    How important is the Pro Bowl

    After reading an article in ESPN the Magazine this month it made me realize how important it is to send players from teams to Hawaii.

    The magazine reported how Owens and McNabb hooked up. It talks about the two hitting it off at the Pro Bowl and how McNabb did EVERYTHING in his power to get the guy to Philly. It really made me stop and think about how people meet each other and talk about the different organizations and how much a player can influence someone coming to the organization. So that voting time is here, I can appreciate how important it is that we get guys like Holt, Faulk, Bruce, Pace to the game. And when the time comes and people turn down the invitations because of "injuries" or being a hassle, they are really letting down a team not just themselves. The Pro Bowl is a networking devise that teams can really take advantage of and I never thought in those terms before.

    You're right, but only to a certain extent. It really doesn't matter how much "networking" you do, when the salary cap constraints of your club makes it prohibitive to sign quality free agents.
