Russell Wilson leads all NFC quarterbacks in Pro Bowl voting

NFL: Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Some of you still care about the NFL Pro Bowl, and some of you probably cast your votes for which players should be selected to the 2020 All-Star game. Well on that note, here’s some early Pro Bowl voting news!

The leading vote-getter is unsurprisingly Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson, who’s a legitimate MVP candidate and the most popular player in the NFL at the moment. Second place belongs to Patrick Mahomes of the Kansas City Chiefs, the league’s reigning MVP. In third and leading all NFC quarterbacks? Russell Carrington Wilson.

Wilson is not the only Seahawk leading at least the NFC in votes. Bobby Wagner is atop the NFC field for the inside linebacker position, while Tyler Lockett is quite ridiculously leading the NFC as a return specialist. Lockett has just 66 punt return yards on 13 returns, with a long of 20. He’s averaging only 20 yards per kick return, which is also bad. That Lockett is still even returning kicks when he’s the Seahawks’ #1 wide receiver and has shown negative value as a return man this year is perplexing in itself.

Anyway, Pro Bowl voting ends on December 12th. You have three weeks to get Poona Ford into the Pro Bowl or else this whole season is a failure.
