Pro Bowl Nonsense
I watched a few plays of the Pro Bowl last night and found it to be pretty much unwatchable. There is no reason to even have a Pro Bowl. Guys don't want to get hurt and everything moves at half speed most of the time. It is foolish to even call it a football game.
The NFL should reward players as Pro Bowlers - and I don't really care if they leave the system as is - and give them a check/bonus. Don't worry about playing football. Then, instead of a football game they could have a series of competitions (40 yard dash, weight lifting, obstacle course, etc.) and make it interesting. I don't know if people would really watch, but I know I would be more interested.
