Pro Bowl Activities

bcinsd : 2/5/2023 1:18 pm
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.

one bit. It's a waste of time in my opinion.
Had no clue they still had any activities

Waste of time for everyone.

honestly I' rather see Eli and Payton....

...on headsets during a REAL game.

Flag football? ehhhhhhhh.

No interest in watching  
GiantSteps : 2/5/2023 1:41 pm : link

but I'm glad Peyton and Eli are the "coaches" of whatever the f*** this is
I'd rather watch...

grass grow.

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.
Watched a replay of the dodgeball

on Youtube this morning and it was mildly entertaining. Saquon helped the NFC win. The flag football might be the last time we see him representing the Giants so I’ll probably catch a few minutes if that.
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.
Hell no.

The NFL has reached another new low. They just plain suck.
It's good to have something going on NFL related though.  
Optimus-NY : 2/5/2023 2:25 pm : link
I used to love the NFL Superstars competition back in the day. Hopefully the can do something along those lines. I've got BSPN no now. I enjoy NFL the talk around it, so why not? The actual games stopped being competitive in a real sense many, many moons ago. Remember when there were fights during these games? Haha!

P.S. They should be doing this in Honolulu still.
Bleh, never mind  
PepperJ52 : 2/5/2023 3:07 pm : link
The flag football is completely lame. Even the Manning brothers can’t make this watchable.
I've found it entertaining.  
Kev in Cali : 2/5/2023 3:07 pm : link
It's better than watching a completely meaningless game where players half ass it. They already plays 17+ games....have fun with it and show off skills. I like the change.
Flag football?

I think my lawn may need mowing and I live in N. Jersey.
I had it on for maybe 2 minutes  
Blue21 : 2/5/2023 3:15 pm : link
Embarrassing. No thx
The flag football aspect is starting to grow on me  
Leg of Theismann : 2/5/2023 3:26 pm : link
felt boring at first, but when you compare it to what it used to be, it was always basically a flag football game anyway. At least in this version we get to see camera angle of the quarterback's perspective and see the routes and play concepts develop.
I'm trying to watch this.  
Optimus-NY : 2/5/2023 3:48 pm : link
It's like meh.
Saquon going through the tire run was fun to watch.  
Optimus-NY : 2/5/2023 4:07 pm : link
He really stands out in comparison to the others. I know this is all a big joke, but you can't help but notice it. It's fun. Beats the meaningless game. Wanna see Eli trash talk Payton.
Wirfs is the but AT isn’t  
Punklicker : 2/5/2023 4:08 pm : link
That’s messed up, PFF has Wirfs at like #20 among tackles.
Jared Goff sucks

At Flag football
Everything Gruden

Said about Roger Goodell is true and accurate.
I apologize but I like it  
Giantimistic : 2/5/2023 4:58 pm : link
The players are having fun, actually being competing with each other. I love playing flag football and don’t mind watching it. It is not tackle football or even close but I enjoy it.

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.
What clown

Battle of the Network Stars.
I always thought Kirk Cousins  
Blue Dream : 2/5/2023 6:16 pm : link
Would be very good at Flag football
I have looked at it a few times  
Beezer : 2/5/2023 6:30 pm : link
just for the spectacle of it. Now taking a knee. Unreal.

Love me some Eli. That's about all I can say about this farcical activity.
Is Peyton really pissed?  
Beezer : 2/5/2023 6:31 pm : link

Well Eli beat Peyton at something  
Blue Dream : 2/5/2023 6:32 pm : link
Peyton looked pissed LOL!
If we lose Kafka  
Giantimistic : 2/5/2023 6:43 pm : link
We have Eli!
My 11 year old son is loving it....  
Jacobs #27 : 2/5/2023 7:01 pm : link
can't get enough of the flag football and especially the skills challenges.

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.
I watched all of it  
islander1 : 2/5/2023 9:11 pm : link
and thought it was pretty great. Some of the events were dopey for sure...but the flag games were way better than I expected.

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.
Best Catch was really cool  
NNJ Tom : 2/6/2023 11:28 am : link
That could take off if more guys took it seriously like St Brown did.
Was Peyton pissed for real or an act?  
MeanBunny : 2/6/2023 12:30 pm : link
That was hilarious. Eli was so chill and Peyt yelling in the walkie talkie.
Tom [Giants fan] : 2/7/2023 10:01 am : link
better than them playing the farce of a game they have been.
