Palmer leads Cards’ final Pro Bowl list

Posted by Darren Urban on December 17, 2015 – 11:45 am

Quarterback Carson Palmer was the top vote-getter for the Cardinals now that the public part of Pro Bowl voting has ended. Palmer got the fourth most votes of any player — 514,967, to be specific — and was also fourth overall in the NFL, since QBs all finished ahead of him (Brady, Newton, Dalton).

Free safety Tyrann Mathieu dropped a spot to third at his position, but Frostee Rucker made a late surge to get into the top 10. In all, 11 Cardinals were ranked in the top 10 in votes at their respective positions. Players and coaches vote later this week league-wide to come up with the final Pro Bowl tallies/roster, and they get announced Dec. 22.

The full Cardinals’ list:

— QB Carson Palmer fourth

— RB Chris Johnson eighth

— WR Larry Fitzgerald fourth (with an impressive 410,095 votes)

— G Mike Iupati fifth

— DT Calais Campbell fifth, Frostee Rucker seventh

— CB Patrick Peterson fifth

— SS Rashad Johnson seventh, Deone Bucannon 10th

— FS Tyrann Mathieu third

— Special teams Justin Bethel fourth

    Too bad none of them are playing in the pro-bowl. Wait, not too bad, err, I mean too good?

    Fan vote only counts for one third of the process. Players and coaches have their votes coming. And we make it to the Super Bowl none of this will matter, Go Cards!

    In the playoffs anything can happen. Remember the Cardinals team that made it to the Super Bowl a few years ago with a 9-7 regular season record. All it takes is one loss and you’re out. I hope they make it all the way this year, but one can’t count on it. A few years ago, the system had the Oakland Raiders as the #1 team in the NFL. They did make it to the Super Bowl where they were humiliated by Tampa.

    PP, fifth? This seems typical of people not know what they’re talking about. Fan voting favors the big market players. Hopefully, NFL players should know better.

    Darren –

    Not related to this. I watched some of the game last night and, good lord, those uniforms for both teams were horrible. This whole color-rush thing…..ugh. I am GLAD the Cards-Vikings stuck with their regular uniforms last Thursday night. But how does that go – do the teams get to decide if they want to do the color-rush thing, or is this an NFL decision? And how / why were the Cardinals spared from it last week?

    Those yellow uniforms the Rams wore last night….God awful! They should have gone with the blue instead, would have matched the helmets better. I hope this color-rush thing is one and done. Totally un-necessary. Serves no purpose, other than creating a whole new product line of merchandise for the NFL. And good thing, too, because I’m sure the holidays are hitting those owners really hard this year….

    This really makes no difference to the fans, I hope to see nary a Cardinal set foot on the field during the Pro Bowl, prefer to know that they will be too busy in team meetings.
