Football fans in Kansas City still have high hopes the Chiefs can make the postseason after a win on Sunday in Chicago. Another win gives fans a reason to believe why certain players on the team deserve a Pro Bowl appearance this season.
Last year, Chiefs fans were ecstatic to learn three players were voted into the Pro Bowl after sending zero the season before. Eventually, the total number grew to six as some of the Pittsburgh Steelers players chosen couldn't play since they had to prepare for the Super Bowl.
Last year, Jamaal Charles, Dwayne Bowe and Brian Waters were originally voted into the Pro Bowl. Matt Cassel, Tamba Hali and Eric Berry also received Pro Bowl invitations following the Steelers' victory over the New York Jets in the AFC championship game.
Outside of Waters, it was the first Pro Bowl appearance for all of the other Chiefs players. Hali missed out on this game due to multiple injuries, while the other five players attended the game and played.
This season, the Chiefs released Waters and have lost Cassel, Charles and Berry to season-ending injuries. However, the Chiefs do have some players who deserve a spot on the 2012 AFC Pro Bowl roster.
