Pro Bowl Additions/drops.


Recommended Posts

Julio, Moore and Decoud aren't teammates?

If Sunday truly TRULY was his last game I'd love to see him come out for his final curtain call where the NFL's best can give him all the applause and recognition he deserves. I know it's a joke of a game but I just hate seeing Gonzo go out the way we did although he personally had a pretty good game. (At least make the trip and stand on the sidelines in his best Aloha Shirt)

I hope this means he has a sliver of doubt in his mind as to his retirement and is thinking of keeping himself fresh.

Matt Ryan will not play due to a sprained shoulder and Tony Gonzalez has said he will not play and that his last game will be with his teammates.

This quote is telling that Tony is done. If he were coming back he would not have said that, because if he were coming back he would have games with his teammates after this years pro bowl.

I think he's still just a bit unsure. So if his decision hasn't been made, he wants to leave his last game as the NFCCG for the time being.

he is undecided, so in case he retires, he doesn't want his last game to be a pro bowl. he's probably gonna spend weeks/months deciding

Curtain call to 3,000 people that don't know him and a TV audience of 500,000?

You'd be surprised how well the Pro Bowl actually does. Sure it's universally panned as boring and the ratings HAVE slipped, it's still watched by millions.

Bout a million more than the MLB all star game, the supposed pinnacle of All Star games.

Despite plenty of talk that the Pro Bowl has become such a joke of an exhibition that the NFL ought to scrap it, the NFL’s version of an all-star game will return once again this season, on the Sunday before the Super Bowl. And anyone who’s wondering why the Pro Bowl stays around just needs to look at the TV ratings.

Sports Media Watch put out a list of the 50 most-watched sporting events of the year so far, and the list shows what a TV ratings juggernaut the NFL is: The Super Bowl is No. 1 by a huge margin, of course, and the rest of the Top 10 consists of nine NFL playoff games.

But what’s really striking is the rating for the Pro Bowl, which drew 12.5 million viewers on NBC on January 29. Yes, that makes it the lowest-rated NFL broadcast of 2012, but that’s still an enormous TV audience. To put the ratings in perspective, the Pro Bowl drew more viewers than the Major League Baseball All-Star game, which is the highest-rated baseball game of the year so far. The Pro Bowl also got better ratings than any hockey game this year, better ratings than all of the NBA conference finals games except Game 7 between the Celtics and Heat, better ratings than the U.S. Olympic gymnastics trials, better ratings than the final round of the U.S. Open and better ratings than a great Sugar Bowl game between Michigan and Virginia Tech.

In other words, the NFL’s dominance over the TV ratings landscape extends even to a game that was so bad that the league’s MVP, Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, said some of his fellow players embarrassed themselves. And that makes it easy to see why the league and its TV partners would want to keep the game around.

Honestly we'd watch Peyton Manning and RG3 sit around playing HALO and eating corn chips in this country if they put it LIVE on tv.

The power of the NFL....
