CHIEFS IN PRO BOWL: Eric Berry, Jamaal Charles, Dustin Colquitt, Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson - http://chfs.me/Rj0xuP #chiefsprobowl



Pro Bowlers Chosen

Five Chiefs represent AFC in Honolulu

The 2012 NFL campaign just got extended for five members of the Kansas City Chiefs. The National Football League announced on Wednesday that safety Eric Berry, running back Jamaal Charles, punter Dustin Colquitt and linebackers Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson have been selected to participate in the 2013 AFC-NFC Pro Bowl.

The NFL’s All-Star game will be played at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu, Hawaii on Sunday, Jan. 27, 2013. For Berry, Charles, Hali and Johnson, it will mark the second time each has officially been selected to the Pro Bowl. Meanwhile, it is the first time in Colquitt’s career that he has earned such accolades.

Eric Berry (6-0, 211) has been designated a Pro Bowl starter. This season he has started all 15 contests for the club recording 80 tackles (68 solo), 9.0 tackles for loss, one interception and 10 passes defensed. His career numbers include 206 tackles (150 solo), 2.0 sacks (-11.0 yards), five interceptions for 102 yards with one touchdown return, 23 passes defensed and one forced fumble.

Berry’s initial trip to the Pro Bowl was in 2010 after his rookie season. He became the first Chiefs rookie to earn a Pro Bowl berth since LB Derrick Thomas following the 1989 season. He was the first Chiefs safety to make the NFL’s All-Star game since S Jerome Woods following the 2003 season. The Fairburn, Ga., native originally joined the Chiefs as Kansas City’s first pick (fifth overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft.

Jamaal Charles (5-11, 199) has played in all 15 games (14 starts) in 2012, recording 1,456 yards on 271 carries (5.4 avg.) with five rushing touchdowns. He has caught 34 passes for 222 yards (6.5 avg.) with one receiving touchdown. Charles currently leads the AFC in rushing yards (1,456) and yards from scrimmage (1,678). He has recorded two 200-plus yard rushing performances this season, including a 233-yard game at New Orleans (9/23) and a 226-yard effort vs. Indianapolis (12/23). He now owns the top three highest single-game rushing totals in franchise history. This season Charles is averaging 97.1 rushing yards per game and has 37 carries of 10 yards, including three touchdowns more than 80 yards. Against New Orleans (9/23) he broke a franchise record with a 91-yard touchdown run and added TD runs of 80 and 86 at Cleveland (12/9) and vs. Indianapolis (12/23), respectively.

Charles’ career numbers include 770 carries for 4,483 yards with 17 touchdowns. He owns 151 receptions for 1,268 yards with seven touchdown grabs. His 5.82 yards per carry average is the highest average in NFL history, topping Pro Football Hall of Fame RB Jim Brown who averaged 5.22 yards per carry over his career. Charles has eclipsed the 1,000-yard rushing mark in three of his five NFL seasons with the Chiefs. The Port Arthur, Texas, native originally joined the Chiefs as a third-round pick (73rd overall) in the 2008 NFL Draft.

Dustin Colquitt (6-3, 210) set a single-season franchise record with 42 punts inside the 20-yard line heading into Week 17 and is now tied for second place in NFL history for most punts inside the 20-yard line in a single season behind Arizona P Dave Zastudil’s 2012 mark of 44. He has punted 75 times for 3,514 yards, marking the seventh-consecutive time in his eight-year career that he has punted for more than 3,000 yards in a single season. He has a gross average of 46.85 yards per kick, the highest gross average of his career, and carries a 40.25 net average, trailing only his single-season career-best 40.78 net average in 2009. To go along with his 42 punts inside the 20 he has seven touchbacks and has a season-long punt of 71 yards.

The Knoxville, Tenn., native has played in 125 games in his eight-year career with Kansas City. He ranks second in team history with 649 punts for 29,008 punting yards, trailing P Jerrel Wilson’s team record of 1,018 punts and 44,218 punting yards. For his career, he has amassed franchise bests with both a 44.70 gross average and a 39.06 net average. He has landed 247 career punts inside the 20-yard line, has recorded 55 touchbacks and has a career-long punt of 81 yards. The University of Tennessee product originally joined the Chiefs as the club’s third-round draft pick (99th overall) in the 2005 NFL Draft.

Tamba Hali (6-3, 275) has been designated a Pro Bowl starter. He has recorded 9.0 sacks (-57.0 yards) to go with 49 tackles (41 solo), 14 QB pressures, two passes defensed and one forced fumble in 14 games in 2012. Hali has recorded two multi-sack games in 2012, bringing his career total to 14 contests with multiple sacks. He is seeking one more sack in Week 17 to become only the third player in franchise history to record double-digit sack totals in three consecutive seasons, joining LB Derrick Thomas (1990-92) and DE Neil Smith (four from 1992-95).

A native of Gbarnga, Liberia, who grew up in Teaneck, N.J., Hali has started all 109 games he has played in during his seven-year NFL career with Kansas City. He has amassed 62.5 career sacks (-395.0 yards), good enough to rank fourth in team history. In that time, he has accumulated 426 tackles (324 solo), 104 QB pressures, 24 forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, 11 passes defensed and one interception. His 24 forced fumbles place him third in franchise history behind Thomas and Smith. The Penn State product originally joined the Chiefs as the team’s first-round draft pick (20th overall) in the 2006 NFL Draft.

