Fitzgerald seventh in Pro Bowl voting
Arizona's Larry Fitzgerald ranks seventh among NFL players in fan-based Pro Bowl balloting since the league began recording online votes Oct. 13.
Fan balloting, which continues here through Dec. 9, is one part of the process. Players and coaches also vote.
A quick look at where other NFC West players rank at their positions:
Walter Jones, LT, Seahawks: not among the top five tackles in the NFC. Chris Samuels ranks first with 198,906 votes. Flozell Adams is second at 103,178, followed more closely by David Diehl, Kareem McKenzie and Stephon Heyer.
Orlando Pace, LT, Rams: not among the top five tackles.
Darnell Dockett, DT, Cardinals: not among the top five at the position. As more evidence that Redskins' fans take their voting seriously, Cornelius Griffin and Kedric Golston are the top vote-getters. Kevin Williams and Pat Williams are third and fourth, followed by Fred Robbins.
Julian Peterson, LB, Seahawks: not among the top five at outside linebacker. Demarcus Ware is first, followed by Jason Taylor, Marcus Washington, Rocky McIntosh and A.J. Hawk. Three Redskins in the top five. Go figure.
Patrick Willis, LB, 49ers: fourth among inside linebackers with 96,583 votes. London Fletcher leads with 202,969 votes, followed by Brian Urlacher at 156,288 and Antonio Pierce (98,265). Zach Thomas is fifth with 64,080.
Karlos Dansby, LB, Cardinals: not among the top five at inside linebacker, but I think he deserves strong consideration.
Lofa Tatupu, LB, Seahawks: not among the top five at inside linebacker.
Nate Clements, CB, 49ers: not among the top five at cornerback.
Adrian Wilson, SS, Cardinals: second among strong safeties with 53,622 votes. The Redskins' Chris Horton leads the way with 164,271. Darren Sharper is third, trailing Wilson by about 2,000 votes. Atari Bigby and James Butler both have more than 45,000.
Donnie Jones, P, Rams: not among the top five punters. Ryan Plackemeier, Jeff Feagles, Derrick Frost, Brad Maynard and Saverio Rocca comprise the top five. Is Plackemeier enjoying a great season? No, but he plays for the Redskins.
Andy Lee, P, 49ers: not among the top five punters.
Allen Rossum, return specialist, 49ers: not among the top five. Rock Cartwright, Devin Hester, Reggie Bush, Felix Jones and DeSean Jackson comprise the top five. Yes, Cartwright plays for the Redskins.
