I struggled to watch the entire first quarter. It's still boring. The players aren't even taking it serious. The Pro Bowl needs to simply go away and never come back.

At least the D-lineman this year were actually getting to the QBs. Although it looked like the D-lineman were going about 60% so I guess the O-lineman must have been really dogging it. Maybe they had a buffet brunch before the game?

It is not regular football but it is better than the previous 2 years. I like that players can end up playing against their own teammates. Low scoring compared to previous years, and they sack the QB.

They relaxed the pass coverage rules this year so that the defensive backs can now play bump and run, and man to man. It has made a big difference in that previously QB's didn't have to wait around looking for someone to get open, someone was always open and it was pass and catch. Now they are delayed while trying to find an open man and are getting sacked because the line play is so powder puff.

I think this year's game has been pretty entertaining, definitely much better than in the past. I like seeing some of the teammates playing against each other in this one.

I noticed that the QB goes down as soon as he is grabbed.....and no stiff arms so far either.

Hopefully no one gets hurt

Haven't watched more than 5 minutes of the game, but I can say what I've seen has been infinitely more entertaining than the Grammys.

It was ok in my opinion.. It's hard to expect them to be too competitive. I never had an issue with the pro bowl, it's suppose to be a goofy fun game.

I wouldn't mind seeing a skills challenge.

Anyone who watched that nonsense played right into their hands.

I turned on TV and checked TV guide .

I will definitely watch the Super Bowl but when I saw...........Pro Bowl.........listed, I opted for an old Forensic Files program instead.

Sure different than the MLB All Star games where all players ( hitters and pitchers) want to show their best.

I know, I know............injuries in football all star games are a concern.

But playing solely to eliminate that concern is why they shouldn't even play the game..........( imho )