Derrick Johnson (6-3, 242) leads the team in tackles for the third straight season with 119 tackles (104 solo) heading into the final week of the season, one year after setting the franchise’s single-season tackle record with 179 tackles (126 solo) and earning his first trip to the Pro Bowl. He has registered double-digit tackle totals in four games this season. Johnson also owns 12.0 tackles for loss, 2.0 sacks (-10.0 yards), five pressures, three forced fumbles and two passes defensed.

The Waco, Texas, native has played in 121 games (108 starts) during his eight-year career with Kansas City. He ranks fifth in team history with 868 tackles (675 solo), one of just six players in team history to reach the 800-tackle plateau. Johnson has tallied 50.0 tackles for loss, 18.0 sacks (-121.0 yards), nine interceptions returned for 233 yards, including three returned for touchdowns, 19 forced fumbles to rank fourth in team history, five fumble recoveries, 49 passes defensed, 42 QB pressures and 18 career special teams stops. Johnson was originally selected by Kansas City in the first round (15th overall) of the 2005 NFL Draft.

Wow. This is surprising to say the least. Berry is very respected by other players around the league, apparently. Kind of pissed that Houston didn't get in...same with Flowers.

well Berry has looked good the past two weeks...I still have high hopes for my guy Scary Berry!

As for the Succop nonsense...he's a league average kicker who seems to always have a timely miss. Janikowski didn't make the Pro Bowl and he was 31-34 and his shortest miss was 51...so please, don't try and say Succop was anywhere close to deserving, lol

Not a flimsy argument at all. Justin Houston arguably deserved to go more than Hali.

Are you nuts? There's no way that a zombie Derrick Thomas would have any speed around the corner. Zombies are slow as molasses. Do you pay any attention to the combine results at all?

I'd ask how Berry made it but I'm familiar with the voting process...

Houston deserved it more than Hali. Berry did not deserve it, just a rash of injuries at the position. I would imagine Flowers will make the team after all the others turn it down or have their mystery injuries.

Justin Houston is far and away the better natrual talent and probably the best player on the defense if you consider age, potential, current talent and what he could be in a couple years.

he's performing at a near ELITE level in only his 2nd year.

It took Tamba and DJ like 6 years to sniff that kind of production

Why the 2-13 Chiefs sent five players to the Pro Bowl
TJ Johnson Dec 27, 2012 4:00 PM

http://www.itsalloverfatman.com/bron...o-the-pro-bowl


Dustin Colquitt - Punter

This doesn't come as a complete shock, does it? If your team is completely average, your punter is going to have plenty of opportunities to get his leg into a few punts (as did the Broncos' own Britton Colquitt last year). According to Pro Football Focus, Dustin Colquitt has been the seventh highest-rated punter in the league.

He's also placed the second most balls inside the opponent's 20-yard line. Combine this with a respectible average of 46.2 yards per kick, and you have a punter who makes a decent case for getting to the Pro Bowl.

Jamaal Charles - Running Back

Let's face it, the Chiefs are terrible at the quarterback position (it's one of the places I'd honestly consider if I were Tim Tebow). So the Chiefs absolutely have to rely on their running game.

Jamaal Charles, by anyone's account, is one of the best backs in the league; further, he's faced so many seven- and eight-man fronts, it's almost shocking that his average is 5.4 yards per carry (second only to C.J. Spiller in the AFC).

And now that he's cracked the 750-carry threshold, Charles has far and away the highest per-carry-average in NFL history, with more than half a yard on Jim Brown, the prior record holder.

For a speed guy, he averages 2.3 yards after contact per carry. That ain't too shabby. Charles is certainly Pro Bowl worthy.

Derrick Johnson - Inside Linebacker

Again, here's a player whose Pro Bowl status is a reflection of the Chiefs' dog-vomit offense. Johnson has been nothing less than a tackling machine this year. He has registered 99 tackes and has a league-leading 68 stops.

Clearly, Johnson benefits from playing in a 3-4 defense, where your inside linebacker had better be tough, but the idea that Johnson isn't qualified for the Pro Bowl because of the Chiefs' record is a bit of a stretch.

Tamba Hali - Outside Linebacker

It's not a shock to me that an outside linebacker for the Chiefs made the Pro Bowl (similarly to Derrick Johnson, in the 3-4, all linebackers are going to get plenty of opportunities for tackles), it's that the wrong Chiefs outside linebacker was chosen. Justin Houston has been to the Chiefs what Wesley Woodyard has to the Broncos, although Houston was a third-round pick with a much higher grade (the guy smoked weed before the combine and was downgraded).

According to PFF, Houston is graded only behind Anthony Spencer and Clay Matthews as 3-4 OLBs and a full thirteen spots ahead of Hali. On tape, Houston's coverage skills are second to no other linebacker currently in the league.

Should Hali have made the Pro Bowl? Probably not. Does that mean the Chiefs should't have placed Houston? I don't think so.

Eric Berry - Safety

Here is where the disgust should begin and end. Berry's rookie year, versatility, and reputation got him the nod, and although Berry is one of the most talented safeties in the league, he didn't deserve entry to the Pro Bowl this year.

I could go on and on about how the Chiefs use Berry in every position (free and strong, man-to-man like a corner wide, in the slot, blitzing like a extra linebacker), but there's just two words I need to say: Eric Weddle. Weddle yesterday likened his own omission from the Pro Bowl to a "slap to the face." In the case of Eric Berry, I'd certainly agree.
