The people who love the Dolphins are having a pretty good year, too. At least if you judge by the recent totals in fan voting for this year's NFL Pro Bowl. Four, that's right, FOUR Miami Dolphins are in first place in their respective positions in on-line fan balloting. This compared to zero, that's right, ZERO this time last year.
All vote totals are current as of this week:
Leading AFC running backs is Ronnie Brown, who has received 393,265 votes.
Joey Porter has received 240,238 votes.
And kicker Dan Carpenter, who leads the team in scoring with 77 points, has 143,174 votes.
These numbers are pretty impressive, until you learn that the Washington Redskins have 21 players atop the NFC voting, including Shawn Springs, who has missed more than half the season.
If you're a Dolphins fan too, and you'd like to tell the NFL how much your favorite players don't suck, vote for them here.
