    Gross new Nike uniforms and a list of changes to the game. Didn't see this posted anywhere so here ya go:

    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.

    I hope those guys still get to go to Hawaii. They earned that trip just as much as the other guys.

    I don't mind these new changes, but those Uniforms are gross. I'm curious what the draft will be like.

    The one thing I don't like is the lack of conference separation. Sounds like we may just have two teams not necessarily represented by NFC or AFC

    Pro bowl is, was, and will be a joke as long as it exists. There's no way to make it worth watching. It's meaningless. There's no way to make a meaningless football game enjoyable to watch. Not Preseason, not Pro Bowl.

    I'll tune in, but not because I want to, but because regular season basketball is pretty weak.

    So I'm pretty sure there won't be any more NFC vs AFC. There are just a bunch of players being voted in regardless of conference then a huge draft to determine who is on what team.
