I remember that, guess it taught that punter not to run a fake punt again lol he was a great safety, taken way too early when he was defending his family from an armed intruder

If they gonna play it they need to put some kinda incentives in it that will make it worth the players put themselves at risk for next season

Re: Pro Bowl: Your Thoughts

I've been bouncing back and forth between channels; I hope we have some defensive players make it next year.

Wouldn't that be something if we draft next years defensive rookie of the year

Watched it last night.



Forgot what it was like to not have to cringe over Drews passes getting dropped.

Re: Pro Bowl: Your Thoughts

It's an exhibition game. Along those lines, I think I'd rather just see them schedule more games in Europe or abroad. I saw this article on YahooSports this morning: Players defend Pro Bowl after 62-35 NFC win - Yahoo! Sports and it just kind of emphasized to me why I don't think the game should be played.

It's not competitive. Last years barrel roll by Jared Allen and this years snapping of the ball to Manning one last time by Jeff Saturday (Jeff Saturday snaps to Peyton Manning one last time | Daily World | dailyworld.com) just kind of give the ProBowl a 'professional wrestling' type of feel, IMO.

I think it's great they're having fun and doing the symbolic 'last snap' thing between two players who had great careers together, but do it on your own time & on your own dime, eh? It does nothing but support the argument that the players don't compete and for discontinuing the ProBowl. If they want to play 'sandlot' ball, have the players throw their own party, don't expect the league or the fans to fund it.

... my thoughts anyway.
