This Given Sunday:
This year's Pro Bowl will be the most influential all-star event in recent history. Virtually every pro series in the United States incorporates an all-star event into their schedule, but the NFL's is unique in that it comes at the end of the season. It's always been an afterthought, but if nothing changes this year, it's possible it'll be gone forever. The first thing to remember about the Pro Bowl is that it's not a normal football game, but it is still a game nonetheless. The Pro Bowl has seen ever declining levels of play over the past decade, and it's that drop in play that has led Roger Goodell to threaten to pull the game for good. That's what makes this season special. Peyton Manning will lead the AFC for what could be the final time, but that's not the way it could end. There's been a push by the players this year to up the level of play in an effort to save their yearly celebration of the NFL's best. Here's what has to ha...

The Super Bowl is headed to New Orleans this year, let the games begin. I personally have no issue with anything against Roger Goodell, I really don’t like the guy. This float is just terrible. It’s so aggressive.
Roger Goodell is heading into the Lions’ den, not Ford Field, New Orleans, Louisiana.Super Bowl week begins on January 28 and the people of the city are prepared to give Goodell a welcome that would rival how the Ravens’ defense plans to welcome 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Super Bowl Sunday.Pictures of Goodell are displayed all over restaurants and bars throughout the...
HONOLULU (AP) -- Houston running back Arian Foster says players are going to step up at the Pro Bowl this year, but don't expect 100 percent effort.
Foster said Friday after practicing with his AFC teammates that it's unrealistic to expect full effort from the NFL's top athletes when they're limited in the plays they're able to run.
Effort has emerged as the...

After last year’s short and very unproductive season with the New York Giants, Brandon Stokley seemed to be headed for retirement. He only played two games and had a single reception for seven yards. Conversely, after reuniting with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos, Stokley experienced a resurrection style season in 2012 putting up his best numbers since 2007, but those numbers...
HONOLULU (AP) -- The NFC team ended its first Pro Bowl practice by breaking the huddle and shouting, "Win." One night earlier, Denver quarterback Peyton Manning asked his fellow all-stars to play the game hard.
And players on both sides pledged Wednesday to play more determined in a game with a reputation of being taken less seriously than preseason exhibitions or meaningless...

So you think you can just get a free trip to Hawaii and not have to do any work? Is that what I’m hearing out of my fellow AFC teammates? Well, I don’t think so, not on my watch.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell has indicated that players will have to give a 100 percent effort at this year’s Pro Bowl game, or else it will be eliminated.
Texans running back Arian Foster says people shouldn’t expect a full effort.
”This isn’t basketball – you can’t go play a pickup game of football,” Foster said.
Foster said if the NFL expects 100 percent effort...
According to Peter Schrager of FOXSports.com, NBC’s Cris Collinsworth told him that he spoke with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who told him if the players don’t give a 100 percent effort in this week’s Pro Bowl, they will get rid of the game.
I’m really looking forward to see how much of an effort the players give. I’m not sure how much of the Pro Bowl I’ll watch...
