At this time of year, we usually see the name Ray Lewis leading the voting for the Pro Bowl for the umpteenth time in his illustrious career. Unfortunately, due to his triceps injury and missing much of the season, his name is nowhere to be seen in the current leading vote-getters.
However, a total of six Ravens do lead their positions, including a couple of new names that haven't been to the NFL's version of the All-Star game. The Pro Bowl is played in Hawaii the week between the two conference Championship Games and the Super Bowl.
Ravens who have been voted to represent the AFC in the past and lead their respective positions once again include, FB Vonta Leach, DT Haloti Ngata and FS Ed Reed. New to the top of the position lists this year include SS Bernard Pollard, CB Cary Williams and KR Jacoby Jones.
Yes, Cary Williams. The guy many Ravens fans get so frustrated by the way he plays 10-15 yards off the line of scrimmage and while he leads the team and is fourth in the league in interceptions, most likely due to also leading the league in completed passes against him.
Voting continues through December 17th, at NFL.com/ProBowl. Go vote for your favorite players, which of course should also not coincidentally be your favorite, or even your not-so-favorite (Cary Williams) Ravens. Besides, it really shouldn't make a difference as the Ravens should be busy preparing for the Super Bowl and will be unable to make the trip to the islands for the Pro Bowl anyway!
