Anyone watch any of this?
I've seen some bits and pieces and found it entertaining. The guys all seem to be competing hard (some of the games are downright silly) but they're having a really good time and letting their personalities show at the same time. Very low injury risk.
I wonder if this could transition to a mid year event like other sports all star games. Give all teams a bye week 9, and not exclude some of the most exciting players because they are going to play in the superbowl. Would get to see players like Mahomes, Hurts, the Kelce's, AJ Brown, etc.
Some might think the whole thing is a waste of time, but I think its much better than playing a boring exhibition game.
Flag football? ehhhhhhhh.
but I'm glad Peyton and Eli are the "coaches" of whatever the f*** this is
Alas, just another example of the NFL knowing that they can basically sell hot garbage to a decent portion of their consumer base as long as it has the NFL logo on it.
Overall, I like the idea of an alternative to a real game since it became so watered down anyway, but I don’t know they’ve found the right one yet.
P.S. They should be doing this in Honolulu still.
I don’t see it different than watching 7 on 7 no pads in training camp or the Player workouts predraft. You can see some great passes—unless Jared Goff is throwing—catches, and even some defense.
The only thing I don’t live is the shortened flag football field. Don’t understand not having a full length to play on. I also think flag football should allow 3 oline with a type of blocking and pass rushers. I have played flag where you could block for the QB.
I do get why people would hate this, but I am just not one.
Do people really enjoy that? Its like Hypnosis.
Love me some Eli. That's about all I can say about this farcical activity.
And my 8 year old who has zero interest in football is having a blast watching the skills challenges.
So maybe they are onto something to help get the younger generations interested in the game.
Better than the 'tackle' previous pro-bowl. Also, Peyton was so, so pissed when they lost.
Peyton was pissed he lost at dodgeball Thursday night. He'd never make it five years as a football head coach, he'd stroke out.
