Quote:
this year's Pro Bowl week itinerary will include the return of a skills challenge. Competitions will include: "Epic Pro Bowl Dodgeball," "Power Relay Challenge," "Precision Passing" and "Best Hands."


Why do I feel like they're somehow going to squander the endless potential that the dodgeball idea has?

I know people like the skills challenge but honestly the only one that was interesting at all was the qb competition.

And they'll stop doing it the first time a guy tears an ACL.

I actually love the idea, I miss the skills competitions and the stuff that let you see sides of guys you don't see when they're playing football.

I'm nearly 100% positive that the reason they removed it in the first place was exactly that, some guy tore his ACL doing one of the competitions.

And I agree - it'll be back until the year it happens again.

If that proves too "dangerous" I think they could even pull off a softball game, golf, putt putt golf, go cart races with gopro galore, mic everyone up and set them loose on a theme park. People watch that stuff, I bet casual fans would tune in if they did it right.
