Default Re: Possible Pro Bowl Change

For the record, I'm fine with the pro bowl how it is. I still tune in if I'm not doing anything and watch.

There are still periods in the game where you get players really playing and those times are worth it for me.


But I like to mentally masturbate so...

If they want to make a change to the game they could do something like what Herv stated...

But instead of mentoring players like Tkyss said, maybe they could do live drills...just like you'd have at training camp....One on ones with OL/DL...7 on 7 stuff with Offense LB's and DB's...So some of the players going into the draft could get some actual work against pro-bowlers....

Do that for a week and televise it all and then at the end, have all the NFL players hanging out on the sidelines of their squads and let the college players play the actual game. It's just be like another form of the senior bowl....Another tool to evaluate incoming prospects, but at the same time you have the actual pro-bowlers doing football related activities.

Maybe a mash up of My idea, Herv's idea and TK's idea...Pro-bowl players doing various drills with college players all week and filming the practices....College players playing the actual game...and the NFL players mentoring and coaching up the youngsters the whole time...

*They could even use it to globalize the game and host it in different countries and allow select players from those countries to participate and have them play in the games as well.

Who wouldn't watch that? I think that'd be like one of the most viewed NFL related events for several reasons....

*I'd love to see the game globalized to where it could become an Olympic sport. That would be a loooong way away and may never happen, but it would be cool to see a team USA football team going against the rest of the world in a play-off style tournament.
