This is everything you need to know about the NFL Pro Bowl festivities and your open thread for the game!

NFL: Pro Bowl Experience Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

We’re giving you guys a head start on open threading for this afternoon’s Pro Bowl.

Did you realize that the Bears have more players selected to the Pro Bowl (8) than the Vikings, Packers, and Lions combined (7)?

Maybe this is why Trubisky was pictured wearing shades all week at practice.

Open Thread responsibility!


With so many Chicago Bears playing in the Pro Bowl, I may actually watch the game for the first time in years.

Not only will Bears’ fans get to see left tackle Charles Leno Jr., center Cody Whitehair, quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, and return specialist Tarik Cohen playing on offense for the NFC, but we’ll get to see cornerback Kyle Fuller, free safety Eddie Jackson, and defensive lineman Akiem Hicks playing for the NFC’s defense. We may even see outside linebacker Khalil Mack on the sideline as he elected to skip the game with a very minor injury.

And as a bonus, the NFC honorary captain is Bears’ Hall Of Famer Brian Urlacher.

Here’s everything you need to know about the festivities!
