Re: Fletcher appreciation (named to Pro Bowl!)

Fletcher ended up with 5 tackles, second only to UGH T. Newman UGH with 7.

Nice line for McNabb - 3/10 for 78 yds and an INT.

Re: Fletcher appreciation (named to Pro Bowl!)

Not to hijack the thread, but i was curious if anyone here had ideas for how the pro-bowl could be revamped to make it atleast somewhat relevant again.

personally, i cant think of any game that would actually be worth watching. i think the NFL should just name players to the "pro-bowl" and then leave it at that.

The way he played the game yesterday was like it was a defining moment in his career. It was good to see him out there making plays, the guy plays the game like he could go on forever.

How about the winning conference gets both the winning and losing game checks, and the losing conference gets 0.

I bet that would make it interesting at least.

Short of that, what about the winning players starts Free Agency 1 week early.
Or remove the hitting/defense restrictions, and players with PB injuries are guaranteed 1 year salary.

And maybe move it the week before FA starts, so that the players see it as a chance to make a mark. And keep it in Hawaii.

I've heard a pretty good idea on Football Today about having a rookies vs. sophomores game as part of the Pro Bowl "festivities". Also heard an idea of having NFL rookies vs. college football players who are entering the draft (kinda like a Senior Bowl type of game) to see if they college players are ready to play ball at the pro level (I actually like this idea).

Regardless of what happens, the game needs to be moved to after the Super Bowl and back in Hawaii.

Re: Fletcher appreciation (named to Pro Bowl!)

I disagree about changing back to the way it was. First off, the attendance yesterday was higher than any other time in Pro Bowl history because it was on the "mainland". Secondly, it gives us some footbal to watch prior to the Super Bowl. After the Super Bowl nobody really gives a crap about the Pro Bowl. It is an "All Star" game and the guys are just out there to have fun, and that is all that it ever will be. From a financial stand point changing it back just does not make sense. They saved money on the trip to Hawaii, and earned more because there were more fans in attendance.

Re: Fletcher appreciation (named to Pro Bowl!)

I was proud of Fletch yesterday and not just because he was there. He seemed to trying more than other folks. He brought his same no-nonsense, lunch-pail attitude to the Pro Bowl and I appreciated that.

Re: Fletcher appreciation (named to Pro Bowl!)

Keith Brooking is a good player, but his little pre-game speeches seem too forced and simply not very inspiring.

he stutters during his little "pump up" speeches, is quiet, and im pretty sure everyone is laughing at him on the inside. the cowboys probably make him do it for pure entertainment. because i laughed when fox showed one. hes a tool.

Been saying this for years, give them money and awards. Just don't play the game, i'd rather see a skills competition to be honest.

If they changed the rules back I think we would then start to see teams and coaches not allowing a player to play. Just take it for what it is and enjoy.
Yep. It is what it is. There's really not even any pride involved anymore. With free agency you might be playing in the other conference the next year. It's more a reward for the players and more money and exposure for the league anyway.
