    MEH 2014 Pro Bowl Changes

    Got a message on my phone from The Score:

    NFL players will be assigned to teams through the Pro Bowl Draft by Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders (who are captains). The NFL is eliminating the NFC/AFC Traditional match up and will be using a fantasy-like draft instead.

    No more kickoffs in the Pro Bowl either.

    They should just eliminate the game altogether. Voting should still occur, but just for the sake of being named to the Pro Bowl squad. I don't see how the changes they made are going to make the game any more watchable...

    So basically, we should call this the "Madden-Is-Real-One-Day-A-Year" Game... this is stupid.

    Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders? Are we back in the 80s smoking all kinds of crack?
    Joe Philbin says, "Jim Turner was a great coach. He made sure shoes were tied at all times and that no gum wrappers touched the field."

    I like it.

    The game will still be boring and meaningless, but it adds a hype factor in the drafting of players by captains. I have a feeling the draft itself will get more attention than the actual game. Should be interesting, and although you might hate it, I guarantee you will watch or read about who was drafted by who. Good marketing by the NFL.

    Seems like a last ditch effort before the cancel it. I don't blame them for trying to go all out.

    Just do away with this entire concept.

    The top players will be awarded by earning 1st, 2nd, and 3rd team All - Pro honors.

    All the pro bowl does is allow the 7th or 8th best player in the conference at his respective position to become labeled a "pro-bowl" player. This is how casual fans mistake them as top level players.
