Pro Bowel

leave a comment »

So the Pro Bowl is today. In Miami. And a week before the Super Bowl.

Is all this REALLY necessary?

I’m not against change, and I can appreciated wanting to do something in the one-week layoff from the conference championship round and the Big Game. However, this ain’t it.

1) Keep the Pro Bowl in Hawaii. It gives the players something to look forward to at season’s end.

2) Make the Pro Bowl after the season. Players who are playing in the Super Bowl can’t take part in the game, and if you’re a player who just lost a conference championship game, do you want to be playing THIS game the week after?

The NFL is different than the NHL, NBA and MLB in that this all-star game takes place after the regular season instead of mid-season. It’s not as hyped up as the other all-start games, but it doesn’t have to be. Do you think a MLB all-star game would get a similar “ho hum” effect if its exhibition contest was played a week after the World Series? I bet it would be.

NFL, your league is hella successful. There’s nothing wrong with trying something new, but the Pro Bowl is what it is. And no matter what you do, it’s not going to be any different.
