That would probably be worth watching. I know I would definitely tune in to see the Texans get some love. Pro-Bowl football game, not a chance I watch that.
thats what they do here for the australian rules football. and everyone watches it. NFL would get heaps for media attention then their pro bowl

That's actually a real good idea, an awards show!

You should feed this idea to the NFL

Who cares? The PB's a joke anyway. Heck, half the players going will be practice squaders by the time the game comes around.

They've gotten rid of the best part of PB week, the skills challenge

Make it a skills competition. QBs have to throw a football through a series of tire swings at various distances. RBs and WRs can have a speed and catching drill. Punters and Kickers have an accuracy and distance competition.

And then, at the end of the day, for hilarity sake, there will be a 100 yard dash between the Nose Tackles!

I agree.....I think they should scrap the game.....
Have some kind of dinner/presentation of the players myself

The Probowl is the biggest joke ......I could care less to see any Texan play in it......
I dont blame Arian for not playing in it.....I mean if you were fixing to get a contract and you got injured in that who cares game would you? Hell....I would be making up a injury myself....lol

Kudos to Foster....he aint dumb that is for sure......

Default Re: Arian Foster out of the Pro Bowl

They could have the skills contest then have a competition for fams on Madden NFL and the winners of the Madden contest get to play the PB game on TV using the players selected. I don;t play Madden, so I have no idea why I thought of this.
