    That’s a lot of Packers leading their respective positions. Nice to see a lot of the O-line guys in there, and Kuhn! Great work guys, keep up the amazing level of play!

    WOW!! Josh Sitton (G) should have been in there last year. What is wrong voters !!! Get with it people !!!

    Did anyone say ST means Special Teams yet? Oh wait…

  14. By Ian on Dec 14, 2011 | Reply

    These are TOP vote per position. It doesn’t mean NO CLAY, you think there is only going to be 1 OLB in the All-Star game? Same as the list shows Calvin only but above it that Jennings is in top 10 votes. Just means Demarcus Ware has more votes right now, Clay could be sitting second. Can’t complain until entire roster is revealed! Personally I am AMAZED that there are NINE!! YES NINE PACKERS of a possible 19 possible LEADING votes for their position!!

    I love how Clifton is leading in votes for Tackle. He hasn’t played in the longest time. Shows how much the Packer fans are voting for these guys! Go Pack Go!

    Too bad none of the Packers will(once again) not be playing at the Pro Bowl.

  17. By Rodolpho on Dec 14, 2011 | Reply

    Shame Bishop got hurt, he was doing way better than Willis which leader in the ILB position for NFC.

    Great work guys keep it up. Just 1 stat, the NFL is no longer the only competition to have an All Stars game where voting is done by the player, fans and coaches. The National Rugby League in Australia has an Indigenous All Stars Vs NRL All Stars Game during February.

    First off, the Packers will not be playin’ in the Pro Bowl this year, again, boo hoo. Can’t play when you’re preparin’ for the SUPERBOWL!! And Yaron. No question is dumb, except that one. 13-0 & GO PACK GO!!

  23. By Cali on Dec 15, 2011 | Reply

    Actually, ST means Saggin’ T**s. :-o

    This year, the NFC might as well ditch the blue and hand out green jerseys, or at least add some yellow trim… HA! Awesome job so far this year fellas!

    I just wanna say to any bears fan that might stumble in here, now the Division is ours. Goes well with the Lombardi trophy we already have and the other one we’ll be pickin’ up in February!! 13-0 & GO PACK GO!!

    After a season long very poor performance, defensive coach Dom Capers should be fired. This coach couldn’t stop a high school defense!!

    A very disappointed stockholder.
