The Pro Bowl needs to go away

Congrats to Saints Jahri Evans and Thomas Morstead for making the Pro Bowl team. Well-deserved for both.

Hopefully – maybe as soon as next year – no Saint is chosen for the Pro Bowl. Why? Simple: the game needs to go away. It is bad football. Touch football disguised as tackle football.

The Super Bowl should be the final game of the season. Can you imagine baseball playing the All Star game after the World Series? Or the NBA playing the All Star game after the finals? Of course not!

By its very nature, football’s contact makes playing a game mid-season impossible. So get rid of it.
