    Final fan voting for Pro Bowl

    DEFENSIVE END (3): 1) Mario Williams; 2) Dwight Freeney; 3) Kyle Vanden Bosch; 4) Jevon Kearse; 5) Aaron Smith.


    Justice served !! And Congrats to AJ as well !! NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Dec. 11-12. So lets hope their peers don't screw them out of Hawaii

    Boggles my mind how AJ's behind Randy Moss. I can MAYBE understand Brandon Marshall...but have either of them REALLY outperformed AJ this year?

    I feel bad for Kris Brown and Leach; they were both very deserving. Congrats to Mario and AJ nonetheless.

    What does that say for Brown's learning curve that 4 of the top 5 DE's are in our division, and he gets to practice against one every day?

    Hope this is enough to make everyone give him a little bit of slack

    My guess is the players and coaches will solidify AJ as the 3rd pick, if not move him higher, since they have 2/3 of the votes. His peers know how great he is, and with them, I think its more of a respect thing than a popularity thing.

    I can't help back to Mario's first season and all of the threads that proclaimed that the Mario pick would be a bust if he was not selected to the Pro-Bowl.

    We all knew half way through last season that Mario was special. He got shafted last year - and really solidified himself this year as one of the league's best.

    Congrats Mario. Congrats Texas front office. Congrats to all of the fans who defended the pick when it wasn't a popular choice.

    I hate this kind of voting! BUT, my congrats to Mario and AJ. KB got screwed, and that ticks me off. Best kicker in the league IMHO!!

    Fan voting sucks. Bob Sanders is on the list with 5 games played on the season. Frankly, I think this should be like the "close doors" button on elevators. Its there to make the hamsters feel good but it isn't hooked up to anything.

    That is why in the NFL, unlike baseball, peers and coaches have 2/3 of the vote. Those are the guys who make sure guys like Leach go to Hawaii.

    That button has saved me from riding with some questionably smelling individuals at least once!

    Other than hospitals, it isn't hooked up in 99% of buildings. It's the placebo button.

    Fan voting sucks. LT has done squat this year. Slaton is having a much better year than him.

    There are some questionable folks going to the pro bowl, that's for sure. In any case, congrats to Mario and AJ. Glad to see AJ going again, and Mario finally getting his due.

    that is if they make it past the final vote counting. I'm pretty sure they will.
