Favre leads fan vote for Pro Bowl

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- The fans have spoken, and they say Brett Favre should go to the Pro Bowl.

The NFL announced Thursday that Favre led fan voting for the NFL's annual all-star game with 1,140,863 votes -- more than New England quarterback Tom Brady or Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning. Packers cornerbacks Al Harris and Charles Woodson and linebacker A.J. Hawk ranked among the fans' top 10 defensive players.

Fan votes, which were collected through the NFL's Web site and through Sprint wireless phones, counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent each conference in the February 10th game in Honolulu, Hawaii.

Players and coaches also will vote for Pro Bowl representatives this week, and the teams will be announced next Tuesday.
