2014 Pro Bowl: Game time, TV schedule, online stream, rosters and more for the worst football game of the year

We break down what the Pro Bowl has to offer on Sunday, and also provide a rundown of pertinent game time and online streaming information for the often dull Pro Bowl.

The 2014 NFL season is over for the San Francisco 49ers, but there are still two NFL games left on the docket for the rest of the world. Today we get the Pro Bowl, and next week we get the Super Bowl. I have to imagine there's a good chance numerous 49ers fans choose not to watch either of them.

If you're planning on watching the Pro Bowl later today, kickoff is set for 4:30 p.m. PT on NBC. The game will be streamed online via NBCSports.com. Of course, if I had to choose, I'd rather have the Pro Bowl on television and then have my computer available for random web surfing. Or, you can just skip the Pro Bowl.

The NFL mixed things up this year, creating a single Pro Bowl roster and then having team captains choose sides. Captains were split up under Team Jerry Rice and Team Deion Sanders. The upside to this is the fact that some teammates will have a chance to go up against each other. The most interesting matchup might be wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald potentially facing off against his teammate cornerback Patrick Peterson.

If that doesn't float your boat, I recommend trying to picture this game like the old MTV Rock 'N Jock programming. For those old enough to remember, it featured athletes and celebrities teamed up against each other in basketball and softball games. It might have been the greatest thing MTV ever created.

Thinking about the Pro Bowl left me incredibly bored earlier this week, and that's where the Rock 'N Jock idea came into my head. It resulted in my tweeting at the NFL that they needed to get Dan Cortese involved in this. For those that don't remember him, Cortese is an actor who's claim to fame has to be his dynamic presence in Rock 'N Jock. Well, that and "Tony" from a Seinfeld episode.

The tweet resulted in this:

That pretty much made my week for the sheer awesome randomness of it. My new goal in life is to get Dan Cortese and Bill Bellamy squaring off in some kind of Rock 'N Jock Pro Bowl. It won't happen anytime soon, but there's always a chance!

It will be interesting to see how much longer the Pro Bowl is in place in any sort of game format like this. At some point, I wonder if the NFL just goes for a basic skills competition and ditches the game? I think we could have some fun with 40-yard dashes, throwing competitions, and even some flag football. How about seeing offensive and defensive linemen in some kind of skills competitions? It doesn't even have to be their traditional skills. Let's see offensive and defensive linemen throwing passes and running routes. Isaac Sopoaga could dominate the former, and we know Joe Staley would be a beast in the latter!
