Default How embarrassing will this years Pro Bowl be?

Last year it was awful... linemen where literally just titty bumping each other... running backs ran about 1/4 speed... it was embarrassing... players promised to make it more competitive to keep it around... your thoughts?

Man, I hope not.
I don't want any Texans to tear an ACL in some meaningless game.

I think they should do away with the game and just do competitions for each position like in the Madden challenge.

Everybody thinks this. Everyone should realize that everyone thinks this.

Get rid of the game and bring back the skills challenge. QBs throwing through tires and such.

Here we go again. The game is what it is, and for some reason every year people expect differently and complain.

I would watch the crap out of a skills challenge.

How about a retired players flag football game?

Adrian Peterson believes that by playing down, you run the risk of injury, so he plans on playing hard. If no one else plays hard, expect a 200+ yard effort.

He will only be playing 1 quarter most likely, so if he runs for 200 in only one quarter, he deserves some kind of award.

I know Peyton was interviewed and is really trying to get people to play hard. Said how sad it would be if they did away with the game, Wilson has also said he's playing full speed so I guess we'll see.

I know but I meant a real award, not some crappy pro bowl MVP award, which went to Bmarsh last year, just saying.

I'd replace the game with the Hooters vs. Twin Peaks Bowl!
