Fan voting has concluded for the Pro Bowl, and citizens of Broncos Country have made their voices heard.
Brandon Marshall ranks No. 1 in vote getters for AFC wide receivers, and Champ Bailey also ranks No. 1 in the AFC at cornerback.
Marshall received 416,791 votes, good for the third-highest leading total in the AFC, while Bailey got 283,155.
The results announced today are just the top overall vote getters in the AFC and NFC as well as the top vote getters for each position. In other words, we don’t know where other Broncos rank in the big scheme of things — this doesn’t mean that Bailey and Marshall are the only two Broncos with a shot at making the trip to Hawaii.
Also, players and coaches have yet to cast their votes for the Pro Bowl, which will be played on February 8, 2009.
The full AFC and NFC Pro Bowl teams will be announced next Tuesday, December 16.
