No Chiefs In The Pro Bowl For The First Time Since '78

The NFL has released the list of players who have been awarded with a Pro Bowl appearance and it includes no Kansas City Chiefs players.

This is the first time since 1978 that no Chief has been represented at the Pro Bowl.

Sigh.

There's always a chance an injury will keep someone out of playing and then maybe a Chief could be tapped.

Tony Gonzalez was previously our saving grace in being represented at the Pro Bowl. Brian Waters, too. But with Gonzalez and Waters playing on a less than spectacular offensive line, that era has ended.
