New Pro Bowl Rules

Postby paulvs » Thu Aug 01, 2013 10:27 am

Do you realize we could see Brian Orakpo trying to sack RG3 or London Fletcher trying to tackle Alfred Morris? Who do I root for?

Link? Or, at least some context?

They are moving to a BS fantasy draft format, starring Deion Sanders. So anybody can end up on any team.

Also, they've removed conference restrictions on players. So the game will feature 6 QBs, any number of which could come from the AFC or NFC. Etc.

Did they add any incentive for players to actually play to win, or is it still going to look like backyard football?

» Game within the Game -- A two-minute warning will be added to the first and third quarters and the ball will change hands after each quarter. This will increase the opportunities for quarterbacks to direct "two-minute drills," which are especially exciting for fans.

» No Kickoffs -- The coin toss will determine which team is awarded possession first. The ball will be placed on the 25-yard line at the start of each quarter and after scoring plays.

» Rosters -- The rosters will continue to consist of 43 players per squad. The kick return specialist will be replaced by an additional defensive back.

» Cover Two and Press Coverage -- The defense will be permitted to play "cover two" and "press" coverage. In previous years, only "man" coverage was permitted, except for goal line situations.

» Stopping of the Game Clock -- Beginning at the two-minute mark of every quarter, if the offense does not gain at least one yard, the clock will stop as if the play were an incomplete pass. This rule will make the team with the ball attempt to gain yardage toward the end of each quarter.

» Game Timing -- The game clock will start after an incomplete pass on the signal of the referee, except inside the last two minutes of the first half and the last five minutes of the second half.

» Play Clock -- A 35-second/25-second play clock will be adopted instead of the typical 40-second/25-second clock.

» Sacks -- The game clock will not stop on quarterback sacks outside of the final two minutes of the game. Currently, the game clock stops in these situations outside of two- minutes of the second and fourth quarters.

This is totally stupid. No way are players going to try and hit other players from their own team. They might as well make it a flag football game.

Thats what I'm thinking. Also which team are the fans supposed to root for. I just saw a player interviewed that said now even the players won't know who to root for.
