    Pro bowl on the move?

    Now it counts, Part Deux?

    Posted by Michael David Smith on November 24, 2008, 2:23 p.m.
    The NFL wants to make the Pro Bowl relevant, and it has a surprising way of doing it: Move it to the week before the Super Bowl.

    Peter King of SI.com reports that this will probably be the last season that the Pro Bowl is played the week after the Super Bowl.

    Per King, the league likely will announce the moving of the game to the weekend before the Super Bowl, either on Saturday, Sunday, or Monday night, and make the Pro Bowl part of the week of hype leading up to the Super Bowl. The Pro Bowl will also most likely be played in the same stadium as the Super Bowl most years, instead of in Honolulu.

    That means that the 2010 Pro Bowl will be played on either January 30, January 31 or February 1 at Dolphins Stadium. It also means that no players from the two teams in the Super Bowl will play in the Pro Bowl, which means less star power for the league’s all-star game.

    That could either be good or bad.

    Probably bad for the players, who lose their vacation. But I suppose they can easily go on their own.

    Good for the league? I think the actual game rules need to be changed before people start to take the pro bowl seriously. The game is pretty much a joke at this point. I mean, why even play on defense?
