    NFL Pro Bowl

    The NFL is considering ways to improve the Pro Bowl including the possibility of scrapping it all together. If you are the NFL commissioner, how would you improve the Pro Bowl? If you end the Pro Bowl, what would you replace it with?

    The pro bowl was great back in the 70's because the players were playing for money. Now for the past 20+ years with the higher salaries, elementary flag football is more exciting. Replace it with Adams College greek games. At least we will get some dam good PI.

    Let's have Pro's versus Joe's. We need some 50-year-old message board smack talker trying to bring down Derrick Henry. That would be great TV.

    Honestly what I would do is have them play the game like a real football game with one big exception- that's the play is dead once the QB is touched. And if you tackle the QB it's a personal foul. Like a spring game. I think they should allow blitzing and things like that though.

    They will keep it only if it makes the league money.

    Make a fair part of their pay dependent on making and winning the Pro-Bowl - the way it used to be. Or have the rich whiners opt out of the Pro-Bowl and let those who need the extra income play.
