Four Packers win Pro Bowl fan voting

Posted by Mike Spofford on December 22, 2010 – 12:16 pm

Four Packers players were the top vote-getters in the NFC at their respective positions in the Pro Bowl fan balloting, which concluded Monday. Fans cast nearly 100 million votes in all.

OLB Clay Matthews, CB Charles Woodson, T Chad Clifton and G Josh Sitton all finished first in the voting in the NFC. QB Aaron Rodgers was third among NFC quarterbacks, behind Philadelphia’s Michael Vick and New Orleans’ Drew Brees, and was the No. 7 vote-getter overall.

The only other team to have four players win the voting at their positions was the Baltimore Ravens.

Patriots QB Tom Brady was the top vote-getter in the league with nearly 1.9 million votes, followed by Vick, Colts QB Peyton Manning, Chargers QB Philip Rivers, Brees, Vikings RB Adrian Peterson and Rodgers. Texans RB Arian Foster, Jaguars RB Maurice Jones-Drew and Falcons QB Matt Ryan rounded out the top 10 overall.

Interestingly, the first-place finishers at 10 of the 19 positions in the NFC were from the NFC North. In addition to the four Packers, the following division rivals also led the balloting at their respective positions in the conference: Peterson, Bears KR Devin Hester, Bears DE Julius Peppers, Lions DT Ndamukong Suh, Bears ILB Brian Urlacher, and Vikings special-teamer Heath Farwell.

In addition, Suh was the top vote-getter among all rookies. Lions RB Jahvid Best was also in the top five among rookies.

Fan voting counts one-third toward the selection of the Pro Bowl rosters. Voting by the league’s players and coaches, which constitutes the other two-thirds, is taking place this week. The Pro Bowl rosters are scheduled to be announced at 6 p.m. CT Tuesday, Dec. 28, on the NFL Network.
