Chiefs, 49ers lead the way with eight Pro Bowlers each


The Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers have the most Pro Bowlers of any NFL team, with eight each.

Kansas City’s Pro Bowlers are tackle Branden Albert, strong safety Eric Berry, running back Jamaal Charles, cornerback Brandon Flowers, outside linebacker Tamba Hali, outside linebacker Justin Houston, punt returner Dexter McCluster and defensive lineman Dontari Poe. San Francisco’s Pro Bowlers are inside linebacker NaVorro Bowman, outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks, tight end Vernon Davis, running back Frank Gore, guard Mike Iupati, defensive lineman Justin Smith, offensive tackle Justin Staley and inside linebacker Patrick Willis.

After the 49ers and Chiefs, the team with the next-most Pro Bowlers was Seattle, with six: strong safety Kam Chancellor, running back Marshawn Lynch, cornerback Richard Sherman, free safety Earl Thomas, center Max Unger and quarterback Russell Wilson.

Other teams with multiple Pro Bowlers were the Broncos (five), Browns (five), Saints (five), Panthers (five), Ravens (four), Dolphins (four), Patriots (four), Bills (three) Cardinals (three), Bears (two), Bengals (two), Cowboys (two), Lions (two), Texans (two), Eagles (two), Steelers (two), Rams (two), Chargers (two) and Buccaneers (two).

    All Seahawk players should be tested for PEDs before being given the honor of Pro Bowler. Chances are very high one of their players are dirty.

    Just going by resent history fact(s)!

    Chiefs won’t be at the pro bowl this year anyway.

  3. tommymomoney says: Dec 27, 2013 9:41 PM

    Would have liked to see a younger, more deserving guy get in over Justin Smith, who makes it on name recognition only. Still a solid player but far from dominant.

    Interesting… The Colts beat the Chiefs and 49ers (both on the road) by a combined 50-14 and just have 1 Pro Bowler.

    Something doesn’t add up there.

  5. dukeearl says: Dec 27, 2013 9:43 PM

    I think that should be “Joe” Staley.

    G’job SF and Seattle.

  6. raiderlyfe510 says: Dec 27, 2013 9:43 PM

    So…..why was Scott Pioli fired again?

  7. jdubkc says: Dec 27, 2013 9:45 PM

    The whole Chiefs team?

  8. seabronco says: Dec 27, 2013 9:55 PM

    The chefs???? Hahahaha wow

    As if it wasn’t the biggest joke of all time…

  10. gabe77 says: Dec 27, 2013 9:59 PM

    So the Chiefs have 8 pro bowlers and just 1 win against playoff bound teams (only by default because someone has to win the NFC East).

  11. normswifevera says: Dec 27, 2013 10:07 PM

    KC has 8 players and none of them are Derrick Johnson? He’s more deserving than at least 5 of the 8. One of the most criminally underrated players in the league.

  12. gbfanforever says: Dec 27, 2013 10:11 PM

    Just checked and Eddie Lacey has literally identical stats as Gore and Lynch (Lacey has two more TDs than Gore) yet no mention of Lacey as even a pro-bowl snub. Goes to show the bias the writers that pic the all popularity team possess. Oh well, those guys are toward the end of their careers, they can keep the irrelevant honors.

  13. natijim235 says: Dec 27, 2013 10:19 PM

    LOL just goes to show how disfunctional browns organization is….like always bengals get screwed

  14. kcrobert10 says: Dec 27, 2013 10:25 PM

    Ah they missed d Johnson mlb for the chiefs.

  15. superleadhead says: Dec 27, 2013 10:27 PM

    It’s Joe Staley.

  16. riverhorsey says: Dec 27, 2013 10:34 PM

    My God, Chiefs could win the SB !!

  17. bdawkhit says: Dec 27, 2013 10:46 PM

    I guess 25 TDs against only 2 INTs in essentially half a season is not Pro Bowl worthy. Maybe next year.

  18. richatthelake says: Dec 27, 2013 10:47 PM

    Flowers makes it for Chiefs but not Derrick Johnson?? Unbelievable mistake. He should have been the 2nd Pro Bowler elected after Jamaal Charles.

  19. jbaxt says: Dec 27, 2013 11:07 PM

    Awesome! Go Chiefs, young and a wonderfully bright future.

  20. seattlesue427 says: Dec 27, 2013 11:07 PM

    It’s okay that Seattle only has six. They’re all going to be busy getting ready for the Super Bowl anyway. Go Hawks!

  21. jbaxt says: Dec 27, 2013 11:09 PM

    How Derrick Johnson isn’t a PB ILB is beyond me. I’ll take Bowman, Willis, and Kechley over DJ but they’re all in the NFC. Pretty bad miss there in my opinion.

