If you want this to be really competitive the winners get a bonus that the losers have to furnish.

If this was the Olympics with recognition for 3rd place this would makes sense, but it's not. At the end of the year, there's one Super Bowl champ and 31 losers. That's just the way it is.

Exactly.  There is no silver medal in football either just another loser so why have a bronze.

would anyone on a team care about winning third place? at that point you're risking injury for a pointless feat, and from a GM/coaching perspective you're fighting a lose a spot in the draft. i can't see players taking it seriously enough to make it any more intense than the pro bowl as it is.

this. no reason for it. i can't imagine it being any better than the probowl as far as how pointless and lame it would be.

you're looking at it the wrong way, and have no idea how incentives work. pro bowl= no incentives.

The World Cup is like the Olympics, not a professional league.  Barca and Real did not face-off in a UEFA Third Place Game.  In addition, the risk of injury in football is far greater than in futbol.  No sense in risking it for a meaningless competition.

what's the incentive for being third place? a worst draft pick than 4th?

 

i don't see why it matters or how a team would benefit by being third. first is all that matters. the rest just didn't get the job done.

 

it's an empty honor in thus setting.

I'd watch. It would definitely be better than the probowl.

To be fair...there are  LOT of pointless end of the season games! I believe this game would add revenue and more bragging rights! I believe coaches would use this game as a measuring stick just incase their team faced another high octane team in the playoffs. IF we eliminated the probowl and had a 3rd place game I believe this would get more ratings than a probowl game. The game would have to include a bonus for all involved especially the winners of the game.  I have to say from experience from playing in 3rd place game there still is a fire inside of everyone who plays and they do put forth a lot more effort than a meaningless probowl....
