Nah. Did you see the lines. No blocking. No pass rush. I was a pitiful display.

I agree! This is why I never watch this game. Great players but they don't play.

I saw one minute of the Pro Bowl... and turned it off. They were just going through the motions out there. Lingerie football is more competitive than that crap that was on TV.

ProBowl is a great vacation for the players to take their families on. It is more money for being there.
It is boost up in contract leverage.
It is an honor to be selected to the Probowl due to the players' year. They NFL, players, etc., socialize, network. I know you know all that, I am just repeating it to make my point.
The Probowl game, itself, is just flag football. I cannot say I blame any of the players. Who would want to be injured for playing real season football in a game that counts for nothing.

I used to watch some of it sometimes when the NFL had the ProBowl scheduled after the SB.
I could never understand placing it before the SB. Teams who are in the SB cannot let their players be there.

I never thought you should expect an all out "Rock'em, Sock'em Robot" type of game anyway. That's why i never watched. It's for the fans to see as many NFL stars in one setting as possible. I don't blame any of the players either. It's a social setting. Nothing more, nothing less! The risk is too great! I would love to be there in person. But to watch?...That's ok!

So that crap the Rodger's was saying, is a result of his wanting it to be his Super Bowl replacement game. Get over it...DISCOUNT DOUBLE CHECK!!!
