Pro Bowl changes

What do you guys think about the Pro bowl changes? I just know one thing now that my boy Colston will never be one now. The guy gets no respect around the league now so if they have some draft I feel it's just going to show favor tesiom to player that they like and add player for the wrong reason. Look at what Jimmy Graham did this year and he was left off the top 100 that's all I'm saying.

Re: Pro Bowl changes

Im worried
The rule changes do not look they are being changed for the Pro Bowl.
If the TV numbers are better or if the talking heads in the media give them the thumbs up i fully expect a certain red faced buffoon to add them into regular season games.
No kick off-Less head trauma
No stopping the clock-More people watch the final minutes rather than switching over. etc etc

Rules
Game within the Game – A two-minute warning will be added to the first and third quarters and the ball will change hands after each quarter. This will increase the opportunities for quarterbacks to direct “two-minute drills,” which are especially exciting for fans.

No Kickoffs – The coin toss will determine which team is awarded possession first. The ball will be placed on the 25-yard line at the start of each quarter and after scoring plays.

Rosters – The rosters will continue to consist of 43 players per squad. The kick return specialist will be replaced by an additional defensive back.

Cover Two and Press Coverage – The defense will be permitted to play “cover two” and “press” coverage. In previous years, only “man” coverage was permitted, except for goal line situations.

Stopping of the Game Clock – Beginning at the two-minute mark of every quarter, if the offense does not gain at least one yard, the clock will stop as if the play were an incomplete pass. This rule will make the team with the ball attempt to gain yardage toward the end of each quarter.

Game Timing – The game clock will start after an incomplete pass on the signal of the referee, except inside the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half.

Play Clock – A 35-second/25-second play clock will be adopted instead of the typical 40-second/25-second clock.

Sacks – The game clock will not stop on quarterback sacks outside of the final two minutes of the game. Currently, the game clock stops in these situations outside of two minutes of the second and fourth quarters.

"Two receivers to the left, Garcon to the right. Manning in the shotgun, puts Collie in motion. Looks in his direction...it's picked off! It's picked off! It's Tracy Porter again! He's runnin' free! He's gonna go all the way!

Re: Pro Bowl changes

They wont make most of those changes to regular season...

Anything that shortens the length of a regular season game effectively lowers revenue for the NFL by cutting into commercial time blocks to sell.

Re: Pro Bowl changes

I don't even care. I haven't watched one in a very very long time. I heard Deion Sanders will be a coach or something... makes me not want to watch it even more.

I was attempting to watch NFL network last night and 9 toe Deion was interviewing Julio Jones... had to change the channel. What a fraud tv analyst.

Re: Pro Bowl changes

ALL of those changes to the Pro Bowl rules, Goodell has been trying for years to implement into regular season games. The owners have resisted but eventually they'll bow.

The Pro Bowl will be a road show sales booth for his ideal of the near future of the NFL.

Goodell is bad for the sport of football. I mean who the hell is this guy to cram rule changes down the throat of the entire sport of football?
