The Kansas City Chiefs have been the surprise team of the season so far, but when will people begin to consider them as a realistic Super Bowl contender? With Andy Reid and Alex Smith in the organization, they are legitimate contenders and indeed they are a top NFL team.
The Chiefs are currently 11-4 (with one regular season game remaining), and already people are writing them off before the playoffs have started. With the NFL announcing the selected players to take part in the 2014 Pro Bowl, football fans around the world were eager to see how many of their star players would be chosen; and Chiefs fans were not disappointed.
A total of eight Chiefs players were selected:
Branden Albert– Tackle
Eric Berry– Safety
Jamaal Charles- Running Back
Brandon Flowers– Cornerback
Tamba Hali– Linebacker
Justin Houston– Linebacker
Dexter McCluster– Punt Returner
Dontari Poe– Defensive Tackle
The Pro Bowl will see one key change this year with a draft being used to decide the making of both teams rather than the best of each conference. These eight Chiefs players could play against one another which will be fun for the fans and players to see. With these eight players from across their offense and defense all being selected, surely the Chiefs deserve more recognition. The Chiefs may be the new kid on the block, but they have a real chance of winning the Super Bowl.
With the talented core of players they possess, anything is possible. By having the most players selected for the Pro Bowl, it’s a sure sign the Chiefs are a top NFL team — although critics would have you thinking otherwise. If the Chiefs can find consistency and continue their positives in the playoffs, then the Pro Bowl and possibly Super Bowl weeks will be littered with talented members of the Kansas City roster.
