If you want to feel bad about the Kansas City Chiefs not winning a playoff game in the last 10 years, then don't read this. That's because, based on the way they have drafted, the Chiefs probably should have won a few playoff games in the last decade.

NFL.com looked at the number of Pro Bowlers each team has drafted in the last 10 years, and the Chiefs come in tied for second with 11 Pro Bowlers. They follow the Dallas Cowboys (13) and are tied with the San Francisco 49ers (11).

Even during the Pioli years when the Chiefs weren't very good I felt they were a talented team. This confirms that, indeed, the Chiefs have had a lot of individual talent. Now it's time to put that talent to use.

Here's a look at all of the Chiefs Pro Bowlers in the last 10 years:

Defense

Dontari Poe (2012)
Justin Houston (2011)
Eric Berry (2010)
Brandon Flowers (2008)
Tamba Hali (2006)
Derrick Johnson (2005)

Offense

Dexter McCluster (2010)
Branden Albert (2008)
Jamaal Charles (2008)
Dwayne Bowe (2007)

Special teams

Dustin Colquitt (2005).
