In a previous post, we looked at some of the changes that could come to the Pro Bowl in 2014. To recap:
What the league is coming up with for the new changes will be to bring in two fans for the pro bowl festivities. What they are looking at is to basically drop all conference and team affiliation and the fans will vote for the top 6 players at each position. Whether the coaches and players will vote, is still in the air. After the top 86 players are announced, in December, no affiliation remember, the Wednesday before the game will begin a draft.
The front office for the teams will be a combination of a couple of things (1) The two players that received the highest votes overall will be the two on field captains, (2)prominent player alumni, (3) the two fans who scored the most points this season playing NFL.com Fantasy Football.
A Fantasy style draft will begin to pick the teams and this will provide the two teams that will play in the “Pro Bowl”
The poll that we will be looking at will be the two that can be found at NFLFanHuddle.com. Be sure to answer our poll and then head over there and provide your thoughts on it.
