    I find it dumb to have it before the SB because if I was on a team in the SB I would not want to play in the pro bowl.

    No SB team member is expected to play in the probowl. I agree the ting is dumb. Dumber still is having a game at all. They should do a skills exhibition instead. No one watches this dumb game anyway.

    There could be accuracy tests for QB's blocking ones for linemen, tackling, etc. The game itself is real boring anyway. I know I won't watch a minute of it let alon a quarter. Everyone bows out anyway. Plus coached by loser coaches? Nah! Not for me!

    and it is dumb that people are voted in. It should be all done by stats. The top 4 for each position it should be. you know so they each play a quarter.

    I've seen in interviews how many players have fun with it, and it does generate some money for the NFL.. They thought by putting it before the super bowl that it would generate more interest, but NOOOOO tackling!

    It's more like an awards ceremony, where everyone dresses nice, and kiss kiss..
    Quite silly.

    Most all star games are dumb. Only ones I've ever cared for are the old fashioned world versus Russia for Lev Yashin's retirement and other concentrations of all stars like that. NFL's is really dumb indeed!

    The only good all stars game is the NHL vs the World.

    Are you nuts???

    Take a look in that stadium today and tell me again that NO ONE watches the game.

    Who would care about a skills exhibition?? OH, I guess you would.

    LMAO at you. You call yourself a fan?? Of what?

    Watch the Pro Bowl today and you will see what the Cowboys are not.
    Jerry Jones will be there doing the same at the Super Bowl on his big tv.

    Good for you and them. I refuse to watch a single second of the boringest all star game of all. I did not sya I'd watch a skills contest, but that it would be more interesting than what we currently get. Also, placing it in the week before the SB after two highly exciting conference championships makes it even worse, dull, a game only relatives would like and relatives might watch. As it is I find the pro game less interesting than college ball. Can you think of a single pro game that compares to Texas-USC in the NCG a few years ago? There simply is no comparison.

    Are you somewhere in New England? I like the Celtics too. I'm a Mav's fan, but when the Mavs are no longer in it I root for the Celtics. Of course the Spurs have to be out of it too!

    Na, central cal.
    I liked Bball when MJ was on the bulls. But I don't have a team but I go for teams against the LA quakers. But I would like to see the suns play the heat this year for the finals. But I think the suns are not as good as last year.
