Pro Bowl balloting gets underway

Chris Clemons

Defensive end Chris Clemons brings down Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers for a sack. Clemons registered 4.0 sacks in the first half and the Seahawks rallied to a 14-12 victory on Monday Night Football in Week 3 at CenturyLink Field.

Who deserves Pro Bowl recognition for the Seahawks?

Defensive end Chris Clemons, who is tied for second in the NFC with seven sacks? Free safety Earl Thomas, who was voted the starter on the NFC squad last season? Marshawn Lynch, who is second in the conference in rushing? The cornerback tandem of Brandon Browner and Richard Sherman, as Browner was a first alternate last year who was added to the squad as an injury replacement and Sherman is tied for fourth in the NFL with three interceptions? Center Max Unger, who anchors the line that opens the holes for Lynch? Fullback Michael Robinson and strong safety Kam Chancellor, also first alternates last season who were added to the squad? Nose tackle Brandon Mebane, who’s in the middle of everything for the No. 3-ranked defense and run defense in the NFC? Punter Jon Ryan, who is second in the NFC in average (50.4) and fifth in net average (41.4)?
