    My idea for the Pro Bowl



    Some of you older dudes probably remember Battle of the Network Stars.....




    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cqWU9huMMco




    I think the NFL should go this route with ProBowl Players....make it NFC v AFC, and bust out some goofy competitions, with some serious cake going to the winning team.




    Examples:




    NFC QBs v AFC QBs in a huge game of Dodge Ball.




    WRs and CBs..... relay races.




    Runningbacks / LBs.....obstacle cources.




    Offensive/Defensive linemen...... tug of war.




    They could come up with some other crap as well, I'm sure.




    It would just be cool, and probably pretty funny, watching these guys compete in something off the wall, and without the risk of injury.

    I think this is a great idea.
    I thought of introducing them at halftime of the superbowl and pay for them and a guest to go to hawaii as reward... They could finish it with the kind of competition you mention.... very cool. I stopped watching this farce after the 1987 season. I watched after the '86 Pro Bowl game because Simms was in it...lol.

    Can't be worse then the current format
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    In the midst of this losing season, 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, Denver, Pittsburgh, Baltimore
    3-San Francisco, Dallas, New England
    4-New York Giants!!!!!

    Wouldn't work...Dodge balls hurt and if thrown with enough velocity, will cause concussions. Roger Goodell...Does not approve.

    [quote user="JMFP2"]WRs and CBs..... relay races. Runningbacks / LBs.....obstacle courses. [/quote]

    It works until one player tears a ham string resulting in a career ending injury in which the player proceeds to sue the NFL adding another lawsuit to list.

    Roger Goodell...Does not approve.

    More injuries, more lawsuits and once again, Roger Goodell....Does not approve.

    Along these lines I would get rid of the game completly. I would turn it into a huge "mini game" day.
    You could for instance Have a QB....with 4 WRS with different colored jerseys. When a color pops up the QB hits that guy...or another color for less points. Have a Radar gun for fastest ball.
    You can do this stuff for so many positions...pays each player that wins each compition.

    Instead of actually playing football, from now on we should develop people to play specific positions at Madden and broadcast it live on Fox on Sundays. Injury problem solved.

    I like this idea a lot! I had been thinking about what they could do as well, and I thought there should be some fan interaction too.

    And now, in the interest of equal time, here is a message from the National Institute of Pancakes: It reads, and I quote, **** waffles.......G Carlin
