Bucs barely register in Pro Bowl fan balloting



Fan balloting is only part of the process that sends the NFL's best players to the Pro Bowl in Hawaii, and that's a good thing for the Bucs, who have only two players ranking in even the top 10 at their position in the fan voting.

Linebacker Lavonte David, certainly having a Pro Bowl season with a team-high five interceptions along with six sacks, is just sixth in the voting for outside linebackers, with 137,593 votes. Cornerback Darrelle Revis, a Pro Bowl player in his first year with the Bucs, is just 10th among cornerbacks with 152,219 votes, less than half the total for position leader Richard Sherman of Seattle.

Other deserving Bucs aren't even in the top 10 at all -- defensive tackle Gerald McCoy, for instance, doesn't make the cut for fans at his position. The Bucs aren't the only team whose fans haven't been stuffing the online ballots -- the Bengals, Dolphins, Steelers and Titans also have only two players in the top 10 for their position; the Giants and Falcons have only one, and the Jaguars don't have any.
