Default Broncos Among Top Pro Bowl Vote Getters

Quote:
With the season just passing the halfway mark, several Broncos are in the hunt for Pro Bowl bids, according to the fan-vote figures that the NFL released this week. Fan voting has been open since Oct. 25th and will end on Dec. 19 at the conclusion of the Monday Night Football matchup between the Steelers and 49ers.

Punter Britton Colquitt, safety Brian Dawkins, linebacker Von Miller and quarterback Tim Tebow (lol) are amongst the top-five vote getters in the AFC for their respective positions.

Tebow has led the Broncos to a 4-1 record since taking over as a starter this season, while Miller leads all rookies with eight sacks on the season. For his success, Miller was recently named Sports Illustrated’s midseason defensive rookie of the year.

Like Tebow and Miller, this would be Colquitt’s first Pro Bowl if elected, and he’s making a strong case for himself. Entering Week 11, the third-year punter out of Tennessee was one of only three NFL players to rank in the top-five in both gross and net punting average through nine games.

If the quartet is selected, Dawkins can show them the ropes. The 16th-year player has been to eight Pro Bowls and is in contention for his ninth, which would tie him with former Broncos safety John Lynch for second all-time in the NFL for Pro Bowl selections as a safety.

The teams will be announced at 5 p.m. MST on a special NFL Total Access 2012 Pro Bowl Selection Show on NFL Network.

The game will be played on Sunday, Jan. 29, 2012.

Dawkins is no longer playing at a Pro Bowl level, IMO...

Thought it was good to see people have recognised the year Colquitt is having.

Well I don't know about pro bowl level but I am sure glad he is a starter for us. Dawkins is having a great year he throws his body on the line for us.

Champ Bailey is still a pro bowl cornerback -- hopefully, the players and coaches will recognize that, even if the fans don't.

Unfortuantely, any of our players that get picked to play in the pro bowl won't even get to play in the game due to their preparation for Super Bowl 46

Yeah because Tebow will come out in the pro bowl and start running all over the place throttling a bunch of hung over NFC defenders who don't want to hit anyone.

Agreed. From day 1 he's been our team's MVP.

Name 5 QBs in the AFC that deserve it more.

Frankly, with Schaub now out he probably should.

This year Brady's the only one who deserves it in the AFC. After that probably the rapist in Pitt. Who then? Rivers in his worst year ever? Andy Dalton who's winning on even more defensive play than Tebow?
