Default Pro Bowl Is A Joke

In my opinion the NFL has screwed the Pro Bowl up very badly this year. With the game being played this weekend, the weekend Before the Super Bowl is crazy. The AFC is down to David Garrard as a QB in the Pro Bowl.. that is a joke..
But I am glad to see that TE Heath Miller made it in to take Dallas Clark's place..

Couldn't agree more with you Dave. Watch the ratings tank for the game (were never really that high to begin with). Heck, Jacksonville cannot even get its own fans to watch David Garrard, let alone the rest of the NFL fans.

I don't know how I would feel about making the Pro Bowl if I was Heath. I am glad he made it and is deserving of it and should have been on the roster right from the get go, not having to be a sub for someone who won't be there.

It's been a joke for many years. The fan voting helps a lot in making it a joke.

Now playing it the week before the Super Bowl and losing 14 starts just because of that fact alone makes it an even bigger joke.

No Manning, no Brady, no Roethlisberger for the AFC.

No Brees, no Favre for the NFC.

I mean come on, Garrard?

I am not a fan of the Pro bowl either. Like others has stated playing it a week before the superbowl alot of your good players will not even be going cause of this. They don't play hard they are just there for show.

David Garrard scored 18 touchdowns in 10 games, its not too shabby..... but looking at the AFC quarterbacks... you're lucky Flacco isn't at the pro bowl, because he was actually the next best quarterback statistically below Ben..

and this year 11 quarterbacks made the pro bowl... lol
13 recievers
12 safties, which is actually good to see, usually its around 3 per team.. we might see Troy be in there, because he was leading all players in fan votes after missing like 8 games... lol

I am a fan of the Pro Bowl. I think it's a chance to see the best players just having fun with the game. It should continue to be played in Hawaii the week AFTER the SuperBowl. I mean look how many of the leagues best players are opting out. When has that ever happened ? Not to mention anyone from the SuperBowls teams sure won't be playing.

Default Re: Pro Bowl Is A Joke

Don't worry...the ratings will tank this year and Good(for_nothing)dell will have to move it back to it's original time-frame-----after the SB.

It just amazes me that Rozelle (spelling?) and Tagliabue did so much to enhance and advance the NFL and this joker is just messing (the word I'm thinking of actually starts with an "F") it up one stupid move at a time. The dumbass wants to take two of the 4 pre-season games and turn them into regular season games just to be able to generate more revenue for the NFL. Now, the pre-season games can be a little tedious, but how does a coach evaluate his players in order to be able to get down to a 53-man roster in just 2 pre-season games?

I just wish SuperBowl was a "week" after the Conference playoff final, just like the other 18 or so weekly regular games....
oh ya, I forgot PRO-BULL, well can someone please stick that in a time slot roughly 2-weeks or more AFTER the SuperBowl. ?!
and no, I'm not an advertising executive who shoiuld know better ?, :), blah, blah, blah....
It should be like the NHL,..., and others, Just keep playin' weekly -until the fat-lady-sings. All the rest is just BS-media-hype.

...actually, and in a personal way, Pro-BULL timing is a little relaxing, since my family will be gratiously suprised that the "TV-remote" is not locked this Sunday, and the wife will be happy that the den is finally getting painted this weekend.
The moral of this is, " Somtimes there is a wonderful surprise under any hardship that we must endure." and its not always bad in the long run.
