No Chiefs Lead In Fan Voting Portion Of 2012 Pro Bowl

The NFL has released the final results of the fan voting portion of the 2012 Pro Bowl, which counts for a third of the vote, and to no one's surprise three quarterbacks are the top three vote-getters in the entire league -- Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

The Kansas City Chiefs, sadly, don't have a single player leading the league in voting at any position. You think LB Tamba Hali might have a shot but that goes to Terrell Suggs, or LB Derrick Johnson at inside linebacker but Ray Lewis leads at that position.

Surprised? Part of this is just a numbers thing (and part of it is that the Chiefs sucked in more than a few games this year). The Packers are one of the largest fan bases so they have someone leading in nine of the 17 positions available.

And when Chad Clifton, the Packers' tackle who hasn't played since Week 5, leads the NFC in votes at his position...well, that tells you the meaning of the fan voting portion of the Pro Bowl.

The leading vote-getters in the AFC, which is a mix of Patriots, Ravens and Steelers, is listed below.
