The Full Redskins Pro Bowl Rundown

Because I should have done this earlier....here's the full rundown of the Skins' attempt to end the Pro Bowl once and for all Vote the Redskins Ticket results. By the way, those of you who were concerned that Jason Taylor has been a bust at defensive end? No worries. The fans have decided the he should be a starting Pro Bowl outside linebacker. (And yes, coaches and players will even this out, but still.)

(My earlier post was just about the leaders at every position, and Taylor isn't the leader, but since there would be two starting OLBs, Taylor makes it at No. 2.)

He would be one of 11 12 Pro Bowl starters if the fans had their way, with eight other Redskins within one spot of a starting role. Check out ESPN.com's Mike Sando's spreadsheet; here are the highlights:

Jason Campbell: Fourth among NFC quarterbacks, behind Drew Brees, Eli Manning and Kurt Warner.

Clinton Portis: First in the NFC and first in the NFL at running back, by more than 100,000 votes.

Santana Moss: Third in the NFC and third in the NFL at wide receiver, behind only Boldin and Fitzgerald.

Mike Sellers: First in the NFC and first in the NFL at fullback, by more than 110,000 votes (342k to 229k).

Chris Cooley: Second in the NFC and second in the NFL at tight end, with 150,000 more votes than Tony Gonzalez, the AFC leader.

Casey Rabach: Second in the NFC and fourth in the NFL at center.

Pete Kendall and Randy Thomas: Second and third in the NFC, and third and fourth in the NFL at guard. Thomas, you'll recall, is the player who publicly said that he did not deserve to be a Pro Bowler. You didn't listen.

Chris Samuels and Jon Jansen: First and fifth in the NFC at tackle. Samuels is first in the NFL, with nearly 50 percent more votes than any other player (302k to 207k).

Andre Carter: Fourth in the NFC at defensive end.

Cornelius Griffin and Kedric Golston: First and fourth in the NFC, and second and fifth in the NFL at defensive tackle.

Jason Taylor, Marcus Washington and Rocky McIntosh: Second, third and fifth in the NFC at outside linebacker. Taylor is fourth in the entire NFL at outside linebacker. We might as well elect a turtle to be chief orange picker of the Upper Peninsula. I mean, what is this?

London Fletcher: First in the NFC, and second in the NFL at outside linebacker, behind only Ray Lewis. That makes sense, actually.

Shawn Springs and Carlos Rogers: Second and third in the NFC, and third and fourth in the NFL at cornerback.

Chris Horton: First in the NFC at strong safety, with more than 100 percent more votes than anyone else. Second in the NFL.

LaRon Landry: First in the NFL at free safety, just ahead of Ed Reed.

Shaun Suisham: First in the NFC, and first in the NFL at kicker. He's also something like 27th in the NFL at touchback percentage.

Ryan Plackemeier: Second in the NFC, and second in the NFL at punter. He has 60,000 more votes than any AFC punter.

Rock Cartwright: Second in the NFC, and second in the NFL at kick returner. He has 60,000 more votes than any AFC kick returner.

Khary Campbell: First in the NFC, and first in the NFL at specialist.

sorry im late to the party...i was busy voting for the pro bowl!!! ;)

no one was outraged last year with dallas getting 13 and now they are complaining cause skins fans are making a mockery of the system...f'em all!!!

i voted a bunch of times for the skins ticket and im glad i did because of all the snubbing our players got in the past and b/c dallas got 13 in last year which was total bs...

im all for it and think it was a god thing...now maybe they make a change to the system...

now if only fans could vote for the BCS...then we could make a mockery of that system by voting maryland into the bcs championship and maybe...finally...they would be forced to go to a playoff!!!

'nuff said...HAIL!!
