Anyone else enjoying this ? Been a good game so far. They are not making a mockery of the game as in gyears past. The players look to be having fun. And I love the AFC. Vs NFC format .

Well, I've stopped watching the Pro Bowl because it's just a scrimmage. I pretty much don't watch all star games for any sport, whether football, baseball, basketball, or hockey because they don't mean anything.

It used to always be AFC vs. NFC. People liked it better than "team Irvin" vs. "team Sanders"

Didn't watch it. The players don't care so why should I? I think this is an outdated tradition that the NFL should end.

The NFL should add some kind of incentives like scheduling advantages for points or plays or a win. The logistics might be hard but it would probably add a little more excitement to the game.

The game has become an embarrassment and it should finally be put to rest. Attendance yesterday was not good and for all the right reasons.

Well I wonder why you even responded.

Since you didn't watch it, I'm not interested in your opinion or non-experience about it.

I enjoyed it. That AFC had a bit of No-fly zone going on and there was some good tackling.

I was flipping back and forth between this game and the NFL channel's recap of past Super Bowls.

It's a knee-jerk reaction to bash the Pro Bowl but it was actually pretty entertaining this time.

I watched less than half the 1st quarter... but the final score (20-13) tells me that even the NFL didn't want this type of game. They want a shoot out. A 44-41 type of game.... but the players just don't care enough to put forth too much effort.. The few minutes i watched.. they were not even tackling.. Elliott went up the middle on a run and they simply swarmed him to a stop after a few yards.. i don't blame 'em but don't try to sell this for something its not..

I don't know how you fix the pro bowl... but you can't ask these guys to go risk millions of dollars on an exhibition game. You just can't. You either going to have to bring in players (non pro bowl types) and offer them a big $ to play, bigger for the winner and even bigger for the MVP. If you got a 1st year guy making 600k and you give him 600k just for one game.. he's gonna play and he is gonna play hard.. Or you could simply have the Pro Bowlers play flag football... divide 'em up into 4 or 8 teams.. and have a little tournament.. flag football. Do something because what they are doing now, is NOT good and its NOT WORKING>. JMO.
