Rodgers tops Brees easily, Megatron and Allen lead All-Pro voting
There’s been some talk this week that Drew Brees may have caught Aaron Rodgers in the Most Valuable Player race, but the voting on the Associated Press All-Pro team makes it clear that most members of the media view Rodgers as the superior player.
The full All-Pro votes were released today, and Rodgers was the overwhelming choice at quarterback, with 47.5 votes. Brees got the other 2.5 votes from the 50-member media panel.
There were no unanimous choices at any position, but two players came close: Lions receiver Calvin Johnson and Vikings defensive end Jared Allen were the highest vote getters at any position, with 49 votes apiece.
