Have you ever thought to yourself “How would James Van Der Beek really fair as a tailback?” Right, we didn’t either, yet that’s the kind of magic you can expect when you watch the Pigskin Pro-Am on NBC this Sunday at 7 PM/EST. The second time this debacle has shown up, Pro players from the NFL team up with the greatest… er, we think, in Hollywood, for a flag football game to celebrate to coming of the EA Sport’s latest game, Madden 11.
