    If I was going to go out and promote somebody deserving of the Pro Bowl (even though it is a joke) it would be Winfield.
    Good point. He is just as deserving.

    I guess there are a'lot of players in the NFL who would deserve their name on a site like that.

    I picked Pat mostly because the Olin Kruetz ordeal..

    And of course because he deserved it.
    He owned Kruetz.
    I hate Olin.

    Re: Let's do it for Pat!

    Good to see most like the idea.

    The whole idea behind this isn't so much to get him in the pro bowl. Sure that is the ultimate goal, but more than anything it is to show support for one of our players and to slap Olin in the face.

    We all know it probaly won't work, but wouldn't it be cool if 75% or more of the fan vote goes to Pat?

    Either way, nothing negative can really come out of this. If anything, it will boost Pats morale and motivate him to keep playing good.

    Olin will probaly b**ch like a little girl (especially if Pat gets in) but wouldn't it be cool to be a part of that?

    if you really want to build a site, i'll host it.

    I have 3 active webservers and do web hosting. pm m the domain name you want and i'll get it organized.

    I have liked pat long before we signed him, and even more since he doned the purple and gold.

    Pat Williams deserves a trip to the pro bowl, at least once.

    After seeing Olin Kreutz being a d**k and starting that campaign last year to keep Pat out of the pro bowl, I was actually kind of pissed...

    Then I seen this internet phenomina for NHL player Rory Fitzpatrick and his fans voting campaign.

    It got me thinking. Why can't we do this for Pat?

    We should get a website (next season of course) and start an early campaign to try and get people to vote for him. Make it clear that he is one of the best in the leauge and how he is unoticed.

    I think it would be positive for the vikings, purple pride, and I thik it would also be the right thing to do.

    What do you guys think?
    The fan vote is only 1/3rd of the voting in the NFL's calculation for the Pro Bowl, unlike hockey and baseball, which is purely a popularity contest for the starters.
    The NFL also has coaches and players vote.
    So the impact of this is not as meaningful as it is for Fitzpatrick.

    The NFL has a website for voting for the Pro Bowl.
    How many times did you vote for Pat Williams?
    I voted 5 or 6 times, but I could have voted more, for sure.

    Thanks to Josdin for the awesome sig!

    Pat will go when the Vikes do better than 6/10.
    That means that the D line has to develop a pass rush.
    Yeah they can stop the run but they can't stop anyone from moving the ball down the field.
    They are too one dimensional in defense to be looked at with favor IMO.
    I completly disagree, the probowl is based on the indivuals play not the team. or else you wouldnt see any any of those other slobs over there in Hawaii. Pat, I thought was a shoe in. Mabe the so called experts are right mabe the probowl voting is a popularity contest
