Lions’ fans – don’t miss out on your opportunity to vote your favorite Detroit Lions into the 2011 Pro Bowl.
Currently, rookie Ndamukong Suh is the leading vote getter amongst NFC defensive tackles while Calvin Johnson is third amongst NFC wide receivers.
For the Lions, Suh would mark the first rookie to make the Pro Bowl since Barry Sanders in 1990 and the first defensive rookie to make the Pro Bowl since Al “Bubba” Baker in 1979.
Suh is currently first amongst all defensive tackles and all rookies with 8.0 sacks. In 13 games as a rookie, he has also registered 52 tackles, one interception and one fumble return for a touchdown.
In his fourth season, Johnson is putting together numbers that rival those he put up in 2008 when he finished with 1,331 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns.
With three games remaining, Johnson has an NFC-high 12 touchdown receptions and is tied for fourth among all players in the NFL in total touchdowns. He is also fifth in the NFC with 916 receiving yards.
If elected, this would be Johnson’s first-career trip to the Pro Bowl.
