Aaron Rodgers of Green Bay Packers says NFC Pro Bowlers 'embarrassed themselves' - ESPN. He didn't name names, but he realized that the boos started early in the game. Since QB coach Tom Clements was calling the plays, I'm sure he knew when an NFC player didn't know the play. He called out "some of the guys on the NFC side" but both sides were taking it easy.

The one play that really stood out was in the first quarter. On a handoff to LeSean McCoy, he got the ball and all the offensive and defensive lineman just stood up and shuffled their feet. It was like a walk through drill in practice, and not a live play in pads. The boo birds were out afterwards.

On his second touchdown pass, Darrelle Revis was in coverage against Larry Fitzgerald. Revis overran the play and he didn't seem too interested in taking Fitzgerald on. But everything was much different in the second half, especially when Cam Newton was in the game. Revis in particular was in the face of every receiver, and he ended the day with two pass defenses.

I'm sure most people don't care, but it's interesting how Rodgers takes pride in what he does even when the results don't much matter.

I'm sure Rodgers was taking note how awful that oline was playing.

The NFL Pro Bowl is an embarrassment in itself.

They ought to just make it a flag football game and be done with it.

...or just do away with it entirely...but, the NFL does like it's revenue...no matter how bogus the product.

...selling preseaon games (practice games) at regular season prices as proof.

I said in the ProBowl thread, I'd rather watch them play a poker tourny...or Madden.

He probably saw how the d-line was getting on Cam and didn't step up or the NFC's defense.

Yeah, the NFL has embarrassed itself with the Pro Bowl. It's an absolute joke.

Instead of $50K to the winners and $25K to the losers, the pro bowl should be $100K to the winners, and the losers get nothing. Plus the NFL should start some sort of punishment to the guys that dodge it without injury. Or just make it a celebrity flag football game like the old rock and jock football games.
