LaRon Landry leading in Pro Bowl vote

By Rick Maese

Safety LaRon Landry is the only Redskins player who's currently among the NFC's top vote-getters to appear in the Pro Bowl.

With four weeks still remaining in the voting , the NFL on Tuesday released a partial update on the balloting so far. With 112,333 votes, Landry was the lone Washington player to lead all conference players at his position. The league didn't release the full voting numbers, so it's impossible to know how far behind other Redskins' players might be.

Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning leads all players with 496,658 votes. He's followed by Philadelphia quarterback Michael Vick (405,292), Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson (400,921), New England quarterback Tom Brady (368,469) and Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers (343,177).

It seems that the Redskins top possibilities for the Pro Bowl are linebacker Brian Orakpo, cornerback DeAngelo Hall, linebacker London Fletcher, tight end Chris Cooley and Lorenzo Alexander as a special teams contributor.

Green Bay's Clay Matthews is the top vote-getter as an outside linebacker (183,894), Green Bay's Charles Woodson is the top cornerback (153,713), San Francisco's Patrick Willis is the top inside linebacker (112,436), Atlanta's Tony Gonzalez is the top tight end (178,129), and Minnesota's Heath Farwell is the top special teams player (80,993).

Voting is open to fans until December 20. The 43-man rosters for each conference are chosen based on a consensus of votes by fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts for one-third of the overall total. Players and coaches cast their votes December 22-23.

DeAnglo Hall, Asente', Wood should be the corners. Rak has to have a good 2 1/2 sack game. He needs some sacks. But he should go in behind Clay.

Once the players start voting, people like Lorenzo will get in. Cooley has some of the best stats in the NFC so he should be in there too.

Landry should be leading in toilet bowl votes for making so many opponents poop themselves.

According to J-Reid yes, according to the Redskins no.

Reid tried to jump the gun and he was flat out wrong.

Dash McPoop in the house. Any relation to underscore McPoop?

Shouldn't it say Poopy_McPoop? Is this really Poopy or just a Poopy Imposter?

F-Seattle and that d-bag coach of theirs.

Isn't there an unwritten rule that you don't snag guys off someone else practice squad?

Not sure if the Vikes turn it around, but if they do, Frazier will get a lot of credit. But they missed Sidney Rice ... a ton. Thing is, they aren't missing him now...

Posted by: zcezcest1 | November 23, 2010 1:27 PM |

He played last week and they still got smoked, have some confidence.

Posted by: Flounder21

First game back, rust to be expected. 2nd game back ... ought to be a lot sharper. The upgrade from Berrian to Rice ... massive.

No. Only a warning: Don't expect much. These are the guys who aren't good enough to be on the Redskins roster. Remember Anthony Mix? Giants practice squad.

My only concern? i may have ladled on the sarcasm too heavy.

Posted by: TheCork | November 23, 2010 1:06 PM

While Cork has never had "this concern" it is not actually a lie. It is more sarcasm. That's Cork's only concern ever: I may not have been sarcastic enough.

Thanks for the free psychoanalysis, Beeps. Do you have regular office hours?

But in truth I am also concerned about world peace, Global Warming, the Redskins front office and the mental stability of about half the contributors to this blog.

And for the record, it was more an ironic aside than actual sarcasm.

The thing that most disappointing about Laron is that after a guy gains like 20 yards on him and he makes the tackle, he gets up and flexes like he did something special. Once he outgrows that sh*t, he will be on his way to being mature player.

Posted by: FedorEm | November 23, 2010 2:11 PM | Report abuse

So who tackles the guy after Asante and Deangelo both jump the route???

Posted by: Stu27 | November 23, 2010 2:13 PM | Report abuse

Now we know what Laron has been doing in his spare time -- manipulating 10,000 sock puppets -- who are all trying to vote him into the Pro Bowl.

Although his numbers are down a bit this week -- because he has also been working to get Bristol Palin into the finals for Dancing with the Stars.

Now if Laron could only get himself back into the starting line-up.

I'm here most days. Rest of your post is also sarcasm, disguised as an ironic aside.

Meant non-sarcastically.

Of all the injured players Sunday, the one most likely to be missed THIS Sunday, IMO--Lo Alexander.

Dude is maybe the best STmer in league, and starting LB, plus an inspiration to the team.

Anyone know if he will go, Sunday?

Am I one of the sock puppets beep??? Actually, I think I've been doing pretty good today sticking to the football talk and keeping away from the schtick!

Accidental send. Let me clarify. Smart guys don’t risk putting certain players on practice squads. But every now and then, people sneak through. The same smart guys who put Banks on the active roster, may actually find one.

Late in the year, it’s more of a risk leaving good players exposed. P Squad player have to be signed to another team’s active roster for restof season. It’s less of a risk to sign one with fewer games left.

The Redskins who deserve to be in Pro Bowl whether it be as a starter or second string are Landry, Hall, Orakpo, and Fletcher...Donovan should be 3rd string, because of what he's been able to do behind a horrible line and possibly Cooley as a 3rd string TE.

Makes you remember Sean Taylor at this time. He also was leading the voting. Still missed.
