NFL Pro Bowlers look like they’re just going through the motions. They give about 80 percent of normal effort on offense, and even less on defense. No play looks well-executed, no player comes off as a peak athlete.
A game comprised of the reputedly best players in the NFL winds up looking like anything but. People complain about this every year.
But after watching Sunday’s game, I wonder if anything can fix it, or if it’s simply doomed.
