The Pro Bowl has declined over the years as far as fans wanting to watch it and the players pledged this year  to improve “competitiveness” of the game  I like it just because I love having an extra week of football…anything for my football!!  Check out who is leading in votes so far…


The process of selecting the Pro Bowl team is a three-part formula, with fan votes accounting for 33 percent, player votes taking up another third, and votes from coaches providing the final third.

The latter two categories come later; for now, the fans are voting at  And the fans’ favorite to date is Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning, with nearly 377,000 votes.  In second place is Peyton’s long-time nemesis, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, with more than 345,000.

The rest of the top 10 consists of Texans running back Arian Foster (333,000), Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (320,000), Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (298,000), Bengals receiver A.J. Green (258,000), Patriots tight endRob Gronkowski (258,000), Giants receiver Victor Cruz (257,000), Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan (236,000), and Saints quarterback Drew Brees(227,000).

Voting continues for five more weeks.  The game will be played in Honolulu on the Sunday before Super Bowl XLVII.
