2012 NFL Pro Bowl Ballot Open, Jared Allen Should Be A Lock For Vikings

As of Tuesday, fans are able to head on over to the 2012 Pro Bowl Ballot and vote for the players they want in, you guessed it, the Pro Bowl. For the Minnesota Vikings, the Pro Bowl has always been a place to flaunt their talent, with multiple entries in recent years. Now, sitting at 1-6 on the season, the potential nominees are few and far between. I'm sure fans will vote for their favorite Vikings players regardless, but fan voting only comprises one part of the process to see who ultimately makes it.


That being said, a general mainstay at the Pro Bowl should remain as such: Jared Allen. Overshadowed by Minnesota's bad season, Allen has 11.5 sacks on the season through seven games. The man is out there on every play trying to set up a war crime on opposing team's quarterbacks and he most definitely deserves your vote - so head over and give it to him.
