  • Pro Bowl

    I dont know about everybody else,but I love the Pro bowl

    Last game of the season,season sure went by FAST!

    We get to see some Rams play.

    Hoping Torry gets MVP.

    The Uniforms are cool(well at least the NFC unis are cool).

    I wish they still had the Supe Champs play the college all stars I really miss that.

            Those games were awesome and very entertaining. Here's something I found on them:

            Arch Ward, the sports editor of the Chicago Tribune, in 1934 came up with the idea of a pre-season game between the NFL champions and a team of college all-stars to benefit the newspaper's charity fund. All of the games were played at Soldier Field in Chicago.

            The first meeting, on Aug. 31, 1934, ended in a scoreless tie. In the early years, the college players did pretty well against the pros. The NFL champions dominated in later years, however, losing only once after 1955.

            In 1976, the game was suspended and finally called off because of a heavy rainstorm late in the third quarter, with the Pittsburgh Steelers holding a 24-0 lead.

            That was the last game of the series. There were two main reasons for the demise. First, pro football salaries had reached a much higher level, many college players who were unwilling to take part in the game for fear of injury. Second, fan interest had declined substantially because of the NFL's dominance.

                    Maybe this is not for this thread, but it seems that I'm still aggravated by the officiating in the last SB, but again in the Pro Bowl, a couple of minutes ago, they didn't rule a safety for a fumble on a Punt Return, and let me tell you something, there is NO WAY the ump #56 couldn't see that ball hitting mathis on the leg. Is freaggin frustrating see were the officiating is going.
                    I know is the pro bowl and everybody is having fun, but is SO FRUSTRATING watch those "professionals" acting like clowns

                        The very first game that the rams played as the LA rams was against the college all stars in 1946.

                        ramming speed to all

                          RAMS in the pro bowl!!
                          by CanadianRam!
                          as pro bowl ending is just about to end, cbs has an article about the guys they think should be on the pro bowl team.

                          In the NFC, there are two :helmet: players listed

                          anyways herez the article...enjoy!

                          NFC offense
                          QB: Matt Hasselbeck, Seahawks. Reserves: Eli Manning, Giants; Mark Brunell, Redskins.
                          Comment: This is really a down year for NFC quarterbacks, so Hasselbeck takes the start almost by default. The reserves? Somebody has to go.

                          RB: Starters: Shaun Alexander, Seahawks. Reserves: Tiki Barber, Giants; Warrick Dunn, Falcons.
                          Comment: Alexander is having an MVP-like season, so he gets the start. Dunn edges out Washington's Clinton Portis for the final spot.

                          FB: Starter: Mack Strong, Seahawks.
                          Comment: He's the guy leading Alexander to all those yards.

                          WR: Starters: Steve Smith, Carolina; Larry Fitzgerald, Arizona. Reserves: Santana Moss, Redskins; Joey Galloway, Bucs.
                          Comment: Smith is an MVP candidate, while Fitzgerald has put up huge numbers with the Cardinals. Moss has cooled some, while Galloway is having his best year since 1998.

                          TE: Starter: Alge Crumpler, Falcons. Reserve: Jeremy Shockey, Giants.
                          Comment: Clearly they are the two best in the NFC. Washington's Chris Cooley is a riser who just misses.

                          T: Starters: Walter Jones, Seahawks; Jon Jansen, Redskins. Reserve: Orlando Pace, Rams.
                          Comment: Jones is the league's best tackle, while Jansen gets the nod in a weak right tackle group. Pace is still a heck of a player.

                          G: Starters: Steve Hutchinson, Seahawks; Chris Snee, Giants. Reserve: Larry Allen, Cowboys.
                          Comment: Hutchinson and Jones make up the best side of any line in the league. Snee is a real comer who will be a perennial choice here.

                          C: Starter: Olin Kreutz, Bears. Reserve: LeCharles Bentley, Saints.
                          Comment: When he's not breaking teammates' jaws, Kreutz is a heck of a player. Bentley would get more notice on a better team.

                          K: Neil Rackers, Cardinals.
                          Comment: He has missed one field-goal attempt all season, making 34 of 35. That's amazing.


                          NFC defense
                          DE: Starters: Mike Strahan, Giants; Will Smith, Saints. Reserve: Adewale Ogunleye, Bears.
                          Comment: Strahan lowered his body weight, but his production didn't drop. Smith has quietly developed into a star.

                          DT: Starters: Rod Coleman, Falcons; Tommie Harris, Bears. Reserve: La'Roi Glover, Cowboys.
                          Comment: Coleman is a sack guy inside, while Harris has emerged as a dominant player for a good Bears defense.

                          OLB: Starters: Lance Briggs, Bears; Derrick Brooks, Bucs. Reserve: Karlos Dansby, Cardinals.
                          Comment: Briggs is a rising star, while Brooks is a veteran who continues to play at a high level. Dansby could be a starter in years to come.

                          ILB:...
