Lamar Jackson leads fan Pro Bowl voting

Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson has rapidly become perhaps the NFL’s most popular player.

Jackson leads all players in Pro Bowl voting, the NFL announced today. That’s well deserved, given the way Jackson has played this year, and also a sign of how much fun it is to watch Jackson, who is perhaps the most exciting runner in the NFL right now as well as one of the best passers.

The second overall vote getter is Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes, with Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson in third, Vikings running back Dalvin Cook in fourth and Panthers running back Christian McCaffrey in fifth.

Players leading the voting at other positions are 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk, Cowboys receiver Amari Cooper, Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce, Packers tackle David Bakhtiari, Ravens guard Marshal Yanda, Cowboys center Travis Frederick, Ravens kicker Justin Tucker, Chiefs return specialist Mecole Hardman, 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, Rams defensive tackle Aaron Donald, Steelers outside linebacker T.J. Watt, Seahawks inside linebacker Bobby Wagner, Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters, Jets strong safety Jamal Adams, Steelers free safety Minkah Fitzpatrick, Patriots punter Jake Bailey and Patriots special teamer Matthew Slater.

  1. If I might take this chance to do a cheap plug for a player on my fav team (which I know is going to get downvoted to oblivion). Can I please ask for fans to consider voting for Ali Marpet? According to PFF he’s consistently been one of the best Guards in the league for a few years now (and by their ranking is top 5 this year) but never gets any attention because he’s part of a bad team in the Bucs. Please don’t deny him credit for playing well, 1 man can only do so much for his team.

    Using PFF kinda hurts his case, but nontheless, he’s actually pretty solid

  3. I remember when a NE player was bumbed out when he didn’t make the Probowl..

    The goat said to him “That doesn’t matter! Do you think I play for pro bowls??? Cheer up man!”

    Regardless, good for Lamar. He deserves to be nominated.

  4. He clearly should have been the AFC offensive player of the week, not Josh Allen.

    I guess they had to find a way to give the Bills something, anything, for the delusional fan base they have.

    Shouldn’t matter too much, he’ll have other plans in Miami the following weekend
    ——————————————————

    You must mean he’s going to Gronk’s beach party, because the Patriots have the Super Bowl booked.

  6. I don’t really hate or like Baltimore. They beat my team in the super bowl, but I really think their coach is maybe the most underrated in the league, and by all accounts a very stand-up guy. Lamar Jackson is absolutely phenomenal to watch. sure he’s not the best pocket passer at this time, but he’s the most dangerous quarterback in the league and the most fun to watch. Joe burrow is older than he is. I hope we get to watch him for many years to come.

  7. The MVP, pro bowl talk will sound very silly when the Ravens go one and done in the playoffs.

  8. Anyone else notice how Marcus Peters is leading the cornerbacks in Pro Bowl voting? Lol feels great after listening to all of the Ravens haters tell us how we made an awful deal and that Peters is terrible.

  9. Every negative Lamar comment seems to come from Patriots fans. It’s as if they are trying to grasp with the reality their 42 year old quarterback is being outplayed weekly by a 22 year old with a bright future.

  10. Funny how Justin Tucker was shafted in previous years, but this year he’s not been needed much and also missed a couple routine kicks… and yet NOW he’s the top vote getter? OKAY AMERICA!

    The Dak disrespect is real.

    1st in passing yards
    2nd in passing TDs
    2nd in total TDs
    1st in QBR

    **************************

    Don’t worry, Cowboys will be out in the wild card round if they can even win their lousy, lousy division. And after Drew Brees, Aaron Rodgers, Russel Wilson and Jimmy G all turn down the Pro Bowl, Dak will be the starter. Or maybe backup to Cousins.

    Don’t know what stats you’re reading but he’s got a QBR of 104 and is #8 on the list. The highest is Russell with 114 with cousins right behind him at 114. If you’re getting that info off NFL website that’s just for passing yards. He’s in the bottom half of the top ten in QBR. He does lead Russell in interceptions with 9 to Russell’s 2. No hating it’s just anyone would have time to sit in the pocket with the line he has blocking for him.

  13. Russell Wilson had zero interceptions until the Marcus Peters Pick 6. That trade worked out immediately for baltimore.

    I was hoping that Marcus wouldn’t know the Baltimore defense but what mattered was that he knew Russell Wilson.

  14. I’m a cowboys fan but I’m rooting for this kid…..he’s been really incredible this season and deserves it! I may add that I’m not a fan of running QB’s but…. again this kid has earned it!

    I agree. Makes no sense. All I know is that, by the time his career is over, JT WILL be the GOAT

    Lamar is the flavor of the week. teams will eventually figure him out.
    _______________________________________________

    Lamar has been figured out:
    you load the box, he passes over you
    you drop back, he runs for max yardage
    you use a spy, that dude gets faked out
    And your team loses the game LOL
    Didn’t take a genius to figure that out.
    News flash: mobile QBs have always given BB fits…Newton, Watson, Mahomes, Russell and now Lamar.
    This year, he won’t have 5-yards-a-pass TB12 to bail him out…gonna be nice.

  17. Amari Cooper: 56 receptions for 886 yards.
    Michael Thomas: 94 receptions for 1,141 yards.

    At least Amari Cooper will get to actually “play” in the Pro Bowl….

  18. “Lamar is the flavor of the week. teams will eventually figure him out.”

    What is there to figure out? The dude is excellent at throwing the ball, and also has superhero levels of speed and agility. It’s figured out… and he can’t be stopped.
