Jets Pro Bowl Selections 2008-09
Fans can vote now to select players for the 2009 NFL Pro Bowl presented by State Farm, the NFL's annual all-star game. Voting is available on NFL.com/probowl and on Web-enabled mobile phones by going to NFL.com.
Balloting for the Pro Bowl will conclude at 12 noon EST on Tuesday, Dec. 9. The teams will be announced at 4 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 16, on a special NFL Total Access Pro Bowl Selection Show on NFL Network. The Pro Bowl will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii, on Feb. 8 and televised by NBC.
Fans who vote for Pro Bowl players will then be able to enter for a chance to win a trip to Hawaii to attend the game in the official Pro Bowl Sweepstakes presented by State Farm. The grand prize includes an all-expenses-paid, five-day, four-night trip for the winner and one guest to the Pro Bowl.
In addition to air transportation, ground transportation, hotel accommodations and two game tickets, the winner and guest will receive two tickets to the Pro Bowl Tailgate Party, an exclusive State Farm "I'm There" opportunity, and will meet Howie Long, eight-time Pro Bowl selection and Pro Football Hall of Fame member. There is no purchase necessary to enter or win. Fans can see NFL.com for details and official rules.
The AFC and NFC all-star squads are based on the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts one-third toward determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Conference and National Conference in the game. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on Dec. 11-12.
The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams and was the first professional sports league, in 1995, to offer online all-star voting.
Quarterback Brett Favre, now with the Jets, QBs Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Tony Romo, and WR Randy Moss were the top five vote-getters last year.
