NFL Pro-Bowl and Results

The NFL Pro-Bowl is a massive collection of events participated by the best athletes of each conference in the NFL. From a quarterback to a kicker, all the players in the NFL can be selected to play in the Pro-Bowl if they are good enough. The Thursday events this year consisted of precision passing, where each conference picks three quarterbacks to hit as many targets as possible in a minute, the best catch event, which will consist of one player from each conference to use their creativity and talent for the best and most entertaining catch possible, the next event was closest to the pin, when six players from each conference drive a golf ball to try and make it closest to the pin. The last three events were some of the best starting with high stakes, where you have to catch as many balls as possible while holding on to each of them after you catch it, dodgeball, which was one conference’s offense versus the conference’s defense, and lastly snap shots, where long snappers and centers from each conference show off their accuracy by trying to snap the ball through holes in a wall for points. 

Then there were the games on Championship Sunday. Those games being, the Madden NFL showdown, where two players from each conference, team up and play the other conference in a football game, the Gridiron Gauntlet, that being a full field relay race between conferences, the Tug of War between five players of each conference, Move the Chains, which is a competition between the offensive and defensive lineman of each conference, where they have to move three thousand pounds of weight off a wall and then try to drag two thousand pounds across the finish line before the other team, and then finally Kick Tac Toe, where the kickers have to kick the ball through areas constructed as a tic tac toe board and try to get three spaces across the board to win the event. The leader in points at the end of the weekend, wins the overall competition. 

This year, as well as last year, the NFC defeated the AFC in a close competition, only winning by five points, 64-59. In my opinion, the closest to the pin game should be an event for the punters and their ability to be accurate, not players trying to hit a golf ball, which has nothing to do with football. Other than that event, all the other competitions are very entertaining, although I do miss the old school NFC/AFC football game. PCM Journalism staff member, Riley Graber, says, “I think it is good, I like all the activities but I liked how the old school football game used to be, although I understand why they do it this way now, not wanting to get anybody hurt, which is fine because the events are pretty fun”.

Man, that’s a lot of players but they are the best players for their conference at their position. People look forward to the Pro-Bowl every year, mostly just to see who will be picked to play in it because then everyone will see who people think are the best players for each position. Just like I am, I am sure people are already excited to see who next year’s Pro-Bowlers are going to be. But until then I am excited to see how next year’s season is going to pan out.
