Why? It already is a popularity contest with fan voting.
If you want every advantage in attracting good free agents to the Texans, then you need to show you can vote both deserving and undeserving players into the Pro Bowl.
McNair can do a lot of things to make Houston a destination that coaches/players want to come to. But there's nothing he can do to make this one of the traditional franchises. Long standing franchises with huge fanbases vote undeserving players in all the time. We need to try to compete with that the best we can with social media resources. We won the USAA Military contest that way, but the Pro Bowl is more difficult but not impossible.
