2010 Pro Bowl Selections: Meaningless Rosters For A Meaningless Game

Another NFL season is drawing to a close, and that means it is almost time to celebrate the league's finest display of on-field talent: the Pro Bowl. Maybe "celebrate" isn't the right word, but hey, you might occasionally glance toward the television when the game's on, assuming you don't have anything better to do. Maybe.

The 2010 Pro Bowl will mark the first time the game has been played somewhere other than Honolulu since 1980. In an effort to create more interest and excitement, the NFL decided to move the game to the same city as the Super Bowl (in 2010, it's nebulous South Florida, at Dolphin Stadium). It's also now being played the week before the Super Bowl (it was traditionally the week following the Big Game), Jan. 31, at 7:30 p.m. ET. Can you feel the excitement yet?

Rosters for both the AFC and NFC will be announced Tuesday night at 7 p.m. on the NFL Network. In the meantime, you can look over's Vic Carucci's ballot and the top-ten vote-getters (Peyton Manning led the way with over 1.54 million).
