Brees Named a Pro Bowl Captain

"The new format was designed this year to add some spice to the annual all-star game. The best part of Thursday's news for Brees is that he won't be playing against Quinn, who sacked him twice in the Rams' 27-16 upset over New Orleans last month. But in a quirky new twist this year, Brees could wind up playing against Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan if he gets selected by the opposing team."

Re: Brees Named a Pro Bowl Captain

This format is beyond stupid, just do away with the Pro Bowl. Players should still be awarded the honor but do away with the game

Totally agree. Along with the honor,maybe include a bonus....or would that be looked at as pay for performance?

Re: Brees Named a Pro Bowl Captain

I know people bash the Pro Bowl (so do I) but I gotta admit, there was that one year that was really kinda fun, where Brees basically engineered this whole drive downfield to the goal line, culminating in a touchdown to Jimmy Graham, and they did the dunk and the high five together and everything. It was so transparent and obvious that play was coming, but still fun. They were having a blast. Then the rest of the game was useless misery.

Re: Brees Named a Pro Bowl Captain

Hmmm.... How can we take a game that nobody cares about and the players don't even play and make it even more ridiculous?

Get Deion Sanders involved!!

Re: Brees Named a Pro Bowl Captain

As a longtime fantasy football fan, I am actually a bit more interested. Fantasy sports has exploded and it is a good vehicle to bring in new viewership. Is the draft televised?
