    Pro Bowl

    Apparently starting next year the Pro Bowl will be moved to the week between the Championship games and the SB


    Will that be a good thing? My guess is not too many players who will be in the SB will participate and the ones who lose in the Championship games will be too beat up.

    I don't care for the idea myself. There is always the the risk of injury to key players that would be playing in the SB.

    As it stands now, you still have players that played in the SB, that will be too beat up to play in the Pro Bowl, but at least they know after that game is over, they won't be playing in the SB a week later.

    This idea makes no sense to me whatsoever.
    Why would you put it before the SB so that none of the SB players can play, or for some crazy reason if they play, wear them out for the SB or even risk injury.
    This is one of the worst ideas the NFL has come with in a while.
    And taking it out of Honolulu possibly...r u on crack Goodell?

    It's a horrible idea. I'm not a big fan of the game itself...I'd just as soon have the players recognized for their All-Pro achievements and not even have a game. IMO, the best part of any "all-star" game is the opening introductions. I could not care less if they had a parade or an arm-wrestling match afterward.

    It's all about $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$.

    If the NFL makes more money having it the week before the Super Bowl, they'll continue to do so.

    At the conclusion of this Sunday’s Pro Bowl, the NFL will say “aloha” to the 2008 season. The league will also say “aloha” to the concept of playing its all-star game in Hawaii, for a little while at least....

    It must be part of Obama's stimulus package. It's as stupid as the other pork in there.

    Another reason they should get rid of Goodell.

    Re: Pro Bowl

    I like the pro bowl after the superbowl because it is a celebration week for the champions as well as all the players who get to go.
    Before the superbowl, at the superbowl site, kind of makes sense, but it would kind of be a rush job i think. the whole point of it being in hawaii, after the superbowl, is to allow the players to go and just enjoy the week and not worry about real football. its like the alst get together at the end of the season before players go their seperate ways into the offseason. like the final party at the end of summer camp.
