AP All-Pro team: Adrian Peterson 1st team, Jamaal Charles 2nd team

The Chiefs have five Pro Bowlers (and two alternates) but just one member of the AP All-Pro team -- Jamaal Charles.

Any other year Jamaal Charles would be in the discussion for comeback player of the year and first team All-Pro running back.

But Adrian Peterson happened this year.

Peterson and Seahawks running back were named to the AP All-Pro first team on Saturday morning while KC Chiefsrunning back Jamaal Charles and Redskins running back Alfred Morris landed on the second team. Charles had seven votes.

I think it says a lot about what folks think of Charles if he beat out Arian Foster, who has 10 more rushing touchdowns than Charles this season.

I don't need to tell you about Jamaal Charles' season. In the midst of the crap that was the Chiefs 2012 season, Charles was the bright spot. He rushed for a career high 1,509 yards, averaging 5.3 yards per carry. He was the only fun part of this season.

Congrats to Jamaal on a big honor.

Which other Chiefs player had a shot?
