I think the Pro Bowl is terrible. I like the way they select the starters and reserves, but you have too many players dropping out for no reason, and there is minimal conference pride to go on. I don't see a need for the game in general, and no one takes it seriously. If the players are more concerned with hanging in Hawaii, why should we care about the game at all?

Well for the sake of the players and the teams it's better just to keep it's laid back style, I sure as heck don't want a game with the players going all out for the win then someone ends up having a serious injury, it's a nice wrap-up to the year to see the better players in the league and rewards those who performed well. The game is all about awarding the stand out players so yes the Pro Bowl should stay.

It'd be better if the Pro Bowl was on the Sunday before the Super Bowl. That way people might actually watch it. Obviously the players elected to the Pro Bowl who are playing in the Super Bowl would be replaced for alternates. Much better plan.

I love the pro bowl but no way its better than the Super Bowl.

I halfway do. Just to see the Bengals.

Carson actually gets to play this year so I'll be watching him for sure. Maybe Chad will play some DB.

The ratings don't support your reasoning. Not many people watch. There was a reason why it was taken from network TV to cable.

i pretty much have to have nothing better to do to watch the pro bowl. But even if I do decide to sit down and watch the pro bowl on my weekend, I probably end up scrolling channells or something and then we probly end up cuttin on madden cuz we'd rather play videogames than watch a bunch of guys play half-assed football.

I think it's fun to watch only when your team has a lot of players in it. :D

I like to watch the skills competitons. As for the actual game, it will be on the TV in my house, but I won't be sitting down to watch it through. I will occasionally.

I love the Skills and that should be the main thing. Maybe scrap the actual game, niether players or fans like it. Make the team an honor like the all-american team, but no game.

02-07-2007, 03:19 PM
It's boring, but I'll probably watch it depending on what else is on.

02-07-2007, 03:27 PM
Just to see the Jags. I could care less about the actual game.

I'll just watch a little bit of it. I just don't like to see the players not trying.

I watch it for the Falcon players and all the stars, but mainly because its the last football game for a loooong time. :(

Anyone else find that funny? And it's true about most who watch it. They watch only to see the players that they watch every week anyway.

I am much more excited about the NFL combine. It's sad that a bunch of football players running around in their shorts has me more excited than the pro-bowl. :lol: Tom Brady pulling out, for the Pebble Beach pro-am, says all you need to know. The players want to make the team in order to get their recognition and bonuses, but couldn't care less about playing in the game.

I wouldn't watch it if all 22 Cowboys' starters were in it. Its meaningless, and as other people have stated, its half-assed.

I'll watch mainly cause I like to see star players play but moreso to see how Driver and Kampman do.

I watch all the little things before the game, and flip through the game, when its on.

it's alright, kinda cool to see all the guys' actual personalities. Belichek coaching Peyton is pretty cool/ironic also.

its so dumb- most of the true stars dont even play and backout for medical or personal reasons or because they just dont wanna play- its lost all its luster

I completely agree, I am much more excited for the Combine than the Pro Bowl.

Who are the two who voted "I like the Pro Bowl better than the Super Bowl." ????? They better just be disgruntled Bears fans.

Probably to be funny because it was an option.

I am shocked that Manning goes to it every year, I'm not sure why he does but I guess that it's interesting. He always gets beat in the precision passing part, right?

Anyway, like every All-Star game, the Skills competition is so much better than the actual game. The NHL is the best example of that though, it's on VS so no one would care anyway.

Hey, it's still football, isn't it? :)

Granted, the teams aren't exactly well-oiled machines, but it sometimes produces an entertaining game....a couple years ago, the NFC had one of the biggest comeback victories in NFL history, winning after trailing by something like 30 points in the second half. Not exactly a defensive battle, but at least it was explosive.

Also, it gives viewers the opportunity to watch several of the game's elite players at once...you never know when someone will do something amazing. In one Pro Bowl, Barry Sanders made one of the most unbelievable runs I've ever seen....even by his own lofty standards it was absolutely incredible, one of those, "Did I really just see that?" moves.

It is great football? Of course not. But football is kinda like sex, or pizza.....even bad pizza is still pretty good. ;)

I dont know why people hate it so much.

Yeah, it sucks. Just dont watch it. Its not hard to ignore it. No need to get worked up.

I never watch the pro bowl. Dont really care who makes it or gets snubbed. I could care less if terrance newman didnt make it or vince young did. And i dont know why people get worked up.

If you live in Italy you watch every football game they can show you.. We're not allowed to see more than 2 games a week.. And no NCAA at all, nor NFL films..

Obviously you haven't had really bad sex. I've had a few girls where I would just rather do it myself. I watch the pro bowl, because, well, its still football.

I watch it it is just for fun and a chance to see football one last time even if it is not real football if Will Shields plays it could be the last time he is ever on a football field as a player again so I will for sure watch.

Why dont they just make the pro bowl a flag game with lots of downfield passing and stuff like that kinda like the senior citizen HOF flag football game. Nobody gets hurt and it can still be played in hawaii
