The Pro Bowl has traditionally been regarded as the poorest of the main sports All-Star games. There’s nothing on the line as in MLB, and the NBA’s All-Star game is at least entertaining since it’s simply glorified streetball.
There have been few reasons to watch the Pro Bowl in recent years. Nobody cares about this poor game the week before the Super Bowl. They may, however, have just discovered a method to make Pro Bowl 2022 entertaining.
Pro Bowl 2022 Will Have Several New Rules
On Sunday, February 6, at 3:00 p.m. ET, the Pro Bowl 2022 presented by Verizon will be held at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.
The Ravens‘ recommendation in 2021 on how to adjust over time inspired the concept of “Spot and Choose.”
It was a novel concept that virtually gave the NFL a “HORSE” feel. Because it was a fun concept, the owners voted it down. We’ll get to see it in action in Pro Bowl 2022.
If the Pro Bowl 2022 goes overtime, the Spot and Choose technique will be used.
It’s quite straightforward to spot and pick. “Ball at the 30-yard line,” you can remark if you win the toss. The opposition side then has the option of taking the ball or defending from that location. Now, the 30 may not be able to sell this. When a club with an excellent defense faces a team with an outstanding offense, though, it will work well.
The excellent offensive team may shout “ball at the 5,” confident in their quarterback’s ability to gain the yards, discouraging the other side from taking possession.
The regulations for onside kicks have been changed. As a result, clubs have a big decision to make this year.
They may either kickoff as usual or keep the ball at their 25-yard line and start on 4th and 15. A missed effort nearly always results in a score for the other side.
