They're both pretty useless, and since they're playing high-contact sports, the players wind up playing a very different version of the game, to try to minimize injury risk.

I voted for the Pro Bowl, if only because it comes at the end of the season. A majority of the players in the Pro Bowl haven't played for a month (since they were on non-playoff teams), a not-insignificant number of the players named to it choose to not go, and since they moved the game to the week before the Super Bowl, the Pro Bowl lacks players from two of the league's best teams.

I haven't bothered to watch the Pro Bowl in a decade or more, and I don't feel like I'm missing anything by doing so.
