The Packers need your help!

Friday, December 17th marks the final day for fans to vote their favorite players to the 2005 NFL Pro Bowl in Honolulu, Hawaii.

The AFC and NFC All-Star squads are made up of the consensus votes of fans, players and coaches. Each group's vote counts one-third towards determining the 43-man rosters that represent the American Football Conference and National Football Conference in the Pro Bowl. NFL players and coaches will cast their votes on December 20-21.

The NFL is the only sports league that combines voting by fans, coaches and players to determine its all-star teams. It was the first professional sports league to offer online all-star voting in 1995.

Online voting will end this Friday, December 17th at 11 a.m. CT.

Below is a list of players expected to challenge for their first trip to Honolulu:

Nick Barnett:

Coming off a stellar rookie campaign when he led the team in tackles, linebacker Nick Barnett ranks among the NFC leaders with 131 tackles (95 solo) and three sacks.

Robert Ferguson:

Do-everything starting receiver Robert Ferguson, also a strength on special teams, ranks second among NFC kick returners (26.4-yard average).

Al Harris:

The elder statesman of a young group of cornerbacks, Al Harris has broken up 24 passes, 10 better than his previous career best. With three games left, Harris has a strong shot at breaking Doug Evans' 1995 team record, 27.

William Henderson:

The point man for six 1,000-yard rushers throughout his 10 seasons with the Green Bay Packers, fullback William Henderson would break Howard Griffith's NFL record with another such season in 2004. Ahman Green is just 8 yards away from a 1,000-yard season.

Henderson has also caught 30 passes for 183 yards (6.1 avg.) this season and stands at No. 2 on the Packers' all-time list among backs behind Green.

Ryan Longwell:

The Packers owe three of their eight wins to Ryan Longwell field goals. The kicker hasn't missed an extra point in three years (38 this season). He's hit 44 in a row from 40 yards or less.

Mike Wahle:

Guard Mike Wahle, a pillar in the team's signature running game and strong pass protection the last two years, is having one of his best seasons. He's played in 94 straight games and started the last 61 in a row.

Javon Walker:

In just his third season, Javon Walker has become one of the NFL's top downfield threats.

Through 13 games, Walker is among the NFC leaders in receptions (70), receiving yards (1,058), TD catches (10) and average per catch (15.1).
