If you’re unversed on decades-old Pro Bowls, you’d be forgiven for thinking Fall Out Boy’s 2014 performance was the most offensive halftime show in the history of the NFL’s all-star game. But no! The 1967 Pro Bowl “The Taming Of The West” halftime show featured a tribute to Indian massacres, as noted by Bryan Curtis.…
Dolphins cornerback Brent Grimes just went to the Pro Bowl for the second straight season and made its biggest highlight (if such a thing exists) with this pretty interception. What should've been a good weekend for Brent and his wife Miko was not, as Miko explained in a long Twitter rant this evening.
Safe to say Chris Berman was not a fan of the Pro Bowl halftime show performed by Nico & Vinz. Here's his pissed-off reaction after ESPN's lackluster broadcast.
It will be hard—achingly hard, if not nigh-impossible—for you, a committed sports fan, to divert your attention away from the luminous spectacle of competitive purity that is the 2015 NFL Pro Bowl, presented by McDonald's.
When the NFL totaled up the votes and named six QBs to the Pro Bowl, it also drew up a list of alternates for when players inevitably bailed due to injury or just having better things to do. That list of alternates goes down a long way. Andy Dalton, basically the King Ralph of quarterbacks, is a Pro Bowler.
Try to care about the Pro Bowl for a second. Or, rather: try to care about some NFL execs' lives being made more stressful because of the Pro Bowl. (See? Much easier when you think of it that way.)
The NFL has announced the 2015 Pro Bowl rosters, and since you aren't going to watch the game nor do you actually care about the Pro Bowl, here's the actionable information: Odell Beckham Jr. did not make the team. Despite being tied for the fourth most TDs, having the third most yards per game, and pulling off by…
The Pro Bowl fosters two traditions: crushing boredom, and fans running onto the field. Sunday's edition produced both!
The only remotely noteworthy thing to happen during yesterday's Pro Bowl was Derrick Johnson laying a solid hit on Chiefs teammate Jamaal Charles. More than solid—Johnson, named the game's defensive MVP, went helmet-t0-helmet on Charles three weeks after the RB left a playoff game with a concussion.
I mean, what the hell else are you supposed to do at the Pro Bowl?
The Pro Bowl is going on right now. You knew that, right? Anyway, it's a yearly tradition for somebody to run out onto the field during the game in Hawai'i, and sure enough it happened again tonight as a bikini-clad young woman rushed out to celebrate a touchdown. From the sounds of it, she managed to evade security…
Did you watch the Pro Bowl draft last night? Did you know there was a Pro Bowl draft last night? You missed a lot of waiting around.
The Pro Bowl now has a whole bunch of new rules. It's a fantasy draft format instead of conference vs. conference. Kickoffs and kneeldowns are banned. The play clock will be shorter, but will run after incomplete passes. With today's release of the new uniforms, this Pro Bowl absolutely won't look anything like past…
The big news to come out of yesterday's announcement is that the Pro Bowl is switching to a draft format instead of the old conference-vs.-conference setup. But there were a mess of new rules tacked on, and one of them will cost certain players some big money.
The Pro Bowl! The single most pointless sporting exhibition until the WNBA adds that dunk contest they've been considering. Now the NFL is doing that thing where you ignore the vet's advice and spring for yet another surgery, even though you know deep inside that it's time to just put down the poor old dog.
NFL commissioner Roger Goodell made it clear the Pro Bowl wasn't long for this Earth unless selected players started showing competitive effort in the game. With broadcast rights to the televised cash cow at stake, it was important viewers get the impression what they were watching wasn't just a joke of an…
Andre Johnson, Texans; Aaron Brooks, Saints; Joe Montana, 49ers; Hines Ward, Steelers; Brett Favre, Packers.
