Aaron Rodgers finishes first in Pro Bowl voting

Posted by Duke Bobber on December 21, 2011 – 3:14 pm

Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers received 1,581,982 fan votes to lead all NFL All-Stars in balloting for the 2012 Pro Bowl, NFL.com announced today. Fan voting ended on Monday, December 19. A record 100.64 million votes were cast by fans this year.

The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 21-22.

The teams will be announced at 6:00 pm (CT) Tuesday, December 27 on a special NFL Total Access 2012 Pro Bowl Selection Show on NFL Network.

New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady (1,454,311 votes) leads all AFC players and finished second overall, while New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (1,188,893 votes), Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson (1,180,777 votes) and New England Patriots wide receiver Wes Welker (1,133,787 votes) rounded out the top five.

The 2012 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 29, 2012 and televised live on NBC at 6:00 pm (CT) from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.  Fans may purchase tickets at NFL.com/probowl.

The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.

    None of the Packers will play in the Pro bowl – they will play in the Super Bowl one week after the Pro Bowl.

    They need to move the Pro Bowl AFTER the the Super Bowl.

    It’s nice that rodgers and 8 other packers lead their positions as of right now, but if the pack make it to the super bowl, would they even play in the pro bowl or just sit on the sidelines. pro bowl should be after the super bowl like it used to be.

  8. By Cali on Dec 21, 2011 | Reply

    You’re right on the money Emma. Hard to play in the pro bowl when you’re preparin’ to defend your title. 14th title, here we come! And did I mention Rodgers will be MVP this year? So that will make him Superbowl XLV winnner and MVP, The Galloping Gobbler winner, the league MVP and Super XLVI winner and MVP! Not bad for a guy in his third year starting. GO RODGERS GO!!

    They need to get rid of the pro bowl period. No one watches ’cause no one cares. Out of all of you on here, who was the winner of last years pro bowl? And the one before, and the one before…..you get the picture. Besides, it’s really for the fans whose teams didn’t make to the superbowl. Not only that, your favorite player(s) only plays two quarters. Whoopie doo!!

  10. By Cali on Dec 21, 2011 | Reply

    You know what? They where talkin’ about expanding the season to 18 games. Give ‘em the 18 games, but get rid of the pro bowl. More pepole will watch the extra game rather than the pro bore.

    Oh I almost forgot, along with that list shoulda included 2011 Male Athlete of the Year! Damn that guys good.

    We lived in WI for 27 years but moved back to home state of Missouri last January, just in time to watch the Super Bowl. This 2011 season has been awesome but I struggle to be able to see the games on TV. I cannot get excited about the St. Louis Rams after living in WI, going to Packer games both in Milwaukee and Green Bay.
    As far as the Pro Bowl, great to see 8 Packers make it but NOT before the Super Bowl. A previous comment by Cali is right on. “Pro Bore!”. I say forget it or play it after the Super Bowl

    I dont understand why chad clifton is on the pro bowl when he missed most of the season. Im glad so many packers or nominated but that is going to far.

    @Cali – I love the Pro Bowl, who are you kidding? Here is the list of past 5 winners – NFC (2010); AFC (2009)

    Does winner of Pro Bowl decide who is hometeam for Super Bowl?? Pack was hometeam last year & NFC won. ANybody know?

  18. By WV_Pack_Fan on Dec 22, 2011 | Reply

    All of this is well and fine, but individual accolades are not what the Green Bay Packers are about. The only focus of this team is to win games and ultimately win championships. Go Pack bring Vince back home again.

    No surprise here!! The best in the nfl and……….Now with a recent vote just out,,,,,,,AMERICANS TEAM!!!!!

  20. By TechMobile on Dec 22, 2011 | Reply

    Home team for Super Bowl alternates every year all the way back to the 1960’s. This year the AFC team will be the ‘Home Team’. Home team gets to choose which jerseys they wear. (kinda like Dallas and some other teams choose to wear their white jerseys for their home games)

    I think it was a few years back when the AFC was the ‘Home Team’ and Pittsburgh elected to wear their road jerseys because they were the Wild Card team that year and had won all of their playoff games on the road.

    Conversely, the Packers were the Wild Card team last season in the NFC but as expected, they still elected to wear their home jerseys as they whooped the Steelers! Ha!!

    Go Pack Go!!!

