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
