  • What should they do with the probowl?

    Well clearly they can't keep playing this farce. I mean the pro bowl always pretty bad, but this is the worse pro bowl I've ever seen. They are fake tackling, and the linemen are not even trying. That said you know what? ITS NOT THERE FAULT! The pro bowl god dang stupid in it's current incarnation. It needs to be changed.

    I've always felt they should just turn it into a award show. Like the players still get elected to the pro bowl and everything, but there no game. They just show like highlights and talk about all the selected players. Then maybe they have like a softball game or something.

    What you guys think is the best way to do the pro bowl?

    Flush it. Get rid of it completely. Or do like I do and just ignore it.

        They should simply announce the teams. That's it. They should not even play the game.

          An award ceremony where they announce things such as MVP and players of the year isn't a bad idea.

          As for the game there is nothing you can do. You can't even give it a degree of importance like in the MLB since the SuperBowl is on a neutral field.

          The concept of a football allstar game is just fundamentally flawed from the start since no one will risk injury for something that meaningless.

            Let them play real football and losers donate their first pay check next year to charity.

                Honestly, at this point, they might as well play a flag football game. Have linemen and defensive ends announced to the pro bowl, but don't bother to have them play. Just skill positions. I would rather watch a flag football game with every one mic'ed up over this.

                  There was another thread that was talking about what to do to make game more interesting.

                  Some suggestions were a Skills Competition..
                  Like who can throw it the furthest. 40 yard dash. Strenth. FG and punts. Etc.
                  Fun stuff could include
                  Endzone dance and slam dunk over crossbar competition.
                  There was a bunch more suggestions but don't remember them all without going back to that thread. But there were some good ones?

                  Some others were. A flag football game.
                  And a Old Timers game
                  Football has been very, very good to us.
                  After losing seasons 2013-15, the giants put up 11 wins in 16.. they are on way Back
                  But for now we can console ourselves with this fact-

                  # of Super Bowl victories since 1985:

                  1-Chicago, St. Louis, Tampa Bay, Indianapolis, New Orleans, Seattle
                  2-Washington, Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
                  3-San Francisco, Dallas, Denver
                  4-New York Giants!!!
                  5-NE
                  Let's make it 5 in 2016 so we can be on a LINE NE again!!!

                    I don't know, but you're right. Something has to be done.

                    I watched 5 minutes of it and then just went into a rant and turned it off. It's a disgrace to the NFL and the fans.

                    People watch professional football to see the best of the best compete and lay it all on the line each week. The Pro Bowl is the antithesis of that concept. Everyone just half-***** it and the rules prevent the defense from even showing up.

                    It's embarrassing for everyone involved.

                        The defense isn't even allowed to blitz LOL wow. This is a professional version of flag football without the flags.
                        Mood: WOOF!

                          I would definitely make it more interesting by just having the players hold a symposium to celebrate the game's best that year, and hold it after the championship game to ensure that all the teams are represented. I would definitely not play the game, as it is a complete waist of everyone's time.

                          I would probably move it to the Hall of Fame in Canton, so the event would be held in a meaningful venue. That way the season would end and begin with a Hall of Fame event. That would also be a good opportunity for the new HOF inductees to participate and comment on their impressions of that year's Pro Bowlers.

                          Just food for thought.

                          Go Blue!

                            It'd be pretty much the same thing, except I think I'd be more willing to watch it simply because they wouldn't actually be passing it off as football.

                            A skills competition would be pretty sweet. Forty yard dashes between nose tackles.

                              So, basically, you're suggesting dropping it altogether, since they already have All Pro elections, which is more meaningful in its respectability anyway.

                              I agree.

                              Of course, I feel the same way about all the All Star Games in hockey, baseball, basketball, as well as the Pro Bowl. I haven't watched any of those in at least 35 years.
