(NFL)   NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell says the Pro Bowl was "real football." Mostly because there was only one team member from both the Raiders and Jaguars on the roster   ( nfl.com) divider line

I played football in the 7th grade, and that's about how hard I remember getting hit.  I watched the first quarter, and it's what I expect from the pro-bowl.  You certainly don't want your top talent to miss a season over a dumb injury in a meaningless exhibition game. It's more balanced than the NHL or NBA all-star games, which are blatant score fests where no one plays defense.

I watched the draft. It was way too long but kind of cool I guess. Missed the game though.

It was a meaningless game with few hard hits, ugly uniforms, and defensive players jogging toward people running with the ball (who chose to conveniently step out-of-bounds so they didn't get hit and didn't humiliate the defense).

I managed to make it to half time before Pre-February-Sweeps week reruns became more interesting to me

/Time to get rid of that game. The effort there is slightly less than that of scripted pro wrestling. At least wrestlers break a sweat as they follow the script.

...yes, I'm sure no head coaching experience Mike Pettine will be the Andy Reid of 2014.

/Horrid clock management aside, I'd rather have Reid.

Bazzlex001: Still too many Texans!


The Texans have some really good players.  Remember, they were one of the best teams in the league in 2013.  The have about half a dozen players who are among the top five at their respective positions.  The 2014 team lacked depth, but it was great at the top.

They could be dangerous next year, especially since they're moving from having one of the toughest schedules in the league to one of the easiest.

if you people really cared about eliminating things based on "lack of effort" then there would be nothing of culture left around.

I thought the first half somewhat resembled an actual game more that the pro bowl has in the past.  Everyone eased up and the second half looked like past pro bowls.
