The future of the NFL Pro Bowl rests in the hands of nominated players and their efforts at the 2013 Pro Bowl in Honolulu, HI according to an ESPN report.
NFL vice president of football operations Ray Anderson released a statement claiming the NFL expects a game the fans want to watch.
According to the ESPN report, Commissioner Roger Goodell reinstated the post-season game after a "uninspiring play" last year but is expected to remain on schedule for Sunday after negotiations between the players union and the NFL.
Anderson reports that the league has discussed other options to replace the Pro Bowl including skills competitions, a seven-on-seven scrimmage or events of the like. But according to ESPN, those options haven't met the fans' standards.
