Default Pro Bowl Votes Are in! Manning - Miller & Bailey Top Vote getters!

Peyton Manning, who has come back from multiple neck surgeries to lead the Denver Broncos to the AFC West title, received the most Pro Bowl votes from fans on NFL.com, the league announced Thursday.

Manning, who has 31 touchdown passes and has thrown for 4,016 yards this season, topped the fan balloting with 993,045 votes cast on NFL.com.

Fan balloting was closed Dec. 17.

The fan voting is one-third of the equation in determining the Pro Bowl teams and is combined with voting by the league's players and coaches, who will cast their votes Thursday and Friday.

The Pro Bowl teams will be announced Dec. 26.

Manning was followed in the fans' voting by Houston Texans running back Arian Foster (829,591); Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson (828,225); and Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers (777,827).

Rounding out the top 10 were Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III (683,943); Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green (676,607); Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski (646,273); New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees (578,753); and Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice (564,751).

Texans defensive end J.J. Watt, who is tied with the San Francisco 49ers' Aldon Smith for the league lead in sacks with 19, received the most fan votes for a defensive player with 542,688.

The NFL is the only one of the four major American professional sports leagues to determine its All-Star teams by combining fans', players' and coaches' votes.

The Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu on Jan. 27, 2013.

Manning, Von and Champ were leaders. I hope that Demaryius and Harris also got some hot love.

Manning will not be playing the Pro Bowl. He will be playing a MUCH bigger game, in New Orleans...

The Pro Bowl is a joke. They should get rid of the game and make it an award like the All Pro voting.

The Ravens have 6 players, it would have been 8 if Ray Lewis and Terrell Suggs were healthy. Lame.

As I understand, fan votes aren't weighted as heavily as the coaches and player's votes. I remember one year the Redskins tried really hard to get their fans to "Vote Burgundy" and were leading in fan votes at almost every position. After the rest of the votes came in they had two pro-bowlers and no alternates.

No. The All Pro team is decided by the AP.

It should be a party in Hawaii followed by a two day golf tournament starring the players who would be allowed to fill their carts with beer, cigars and beautiful women in bikinis. Now that, I would watch.

Oher, Kalil, Mankins, Iupati and Pouncey would be a pretty good Oline.

I don't know how the season's gone as a whole, but most of the Ravens boards I read last week were really down on Oher.

Michael Oher? The fans here in baltimore call him ezpass (those toll cards that let you pass on without stopping). They think he sucks. So probowl makes no sense for him, must be fans of the movie

Right. Fans, players, and coaches all have 1/3 voting weight each.

I've argued for several years now that they'd be far better served if they replaced the current pro-bowl format with a big blow out in place of the Hall of Fame game.

Let current pro-bowlers go schmooze with the HoFers in Canton, play a game, have a bunch of skills competitions, all that junk. I think you'll see far better player participation in that format and the fan base will have been football starved since the draft, so far more willing to watch the sloppy pass heavy game that is a pro bowl match up.

Just vote them in and don't play a game. I agree except I think they should do Vegas so these guys could drink, do blow and hookers and entertain through social media. That would be more entertaining than the game.

Hard to decide which Baltimore Raven deserves to make the pro bowl least....

FB Vonta Leach
OT Michael Oher
KR Jacoby Jones
DT Haloti Ngata
SS Bernard Pollard
FS Ed Reed

I think I'll go with Ed Reed... a hall-of-famer who kinda sucks in the twilight of his career. (at least in the games I watched).
