Call It: Cam Newton a Pro Bowler?

By Pat Yasinskas
ESPN.com

Carolina coach Ron Rivera said recently that rookie quarterback Cam Newton is worthy of a Pro Bowl berth.

A lot of fans seem to agree. As of Wednesday, Newton was third in the fan voting behind Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees in the NFC. Three quarterbacks are selected for the all-star game. Fan voting comes to an end next week and counts for one-third of the total vote.

After that, coaches and players around the league will vote and we’ll find out Dec. 27 if Newton makes the Pro Bowl.

Newton already has rushed for more touchdowns in a season than any quarterback in history. He also is closing in on Peyton Manning's rookie record for passing yards. But Newton also has made some rookie mistakes and he’s on a losing team.

Should he make the Pro Bowl?
