  • Pro-Bowl Switch To SuperBowl Week!!!

    http://www.profootballtalk.com/2008/...l-on-the-move/

    The NFL wants to make the Pro Bowl relevant, and it has a surprising way of doing it: Move it to the week before the Super Bowl.

    Peter King of SI.com reports that this will probably be the last season that the Pro Bowl is played the week after the Super Bowl.

    Per King, the league likely will announce the moving of the game to the weekend before the Super Bowl, either on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday night, and make the Pro Bowl part of the week of hype leading up to the Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl will also most likely be played in the same stadium as the Super Bowl most years, instead of in Honolulu.

    That means that the 2010 Pro Bowl will be played on either January 30, January 31 or February 1 at Dolphins Stadium. It also means that no players from the two teams in the Super Bowl will play in the Pro Bowl, which means less star power for the league’s all-star game.


    I don't like the idea, because what if a player that is playing in the SuperBowl gets injured during the Pro-Bowl??? Not a good idea IMO. Discuss

    I don't like that idea either. Are they doing it so the players try even less? Who wants to go play another game in Miami? Going to Honolulu meant something. The Pro-Bowl has never been relevant, and still won't be relevant, this is just a ploy for the NFL to make more advertising money.

    edit: GL, the last paragraph there says superbowl players won't play in the game. So they want us to watch a game of NOT all the best players in the league? Dumbest idea ever.

      That couldn't happen. It says players from the SB teams cannot play in the Pro Bowl.

        Not that I ever watch the pro-Bowl anyways, but I don't like this at all.

        SB players not playing in Pro-Bowl? This makes the Pro-Bowl a bigger joke than it actually is!

          I think instead of playing a game ......The NFL should set up individual position skill competitions.. QB challenge,Fastest 40,Strongest Man etc and also have some type of team contest and tally the scores AFC vs NFC...Put big money up to earn for the winners and for charity donations and I think the NFL would have something worth watching then...

            i would much much rather watch individual competitions where players are trying all out instead of a half assed flag football game of popular football players.

              If they really want it to matter, hows-a-bout some blitzing? Or if they really want to make it interesting, maybe an 8th round of the draft for all the teams whos division wins?

              There are alot of ways to make it more interesting without putting it so close to the superbowl, thus eliminating SB players from playing.

              Goodell at his best.

                  The idea of having the Pro-bowl before the Superbowl is the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. Both teams that make it to the Superbowl will most likely have players that made it to the Pro-bowl. If the Pro-bowl is played before the Superbowl all the players won't have the time to rest, become prepared and increase the chances of becoming injured. I do not agree with this idea at all.

                    Way to make an irrelevant game even more irrelevant by removing players from the two best teams in the NFL.

                      And preferably a little closer to the 12:00 hour.

                        oh my....

                        well the ideal is...

                        the players from the two teams that make the superbowl WONT PLAY IN THE PRO BOWL...

                        its a stupid ideal cuz the players from the two teams in the superbowl miss out now on the pro bowl... nothing special but it does give players extra money for being voted into the pro bowl too...

                          I can't see the pro bowl being moved. You seem to have the best idea by making it more interesting. Remember its AFC vs. NFC and I am AFC all the way if broncos dont go I always root for the AFC. So how about the winning conference get more all home games vs. Non conferance teams or something better or more practical.

                              Ya, I know it's AFC vs NFC. For some reason I've always said division when I should say conference. My bad.

                              I like your idea as well. All they have to do is put something at stake, and it would be more appealing to watch.
