Brett Favre is the leading QB in fan votes for AFC.
Nick Mangold is in 3rd right now in fan votes, should be in there with Mawae IMO.
D'Brickashaw Ferguson is #2 in fan votes right now, surprises me that fans would vote for him but its a pleasant surprise.
Alan Faneca is the leading OG in AFC votes. By a LARGE margin
Kris Jenkins is 4th in fans votes, completely retarded.
Kerry Rhodes is 4th in fan votes.........
Leon Washington is 4th in fan votes..........
Thomas JOnes isn't top5. Darrelle Revis isn't top 5 in votes either.....
Just so you know, a guy name Ryan Clark is ahead of Rhodes in probowl votes...........
GUYS GET VOTING!!!!!

I ways always under the impression that the players and coaches votes are the ones that truly count. After that it seems like seniority.

This is only Revis' second year so how could he have made the probowl in 06?
Anyway I disagree with it anyway.Rhodes had a down year last year and Revis still had some rookie mistakes last year.Rookies rarely make it anyway unless they really stand out.A good year is not the same as a Pro Bowl year.Plus alot of times if a team has a poor record (4-12)the chances of a player on that team going to a Probowl are drastically reduced.He should have definitely made it in 2006.He got screwed that year
Year Team GP GS Tackles Solo Sacks INT PD FF
2005 Jets 16 16 100 80 1.0 1 7 1
2006 Jets 16 16 92 69 5.0 4 13 3
2007 Jets 16 16 68 52 2.0 5 10 2
2008 Jets 10 10 48 38 1.0 1 4 0
Totals 58 58 308 239 9.0 11 34 6
By the way off hand I think the fans get a third of the votes so they definitely count.It really doesnt matter whether we watch the game or not.It is a reward for for the players for effort and success on the field so if you dont give a crap whether players make the Pro Bowl then you arent very good fans in my book.It means alot to the players to make a Pro Bowl

Brett Favre is the AFC's most popular quarterback in balloting for the Pro Bowl.
Favre ranks third among all NFL players with 402,514 votes in fan-based balloting, which continues until Dec. 9. Fan balloting counts for one-third of the process, with players and coaches also helping decide who goes to Honolulu.
Among AFC East players, what I found most interesting about the early returns is the dearth of Buffalo Bills among the top five at the various positions. Bills fans are passionate, especially when their team is winning, and online balloting began Oct. 13.
Here are the position-by-position results and how AFC East players rank within the conference:
1. Brett Favre, Jets (402,514)
Comment: He has almost 94,000 more votes than second-place Jay Cutler.
1. Ronnie Brown, Dolphins (284,794)
4. Marshawn Lynch, Bills (154,637)
Comment: The Wildcat has helped propel Brown to prominence, but he's deserving without gadgets.
3. Tony Richardson, Jets (70,237)
Comment: LeRon McClain of the Ravens is first with about 25,000 more votes.
4. Randy Moss, Patriots (188,138)
Comment: Strictly on reputation. Jets receivers Laveranues Coles and Jerricho Cotchery are having seasons every bit as good.
Comment: That's understandable, given the number of play-makers at this position in the conference.
3. Nick Mangold, Jets (94,063)
Comment: Surprising not to see Pro Bowler Dan Koppen among the top five.
1. Alan Faneca, Jets (165,610)
4. Derrick Dockery, Bills (61,449)
Comment: Perennial Pro Bowler drawing votes from two fan bases. Pro Bowler Logan Mankins conspicuously missing.
1. Jake Long, Dolphins (108,943)
2. D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Jets (95,675)
3. Matt Light, Patriots (80,270)
Comment: Nice representation for the AFC East. Fittingly, the only one missing is Pro Bowler Jason Peters, who unsuccessfully held out for a new contract and has struggled.
Comment: No Richard Seymour?
3. Marcus Stroud, Bills (80,981)
4. Kris Jenkins, Jets (74,343)
Comment: Jenkins deserves a higher ranking, but you can't argue with Albert Haynesworth being first with 206,925 votes.
1. Joey Porter, Dolphins (151,463)
Comment: He's leading the NFL with 13.5 sacks.
4. Tedy Bruschi, Patriots (49,780)
Comment: That rookie Jerod Mayo isn't ahead of Bruschi ought to be a crime.
Comment: Darrelle Revis is being victimized by some big names ahead of him, but the coaches and players will notice.
4. Donte Whitner, Bills (19,686)
5. Yeremiah Bell, Dolphins (16,721)
Comment: Troy Polamalu is untouchable with 178,764 votes.
4. Kerry Rhodes, Jets (33,900)
Comment: Ed Reed is way out in front with 133,666 votes.
Comment: Strange. Stephen Gostkowski leads the AFC in scoring with 91 points. Jay Feely has made several big kicks, but Mike Nugent represents the Jets on the ballot.
4. Brian Moorman, Bills (37,407)
Comment: It's close at a position that generates few votes.
4. Leon Washington, Jets (43,202)
5. Roscoe Parrish, Bills (34,913)
Comment: Darren Sproles has almost twice as many votes as Washington.
2. Larry Izzo, Patriots (43,462)
3. Patrick Cobbs, Dolphins (41,895)
Comment: Balloting is tight. Izzo is only about 3,500 votes behind the Steelers' Anthony Madison.

