Votes Coming in for Clay, Chuck, and Chad

I couldn't find a photo that included all three of Charles Woodson, Clay Matthews, and Chad Clifton, so this will have to do. The reason for the photo is that the three of them are in deserving company, as each of them lead the NFC in Pro Bowl voting at their respective positions. The fact that Woodson and Matthews lead in voting shouldn't surprise anyone, the former is the reigning NFL Defensive Player of the Year while the latter is the front runner to win the award in 2010. The Chad Clifton selection would be a little shocking if it stood, if only because I can't remember the last time that a Packers offensive lineman made the Pro Bowl, much less started in one (okay I looked something up for once. Marco Rivera made it in 2004. Gale Gillingham was the last offensive linemen to start the game though, way back in 1969).

Elsewhere in Pro Bowl voting, Quarterback Aaron Rodgers may be behind Michael Vick in the NFC, but he does still come in 5th overall in fan voting.

It's not all good news though for the members of the Packers' elite. Woodson and Clifton will both show up on the injury report this week, as it was found on Monday that Clifton actually suffered a concussion against the 49ers, and then on Wednesday Charles Woodson left practice early with a sprained ankle. Both players are expected to be ready by Sunday, however.

Two Packers that definitely won't be active are Korey Hall with a knee injury, and the calf injury that bothered Cullen Jenkins on Sunday will keep him out a couple of weeks.

greg jennings better get some love to.

IMO Pack should have Woodson, Clay, A Rodge and Jennings in the pro bowl. If Clifton or others get in (I'd think Sitton would be a better choice on the line), sweet, but gotta have those four. Cullen Jenkins has been a beast as well.
