony, skills competition and highlight clips.

              They should make a loser bowl, that way Sanchez could be the starting QB for that

                The best things about baseball and basketball all star weeks is the skills competitions (especially when they have pick up games, old players, and celebrities).

                  Rex ryan the head coach? Screw it, just have the jets play one of the top high school teams in the country every year. Now THAT would get top ratings.

                    I think they should seriously make it a flag football game... no pads, no helmets. You aren't going to get hard hits anyway, so why not embrace it? It is a celebration of the player's achievements (and a vacation). Why should they pretend like it is the super bowl? They should also move it back to the week after the super bowl, so that the super bowl winners have a chance to gloat a bit. I would also like to see a skills competition.

                    Show class, be a Giants fan.

                      They should keep the "Pro-Bowl".

                      Just turn it into a bowling competition.

                      Seriously, the Pro-Bowl has always been a joke and unwatchable. But back in the day, the selection process really rewarded good players. I guess AP 1st and 2nd team honors are enough for me nowadays, as I don't care about who gets into the Pro-Bowl.

                        I suppose they are worried about ACL's injuries. Remember Robert Edwards during the beach football game? He ruined his career.

                          Disappointed that there will be no pro bowl. Easiest bet of the year taking the over!

                              why have a game or have to get voted in?

                              guys who think they are the fastest in the league, show up and race.

                              Guys who think they can make the most one handed catches in a row show up.

                              guys who think they are the strongest in the league show up and put down on the bench

                              Like a combine but for current NFL players.
