Pro Bowl voters not showing up at the polls for Bears

| 11 Comments | No TrackBacks

Early returns on Pro Bowl fan balloting don't support the Bears.

Not surprisingly, there are Minnesota Vikings leading or among the leaders at many positions.

When you win, your fans show up at the polls (with multiple ballots). But the Bears' skid of late has kept their supporters away from the polls, so far.

In the first numbers released by the league, the Bears have three players among the leading vote getters at their position:

Center Olin Kreutz, 5th

Returner Devin Hester, 3rd

Outside linebacker Lance Briggs, 5th

Briggs trails Dallas' DeMarcus Ware, Minnesota's Chad Greenway, New Orleans' Scott Fujita and Green Bay's Aaron Kampman.

Quarterback Jay Cutler is not in the top five. The leading NFC quarterbacks are: Drew Brees, Brett Favre, Aaron Rodgers, Eli Manning and Matt Ryan.

Fan balloting right here counts one-third in the selection process for the Pro Bowl that will be played in Miami this year.

Do you blame us ??? The only one who should be at the Pro Bowl is Lance Briggs.

Briggs deserves better, he has played his @$$ off. Whats this Hester isn't in the top 2-3 recievers, what the #### is Kreutz doing up there?

Kampman has sucked at ROLB, people are stupid, not to mention ROLB should have its own catagory, they are not true LB's.

I am surprised Ryan is up there, he has not been that great. McNabb should be on that list before him, Romo and Warner have both been better than Ryan as well, Ryan has been stinking it up a bit this year.

Probowl??????? Are you f###### kidding me?? I wouldnt vote these loosers in as captins of a high school team.

Krutz is awful. He was too small to begin with and now he cant even snap the ball right.

Hester could have gone as a return man but Angelo and Lovie ruined him to try and make this great #1 Wr. Its woreking out great huh?

Briggs needs mor impact plays. Tacles are nice but hed should have had more ints and more FFs.

Cutler should go. I willk vote him for giving what he has to work with on this offense. But thats about it.

Ive just about had it with this team. Its been a hard life for me. My mom was a "lady of te night" and my dad ran a diaper biz but that didnt work out so my mom had to work extra shifts. Its ok she told me work was fun for the most part. But my uncle hd to watch me and well you know how that turned out. He is in jail right now for what he did to me. Oh and right now I am in charge of tyhe fries at Burger King but hey at least I can eat their for free as much as iwant. The only thing I have in life to chear me up is football and this blog. I like the Bears I am a big, big fan of them but seing how Angelo has ran this team into ground makes me sick.

Damn it Creighton, I was posting as you on this blog, stop making me look bad. You where not suppose to post before me, I ban you from posting before I post as you. Know your going to get it, I have been holding back but you called down the thunder by posting as you before I could post as you. Time for a song battle, take this @$$ hole.

I love your posts
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search this blog
I want you to find me
I forget who I am
I want you to remind me

Chorus:
I don't want anybody else
When I read your posts
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

You're the blogger who makes me come running
You're the poster who makes me shine
When you're around I'm always laughing
I want to make your skin mine

I close my eyes
And see you before me(in pink panties)
Think I would die
If you were to ignore me
A fool could see
Just how much I adore you
I get down on my knees
I'd do anything for you

Chorus
I don't want anybody else
When I read your posts
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

I love your posts
I want you to love me
When I'm feelin' down
I want you above me
I search myself
I want you to find me
I forget myself
I want you to remind me

Chorus
I don't want anybody else
When I read your posts
I touch myself
I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

(spoken)
I want you
I don't want anybody else
And when I think about you
I touch myself
Ooh, oooh, oooooh, aaaaaah

Chorus
I don't want anybody else
When I read your posts
I touch myself
Oh I don't want anybody else
Oh no, oh no, oh no

I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself
I touch myself

I honestly do.
I touch myself
I touch myself
I honestly do.

In your face handsome guy.

Briggs? What has he done? He's done nothing this year worth mentioning. He has not provided the team with leadership. He has not changed the outcome of any game. Teams don't have to game plan for him.

This is the first year I haven't voted, and will not vote, in the past 7 or so. I just can't do it.

That song parody was pretty darn funny.

I didn't expect the superbowl but I expected much much better than this.

None of these guys deserve to be in the Pro Bowl this year. Not one.

Can we repurpose our votes to get Angelo and the entire coaching staff voted off the island?

And you losers wonder why we suck........Did I say you could use my name?? GO COLTS!!!

So ripper, this is the first year you haven't voted, is it?

nice bunch ya got here, Brad

Hitman, don't be an ass. You know what the Pro Bowl means to players? More money for escalators and whatnot, and with the possible exception of Briggs, I just don't see the team playing hard and smart enough for them to earn more money. I root for da Beloved each and every game, but this squad is not worthy of the pro bowl. Being a fan doesn't mean you have turn a blind eye to the way they are playing and support their pro bowl bids if they don't deserve it, that's just stupid and detrimental to your team. If your team is fairly lousy like our current Bears, if they can say "Well, we have a pro bowl receiver" because a bunch of blind idiots voted for their guy, it prevents management from going out and getting better talent. A pro bowl boycott is one of the few ways the fans can make a statement without actually missing the games, which I'm not willing to do.

BRad Maynard is the only one who deserves the pro bowl accolade.
