6 Chiefs to Pro Bowl
After the Steelers secured a trip to the Super Bowl this past weekend, it was announced that Kansas City Chiefs players Tamba Hali and Eric Berry would be heading to the pro bowl as areplacements. Hali has to be considered the biggest snub this season as he lead the AFC with 14.5 sacks. He is the first Chiefs linebacker to be named to the pro bowl since Derrick Thomas made it back in 1997.
Eric Berry becomes the first Chiefs rookie to be named to a Pro Bowl since 1989 when Derrick Thomas made it. Berry lead the Chiefs this season with 4 interceptions. Berry and Hali are replacing Steelers players, S Troy Polamalu and LB James Harrison. This will be each players first selection to the Pro Bowl.
They will be joined in Hawaii by Chiefs players RB Jamaal Charles, G Brian Waters, WR Dwayne Bowe, and QB Matt Cassel. Cassel was named a replacement last week for Patriots QB Tom Brady who is having surgery on his foot.
The Pro Bowl is this sunday on FOX at 7:00(EST). After playing last years game at the Super Bowl host stadium, the game returns to Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii.
