A whopping six members of the Green Bay Packers finished in first place at their position in Pro Bowl fan voting. The starters and full rosters for the 2013 Pro Bowl will be revealed during a selection show on December 26th, broadcast on NFL Network. The Pro Bowl teams are selected by a combination of fan, coach and player voting, with each group making up 1/3 of the vote.
Obviously, winning the fan vote doesn't mean that any of these guys will be starters, but they'll all end up in the running. The Packers who finished first are...
Rodgers was the only one of those players to crack the top ten overall, finishing with the fifth most votes among all players. Peyton Manning collected the most votes, followed by Tom Brady, Arian Foster, Adrian Peterson and Rodgers.
There's no doubt that Rodgers, Kuhn, Matthews and Cobb are very much worthy of consideration by players and coaches to start the Pro Bowl. Woodson and Saturday are here a little more on the back of their longevity and popularity than their play, especially considering that Woodson has been injured most of the year and the Packers' offensive line as a whole has struggled. I'd expect those four to hold onto their starting spots, while Woodson and Saturday might not end up as starters when player and coach votes are taken into account.
