Imagine how good he could be if he had a good quarterback throwing to him every game...

Let's see, we have the best running back in football, maybe of all time. We now have probably one of the best tight ends in football. We have Percy who is probably one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. We probably should put Webb back at a wide receiver spot which was what he was drafted to be, and then check on a few free agents with ambitious attitudes. So, where is the weak link? It isn't hard to figure out.

Baseball's All Star game was much like the Pro Bowl... interesting but meaningless and boring, until the prize became home field advantage in the World Series. This has to happen in football. There has to be some incentive or get rid of it. I do not blame one single player for taking it easy out there and why should they risk a career ending injury on this meaningless game? What do you think the $50,000 means to the winning players compared to risking their future in this sport? The Pro Bowl, has got to go....

other Ho-Hum Pro Bowl? Give it a rest already! The game is for the players, and most of all, the fans. It is played so the fans can enjoy seeing the most popular players, on the field at the same time. The fans get autographs, and pictures. The players get to bring their families to Hawaii. Yes, it's true that the play is not Super Bowl like, but it's an all-star game. Congadulations to Rudolph. I would have picked J. Jones from the AFC, but I think he already has a Denaldi Truck. High points of the game were The call by the "Herculies Hoculi" on Champ Baily, The Hall of Fame Battery mates Manning, and Saturday, getting together on the field for the last time,. I thought it would be have been kool if Saturday would have switched sides to snap the ball to Payton one last time. I finally get what Manning was saying about the players getting to be around each other. Every time they interviewed one of the young guys, they were "Star struck". Most of these rookies, and second year players, were acting like their Madden football game became real. No its not the best competition, but it was much better than last year. I hope they never get rid of it. Allen was asked why he postponed his surgery to play. He said it was an honor to get invited to play with the guys that are on the field. I'm glad the "Sore sports" that decided not to come because of fake injuries didn't play, because it gave alot of other guys a chance, who were more than happy to be there. GO VIKES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

7 Vikings in the Pro Bowl. What other fact do you need that points out the absurdity of the game?

The only fans this is exciiting for is the ones in the stadium who actually can meet players as purplewv mentioned. itis horrible to watch at home on TV and I did. for about 10 minutes found it was just like the NBA, NHL all-star games no real action and certainly no defense. They should just get rid of all star games
