Seriously. The Pro Bowl this year will be the week before the Super Bowl so no team going to the Super Bowl is going to let their players play in the Pro Bowl.

(Obviously we should all still vote just in case things don't go our way in the play-offs.)

They should get rid of the actual game. Put the Pro Bowl teams on Madden and sim it, airing it live on ESPN. Have real life commentators comment on the video game.

Re: I Hope None of our Saints go to the Pro Bowl!

lol. It's almost gotten to that point. Players love the Pro Bowl though and truth be told it's more a reward for them than for the fans. But it does blow that If we accomplish our ultimate goal then our guys won't be able to participate.

However, if you are nominated, you till get the tag of "Pro Bowl [insert position here]" whether you go or not.

Horrible idea to try and save a completely useless game. However, the worst injury happened in a flag football game on the beach at the Pro Bowl. Not during it.

The pro bowl is a terrible idea. This is football,

not soccer.

Football is war. You dont have an exhibition war.

Do we get to vote? I cant remember. (thats how much I care about the
Pro Bowl.) Well if we do, everybody vote for Matt Ryan, and Michael Turner. Let them play the Pro Bowl. There's only one Bowl I care about.

Re: I Hope None of our Saints go to the Pro Bowl!

Agreed. The pro bowl is totally useless. I honestly don't believe the players are all that thrilled either. Maybe some of the younger guys for the first time, but not most. Heck, most guys fake a finger nail injury or something to just get out of having to do it. Well, that is except for Peyton Manning, he seems to be the only one who enjoys playing in that game... LOL

Guess I'm the only one that likes it... it's fun. I enjoying watching the interviews when the players aren't all uptight thinking about smashing someone's head in. It's lightens up the mood and they're all out there just having fun.

Actually I want to like it, I want to get into it. Maybe this might change my attitude about it and give me something to do until the actual SB.

Until now I thought the BLUE GRAY game was more interesting...
