(even a nonsense game of football like this one)

QB Drills and skill tests are all well and good, but they're not primetime entertainment, lets be honest.
I wonder how much revenue it actually brings? If it continues the way it has, then surely interest will wain even further. I think most would agree, just get rid of it.

With the Shrine Game/Senior Bowl coverage growing, the whole pre/post SuperBowl fanfare, and then FA and even more draft analysis, surely the NFL could fill their air time with that.
