Justin Houston Gets Late Hawaii Ticket

The team that was able to win only two games last season will now have three times that many players in this Sunday’s Pro Bowl. On Tuesday OLB Justin Houston was named as an injury replacement for Denver LB Von Miller.

Houston’s trip to Honolulu gives the Chiefs six players in the game. Already in Hawaii for the game were SS Eric Berry, RB Jamaal Charles, P Dustin Colquitt, OLB Tamba Hali and ILB Derrick Johnson. That’s the most Chiefs players in the all-star game since 2005 when a half-dozen went for the all-star ga me.

The second-year player out of the University of Georgia, Houston started all 16 games at left outside linebacker. He led the team with 10.0 sacks (-69.0 yards) and finished third with 66 total tackles (53 solo). The 2011 third-round draft choice also forced a fumble, recovered another and had his first interception.

    Good for him. I think he played really well this year. I just think it’s slightly crazy for a 2-14 team to have that many players in the pro-bowl. Hopefully, that’s something positive that Andy can take into 2013 and build upon.

    Good Lord! How is it we have six people heading to the Pro Bowl, played in the worst division in Football and finished with 2 wins. How bad were our coaches? Is this the record for most players selected to a team who earned the number one overall pick? What about the record for having 2 OLB’s on the same team with the fewest sacks? Gotta be some record somewhere.

    Do not get all that wrapped up in the Pro Bowl. A nice award for those selected but when you have 2 wins, does it really matter all that much?

    The game will be unwatchable after 5 mins. No one is going to hit someone or make some other “all pro” look bad.

    Great news! Houston deserves this.
    To answer your question Kenny, this offensive staff was possibly the worst ever put together. I know Daboll is the single worst OC I have ever seen.
    I hope Zorn gets a job…. OUT OF FOOTBALL.

    I heard several times to media people saying that the Chiefs defense wasn’t that of a 2-14 team. So basically our offense and specially the passing offense was for a minus 8 wins of a 10-6 team?
