Underachieving Chiefs put five on Pro Bowl roster

The Kansas City Chiefs have won only two games this year. And they have nevertheless placed five players on the AFC Pro Bowl roster.
Making the roster were running back Jamaal Charles, linebacker Tamba Hali, linebacker Derrick Johnson, safety Eric Berry, and punter Dustin Colquitt.
Two of the five — Charles and Berry — returned in 2012 from torn ACLs, which makes their accomplishments even more impressive. Both have played all 15 games to date in 2012.
It’s a solid nucleus for a team that arguably is only a good quarterback away from becoming competitive. Of course, the same thing could be said for pretty much every struggling team that currently doesn’t have a good quarterback.
