So far it's more exciting than the Bills vs Jags playoff game. Same score too.

Von Miller came through pretty hard on Russel Wilson. Poor Wilson, even in the pro bowl his line still lets defenders hit him.

Mike Daniels jumped offside big time on a 4th down play, players were pointing at him! NFC had an INT right after so no big deal.

Yes, it used to be just like any other football game. Unfortunately Super Bowl players who were picked also played and many a person saw their team's chances of winning said SB vanish when players got injured. Last time I watched a Pro Bowl, they were played in Hawai'i every year.

Glad Von Miller won defense MVP.

Yay, AFC!

Turned out to be a much better game than in years past. Lots of early whistles, but towards the end, the intensity picked up a bit.
I think it sad that while Roger Goodell was telling everyone to respect the game, he himself did not even take time to show up.

Hope they stay in Orlando, I wanted to go this year but will for certain next year if they are here

They also played it after the Super Bowl in Hawaii. Kind of like leftovers for us to get one last taste of football for several months.
I can't imagine guys like Jack Lambert or Randy White going out there and toning it down. Or Jack Tatum being told not to hit anyone.

Saw a bit of the 4th quarter. No tackling is weird. The future of the game?! Probably. haha Seems pointless to me. I mean do tackles cause as many injuries as sharp cuts and plain old bad luck? I dunno. I might agree that flag football would be better than that, which looked like a bunch of guys not really trying.

I haven't seen a pro bowl since they played in Hawai'i. Have to say rainy Orlando is no substitute.
