The Pro Bowl is stupid. End it now.

It’s not because there were no Broncos playing yesterday. It’s because it’s just stupid.

I heard the AFC won the Pro Bowl.

41-35 and about 176 turnovers...or something like that.

Whatever. Who even cares?

What I do care about is how long is the NFL going to keep pretending this game is worthwhile?

It’s on the most irrelevant pro football weekend of the year - between the conference championships and the Super Bowl.

It’s a total sham. My son’s 4th grade flag football league had more hits in the game - and those were by accident.

Typically some of the most deserving players don’t even go because they’re playing the next weekend in the Super Bowl and don’t want to risk injury in something so meaningless.

And to top it off, it’s supposed to be an honor because players are supposedly chosen for their talent and athletic skill. Yet a portion of the selection is based on fan retweets on social media. GTFO.

Someone - anyone - please save the NFL from itself. This game is embarrassing.

The Manning Bros, perhaps?

Oh Peyton-lover-of-NFL-lore-Manning, please rescue the league by ending this misery.

Instead of scraping together a few million to join an investor group to buy the Broncos, just buy out the rights to the Pro Bowl. You and Eli can keep broadcasting from your basements and take up three hours commenting on current stars playing Madden, or do commentary on great Pro Bowls of the 70s and 80s, or run the highlight reel from Marshall’s flag football team. Hundred percent guaranteed any of those are more interesting than the currrent excuse for an NFL all-star game.
