I agree with pretty much everything Posnanski says here: I think the Pro Bowl is an unsalavageable idea. I'd prefer to see it replaced by one of the following:
A.) A footrace between the five fastest players in the league, Usain Bolt, a horse, and a jet-powered Segway.
B.) Same as above, except held in a pool. Replace Usain Bolt with Michael Phelps, the horse with a German Shepherd, and the Segway with a torpedo.
C.) A formal debate contest between NFL quarterbacks.
D.) A series of boxing matches between NFL coaches, organized by weight. (Tell me Rex Ryan v. Andy Reid wouldn't lend new life to the heavyweight division.)
E.) A psychiatric evaluation of Jerry Jones, hosted by Dr. Ruth Westheimer.
F.) An Apprentice-style reality show in which a league source generates a fake "scoop," and an elite group of NFL beat reporters attempt to break the news. (My money's on Schefter.)
G.) Jared Allen wrestling a blindfolded bear.
