Keep it up Saints fans!:

Brees leads Pro Bowl voting, despite best efforts of Vikings fans

The MVP debate will continue throughout the 2009 season, and possibly beyond.

But there can be no debate regarding the hard numbers generated via the Pro Bowl ballots cast by NFL fans.

Saints quarterback Drew Brees currently leads the way, with 539,228 votes. Colts quarterback Peyton Manning is in second place, with 532,455.

Next on the list are two Vikings: running back Adrian Peterson (529,319) and quarterback Brett Favre (476,799).

At No. 5 is Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald (328,451). Sixth is Bengals running back Cedric "Pay the Man!" Benson, with 321,552.

Rounding out the top ten are Pats quarterback Tom Brady (295,477), Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger (291,466), Texans receiver Andre Johnson (279,395), and Colts tight end Dallas Clark (274,400).

The NFC leaders at the various positions reflect a high concentration of Vikings fans stuffing the ballot box. Currently, Peterson, fullback Fahu Tahi, tackle Bryant McKinnie, guard Steve Hutchinson, center John Sullivan (who?), kicker Ryan Longwell, kick returner Percy Harvin, defensive end Jared Allen, defensive tackle Kevin Williams, and special-teamer Heath Farwell are in first place at their respective positions.

Fan voting, player voting, and coach voting are used to determine the Pro Bowl rosters.

Re: Brees leads Pro Bowl Voting!

I think it's a little funny that Brady and Roethlesberger aren't in the top 5.

NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 22-23.

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.

Re: Brees leads Pro Bowl Voting!

The best possible situation for the Saints is that any one of them elected to the Pro Bowl not go because we always come away from that game with injuries.

I've voted 4 times, and will vote probably 10 more times before the 21st. Anything to prevent Farve from getting a bonus
