Aright, So I read an article saying that Goodell mentioned getting rid of the Pro Bowl in the near future. Honestly, not all that bad of an idea.
Yes. I know it's an honor for a player to be voted in.
Yes. It gives us a game between the conference championships and superbowl. But is it really a game? No.
The Pro Bowl has wayyyyyyy too many rules (must be a 4-3 defense, little to know blitzing, etc.) I know the rules are their because the game is insignificant, and they want to keep the players safe. It's smart. I can't blame them.
I vote that instead of voting players to play in the ProBowl, we vote the best players to just compete in the skills competition. It's always more fun than the game and we wouldn't have to be let down (as fans) because there wouldn't be a game anyway.
If they do, in fact, keep the ProBowl. Then it should either be modeled after the MLB where the game actually means something for the superbowl (it would be difficult to do this though because of so few games in the season and the superbowl is at a neutral location) or the NHL (pick 2 team captains and they pick their teams where afc and nfc doesn't matter). This would just make it interesting, or at least more interesting than it is right now.
So what do you guys think?
