The NFL, recognzing that it's a terrible game, has been tinkering with the Pro Bowl for a decade or more, which is why it's now the week *before* the Super Bowl, as well as why they've added in the skills competitions. The league has also considered just dropping the stupid thing altogether, but I suspect that the reason it lives on is that the NFL can't pass up one more excuse to sell ad space for a weekend.
