    They did something like that with the two Super Bowl teams back in the 70's. It was more entertaining than the Pro Bowls.

    I hope they cancel it. It has become a joke.

    I'd like to see them bring back the skills contest too like they used to have. QB's battling in accuracy drills, the fastest man contest, bench press, WR agility and catching contests, etc. Maybe do something with charity where the players win money for each contest and part of it goes to a charity of their choice.

    Prior to that, they did a team competition thing with both teams from the Super Bowl. If I remember correctly, Minnesota beat the Steelers in that competition. Franco was interviewed right after the tug of war. I remember him complaining that his hands hurt.

    I believe that version of the concept only lasted a few years before it morphed into the super skills competition.

    Pull the plug already....plug the rosters into Madden '12 and let the Super Bowl coaches battle it out on the jumbotron...
