With the Pro Bowl before the Super Bowl this year how is this going to work? Has anyone heard if the Pro Bowl selections from the Super Bowl teams will be there? I would think not but don't know.

The Pro Bowl players selected from the Super Bowl teams will not be allowed to play in the Pro Bowl. There will be alternates selected to take their place.

They usually don't play anyway. Well, the primadonnas from the Pats usually don't.

This comes off as a slap to the face of the folks who put on a great game in Hawaii each year. Move the Pro Bowl back to the proper time and place!

From what I understand the change is to prompt a weeklong NFL celebration. If you gotta stay on the mainland, might as well party in South beach!!!!

I always liked the pro bowl at the end of it all. It allowed just one more week to ease the withdrawal symptoms. 'Course I used to enjoy the old Chicago College All Star Game too.

Unhappy Maybe next year?

It's not going to be a problem for the Eagles players this year

I actually think it's a great move by the league - so many people tune out after the SB, not to mention there's some ball to watch on the week building up the Game now.
