2012 NFC Pro Bowl Fan Voting Results: Seven Cowboys Recognized

The final results of fan balloting for the 2012 Pro Bowl were announced by the NFL yesterday, and only one Cowboys player is the top vote getter at his position in the 2012 NFC Pro Bowl fan voting, and that's DeMarcus Ware.

With Jason Witten, rookie Dan Bailey and special teams ace Danny McCray, three other Cowboys rank third at their respective positions. In total, seven Cowboys rank in the top-five of their respective positions in the NFC Pro Bowl vote. In addition to Ware, Witten, Bailey and McCray, Gerald Sensabaugh, Mat McBriar and Tony Fiammetta have been voted into the top five of their respective positions by the fan vote.

Aaron Rodgers is the top vote-getter for the 2012 Pro Bowl with 1,581,982 votes in a year featuring a record 100.64 million votes cast by fans. Rodgers leads an NFC selection that's completely and utterly dominated by the Packers, who have 21 players within the top five at the 18 available positions. The Packers are followed by the 49ers with 15 players, the Bears with ten and the Saints with nine. Philly has five, the Giants four and Washington two.

After the break we take a more detailed look at this year's Pro Bowl vote.

The AFC and NFC Pro Bowl teams are selected based the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches, each of which will count one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters for the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches started casting their votes yesterday, and final Pro Bowl teams will be announced December 27.

Some Cowboys players are notable absentees in the fan voting, like Tony Romo, Sean Lee, Jay Ratliff, Tyron Smith or perhaps one of the receivers. To get in, they'll need the votes of the players and coaches.
