Default Broncos ProBowl voting.

Yesterday we told you Champ Bailey is the only Bronco leading his position group in Pro Bowl voting for the AFC squad.

Well now we know that six more Broncos are in the top five in their position group.

As you know, Bailey is the No. 1 cornerback. Brian Dawkins is the No. 2 strong safety, behind Pittsburgh’s Troy Polamalu, and Elvis Dumervil is the No. 2 outside linebacker, behind Pittsburgh’s James Harrison.

Eddie Royal is the No. 3 kick returner, behind San Diego’s Darren Sproles and Cleveland’s Joshua Cribbs.

Ryan Clady is the No. 5 tackle, behind Miami’s Jake Long, New England’s Matt Light, Pittsburgh’s Max Starks and Indianapolis’ Ryan Diem.

D.J. Williams is the No. 5 inside linebacker, behind Baltimore’s Ray Lewis, Pittsburgh’s James Farrior, New York’s Bart Scott, and New England’s Jerod Mayo.

Matt Prater is the No. 5 kicker, behind Indianapolis’ Adam Vinatieri, New England’s Stephen Gostkowski, Pittsburgh’s Jeff Reed and San Diego’s Nate Kaeding.


So as we told you yesterday, keep voting. Fan voting doesn’t end until December 21st at the conclusion of that evening’s Monday Night Football game. Still plenty of time to make sure deserving Broncos earn their trip to the Pro Bowl.

Fan voting counts for one third of the vote, with players’ votes and coaches’ votes each counting one third as well. Players and coaches cast their votes on December 22-23.

What a joke.

Eddie is the number three because of one game, yet Clady is still number five. The Pro Bowl is nothing more than a popularity contest.

Clady is better than Matt Light, but Brady takes less sacks from making good decisions... I think the O-lineman vote is tainted by winning record and league longevity. I get tired of seeing some guys on the oline in the pro bowl and I watch them play and they are horrible. I guess it works both ways thought right? I mean Emmitt smith is the all time leading rusher thanks to holes the size of buicks to run through for most of his career...

I wouldn't want any Broncos risking injury playing in this game.

Its all name recognition with fan voting, which explains why Bailey is so high and Clady so low. Fan voting for the Pro Bowl is about as crappy as the game itself.

Im sorry but Bailey is not the best corner anymore

And Clady is way better than 5th best tackle in the conference

I dont know what Clady has to do to get recognition, not give up sacks....oh wait he already does that

I'll vote for Clady, Dawkins, Marshall, Champ, and Dummervil. Outside of that I can't vote for anyone else in good faith.

The question is not whether Bailey is the best corner anymore, but whether he's one of the three top cornerbacks in the AFC.

You can vote Marquand Manuel NFC strong safety if you like.

I know I did ... it was a cathartic moment

I'd sure like to try a season with Mankins on Clady's inside shoulder.

The only problem I have with the voting to this point is Clady. He deserves more props than he's getting. Dawkins would be the #1 safety if he was still in the NFC. Polamalu tranforms the Steelers from good to great....

With the Pro Bowl being before the SB this year look for quite a few players voted to not play.

Yes! There's a debate on whether Light will get his LT job back because rookie Sebastian Vollmer is playing like Ryan Clady of last year.

Ryan Diem is placed directly between Ryan Clady and Ryan Harris on the ballot. He is stealing votes. Do the vote counters have sufficient training in determining the difference between a dimpled chad and a full fledged vote? Clearly the voting system has been compromised...

I personally don't believe the fan vote should count as 1/3. Just for the above reasons. The players and coaches know much more about who is really deserving that us. One thing good about this though is that the fickle media has NO say.
