Pro Bowl 5 P’s: Preview, Point Spread, Pick, Prediction, and Poll

It’s that time of year again ladies and gentlemen.

Of course the Super Bowl is next week, so this is Pro Bowl week!

The NFL’s annual all-star game is being played on Sunday in Hawaii, and it features all the stars of today’s game, minus those who are in the Super Bowl and preparing for their game next week.

The game is in its third year of being played the week prior to the Super Bowl, and I personally think it is a great idea. Even though it excludes the players in the Super Bowl, not many NFL players want to play football in the second week of February. It is better to play the game in January, when guys have not yet begun their offseasons.

The AFC will be coached by Gary Kubiak of the Texans, while the NFC is coached by Mike McCarthy of the Packers. Both coaches would much rather be preparing for a game in Indianapolis, but a vacation to Hawaii isn’t a bad consolation. That is also a major draw for players who might otherwise choose not to play. The game is in Hawaii, and the week leading up to the game is treated like a vacation. The practices are very light, and it is a relaxing week of football after a grueling four-plus months.

Instead of trying to preview the actual teams, I have decided to make some predictions on what will happen throughout the course of the game.

Pro Bowl Prediction #1: Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees will be overshadowed by the play of Cam Newton.

Newton made it as a replacement for Eli Manning, and he deserved the recognition. He threw for 4,051 yards with 21 touchdowns and added 14 rushing touchdowns. He should get into the game early in the second half, when the game should still be tightly contested. As a rookie, he will want to play hard and win the game, and could catch the AFC’s defense by surprise.

Pro Bowl Prediction #2: Big kick for Seabass

Sebastian Janikowski will hit a 60+ yard field goal. He has the leg to do it, and why not let him attempt a kick of this distance in the all-star game?

Pro Bowl Prediction #3: Troy Polamalu will have a pick-six.

Polamalu is the best safety in the game, and he always seems to know where the quarterback is looking. One of the NFC’s quarterbacks will get lazy and throw up a weak pass that will be picked off and returned for a touchdown. Even look for James Harrison to lay out the quarterback during the return.

Pro Bowl Prediction #4: One player will spend too much time tweeting on the sideline computers, which will lead to a tweet limit for future Pro Bowls.

The NFL announced they will have computers on the sideline in order for the players to tweet during the game. I’m assuming they will have old Mac’s hooked up in a library-like setting, which creates a peaceful manner in order for the players to tweet when they should be focusing on the game.

Pro Bowl Game and MVP Prediction

The NFC currently has a lead of 21-20 in the Pro Bowls played since 1971, which came after the merger. They have won three of the last four, and they will win once again. The NFC has the more talented team, and the AFC is missing players like Ray Rice, Arian Foster, Tom Brady, and Rob Gronkowski.

The score is usually very high at the Pro Bowl, and that will be the case once again on Sunday. In a tight game, I have the NFC taking it 56-49.

For the MVP, it will go to the rookie Cam Newton. He will lead the NFC to the win during the end of the game, and will end his season in spectacular fashion.


Pro Bowl Poll

Total Voters: 233
