I like the Skills competition but as cool as it sounds on paper to have the elite (or fan favorites) play each other, it's really just an extra game that has more risk than excitement for the players (I mean, look at all the opt outs in recent years).
Have a fan exhibition for autographs and pictures on Saturday and the Skills competition on Sunday and call it a day.
They aren’t built the same as when I was growing up, they use to play the pro bowl with the same intensity as a regular game. Will never forget Sean Taylor(RIP) laying out the punter on a fake punt lol. Those days are absolutely over though.
1. I usually don’t watch the NFL… 2. The NFL is a bunch of overpaid guys… 3. NFL players need to stay out of politics…
Since, we seem to be true NFL fans then just remember when the ex UGA player Robert Edwards tore up a knee during a flag game on beach during Pro bowl week festivities. He was never the same and pro bowl was watered down to what it is today.
SAFETY first….wait Hunter Renfrow for a toe tapping TD! You can still see the talent. ENJOY!
Yea I agree but you know it has to be touch and go on how much you pitch a guy. If I was playing to win and my pitcher came in and struck out the side I’m not thinking I would be taking him out just because it’s an All Star game.
