And players on both sides of the Pro Bowl pledged Wednesday to play more determined in a game with a reputation of being taken less seriously than preseason exhibitions or meaningless Week 17 contests.
Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck says as professional football players, he and his colleagues need to take a professional attitude into the game. He says they have an obligation to keep the game going.
Denver cornerback Champ Bailey says players should take the honor of a Pro Bowl seriously because they never know when they will get the opportunity to return.
The future of the game to be held Sunday in Hawaii is uncertain.
