Aaron Rodgers Is One Of Nine Packers Leading In The Pro Bowl Voting

Aaron Rodgers leads all NFL players in Pro Bowl fan voting - ESPN. This is very cool for Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers, but the Packer fans were out in force for this year's vote.

Overall, there are nine Packers leading at their respective positions for the NFC. While I wouldn't necessarily say they're the best players at their positions (John Kuhn, T.J. Lang, Scott Wells, Mason Crosby, Charles Woodson), they do deserve some votes.

On the other hand, Chad Clifton, Morgan Burnett, and Jarrett Bush should not be the leading vote-getters. Maybe Bush is worthy as a special teams nominee now that he's avoiding all the dumb penalties he committed back in 2007-2009. But Clifton hasn't played most of the season, and he's not even the best tackle on his team (Bryan Bulaga is better). I can't imagine Burnett is the best free safety in the NFC.

In the end, this doesn't really matter. Fan voting only accounts for one-third of the vote, so not all nine players will be invited to play in Hawaii. The vote doesn't agree with reality, but it's always good to see the support.
