Aaron Rodgers Nears One Million Pro Bowl Votes, Leading Vote Getter

Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is the leading vote getter for the 2012 Pro Bowl among all NFL players with just short of one million votes. His 961,818 votes is ahead of second-place Tom Brady who has 873,424 votes.

Wide receiver Greg Jennings is seventh overall with 602,323 votes.

Overall, 10 Packers lead their respective NFC positions in voting. That's over half the NFC team, which has 19 positions voted upon by fans overall:

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers, 961, 818

Fullback John Kuhn, 189,046

Tackle Chad Clifton 244,037

Guard T.J. Lang 197,247

Center Scott Wells 266,549

Kicker Mason Crosby 123,534

Cornerback Charles Woodson 467,472

Strong Safety Charlie Peprah 88,409

Free safety Morgan Burnett 151,085

Special teams Jarrett Bush 82,522

Fan voting determines one-third of the rosters that make up the Pro Bowl teams along with coaches and player voting that each make up one-third as well. In that regard, the NFL is different than Major League Baseball in which fan voting alone determines starters in the league's all-star game.

Voting continues through Monday Dec. 19 at NFL.com/probowl.

i smell a pro-bowl voter fraud scandal...

but re: Rodgers - doesn't really matter since we all know he won't be playing in the Pro Bowl anyway. He'll be preparing for another Title game.

Are you really surprised Packers fans are voting in masses for anyone that wears the Green and Gold?

Tommyboy's picture

RS - fair enough. Still....LANG?!

PackersRS's picture

Hey, he's an improvement from Colledge. That alone should get you a pro bowl berth, right?

Tommyboy's picture

You're not going to get any argument from me that he's an upgrade from Colledge. But I still defer to my original argument.

...really? Lang???

Good luck countering that, RS. Good. luck.

Here's my rebuttal:

It works on so many levels!

I just loled all over my shirt. Well played, RS. Well played.

Besides Packers fans voting like crazy, also consider that Clifton, Lang, and Wells are, to the lay person, Aaron Rodgers' blind side protection.

Rodgers' season is so off the charts right now, that I'd imagine there's a lot of football fans- not necessarily Packers fans- that are jumping to the conclusion that the middle to left side of the Packers O line must be extraordinary.

hahaha, how about chad clifton who hasn't even played half the year and may be out till near the playoffs lol!

How ridiculous!
Think morgan, peprah, clifton, and lang need to relinquish their spots to P-Masthay, WR-Nelson, LB-Bishop, and CB-Williams.

At the beginning of the year I said, "The Packers have potentially 16 probowlers."

kuhn is a better player than what he gets credit for. he does the small things that teams need to succeed. he should be on it

I have no problem with Rodgers, Jennings, Nelson, Bush, and Crosby. But the rest, its just a joke. I am a huge Packers fan, but I hate it when other teams have players on the Pro Bowl that don't deserve it as well, this is no different. At least its only 1/3 of the vote

Fan votes - will sports ever do away with it? I think Shaq was a starter last season and he was playing like 15 minutes. It's doopid.

It's an exhibition game. It's all about the fans. They should be a part of it.

Last year, the fans smartly voted for Josh Sitton to the Pro Bowl, and it was the coaches and players that kept him out. I'll never forget the time then fans got it right.

That is a great point Brian.

+1

I vote we end the Pro Bowl.

fish/crane's picture

and start to bowl pro

Tommyboy's picture

I'd actually tune in just for skill competitions. The game? Yeah, I'd rather watch "Honey, I Blew Up the Kids."

Oppy's picture

Rodgers, Wells, Crosby are the only guys on this list that should really be the unquestionable leading NFC vote-getters out of this list.

Bush and Burnett can make a case for being in the conversation.

Woodson will stay the leader of NFC CB's because of his all-around play and picks.
