Chiefs Pro Bowlers Show Up Huge in Hawaii

The Kansas City Chiefs led the NFL in the amount of players they sent to the annual NFL all-star game in Honolulu, Hawaii at Aloha Stadium. In all, the Chiefs had 10 players in the game. Those players were:

Quarterback Alex Smith, punt returner Dexter McCluster, linebackers Justin Houston and Derrick Johnson, and cornerback Brandon Flowers for Team Rice and running back Jamaal Charles, safety Eric Berry,  left tackle Branden Albert, defensive tackle Dontari Poe and linebacker Tamba Hali for Team Sanders.

Nearly every player in the game from the Chiefs made plays in one way or the other. Whether it was Dontari Poe’s interception on a J.J. Watt deflection, a big 17-yard Jamaal Charles run, Derrick Johnson winning the defensive MVP for his forced fumble and nine tackles, including a huge hit on Chiefs teammate Jamaal Charles, a huge Dexter McCluster punt return to set up the game winning drive, or the Chiefs own quarterback Alex Smith throwing the game winning touchdown pass, the Chiefs made an impact on the Pro Bowl in its first year under the new format.

Regardless of what you thought the game may have been in the past, this game was fun to watch. I’m sad that it’s the last time we’ll see the Chiefs on the field until next year.

It’s been a fun ride, Addicts. But don’t go anywhere, we’ll be giving you your fix through the off season.

As always, thanks for reading and GO CHIEFS!

    The guys went out there and represented! Poe’s int and return, Berry’s int and return. Alex was running for his life but made some really good throws. It’s was nice seeing the guys get after each other!
    Go Chiefs!

    Alex Smith leading the game winning drive is something I predicted a few days ago but boy all the chiefs played well and that was great to see. Im sure micah talked all kinda noise when alex threw the pic but he was nowhere to be heard from on the game winning drive. I can’t wait for the off season to start to see what happens. Go chiefs!

      No I turned the ch for a while a missed the int Alex threw.

    So proud of our Chiefs representing the team. They all played well. I thought the game was so much better than it has been for years! It was definitely worth watching. Having 10 players to watch didn’t hurt, It had good plays and great hits. Easy there DJ! You know that’s Jamaal tight? I hope what we saw tonight is the DJ and Flowers that come back stronger next year. The guys were having some fun.Play of the game for me was Big Man Poe rumbling down the field! Sweet that two of the three interviews were DJ and AS11 after his game winning drive. Notice how they both gave credit to their teammates. That’s the kind of players that make it easy to be PROUD of the Chiefs!

      DJ, in a very nice and subtle way, did let them know he came in with a chip on his shoulder for being snubbed. Well he showed them why he should have been there all along, and they knew it.

    I’m sorry to say I didn’t think it’d be worth watching so I didn’t. With all the silliness, leading up to the game, I lost interest. I’m glad it turned out to be a fun watch and shame on me for letting the NFL mislead me.

    • mnelson52

      I don’t think anyone expected what we got. It was a pleasant surprise. I like the fact that they played football, but I would still w rather see AFC against NFC

    Very entertaining game, at least from a Chiefs’ fan perspective I thought. More than anything, I think I enjoyed watching Alex Smith operate with good blocking and good receivers. Not flawless, but definitely showed he was good enough to get the job when the game was on the line. The game winning drive in the final minute was particularly exceptional.

    Also found it a bit interesting that when DJ is allowed to do his thing, he dominates and earns MVP accolades. Tends to make me wonder if Sutton is scheming DJ in a way that maximizes his talent?
