The Pro-Bowl Is a Bad Joke: How the NFL Can Draw Fan Interest

The most contact the Pro Bowl has seen in 10 years.

It's been over a month since the AFC beat the NFC in the annual Pro Bowl game. If you're like most fans you can't stop talking about the...talking about the...big hits! No, that's not right. You can't stop talking about the pressure those crazy blitz schemes!! Nope, sorry, wrong again. Oh, that's right! You can't stop talking about how insulting the Pro Bowl is for fans.

We love hits.

We love LeGarrette Blount running over entire teams.

We love a delayed blitz where Clay Mathews gets to the QB just before he notices.

So why bother continuing with this joke? I for one vote to kill it. Kill it with fire. At the same time, let's get our pros together to have some televised fun. Maybe even some craziness. The league can start slow, it doesn't have to immediately be a weekend of Japanese game shows...although I'd personally vote for that.

Read on to see my suggestions.  You may disagree but I'm sure we can all settle on one commonality— ANYTHING IS BETTER THAN THE CURRENT PRO BOWL.

(*Also, I wanted to think about something other than BountyGate.)
