    I guess the Human Society and PETA did some last minute campaigning to derail Vick:)

    By the way, Peyton Manning has no business being in the Pro-Bowl this year.

    Brady wins. I’ve heard that before.

  3. nfl4ever says: Dec 22, 2010 1:44 PM

    And the MVP voting should follow suit.

  4. qbcoach9 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:48 PM

    Matt Dodge received the most votes for execution, John McKay’s vote included

  5. camprobot says: Dec 22, 2010 1:51 PM

    Jahvid Best? LOL..

  6. mikea311 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:52 PM

    Glad to see the fans still have some class.

  7. crabboil says: Dec 22, 2010 1:52 PM

    what exactly did Jahvid Best do? undrafted rookie Chris Ivory was far more impressive…

  8. elyasm says: Dec 22, 2010 1:55 PM

    Nice, so does that mean Brady gets the MVP?

  9. richm2256 says: Dec 22, 2010 1:55 PM

    Congrats to Brady, Belichick, the coaching staff, the offense, and the entire team and organization.

    Job well done (so far!)

    As much as I hate to admit it, Mike Vick HAS become a much better – and completely mor dangerous – quarterback than he ever was before. Kudos to Andy Reid and the Eagles staff for finally geting it through Vick’s head how an NFL QB is SUPPOSED to perform.

    Vick is still a POS as a human being, however.

    Over/Under on how many on this list will actually play in the Pro Bowl: 2

    With the emergence of fantasy sports, fans are getting smarter and smarter about deserving players. I think all sports should move to more fan based decision making when it comes to All-Star games.

  12. jetscheat says: Dec 22, 2010 1:58 PM

    Suggs is upset with Tom and said he didn’t vote for him because he knew Tom wouldn’t vote for him. What would you bet Suggs filled the form out wrong??

  13. hairpie says: Dec 22, 2010 2:05 PM

    dont worry philly fans and animal haters… vick will be able to play. Brady will be busy that week.

  14. cleverbob says: Dec 22, 2010 2:08 PM

    Smells like another Bristol Palin / Dancing with the Stars moment…

  15. benjaminbreeg11 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:10 PM

    Only makes sense.

  16. grpatriot says: Dec 22, 2010 2:11 PM

    He truely deserved it!! This is his best year as a Pro.

  17. cleverbob says: Dec 22, 2010 2:17 PM

    Let me clarify my previous post, although I’m sure many of you are already submitting angry replies.

    The similarity is in the fact that there was probably vote stuffing by many people that had an agenda outside of deciding who was most deserving. I am not claiming that Brady is a talentless, awkward cow.

  18. tedvalentine says: Dec 22, 2010 2:20 PM

    Roddy White should be on that list, even over Ryan. He has had the most outstanding season of any player on the Falcons.

    @hairpie

    If you’re going to post on a football blog, at least know the team’s conferences. Vick and Brady will be on different squads.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Ummmm… Vick is NFC, and Brady is AFC. If Vick isn’t busy himself, he can play no matter what Brady is doing that week.

  20. joerevs300 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:31 PM

    The Pro Bowl is completely irrelevant other than giving these players even MORE money (because it’s built into their contracts).

    No one watches the game, it has no impact, if the Patriots get to the SB, none of their players will play (just like in the NFC), in short, it’s meaningless.

  21. gosuhgo says: Dec 22, 2010 2:32 PM

    All those jahvid best votes must have come during the first month.

    —————

    Seeing as one is in the AFC and one is in the NFC, they’d both get to play anyway, genius.

    MVP – Most Valuable Passer (of passes 0-10 yards).

    How about MVP nods to his receivers who are responsible for 95% of his yardage totals due to their run after catch abilities?

  24. lanjoith says: Dec 22, 2010 2:53 PM

    Good to see America doesn’t hate Philip Rivers anymore. Being the best QB in the league will do wonders for your image.

  25. rickah8888 says: Dec 22, 2010 2:54 PM

    Pro Bowl? They still have that silly little outing?

  26. 3octaveFart says: Dec 22, 2010 2:57 PM

    hey Vick, get yourself a couple of cameras next time.

  27. bigbaldpapahawk says: Dec 22, 2010 3:05 PM

    Much respect for Vick for accomplishing what he has this season. A lot of players would take a big dive in ability spending 18 months out of the league. Especially at quarterback.

    The man paid his dues and has realized that he has to work for it. He has and he is playing on a much higher level than he was before he got into trouble.

  28. smokehouse56 says: Dec 22, 2010 3:16 PM

    The only thing worse than the Pro Bowl is the NHL All Star Game. By far.

  29. mike83ri says: Dec 22, 2010 3:18 PM

    How in the world did Jahvid Best get more votes than Mike Wallace or Devon McCourtey?

  30. CT Pats Fan says: Dec 22, 2010 3:18 PM

    Awww, poor t-sizzle. Tommy didn’t vote for you? Don’t worry, we’ll vote for you. ok?

  31. tiffpats4eva says: Dec 22, 2010 3:22 PM

    Yesss! It’s Tom’s year.

    Much love to Vick and the Eagles.

  32. darind61 says: Dec 22, 2010 3:37 PM

    Is this article really relevant? Who really watches the entire game anyway? It’s like any other all star game :) So Brady got more votes, so Vick finished second duhhhhhhh.

  33. bleedblue18 says: Dec 22, 2010 3:37 PM

    Not a shocker, even with Vicks amazing play this year Vick still has millions that hate him out there because of the dog fighting and would never vote for him.

  34. daffy87 says: Dec 22, 2010 3:50 PM

    No love for Joe Haden, Devon McCourty, or TJ Ward?

  35. gypjet says: Dec 22, 2010 4:10 PM

    This just proves that the Northeastern United States is full of a bunch of Obama voters who get unemployment, sit home on their computers, and dream of Tom Brady’s combine photo. Have some more government cheese you idiots.

  36. nepatriots128154 says: Dec 22, 2010 4:13 PM

    How was Devin McCourty not one of the top rookies?

  37. brentm01 says: Dec 22, 2010 6:45 PM

    It is no surprise that Tom Brady deserves the Pro Bowl as the #1 player in the NFL. He proves through his class and professionalism that he continues to be one of the finest players EVER in the NFL, if not the best in the history of the game. That’s all I have to say about that!

  38. dumbitup says: Dec 22, 2010 7:13 PM

    @tedvalentine
    @touchdownroddywhite
    @bleedgreen

    You guys are so dumb that when you go to a mindreader you get charged half price.

    What @hairpie was saying is that Brady will be too busy with the Superbowl to play in the Pro Bowl which is the week BEFORE.
