    What to do with the ProBowl to make players want to be there...



    http://espn.go.com/espn/conversation...?eleven=twelve




    None of the playersfrom the Patriots nor Giantsteams will be there...honestly they could probably care lessprefer rest...the same as all the other players that drop out every year. They are just ready for time off!




    Why not push the Pro-Bowl off until the weekend before free agency opens or even near draft day?




    I know what you are thinking...Agents wouldn't want their clients chancing an injury. These guys really don't play all that hard anyway and it would get them geared up for the new season.




    Maybe that Gawd-aweful month prior to training camp when nothing of note comes out of the NFL.




    The Pro-Bowl should be more relevant than it is and hell, I would love to watch some sort of pro football during the off-season....




    Any thoughts?

    Get rid of the pro bowl game. Just give the awards to the players.

    You could play the game in Hawaii.

    The game is a perk for the players. And being elected or chosen helps with contract negotiations.

    I assume the Harbaugh Bros. are coaching the game (Conference runners-up). Am I correct in that? How horrible that must be. You just lose perhaps the most meaningful game of your life and, as a reward, you get to coach in the most meaningless game of the year. That's almost cruel. It's like punishment for losing the conference championship.

    Have a Slam Dunk Contest like the NBA. Only the guys a judged on best slams over the Goalposts! Lol
    Football has been very, very good to us.
    Even though 2013 was a 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!!!!!

    Let's make it 5 in 2014 !!!

    Actually I was joking. But you might be onto something here. Have guys be graded on throwing the ball the furthest and for pinpoint arcuracy. WRs catching passes, RBs racing, punters and kickers for longest punts, kickoffs and FGs
