The Pro Bowl is such a snooze-fest. I'd like to see some changes:

Players named to the Pro Bowl will now trade places with the cheerleaders. Players will dance around like idiots on the sidelines (since they love doing that in the end zone, anyway), only now, they'll be in tights. Perhaps that will keep them humble.

Cheerleaders shall play tackle football -- in lingerie.

I would watch that. Today's game? Horrible.

...i know Eric...the problem is...he only knows how to play one way...all out or nothing...well he doesn't get cheated. good to see Winfield do his thing...he comes to play also. the Kittens have a good one in Johnson...just that he doesn't look near as cool in Silver as he would in Purple...oh well...i hope the intelligentsia of the NFLPA and the league Nazis, get their ducks in order and straighten this shyt out: i'm already going through football withdrawal as it is and LF has some serious things he needs to get done...now if the Black and Gold can shred the cheesers; it will tide me over until the draft...GO VIKES!!!

An exhibition game is played harder, no rushing the kicker? LOL
I can understand watching the game for the love of Football, and being able to hear them adds a bit to the game as well.
But....it's still played with kids gloves, which in itself takes from the game.
Being a Vikings fan, I was sure AD would blow out his knee, effectively ending his career or something to that effect, lol.

"The NFC maintained at least a 17-point margin the rest of the way." But the final score was 55-41. Let's see, that's 10, 11, 12, 13, 14 points, right? It's time to go back to math class!
Hey, I had to find something to do during this game!

Of all the major sports all-star games this one is the worst. It's actually a travesty, like the way the point afters where the defense just stand there like 11 wooden indians. And then without players from the two best teams conference's playing, what a joke.

I can't help but wonder who's bright idea it was to play the pro bowl before the Super Bowl? Players from the Packer's and the Steeler's weren't going to be there, and over the years more and more players seem to be opting out. Many years back players loved to participate, they and their families got a free week in Hawaii. Now most of the players have enough dough to buy Hawaii, and they don't want to risk a career ending injury. The NFL has taken something that was ho-hum and boring, and turned it into a non-event.

Wake up my friend, they are/were in Hawaii..........pretty nice place. I doubt they were thinking that game was a travesty.

In the future, they can just say the game was played. THAT, my friends, was a game that was excruciating.

And what the heck was allowing a TV reporter "Jay Glazer" on the sideline and making a play call about? I think he harmed the game by throwing off the players. I bet FOX may not carry the game again anytime soon.

And that final TD was really not based on legal plays. It was just goofing around. And they added it to the final score. Okay, but don't count it.

The Pro Bowl has been made into a mockery. Football blasphemy I tell you!

I saw the 4th qtr and a little before. 2 things that were odd.......the Steeler girl fan kissing the guy Packer fan......and the guy running shirtless across the field. LOL. HA. HA. Now that was funny stuff.
