I know many of you couldn't care less about the Pro Bowl.

With that said: Who do you think will win?

Based on the players I'll take Team Irvin +2. Could come down to Vinatieri... who knows.

I don't watch the Pro Bowl. I don't watch any All-Star games from any sport. I don't consider them games, as there is nothing at stake.

But, give credit where credit is due - recognition for being a top player in your sport. So I commend the players who are in the Pro Bowl because they were recognized as great players this year.

I'm in the same camp - what is the point of the Pro Bowl?

I'm watching now...Team Irvin ahead 9-7. Guess they kick off every quarter, that's different. It's interesting to see the top players that we don't always get to see play (although I realize they aren't trying all that hard). At least it's a game to watch! Richard Sherman was on the sidelines and just got interviewed. Luck has thrown for 2 TD's so far.

I'm watching also. I like it. Fun to see players getting along from other teams & playing on same team. Plus having players mic'd up is interesting to hear a little about what's spoken on the field. I think some players are trying a little harder than other years. Watt was just stating that the O line is chipping him & he's begging coach to let him go back in because he's not that tired, while he's huffing & puffing & can hardly talk.

i wouldnt say that. teh nascar all star event has something like $1 million payout for the winner of the all star event. but then race drivers are a different breed than other people, they will compete just because there is a race, even with nothing on the line except their pride.
