Not really, considering Romo is in the NFC. The overall quality of QBs in the AFC is a bit better, let's face it (understatement of the year).

Holy crap, people.
i know for alot of fans there is a sense of football withdrawl the week after the superbowl.

the pro bowl is like nfl methadone for the end of the season.

Hard to bitch about Brady going - Pats are a .500 team without him.

I agree with LITP that an all star football game is a joke - they do not let you blitz to try to avoid players getting hurt but injuries are unavoidable. The less Steelers playing in it the better as far as I am concerned.

LITP - was it a Pat running back (Robert Edwards?) who destroyed his knee and effectively ended his career in some beach/flag football exhibition nonsense at the Pro Bowl several years ago.
Yes it was.

Tragic injury after he put up over 1000 yards in his rookie season.

Im pretty sure he tried to make a come back a few years back as a Dolphins by the extent of his injuries but never regained his pre-injury zip.

It was especially galling as the Patriots had little luck around that time in drafting RB's (excpet for Curtis Martin who wasnt a 1st rounder like Edwards)

They've been great for a while now, three Super Bowls' worth of great. But only this season have the New England Patriots become The Show, the must-see team of stars, pretty boys and reformed bad boys. Suddenly, the Patriots are not simply great; they're compelling, fascinating, appearing to be almighty and a touch lawless.
The Patriots didn't bother with swagger to start this NFL season; they went straight to defiant. Either you're one of them or you're about to get crushed.
