PHOENIX (AP) - The Pro Bowl will return to Honolulu next January and again will be played the week before the Super Bowl.
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Wednesday at the owners meetings that the all-star game he once considered scrapping has been scheduled for Aloha Stadium on Jan. 26. He added that Hawaii will be included "on some sort of rotational basis" in any future Pro Bowl scheduling.
Goodell was encouraged by the level of performance in this year's game, won 62-35 by the NFC.
"They clearly made a very positive effort in the way they played the game this year," Goodell said.
He added that the system for choosing the players won't change, but some consideration has been given to having team captains select their rosters, rather than an AFC vs. NFC format.
"They have really come up with some very creative ideas," Goodell said of players and staff members he has spoken to. "One was the idea that players are selected as they have been in the past, but the teams are decided through a draft. That could be done by a captain.
"To use an example from this past year we talked about was Peyton Manning picks one team and Eli Manning picks the other team."
Team Manning the Elder vs. Team Manning the Younger, anyone?
