Still no interest in the actual game, but Irvin's draft on paper wins this one hands down.

You think? (Wouldn't have to do with the number of Cowboys? )

I rekon it's pretty close. I'd probably prefer Carters picks.

I consider myself impartial.

Add Joe Thomas and Marshall Yanda to the Cowboys trio and that's a great line.

I like Irv's D line, but Carters is pretty impressive.

Irv's LB's are better imo. As are his S's. CB's? Maybe Carter's, but it's close.

Suppose Luck, Charles, Brown and Green have the edge on Romo, Murray, OBJr and Cobb.

Irv's O line vs Carter's D line would be great to see in a real game.

I prefer Carters Dline with Watt and Williams. I agree with Irvin having better linebackers and corners, not sure on the Safetys think thats close.

Prefer Carters "skill" positions on offence and Irvins Oline. So as you say its pretty close.

Pro Bowl should just be skills tests, like the 40 yard dash and such. Lots of events, players invited to appear in specific events.

Whatever it is, if done properly, carries the risk of injury. I just say get rid. Get your All Pro recognition if you are deemed worthy, and use that as the yard stick for greatness.

It fills the gap between the Championship games and the SB, I don't know why people get their back up about it. It's a bit of fun, and its certainly better than hearing about deflategate 24 hours a day.

Because an all star game should be an advertisement for the sport....the Pro Bowl is the opposite.

First time watching the Pro Bowl, gave it a go without having a clue what usually goes on & it was a huge disappointment. Apart from a few nice throws and catches theres nothing there of any real excitement. It's made me appreciate the normal games a hell of a lot more.
