The NFL must hire the WWF to come in and show the Pro Bowlers how to simulate action and violence. It’s the only answer to what was an awful Pro Bowl where it looks like many of the defensive players aren’t even trying at times.
I had to check my television to make sure there wasn’t something wrong with it. I wanted to make sure that somebody hadn’t pushed a pause button because I noticed the players playing in the Pro Bowl weren’t running full or hitting full speed. They were dressed in football equipment but they might as well have been in shorts.
Somebody tell the people in the NFL front office that if they want to sell the Pro Bowl that means the players have to play legitimate football. They don’t have kill each other but they do need to play much harder than they did last night.
I understand players don’t want to get hurt but that wasn’t even on the intensity of a competitive flag football game. You can’t have guys out of the field jogging on the field and sell that as real NFL football.
You can’t have pass rushers deciding not to rush and standing there watching the play as the quarterback waits for somebody to get open and try to sell that are authentic NFL football.
I watched Kansas City Chiefs rookie safety Eric Berry fall on the ground and try to tackle the shoelaces of St. Louis Rams big and physical running back Steven Jackson as he ran into the end zone for the touchdown.
