The game observers, who are not confirmed at this point, but typically include two members of the officiating department as well as an unnamed assistant coach, will monitor the formations and the coverages for unsportsmanlike conduct. In the Pro Bowl, there are only simple formations and coverage packages allowed.
And â€” in the words of the venerable Ed Hochuli â€” yes, there are penalties in the Pro Bowl.
