    Just one week away! Here's to hoping that Mario, Dre, and OD represent our franchise well. :fans:

    Not for the game itself, but I'll probably watch just to see our boys play. I'm happy MW got to go, but I'm stoked OD's been given the opportunity.

    I just don't want anyone to get hurt.
    I love watching my guys in the pro-bowl, but deep down I cringe when someone gets taken down hard. Thats the last thing you want is a ACL in a meaningless game.

    I could care less about the outcome. But this is the first time we've had this much representation in the Pro Bowl, so it should be pretty exciting.

    That's the truth. You think Brees will be going back to the Pro Bowl any time soon? I doubt it.

    The fact that they play less than 100% speed in that game probably increases their chances of injury.

    Not me.

    I don't think I've been excited by a Pro Bowl since the 70's.

    Yeah, but the Pro Bowl Challenge is pretty entertaining. It's nice to see all the players in a more relaxed atmosphere and goofing on each other. AJ usually competes very well in the Challenge. I wonder if MW and OD will compete in anything. :thinking:

    The Pro Bowl is OK, but I would rather watch the Combine and the Draft. I can't remember the last time I sat down and watched the Pro Bowl.

    I'll watch some of the pro bowl, but all it really does is serve to remind me of the long drought of no football ahead.

    Agreed.

    I really hate the game, though, because of the injury risk. I'll hope that MW, OD, and AJ do well but I'll be cringing until they get off the field.

    Perhaps being able to tie in some sort of meaning to the game would make it better. As it is, who really cares who wins much?

    That said, I'll record it, and use it to rewatch for a week of the offseason blues...
