As of right now, Andre Johnson leads AFC WR's in balloting, about 8,000 votes ahead of our very own All-Star Reggie Wayne. Johnson also beats the NFL's leading receiver Randy Moss. Here are the stats for all three:
Reggie Wayne - 79 Rec - 987 Yds - 12.5 Avg - 9 Td's
Andre Johnson - 63 Rec - 945 Yds - 15.0 Avg - 5 Td's
Randy Moss - 66 Rec - 992 Yds - 15.0 Avg - 8 Td's
I understand that the pro-bowl is pretty much a popularity contest and does not always represent the best in the league, But how does Johnson beat out both Wayne and Moss? Is it because he was on the cover of the ESPN Magazine? - I wouldn't be surprised.
However I do want it to be clear that I respect Andre Johnson to the fullest, he is an amazing athlete, he plays hard and never gives up for a team that has been average since it was introduced to the league, he does not cause drama in the locker room, he plays the game the way it should be played, Period.
I suppose it just bothers me that Reggie Wayne is not the leading vote ummmm...receiver? This should be his best season statistically and this years performance should be noticed for a man who's had such an incredible career.
In other Pro Bowl news, it looks like Dallas Clark is finally going to Hawaii !!!! Sorry, South Florida !!!!! Clark leads all TE's with 462,638 votes, trumping the next closest TE Tony Gonzalez who has 281,567 votes. YAYYYY
QUICK COLTS FACT: Joseph Addai (10 TD's) trails only Little Wrecking Ball (Maurice Jones-Drew - 13 TD's), Purple Jesus (Adrian Peterson 12 TD's), and Pothead (Ricky Williams - 11 TD's) In total touchdowns scored. Go Addai!!!! Go Colts!!!!!
