My anti-Pro Bowl stance has been spelled out in this space multiple times, and I’ve avoided updates on fan voting until now.
But since fan voting ends soon, I figured I’d offer a look of where AFC South players stand. Titans fans will be unhappy as they have no one in the top five anywhere. But who's deserving, really?
Here's everyone from the division who ranks in the top five at his position:
Fullback: 5. James Casey.
Tight end: 3. Owen Daniels.
Center: 5. Jeff Saturday.
Free safety: 4. Antoine Bethea.
Fan voting counts for one third of the results and runs through Dec. 19. Player voting and coach voting comes later and holds similar weight.
Ultimately remember this: With the Super Bowl participants uninvolved in the game and injured guys and superstars dropping out, a whole bunch of guys who are hardly all-stars will be part of it.
