Twenty Redskins Lead Pro Bowl Voting

Whomever the Republicans want to run against Barack Obama in 2012 needs to call the Redskins marketing department for some help. They can really get the voters to the polls.

Well, if we all could vote for out presidents online.

Because of an aggressive campaign, the Redskins have managed to get 20 of their players as the top vote getters in the Pro Bowl voting. The Redskins have leaders in 16 of the 19 positions.

Right now, eight of the 11 starters on both offense and defense would be Redskins. All four special teams positions are led by Redskins -- including punter Ryan Plackemeier, who joined the team midseason. Shawn Springs is the leading vote getter at cornerback even though he hasn't played but half the season.

Fullback Mike Sellers has nearly 33% of the total votes for his position and could be a shoo-in to win. Rookie safety Chris Horton has a 206% lead over second place. The fan voting accounts for one-third of the overall tally and it isn't known if the coaches vote or players vote would be enough to knock all of them out.

Clinton Portis trails only Drew Brees in overall voting and should be in the Pro Bowl. You can argue that Sellers, Chris Cooley and Santana Moss should also be there. Guys like Andre Carter (who is second to Justin Tuck in voting for defensive ends) don't.
