For The NFLPA, Its All-Star Game Is About More Than Just Football from Yahoo! Sports

Last year, the two coaches were Tom Flores and Dick Vermeil, who had last faced off in Super Bowl XV, when Flores' Oakland Raiders beat Vermeil's Philadelphia Eagles, 27-10 on Jan. 25, 1981. This year, Vermeil will go up against Herman Edwards, who he coached in that game, and who later coached the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs for a total of eight seasons.

"The NFL Players Association wants this to be more than just a game, they want it to be a NFL educational experience," Vermeil said before the inaugural contest. "This will be these players' first introduction to the National Football League without the pressure of making a team in training camp. By the time they are drafted and go to training camp they will have an understanding of what's expected of them, having worked with NFL coaches and players for a week. There won't be anything like this." Photo Gallery: The Coaching Staff Video: Season Ticket Holder: Signing Bonus
