GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Pro Bowl voting is over for fans, and the Packers are well represented in the final tallies.
Six Packers won the fan-vote at their position in the NFC: Quarterback Aaron Rodgers (777,827 votes), outside linebacker Clay Matthews (343,514), fullback John Kuhn (181,820), strong safety Charles Woodson (117,230), center Jeff Saturday (312,013) and kick returner Randall Cobb (131,626).
Rodgers was the fifth-highest vote-getter overall, behind quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Tom Brady, as well as running backs Arian Foster and Adrian Peterson.
These six Packers players won't necessarily be the starters in the Pro Bowl game on Jan. 27, 2013, because the teams are chosen based on a combination of votes from fans, players and coaches. Of course, if the Packers are in the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, none of them will be participating in the Pro Bowl anyway.
The announcement for which players made it onto the 2013 Pro Bowl teams will be unveiled on Dec. 26 on the NFL Network.

These days, even high-profile NFL quarterbacks are doing the act known as "photobombing" to score some instant Internet fame.
Apparently, there is now a Tumblr website called "Aaron Rodgers Photobombs" which features last year's NFL MVP posing in team photos.
Below is just some that they collected:

When Aaron Rodgers was drafted in 2005, it was 23 spots behind the No. 1 pick, Alex Smith, who was picked by Rodgers’ hometown 49ers.
Instead of getting a chance to start and being recognized for his ability, Rodgers took the clipboard behind Brett Favre, while Smith was given the run of the San Francisco offense in his first season.
Within a few years, though, the storylines changed...
GREEN BAY, Wis. -- When the Packers cruised through the regular season last year, earned the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs and had a bye in the first round, the end result was clearly not what the team wanted.
But that experience of getting blown out by the New York Giants in the postseason divisional round has not changed the way coach Mike McCarthy views a first-round bye.
Packers linebacker Clay Matthews has been known for his "predator" muscle-flexing sack celebration for years, but apparently he spent his down time rehabbing an injured hamstring coming up with something new and, well, seemingly better suited for Chippendales than Soldier Field.
After taking down Chicago's Jay Cutler on Sunday for his first sack since returning from...
I'm glad to be joined for this week's Q&A by Aaron Nagler. Aaron is the co-founder of the fine Packers blog CheeseheadTV and also writes for Bleacher Report. You can also follow his comments on the Packers, the NFL, and everything else under the sun on Twitter.
Total Titans: Aaron Rodgers' level of play last year was, I think, probably the greatest I've ever...
We’ve got less than a month left in the FanDuel season (no games past the Divisional Round of the playoffs), which means you’re running out of chances to bump up how much money you cash out at the end of the NFL season (since you’re not silly enough to actually play in NBA games, right?). Since the only complaints I saw last week were about my spelling and identification of...
WMFL Staff Consensus Rankings – Week 16
At the quarterback position both Zach and Rizzla see Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady as the top two options with Tony Romo also being included as a QB1 due to his match-up with a the Saints and their porous secondary.
At the running back position both of our writers believe that KnowShown Moreno is a RB1 this week against the Browns in a matchup...
Coach Mike McCarthy isn't about to disregard the importance of the first-round bye simply because his Green Bay Packers were bounced out of last season's NFC playoffs without a victory.
The only difference in his team's pursuit of that goal this season is the starters likely won't be receiving any rest over the final weeks this time around.
Green Bay can help its...
