    9 of the Redskins finished on top in fan voting, but I highly doubt that many make it in. I don't see the players/coaches voting to be that skewed.

    And hey, fan voting only sucks if you have no fans

    Nothing has been taken yet. This is only the fan voting. The players and coaches still have to vote.

    Yes though--fan voting sucks. Stupid results like Bob Sanders even being in consideration much less on the list after only playing 5 games.

    pro-bowl voting is a crock of shite, based on personality rather than performance.

    I have said this before but what the hell I will say it again. FAN voting in the NFL is only 1/3 of what makes a pro-bowler.


    I wonder if anyone actually listens or they just ***** to hear themself?

    I know that, what I meant was that some fans don't base their votes on current performance but on personality and profile.
