Now that it is Pro Bowl week, it got me thinking about the 2010 Pro Bowl that is to be played in Miami between the Conference Championships and the Super Bowl. What was already mentioned is that both Super Bowl teams are pretty much GUARANTEED to not let their players participate. Obviously it is a high likelihood that the teams in the Super Bowl will have many players voted to the Pro Bowl (success usually equal pro bowlers). There will have to be many replacements for these players. What I was just thinking though is........do you think the losers of the Conference Championships games will be in the mood to play the Pro Bowl only a week later? As it is right now, the Pro Bowl game is three weeks removed from their respective championship game losses. Such a short turnaround will only lead to more withdrawals from the event. Without all of these "pro bowlers" the game really won't be showcasing its best players and will just be showcasing players. Sure, as it is right now the Super Bowl loser only has a week turnaround for the game. For most of those guys who have earned their first selection, they will go to the game. The repeat Pro Bowlers usually don't show up after such a devastating loss though. I know that many don't care about the Pro Bowl at all, but I am one of the minority of people who actually like to watch this event. It's kind of fun to have an "NFL meets Arena League" style of game featuring the NFL's best players from different teams.
