    Pro bowl



    Adam Schefter ?@AdamSchefter 3m

    NFL eliminated traditional AFC-NFC Pro Bowl matchup; will be replaced with Pro-Bowl fantasy-like draft, per ESPN sources.



    i kinda like this idea

    No more kickoffs in Pro Bowl. Rosters will consist of 43 players per squad. Game will be played Jan 26 in Honolulu.

    Now players will be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft (really). Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will be draft captains.

    The draft part could be fun.

    But it ain't gonna change the fact that an "exhibition" football game - where players are primarily concerned with avoiding injury - is simply useless and boring to watch.

    sounds a little bizarre but I guess it will get a lot of fantasy fans interested, and that's the goal. They could probably do all of this and forget about actually playing a game, and they'd get the same results.

    I would still rather watch paint dry than to watch any All Star Game that the Big Four put out.

    If they're still playing the game, they haven't made it better. Given the injury rate for the sport, having your best players risk being hurt for nothing makes absolutely no sense.

    They should just do a flag football tournament with players being picked like NFL Street. 1 QB, 1 WR, 1 RB, 1 DB, 1 LB, 1 OL, and 1 DL. This would be significantly more entertaining and avoid a lot less injuries. I would love to watch RG III play deep safety or Calvin Johnson play CB.

    I thought the last Pro Bowl was flag football.

    Maybe they could somehow tie home field advantage for the Super Bowl to it.
