Earlier this year I was with the NFL Network and I worked the entire week in preparation for the Pro Bowl. I really liked it.
The new format of picking your own team was a fun concept that I am glad the NFL adopted from the NHL. The uniforms weren’t all great, but it was nice to see something different. Overall, I actually had more interest in the Pro Bowl than I had in years past.
With this new announcement, I hope this generates more interest. It’s still the Pro Bowl, a meaningless exhibition game. But at least to me it’s more fun now. I like it.
