Jared Allen and Adrian Peterson have been among the best players at their positions this season, and fans are voting accordingly. Allen is the leading vote getter among all NFL DEs with 488,239 votes and Peterson is the leading vote getter among all NFL RBs and the 5th leading vote getter in all of the NFL with 680,428 votes.
Earlier this week, we promoted Vikings LB Chad Greenway as being worthy of consideration. Another big game on Sunday against Denver parlayed with a few impact plays – forced/recovered fumbles, INTs and sacks – along the way will start to garner him more consideration.

The 2012 Pro Bowl will be played on Sunday, January 29, 2012 and televised live on NBC at 7:00 pm (ET) from Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii. The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group’s vote counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 21-22.
The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.
