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 top theme for this year's Pro Bowl as NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has made it clear the all-star game won't be played going forward if it's second-rate football.
Denver quarterback Peyton Manning says players have to play better because it would be a shame for the game to be canceled.
Manning says the NFL will lose the value of players interacting if the Pro Bowl goes away.
BEST OF MAXIM

Peyton Manning and Arian Foster two of the NFL’s elite think Roger Goodell is off his rocker thinking he can get a better product in the Pro Bowl. The Pro Bowl is a pick up game, teams send the best of the best to play together in one game to highlight the best players in the NFL. If Goodell wants a better product then why not move the game until after the Super Bowl? This way...
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.
Does anyone really watch this game? Oh well, the Unis are pretty sweet this year.

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.

Good, you’re all still here waiting for me. Sign of a good work ethic. You’re committed to me and...
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...

Once the Baltimore Ravens knocked off the Denver Broncos and the possibility of a Peyton Manning versus Tom Brady AFC Championship was eliminated, the next best option for the Super Bowl immediately became a Baltimore-San Francisco match-up. In the AFC Championships second half Joe Flacco looked very Tom Brady-esque. Anquan Boldin shed years off his [...]
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...
