Didn't see Pro Bowl...was it better than last year and will it stay around?


Was the effort better? What does the future hold?

I watched 2 plays in the 4th quarter and the lineman looked like they were playing pattycake.

I watched the last drive before halftime where Eli led the NFC on a 70 yard scoring drive in the last minute. Cromartie didn't even bother to cover Vincent Jackson on a 15 yard out and then lightly tapped him out of bounds. I quit watching.

I didn't watch but I did hear a lot of players complimenting the intensity and quality of their effort

Which tells me they didn't do shit

First quarter and a half was decent.

Cool..was just wondering. It is Monday morning and there hasn't yeet been a national outpouring of rage, so I figured it must not have been too bad.

My interest in this game has steadily declined through the years. As a kid, I watched from start to finish...now, I think it has probably been at least 10 years since I even turned it on to watch at all.

I think that last night was the most I've watched this century.

I felt it was a little awkward when Al Michaels mentioned his "friends" who are clearly gambling associates. This happened in the first quarter and he was talking about the spread and the over/under.

Al does this in regular season games too.

I think since no one in Hawaii attends anymore, it definitely would be better somewhere else.

It needs to go. When you put all the high priced players together in one setting there's not much incentive to risk injury in a game like that particularly when some players haven't had game action in several weeks if not in the playoffs.

Get all the All Pros together at the Super Bowl locale and do some sort of skills competition followed by a massive autograph session. Fans might attend something like that.

There is no reason for it. It's basically 7 on 7.

No LB is going to step up and try to drop Marshawn Lynch to try to stop him from getting a first down.

Not only do players not play hard, but Football is the ultimate team game. This is not an MLB allstar game where it's Pitcher v. Batter, you have to trust and know where your players will be at all times to make a play effective. See Manning to Cruz.

Football is just a bad sport for an allstar/probowl game.

They should have some kind of Combine event where players earn points for their team and the team with the most points wins.(or something of that affect, I'm just spitballing here)

It was better than last year but still pretty lame. I liked them lining JJ Watt up in the wide out spot and trying to throw a TD to him.
