Who ever is hot weeks 8-10 is who gets the votes. After the initial voting a lot less voting takes place, so anyone like Dez Bryant will lose out to a guy like Wes Welker. The first 8 weeks of the year everyone vied Welker as top notch, but now he's become nothing special at all, looks old and worn out. Dez Bryant on the other hand is an exciting player who came on later in the year AFTER the voters were hot and heavy into voting. So guys like that miss out. You can't vote til week 8 so if you have a good weeks 1-9 you're going to the Pro Bowl.