    Looking forward to the Pack wrapping up home field against the Bears; be a great Christmas present, and I can’t think of a better way to end Christmas Day. My guess is the Pack will let it all hang out Sunday and get back on track. I believe Rodgers & Co. will return to the type of play we’ve seen throughout the season and pile up a ton of points. I love our chances of repeating, but it will start with a statement win on Sunday.

    As for the Pro Bowl… Yawn…..Might as well be flag football. Merry Christmas Packer Nation.

    Just read an article on MSN about who America’s team really is. And it’s NOT the cowboys. It’s the PACKERS!! Of course, we’ve known that all along, but I guess the nation is finally catchin’ up!! And Luke, you may like the Pro Bore, but I along with almost everyone else think it’s a bore and a waste of time. I’m glad you where able to get on wikipedia and find out who played in the last couple years. NFC, AFC, WHO CARES!! It’s all about the PACK!!

    What they have done with the PRO BOWL is stupid. If the very best players on the very best team won’t be playing, then they should not even have an actual game. Just make it an honorary team. This has to be the lamest decision the NFL ever made, having the Pro Bowl before the Super Bowl. Bonehead stupid.

    Was looking at my other favorite teams website last night (Manchester City) and there was a shot of Aaron with his name on a blue jersey. I was afraid he had been traded. :) From the Blue to the Green and Gold, beat the bears, it’s all I want for X-max. And to all the Packers, thanks for your hard work this season.

    The list of NFC only shows the top voted players by position, it means that could be more packers players which are not the top voted. So probably Mathews and Nelson could be on that list.

    Hey Cali/Big Cheese….thanks for the Kudos on the post mortem Chiefs loss blog. Merry Christmas to all you Packer maniacs!!! Just talking about the Pro Bowl has me yawning, and we all know why they moved the game pre-Super Bowl….cause no one really cares as Cali has nailed it. Cali I am with you on the 18 games…instead of playing a weak version of flag football (the pro bowl), let’s add two games that really matter to every fan even if you are the Colts. No ill intent to Colts fans, just saying that to the avid fan even in a losing season there is hope and promise till next year when all teams start 0-0 and we all stake claim to the coveted Lombardi.

    Cali/Big Cheese you both have been good and Santa will award your behavior by giving you a lopsided victory against our nemesis—Da Bears. In the Bears stockings there will be four sacks and three turnovers for 14 points. Rodgers will dance around defenders and throw to multiple receivers as he has all year as Capers directs a defense he has been holding back in his red Santa bag…..waiting for playoff time to unleash the beasts on unsuspecting opponents. The Pack wins big on Christmas…49-10 as Rodgers nears the 5000 yard club. The driveling pundits that drone on over Tebow as the miracle of 2011 will all stop to ponder the brilliance of Capers sandbagging strategy of vanilla defense. Even Skip Bayless finds humility and bows to the Pack. Merry Christmas and happy New Year to all…and to all a green and gold Super Bowl win.

    Roll on green—Roll on

    Dear Bob B., I looked into the tickets you requested for the game Christmas night, I was unable to find any available seats, however if you continue your good behavior until Christmas of 2099, I may be able to grant your wish. Merry Christmas, and enjoy the game from the comfort of your own home, that’s what I will be doing. Go Pack Go. North Pole’s Favorite Team!

    Montana and Cali, I agree, I believe the Pack will destroy the Bears and secure home field advantage. It will be a very nice way to end Christmas Day. Great that home boy James Starks will be back in action. It was around this time last year that Starks began to get noticed, and I believe he’ll perform well. Go Pack Go

    In the midst of several other pretty good ideas at some point Wednesday, someone proposed that ARod was in his third year as a starter. Well. If one ‘where’ to navigate to Wikipedia, and look up the actual season Aaron Rodgers debuted as starter, in the Monday evening earlier contest successfully hosting Tavaris Jackson and the Scotch & Soda Biqueens (wherein the new starter accomplished his first rushing touchdown and Lambeau Leap), one will find a need to recalc. Hey, I’m just sayin! :)

    the pro bowl has lost relevance. it should be held the week after the big dance, so your team can spare a player who might be needed in the super bowl. even in highschool, you fight AFTER the big dance!

I am from the North Pole in Alaska, and I was a real good boy this year, (yeah right) and Santa, who I happen to know he lives two miles from my house granted me tickets to the game and airfare to GB. Now if he could just complete my list and give us a win today against the chipmunks all will be right in packer land. Go Pack Go.
