The Kansas City Chiefs had two players elected to the 2012 Pro Bowl -- LB Tamba Hali and LB Derrick Johnson. Those are the two we guessed would make it considering the years they've had. But were any Chiefs snubbed? '
After looking at the list, the best argument on snubs is for CB Brandon Flowers. The cornerbacks that made it in on the AFC side: New York Jets CB Darrelle Revis, Denver Broncos CB Champ Bailey and Houston Texans CB Johnathan Joseph.
He was too inconsistent this year, especially at the beginning of the year. But one league insider we talked to yesterday did say that Flowers is one of the three most complete corners in the AFC when he's on, which is saying a lot considering the talent at that position in the AFC. (That same league insider pointed out that, to some players who have bonuses worked into their contracts, the Pro Bowl is more than just a popularity vote -- it's a pay day.) Unfortunately, that wasn't enough to get him into the Pro Bowl.
If Flowers were to make it in, I'd remove Bailey. Maybe I'm being a bit of an ageist against the 33-year old Bailey, or maybe I just don't like the Broncos (bet on the latter), but I would prefer Flowers over him.
Any other potential snubs? I don't really see any out there. Even Flowers as a snub is a stretch.
