The initial Pro Bowl voting totals are out — voting runs through Dec. 17 — and three Cards appear in the top five at their positions in the NFC.
Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald is fifth among NFC wideouts, with 105,743 votes. He trails the Giants’ Victor Cruz (257,016), the Bears’ Brandon Marshall (153,574), the Vikings’ Percy Harvin (144,978) and the Lions’ Calvin Johnson (118,454). That’s going to be a tough lineup to crack, especially if Fitz can’t make a strong second half statistical push.
Inside linebacker Daryl Washington (69,757) is second, trailing the 49ers’ Patrick Willis (91,609) and with only a slight lead on the 49ers’ NaVorro Bowman (67,024).
Meanwhile, Patrick Peterson is fourth among NFC cornerbacks (57,537 votes), trailing the Bears’ Tim Jennings (116,347), the Bears’ Charles Tillman (80,604) and the Rams’ Cortland Finnegan (73,201).
