    Its on the big screen here at work so i'm catching what I can between issues.

    I think Kubiak and Schiano should have been the coaches this year. :lol3

    Hey, I liked it. I think it was better than it has been in several years. Sure, there were some major lapses in play, but that is to be expected with the limited amount of prep anyways...

    From what little I watched, it definitely wasn't as bad as previous years.

    I don't know if seeing Primetime as a greybeard makes me feel older or not.:lol3

    Sanders and Jerry Rice basically drafted all stars to their team. Fantasy football came to life. No AFC vs NFC.

    I think the new format worked and worked well. Close scoring and final minute win. Fun game to watch. You even saw guys from the same team taking cracks at each other.

    They should put it in September or October, and make it a "Bench-Warmer Bowl". Take all the guys that are on the verge of being cut from their teams, and fly them out to Hawaii. They would have incentive to play their asses off, both to keep their positions with their respective teams, and to make a good amount of cash. The guys that are going to the Pro Bowl are already making good money, so for them $25K is nothing. But for that guy who is worried about whether he's going to be playing football or stocking shelves at the Piggly-Wiggly next month, $25K is a lot of money. :lol3

    That is a good idea....but many of the guys get bonus incentives in their contracts for making the pro-bowl. Good for the team, because they stay motivated, good for the NFL as their stars are there, good for the players because $25k doesn't buy a fancy car anymore. :D
