I was among the last of a dying breed. I really enjoyed the Pro Bowls. I watched them when they were in Prime Time Television, on real networks, not cable.
I liked when the game was played after the Super Bowl, so you could see the very best players participate. Nowadays, it’s a farce.
The players barely care, and their effort shows this.
There will be no Tom Brady. No Ndomakong Suh. And No Effort from anyone who’s out on the field.
The rules are there for safety, but the no blitzing rule has pretty much evolved into No Pass Rushing at all. Contact is fun and friendly, and nothing seems to go at full speed. Coaches treat the game like it’s Madden 2019, with numerous fake punts and trick plays. It’s all in good fun, but it makes for bad football.
In any event, Xavien Howard will represent the Dolphins. I care that he is there. hope he showcases his skills well and gets a big contract extension once he gets back home!
Speaking of All Pros, what do you guys think of the rumors of LeVeon Bell coming to town…?
