New England Patriots fans recently have spent a lot of time on NFL.com.
There are 10 Patriots among the Pro Bowl leading vote-getters by position. Carolinians apparently have even more time on their hands. Thirteen Panthers players are listed in the leading vote-getters by position.
Patriots quarterback Tom Brady leads all players with 342,471 votes. Tight end Rob Gronkowski, offensive tackle Sebastian Vollmer, center David Andrews, kicker Stephen Gostkowski, return specialist Danny Amendola, defensive end Chandler Jones, linebacker Jamie Collins, punter Ryan Allen and special-teamer Matthew Slater also are among the leading vote-getters.
Patriots fans are doing a nice job stuffing the ballot, but safety Devin McCourty and linebacker Dont’a Hightower — perhaps the Patriots’ best two defenders — deserve some more love.
