Chiefs Get Pro Bowl Shutout

For the first time in 31 seasons, the Chiefs do not have a player on the AFC squad for the Pro Bowl.

Now, with various injuries to those players announced Tuesday evening, there’s always a chance a member of the Chiefs can be added as an injury replacement.

But right now there will be no arrowhead covered helmet at the game for the first time since the 1978 season.

The Chiefs and Cincinnati Bengals were the only teams in the AFC that did not land at least one player on the AFC all-star squad. Over in the NFC, Atlanta, Seattle, Detroit and Tampa Bay were shutout. That’s right, former Chiefs TE Tony Gonzalez was not named to the NFC squad, as Vernon Davis of San Francisco and Jason Witten of Dallas were the picks at tight end.

DE Jared Allen was the only former member of the Chiefs to make the game, as he was selected a starter at defensive end for the NFC.

Indianapolis placed six players on the squad, while Denver, Baltimore  and San Diego have five each.

The Vikings put eight players on the NFC team, includig 40-year old quarterback Brett Favre. Philadelphia and Dallas both had six players earn trips to the game on Sunday, January 31st at Dolphin Stadium in south Florida.

    A proud moment for “patience and the process” guys. Face it, not a lot left on the Chiefs in 09.

    I’m just glad the Chiefs didn’t get Shut-Out at any of this years games! Oh wait, knock on wood, we still got the Broncos to go.

    This is a sad day, really. No Chiefs worthy of the Pro Bowl?

    As bad as it seems, and is…I agree with it.

    There are simply no players on this team that are good enough to be considered the best of the best.

    Except for maybe Succop, I think that the chiefs need to bring in a good x-CB as a coach for Flowers, Carr & Page next year, since Herm left the secondary doesn’t look as good as they did last year. Flowers and Carr could probowlers someday.

    I could see Flowers in the Pro Bowl some day along with Charles from the current roster. Carr along with Albert took a big step backwards in his second season.

    Hey it’s not like we haven’t been drafting in the top of the draft the last few years. Your telling me that even a blind hog can’t find a acorn ????Have we really falling this far ……I had felt we had but the NFL says it’s true. Not one 1st rd pick from the last 4yrs is worthy of a probowl nod . If I had spent millions of dollars in salary with no more wins/probowl players than what this team has shown. Heads have/would roll & fans could kiss my … if they blame me ( Hunts ) for this mess.Why have a GM/Coaches/scouts if they can’t at least find one player worthy of a probowl. I think I could at least pick one . PnS

    Damn! Not a one. I was holding a glimmer of hope out for Mr. Irellevent. Succop. He’s good. I too can see Flowers, Carr and Page there next year. Hopefully Hali too. Damnit! I hope Jamal plays so well he’s there because his play won’t let him be unappreciated outside of KC. Just like Riggs and Murtaugh in the Lethal Weapon movies we’ll just have to “will” them during the games to a win. Sure it’s fantasy. But hell, we’re trying everything else!! Lining the dog bed with cast off cursed red and gold shirts isn’t helping, much…Kick some donkey butt Sunday and get a win so I can call my kin in the high country with thumbs firmly planted in the ears and just go Phhhhhhhhttttttttt!!!!!!! Hee, haw, hee, haw! Priceless….

    Best idea I have heard about the Chiefs this season. We need to “will” them to win. I can honestly say, it is about the only way for this team to improve. Mental Empathy, is the only way to save this bunch.

    Hey, Anon., about the blameless Hunts. How many millions are they under the salary cap? How many last year? It might be hard for Clark to tell the fans to kiss his _____ with the huge wallet padding his rear.
