Tell me again as a college player, why I'd want to do this after doing the combine, senior bowl and/or the shriner bowl? Enough players opt out of the bowls as it is...and even events of the combine.
I guess negativity is just the way of the zone. The conversation is about ways to IMPROVE the pro bowl, as in how to make more fans tune in. I understand this is scenario we will never see but for the sake of an entertaining conversation if there were to happen would you guys be more likely to tune into the Pro Bowl? Truth be told even with the Senior Bowl the game is just a formality, most of the scouts are there to see how these guys practice and to get a gage on their character and how they conduct themselves around their peers.
I honestly would be afraid for the Pro Bowl if college kids are playing. They would get slaughtered.
Yeah, because no rookies had success in REAL games this year. -_- I don't think skill would be an issue, plenty of rookies step in and play at a high level from day 1 in real live games. The Pro Bowl is almost staged these days, I see no reason why a rookie could not come in a make a few plays. All the things that hamper them in the real season (learning the playbook, reading defense/offense, speed of the gam etc.) are thrown out the window. Playing in the Pro Bowl would be like playing in a severly watered down college game.
