First off, congrats to the One Man Gang Jared Allen for making his first Pro Bowl team and being named a starter for the defense. You beat out guys like Jason Taylor to earn your spot. Bravo, dude, bravo. I can’t imagine what you would have done this season if you hadn’t missed the first two games, not to mention if we had any consistency whatsoever from our defensive tackles. You’ve been seeing more double teams than a low-budget porn star recently. Anyways, great year and I know the Chiefs will do whatever it takes to bring you back. You’ve definitely earned your big contract — on and off the field.
Then there’s Tony Gonzalez. What can you even say about Tony G that hasn’t already been said? This is his tenth Pro Bowl. Tenth! How many players can boast that same claim right now? All time. Congrats, Tony, you’re one of the few Chiefs players who always shows up, healthy or banged-up, win or lose. He even beat out Kellen Winslow for the honor, and that guy is having a helluva season. Tony might as well have a condo down there at this point. Thanks for another great season!
Our only real snub was Derrick Johnson, but all three of the guys picked ahead of him led their teams to playoff births. Next year, D.J., next year.
