Kansas City Chiefs Send Jamaal Charles and SEVEN Others to the Pro Bowl


Jamaal Charles and seven other Chiefs will make up the Pro Bowl in January. Charles received the most votes of any non-quarterback in the NFL and finished third overall in Pro Bowl voting. This is the third career Pro Bowl selection for Charles.

It has been an insane season for Charles that could turn historic if he can rack up at least 20 yards from scrimmage and one touchdown this weekend in San Diego. If he does that then he will become just the tenth player in NFL history to have at least 2,000 yards from scrimmage and 20 total touchdowns in a single season. Former Chiefs great Priest Holmes accomplished that feat twice, Adrian Peterson has never done it.

Charles won’t be alone in Hawaii. Branden Albert, Dontari Poe, Tamba Hali, Justin Houston, Brandon Flowers, Eric Berry, and Dexter McCluster. Stunningly Dustin Colquitt and Derrick Johnson, both among the most deserving player in the NFL, let alone the Chiefs, were snubbed from the Pro Bowl. How one picks five Chiefs defenders to go to the Pro Bowl and doesn’t put Derrick Johnson on that list is unthinkable.

Changes have been made to the Pro Bowl format to make things a little bit more interesting. This year voters were asked to select the best players at each position regardless of the conference the player plays in. Individuals selected to the Pro Bowl will then be put into a pool where team captains Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders will select teams in a sort of Fantasy Football type format. That draft alone will be must-see television.

    We will get to watch that draft?

    Derrick Johnson way way way before Brandon “I get toasted” Flowers!

    • Brian Martasin

      No doubt. Flowers made it on his reputation rather then his play on the field. He definitely looks like he’s lost a step.

  • Steve Krenek

    Eric Berry was a good choice, but Flowers hadnt impressed me, torched way to many times

  • chiefridgy

    No Derrick Johnson?

  • LGB

    Earlier today fansided said Colquitt was leading the outer vote with 178000 almost 70000 more than the next closest punter. .. and Johnson deserves it more than flowers

    • Joel Wagler

      Of all the guys who made it, how it the heck the DJ and Colquitt not make this teams. Crazy stuff.

  • 2dogs

    Albert’s stock went up a little more meaning he’s less likely to be a Chief next year.

    • Roc

      That’s fine, I honestly think Donald Stephenson stepped up enough this season to prove he’s a capable starter