  22. jayniner says: Dec 27, 2013 11:34 PM

    So, some of these 49ers may miss the Pro Bowl two years in a row…..

    Hey, don’t judge….we can dream, right?

  23. 1phd says: Dec 27, 2013 11:52 PM

    It’s JOE Staley and well deserved!

  24. jacobk621 says: Dec 28, 2013 12:42 AM

    How could a raven make it from the o-line position ?? Did the voters even watch their games !!

  25. firerogergoodell says: Dec 28, 2013 12:59 AM

    Cordarrelle Patterson got ROBBED.

  26. 209erfan says: Dec 28, 2013 2:31 AM

    Whitner not getting the call this year is just a shame … He’s been awesome all year and his bone crushing hits have set the tone for quite a few games … He’s rarely ever out of position like he was in the past playing next to goldson, the addition of Eric Reid has really solidified this secondary and has allowed Whitner to play like the safety people thought he would be coming out of Ohio st.

  27. tommymomoney says: Dec 28, 2013 3:09 AM

    Bahaha danospleasanton you lose all credibility when you can’t even spell the word ‘recent’. Seahawks will stomp your team with or without PEDs, and you are just bitter about that.

  28. pv1960 says: Dec 28, 2013 6:21 AM

    It wouldn’t matter how many pro-bowlers KC has, Fat Reid will still find a way to blow as he did in Philly.

  29. rofeo says: Dec 28, 2013 7:06 AM

    What a joke.

  30. sagatti says: Dec 28, 2013 7:32 AM

    During that 9-0 run I KNOW the Chiefs fans wouldve been ALL OVER this… BUT… Since theyre BACKING into the playoffs theyre feeling a bit more MORTAL…lol

  31. johngaltwho says: Dec 28, 2013 7:42 AM

    No Packers this year – not surprising. Next year, we’ll see Rodgers, Cobb, Nelson, Lacy, Bulaga, Shields and Matthews.

  32. officialgame says: Dec 28, 2013 8:52 AM

    Well last year KC had 9 Pro Bowlers while winning a grand total of 2 games so I guess things are moving in the right direction.

  33. vols84 says: Dec 28, 2013 9:01 AM

    To answer the question earlier, Pioli was fired for giving Kansas City the gift of Todd Haley and two wins last year under Romeo. Flowers did not deserve the pro bowl selection, and I am a chiefs fan. Derrick Johnson had a great year and should have been selected.

  34. nosmak40 says: Dec 28, 2013 9:59 AM

    Joe says “this years pro bowl team is a house of cards”

  35. akshunj says: Dec 28, 2013 10:20 AM

    Pro Bowl selections do not mean squat, Super Bowls are what counts.

  36. sf69ers says: Dec 28, 2013 10:49 AM

    As a 49ers fan, surprised to see Iupati and Brooks on the list. Boone has outplayed Iupati this season, and Whitner has been making all the plays on the strong side of the defense.

  37. hess97 says: Dec 28, 2013 11:18 AM

    Whitner, Dawson, Lee, Boone, and Boldin could easily have been on this list. Whitner may have played his best season as a pro. Hope his clutch pass break ups and overall play continues into the playoffs.

  38. stagedoorjohnny says: Dec 28, 2013 11:21 AM

    They had to include 8 players from San Francisco to avoid the whinning from the 40whiners’ fans.

  39. hess97 says: Dec 28, 2013 11:35 AM

    Gore may be the best back in the league if you account what he does on all three downs and run/pass game. Same could be said about Vernon Davis. But I agree with you that Lacy has had a pro bowl type season. He’ll probably get ROY, if it’s not Keenan Allen.

  40. cascadehawk says: Dec 28, 2013 3:01 PM

    I can’t believe Aldon Smith didn’t make it! That guy can not only play some football but he can get multiple DUI’s, rack up felony gun and assault charges to boot.

    That right there is Hall of Fame material in the NBA.

    The No Fun League (NFL).

    Maybe next year Aldon, a few more DUI’s and maybe shoot a person or two and you should be in.

  41. stagedoorjohnny says: Dec 28, 2013 5:30 PM

    Let me see if I get this correct…

    SF has two offensive linemen named while Seattle had two offensive linemen injured during the season. SF has more defensive players named despite the fact that Seattle has given up the least amount of yards and are just about tied with Carolina for the least amount of points given up.
    SF has played one more game at home and one less on the road than Seattle and
    SF has three healthy receivers while Seattle has doesn’t have it’s top two.

    Let me see. SF should be running away with the West.

    Opps. Correction. Seattle on verge of winning the West Sunday.

    Fan voting just like the NBA
