So the NFL stated that the 2010 Pro Bowl will be played one week BEFORE the Super Bowl. Hmm.....am I the only one that sees a problem with that? This could quite possibly be the dumbest idea ever. Does anybody have any idea on why they decided this???

I'll be honest . I don't even know why they play the Pro Bowl anyway. It's basically a glorified scrimmage.

This is definitely true. I honestly can't even watch the Pro Bowl anymore. Half of the originally voted players end up dropping out anyway. And now that they will play it before the Super Bowl how many guys do you actually think will play? Just an all around bad idea imo

There is alot about the Pro Bowl that needs changed. Playing it out of Hawaii and the week before the Super Bowl is just dumb

They are going to start playing it in the Super Bowl city I think. So, next year, the Pro Bowl will be in Miami on the Sunday before the Super Bowl. That way, it fills the gap between the Championship games and the Super Bowl.

Any Pro Bowlers that are in the Superbowl won't play.

People injured from the post season or regular season won't play.

Why don't they skip the game and just have some kind of ceremony, if they're determined to move the location and time?

The only thing I don't like about that, is that it will start forcing players to really play hard and go all out for any types of incentives...and I just think that would eventually lead to an unnecessary injury

very True ..so they sill need a reson to play for ??? the $$ for playing in it is very small I thik winning team gets 40g and 20g for the losers .. now thats alot for most of us ..

It almost seems like a shame to get rid of it....but I agree with you. Unless they can really figure out a great way to change it, I just almost think it would be better to just recognize them as Pro Bowlers and just give them some type of trophy/plaque etc...

i agree with the fact that they should just recognize the players that they would promote to the pro bowl and just hold a ceremony at the end of the season, including having the super bowl winning team do something.. anything would be better honestly
