Oh, sure. Everyone just LOVES to bash the Pro Bowl. You can't reach full adulthood unless you can say at least 10 snarky things about the NFL's annual "All-Star Game."
Truth is, the game invites such criticisms. The play is uninspired and done at half-speed. Nobody bothers to even jump to block field goals or extra points. Players seem to just want to enjoy a nice week in Hawaii and escape injury in a game that is meaningless.
However, one thing is pretty entertaining. Since the league scrapped the AFC vs. NFC format in 2014 and went with dividing up teams playground style, we have had the delight of seeing teammates face off against each other. And Sunday's 49-27 Team Irvin victory over Team Rice* was no different.
