The NFL Pro Bowl is your 5th grade gym class with dodgeball, relay races

This is weird. Pro Bowl week will now feature dodgeball and relay races. They will also have a passing accuracy challenge and a QB/WR drill portion. But dodgeball and relay races? Like gym class?

Competitions include:

  • Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball: Pro Bowlers will compete in a game of dodgeball.
  • Power Relay Challenge: Four team members will compete in a timed relay race.

OK, this is going to be weird to have football players at the football all-star week doing non-football related things. Aaron Rodgers throwing an 80 MPH dodgeball to send someone into concussion protocol? A guy pulls a hamstring running a relay race?

This is your gym class all over again.
