The NFL has an incredibly stupid plan for the league’s virtual Pro Bowl.

The traditional plan for the yearly event was canceled because of coronavirus, and the league is now playing a Sunday game of “Madden 21” instead, according to ESPN. (RELATED: David Hookstead Is The True King In The North When It Comes To College Football)

Deshaun Watson, Kyler Murray, Derrick Henry and some other celebrities will all be involved in the match.

In a year when things are going well and we don’t have to worry about coronavirus, I hate the Pro Bowl. I think it’s insanely stupid.

Nobody tries at all, which makes sense because it’s absolutely pointless.

You know what I hate even more than the Pro Bowl as it’s usually played? Replacing it with a game of “Madden.”

That’s just a straight up joke. This is the NFL. It’s not esports. Leave that nonsense to the gamers. Don’t bring it in here for fans who enjoy watching actual football be played.

I want to watch Kyler Murray actually throw passes. I don’t want to watch him play a video game.

I’m a hard pass on this Sunday event, and I hope lots of NFL fans agree with me because this is incredibly stupid and unnecessary.
