    I don't know how you even do that. They can't hardly make the baseball or basketball versions work and those aren't nearly as risky. If you had that kind of money coming next year would you risk an ACL or some other injury for an exhibition? I wouldn't. I think some sort of skills thing would be just as good.

    Yeah, I think I would like to see some kind of skills competition or something where they can actually compete for whatever it is. American Gladiators: NFL?

    The quality of an all-star game depends on the amount of team preparation that's required in the sport. Example: Baseball is really a series of one-on-one matchups more than a true team game, so the "teamwork" level is significantly lower than other professional sports. That's why its all-star game is the best. Football is pretty much the exact opposite with probably the highest teamwork level of any of the "Big Four," so its all-star game will always be the worst.

    Re: Pro Bowl Rosters announced

    Can we stop the Andrew Luck MVP talks now? According to this, he isn't even the 6th best QB in the league.

    I agree about Briggs and Dez Bryant...both should be there. Also, Julius Peppers had far from a dominant year (but still has 10 sacks) but I'm not sure what else is out there on the D-line.

    5 Chiefs. That's on coaching there...there is NO WAY they should have 2 wins.

    Great year, good story. But I don't think you can put him over Rodgers, RG3, or Ryan.

    I wouldn't put too much stock in these rosters as being in any way indicative of who is the best at their respective positions. Fan voting plays a big role in who makes these teams. That's why you see guys get in on name recognition and reputation rather than actual performance.

    True, but the NFL gets it much closer than MLB or the NBA.

    I still stand by what I said about Luck. Great year, good player...but no where close to the MVP.

    I thought the Colts would do better than last year, but nowhere near where they are now

    I agree with you. But keep in mind the core of this team won 10+ games every year with Manning so they weren't complete crap like their 2011 record suggests.

    Also, look at their schedule. They've beat 2 teams with a winning record: Minnesota and Green Bay. They've only played 3 other teams with a winning record: Chicago, 21-41 L. New England, 24-59 L. Houston, 17-29 L.

    I give them credit because making the playoffs in the NFL isn't that easy but its much easier when you play 5 teams with winning records all season (will be 6 after week 17).
