2011 NFL Pro Bowl: Steven Jackson leads the Rams in voting

New, comments

On Tuesday, Dec. 28, the NFL will announce the 2011 NFL Pro Bowl rosters. Will the St. Louis Rams be represented or will they once again get left off the list, snubbed for the NFL's all-star game that nobody watches anyway?

In terms of total votes, RB Steven Jackson leads the Rams with 359,704. That's not even half of the votes that Adrian Peterson received as the running back with the most votes. QB Sam Bradford was the second leading rookie for votes, with 305,000+, second to Ndamukong Suh. I guess actually getting your team some wins only counts for a little, huh?

So, in order for any member of the St. Louis Rams to make the roster, they'll be counting on the spots not awarded by fan vote. 

There are a number of Rams players who have a case this year, but the one I'd really like to see on the list is P Donnie Jones. Sort of a reward for getting overshadowed all those years when the Rams so desperately needed his leg to prevent a complete blow out at the hands of opponents.