A look at the AFC East in Pro Bowl balloting
November 25, 2008 5:23 PM
Posted by ESPN.com's Tim Graham
New York Jets quarterback Brett Favre continues to be the AFC's most popular quarterback in balloting for the Pro Bowl.
Favre ranks third among all NFL players with 525,825 votes in fan balloting, which continues until Dec. 9. Fans account for one-third of the process, with players and coaches also helping decide who goes to Honolulu.
Here are the position-by-position tallies of where AFC East players rank within the conference:
1. Brett Favre, Jets (525,825 votes)
Comment: He has about 152,000 more votes than second-place Jay Cutler.
1. Ronnie Brown, Dolphins (346,059)
4. Marshawn Lynch, Bills (181,613)
Comment: Tennessee Titans rookie Chris Johnson is behind Brown by about 36,000 votes.
3. Tony Richardson, Jets (95,559)
Comment: Richardson still third, but he's closing the gap a bit on LeRon McClain, about 22,000 votes ahead.
4. Randy Moss, Patriots (235,279)
Comment: Moss finally had a Pro Bowl-worthy game with three touchdowns against Miami. He trails first-place Brandon Marshall by 50,000 votes.
Comment: No AFC East tight end should be in the top five.
3. Nick Mangold, Jets (126,938)
Comment: Mangold is hopelessly way behind Kevin Mawae and Jeff Saturday.
1. Alan Faneca, Jets (215,134)
5. Logan Mankins (74,936)
Comment: Bills guard Derrick Dockery falls out of the fourth spot, while Mankins deservedly debuts in the top five.
1. Jake Long, Dolphins (137,556)
2. D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Jets (125,602)
3. Matt Light, Patriots (100,824)
Comment: Again, the only AFC East left tackle not in the top five is former Pro Bowler Jason Peters.
Comment: Still no Richard Seymour?
4. Kris Jenkins, Jets (105,282)
5. Marcus Stroud, Bills (93,589)
Comment: Stroud slips from third to fifth, while Jenkins rises from fourth to third. Albert Haynesworth has more then twice as many votes as second-place Casey Hampton with 263,064 votes.
1. Joey Porter, Dolphins (198,283)
Comment: Chatty sackmaster has about 42,000 more voted than second-place James Harrison.
4. Tedy Bruschi, Patriots (60,658)
5. Jerod Mayo, Patriots (52,290)
Comment: Rookie of the Year candidate Mayo debuts on the list and deserves to finish higher than Bruschi. Regardless, Ray Lewis is uncatchable.
Comment: Darrelle Revis is being overlooked because of such big names as Champ Bailey and Cortland Finnegan.
4. Yeremiah Bell, Dolphins (22,977)
5. Donte Whitner, Bills (22,945)
Comment: Bell and Whitner switch positions on the list. Whitner's shoulder injury is keeping him off the field and certainly will affect his votes. Troy Polamalu is in first by a large margin.
4. Kerry Rhodes, Jets (46,198)
Comment: Ed Reed is way out in front with more than three times as many votes as Rhodes.
5. Dan Carpenter, Dolphins (50,793)
Comment: Stephen Gostkowski is tied for the NFL lead with 103 points and can't get any Pro Bowl love.
3. Brian Moorman, Bills (44,599)
Comment: Moorman moves up from fourth and is only 22,000 votes behind leader Shane Lechler.
2. Leon Washington, Jets (63,709)
Comment: Washington jumps up from fourth but still is 25,000 votes from Darren Sproles. Bills specialist Roscoe Parrish falls out of fifth.
2. Patrick Cobbs, Dolphins (55,894)
3. Larry Izzo, Patriots (43,462)
Comment: Cobbs and Izzo flip-flop spots. Cobbs is only about 4,000 votes behind Anthony Madison.

The ONLY reason Brick is leading is because his name is catchy and since Ogden retired they just look at a team with a good OL and say hey!.. D-bricka-shaw. He gets my vote!
How is Darren f*ckin Sproles leading in votes?, how?.. where?... when? and why? I mean how is that even possible. Fans suck!.. Leon leads the entire league with all purpose yards. Darren Sproles couldn't hold Leons jock strap!
Kris muthafuckin Jenkins at 4? I really can't comment on this without losing it!
Oh man.. I am DONE!!!
Posted 26 November 2008 - 12:20 AM
We should have around 7 players invited to play. Farve, Mangold, Faneca, D'Brick, Jenks, Rhodes, Revis. I can not ever remember the jets having more than 3, maybe 4. The game sucks but the honor shows a lot about the team. Leon could make it 8 for special teams.
