Seahawks save the Pro Bowl
If the future of the Pro Bowl is doomed, don't blame Russell Wilson and the other five Seahawks who represented the NFC on Sunday in Hawaii.

    I agree Dave!
    I know a lot of people still say and like to think Pete's "always compete" and rah-rah attitude is just for show. But when it shows up in the players attitude in a game that would be hard to get motivated for you can tell this team really embraces it and buys in to Pete's mantra. Go Hawks!!!

    Regardless of what Goodell says....
    ... since his credibility with the NFLPA is, well, you name it, this should be more than just an exhibition and cheap vacation. Our own guys seem to understand that, that you're almost playing for blood but you love the game 1st and foremost. Denying the fans the right to see the best play the best is what this comes down to, so you ask yourself: what's the game for, the fans or the players?. I gotta wonder, I really do.

    Like it or not, can you blame the players...
    Suppose one of these guys gets hurt. Not just a bruise, but an injury that keeps them from playing for say a year or one that is career ending.

    Is the league going to pay out their contract as well as potential future earnings? I doubt it!

    Last year was a sham. Sham, Sham, Sham. No inkling of a doubt even comes to the surface of the mind.

    But with the contracts these guys sign, and the potential for a devastating injury, can you blame them?

    I don't like it nor condone it. I personally want to watch real, full contact football, even in regards to the Pro Bowl. You know, the way we play it on the field even among friends. But I certainly understand the "prima donna" mindset of today's athletes, like it or not...

    MVP
    I suspect Wilson wasn't concerned, but I do wonder why 5 catches with 1 TD makes a TE the MVP over an 80% completion 3 TD not Int's game from a QB.

    So fix it
    The selectees come and sign autographs & play volleyball. The top rookies & free agents suit up and play football.
