With the Way Peterson is running I would hope the whole O-line gets to the Pro-Bowl

Adrian Peterson leads NFC running backs in Pro Bowl voting and rookie offensive tackle Matt Kalil led all NFC tackles with 74,615 votes. Percy Harvin wasnít the top vote-getter among NFC wide receivers (that honor belongs to the Giantsí Victor Cruz), but Harvin was the top kick returner in the NFC with 50,994 votes.

The Vikings had one positional leader on defense, where DE Jared Allen garnered 150,611 votes.

At least Jerome Felton should as the FB. I don't think anyone expected him to play as well as he has. Again, why did Detroit let him go before last season? They certainly could have used him, because Scheffler (who apparently plays both FB/TE) can certainly catch the ball, but he's only so-so as a blocker.

I find that amusing considering the Packers don't even run the ball.

I've always voted for the FB on the team with the leading rusher. So Felton deserves it more. He's got my vote

With two games before the selections, who do you think has made a late season push to earn a trip to Hawaii?

Peterson, no question
Greenway?
Winfield?
Kalil?
Allen?
Smith?
Walsh?

Peterson, Greenway, Kalil, Allen are near locks.

Walsh deserves to go, but the voters will likely give it to either Akers or Zeuerlein.

Percy Harvin (KR), Adrian Peterson, Jared Allen and Matt Kalil are currently leading Pro Bowl voting at their respective positions.

I think Matt Kalil is a lock. Fan voting for LTs is always name recognition and there simply arent that many recognizably great LTS in the NFC. The AFC is loaded with big name LTs, but the NFC has maybe Joe Staley and Donald Penn. Kalil is a lock and should be for a long time.


Agreed with everything but I dont necessarily think Greenway and Winfield will be in because of name recognition. Greenway is currently 2nd in tackles, has 2 sacks and 1 INT...thats a great season for a LB. Winfield is 35 and has 93 tackles along with 3 picks and has been healthy all year, currently our best corner statistically

According to some metrics Winfield isn't just our best CB, he is the best CB this year.

As he should be given how he is used in the Vikes defense. I rarely see him down field covering receivers like Robinson, Cook and Jefferson have been. so i dont buy those ratings given how limited his role has become.
