The Pro Bowl: Should it Even Be Played?

The NFL All-Star Game is today and it is the worst All-Star Game of any of the major sports. Players are there to enjoy Hawai, but the game might as well be flag football.

In a sport that is ridiculously violent, players are not going to go all out in a game that means absolutely nothing (except for maybe Eric Weddle).

So why do we even play this game? You can still give the players that are voted onto the Pro Bowl a free trip to Hawaii and let them just enjoy their stay, but there is no need for them to play a meaningless game.

I don’t even care about the game today because there isn’t even a San Diego Chargers player on the roster. I am not going to tune in to see our lone representative cheerleader.

What should they do instead of the Pro Bowl?

Maybe just have a skills competition between some of the NFL players. Fastest man. Strongest man. Strongest arm. Most accurate.

Just end the Pro Bowl. It is useless and the players don’t even want to play.

    They can make an charity incentive program out of it. Each touchdown, sack, interception, etc. would equal different amounts that will be donated to that player’s (or team, whatever) charity of their choice. Maybe then all the players will actually play instead of only a couple.

    Ernie, between you an Nick, i think your on to the right idea. why not make it a competition of skills sets, break it down to Line-men, DB’s, linebackers, RB WR, QB. put them in competition for points and let the winner donate the winnings of there choice.
    Now it’s still a team sport, AFC VS NFC, now the winning conference, gets little spending money if they win. ;) think of the New Pro-Bowl like a combine skills test.
