  • Initial Pro Bowl Results

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/6913876

    The five highest vote getters at all positions are Kansas City Chiefs running back Priest Holmes (808,948), Tennessee Titans quarterback Steve McNair (806,696), Indianapolis Colts quarterback Peyton Manning (765,236), Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Randy Moss (744,699), and Chiefs tight end Tony Gonzalez (721,179).

    By anyone's standard, they are among the best performers of the 2003 season. McNair and Manning are easily the league's top two quarterbacks, and are first and second on every short list for league MVP honors, with Holmes bunched among the rest.

    Kansas City's Trent Green (443,349) is third among AFC quarterbacks. Minnesota's Daunte Culpepper (524,307), Green Bay's Brett Favre (510,580) and Seattle's Matt Hasselbeck (358,101) lead quarterbacks in the NFC. After Holmes, Baltimore's Jamal Lewis (606,140) and Denver's Clinton Portis (365,512) are second and third, respectively, among AFC running backs. The Packers' Ahman Green (717,912), Carolina's Stephen Davis (605,689) and New Orleans' Deuce McAllister (520,594) occupy the first three spots among NFC running backs. Moss and St. Louis' Torry Holt (681,801) are the leaders among NFC receivers, while Indianapolis' Marvin Harrison (683,181) and Cincinnati's Chad Johnson (474,051) top the AFC receiver list.

    Kansas City's Dante Hall (428,568) is more than 400,000 votes ahead of the nearest challenger among AFC kick returners (Pittsburgh's Antwaan Randle El ) and more than 300,000 votes ahead of the NFC leader, Philadelphia's Brian Westbrook.

    No defender in either conference has as many votes as Baltimore linebacker Ray Lewis (306,317).

    With the possible exception of giving Favre too much credit for reputation rather than current production, the fans have gotten it right. They even know enough to give Miami's Adewale Ogunleye 166,078 votes, second in voting among AFC defensive ends and the conference leader with 13½ sacks, more than twice as many votes as his better-known linemate, Jason Taylor, who has seven sacks.

      Holmes? Portis and Lewis are better backs then Holmes, the only reason he is in front is becasue of the chefs record, which we know is OVERRATED...

        Really?

        "overrated" is a bold statement just because you beat the Chiefs once. Or twice according to Bronco fans.

        You would say the same thing about NE if you would have won that game....please.

        How come the Broncos coudlnt beat the Bears at home?
        How did the Broncos blow that game to NE?

        just curious...

          yes overrated, Rudi Johson ran all over your team and he isn't even starting now, now the Bears game that was just a fluke, we let ourselves get beat, the NE game can you say back up QB? The word is out on how to beat up on KC, run run run, you can't stop CP more less any other back... that is how I say OVERRATED

            Good grief. I can't believe folks get so bent out of shape over Pro Bowl voting.

            Just because Portis proclaimed himself as the greatest running back in football doesn't make it so. He did play against the frauds (as Bronco fans are quick to point out) from KC twice to pad his stats.

            Portis is definitely on the upswing, though, and is pretty damn good and young, which should mean he lands in plenty of Pro Bowls before his career is over.
            Despite all the hype, once you finally get a hammer, you don't hammer nearly as much as you think you will.

              That has nothing to do with Priest tho.

              Not only is he going to go to the Pro Bowl. He'll win the right by hundreds of thousands of votes more then Portis.

              Unless of course you're implying that everyone in the country is an idiot unless they are a Portis fan.

              Give the kid a couple more years.

              EDIT: heh Sorry RC, my post wasn't to you. You just typed faster than me. :p

                Pro Bowl

                I am a huge portis fan. But he still has to prove him for the next 2 years for being considered the top RB.
                Although Priest Holmes did not have a good game against the Broncos, he is a great RB as well. And there is nothing wrong in him being selected. He is not a Ray Lewis kind of person and he has a good character. Got to have some sportsman spirit and need to give credit to other deserving athletes from opposing teams as well.

                  Portis or Priest Holmes

                  Priest Holmes is over-rated and Portis is under-rated.

                        The only reason Holmes is in front is because of the chefs record? That's about as dumb as your man Ozzy trying to ride an ATV while taking 42 different prescription drugs. Do you guys have the same doctor?

                          Priest Holmes is over-rated because
                          1. He is with the chiefs who have been lucky this season
                          2. You support the Chiefs
