2011 Pro Bowl Game Time and Roster

The 2011 Pro Bowl kicks off today in Hawaii at 7 PM ET on FOX.  Unfortunately, I don’t get really excited for the Pro Bowl games.  If they would put them back to being after the Super Bowl, perhaps I’d care more.  When your team is in the Super Bowl and therefore none of your players will be appearing in the Pro Bowl, it’s hard to care.

The Pro Bowl is better suited to go down post Super Bowl. It’s the perfect way to close the season out and give us football fanatics one last hurrah before we have to say goodbye and begin the LONG offseason.
