Matt THE FRANCHISE Cassel is not on this year’s Pro Bowl Team? WTF! The rest of the losers are. Yep, the worst team – not just in the NFL, but one of the worst in all-time modern football got FIVE guys on the Pro Bowl.
I kid you not.
My good pal AJ called me late last night with the incredible news.
“Glazer, the Chiefs got five guys on the Pro Bowl Team!!! How do you like that?”
I said I didn’t believe him.
I get Jamaal Charles, but who else? Eric Berry, Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson and Dustin Colquitt. I thought it was a joke.
Turns out, it is a joke.
I mean, it’s true but the joke is on us. The worst team in the NFL placed nearly one third of its 22 starters on the Pro Bowl. Hey Matt, hang in there. If Tom Brady or Manning don’t show up, you’re in too.
As I told Chiefs die hard supporter AJ, “They are my team, our team. I’m with them good or bad, you stand behind your team.”
Fair enough. I did for nearly five decades and they broke my heart nearly every year. Now we have an ownership and front office with no respect for its fans, the city or what was once a very respected franchise.
THE KANSAS CITY CHIEFS represent our city.
As for me, I am ashamed to call them my team. Ashamed. Like I’ve said they are like the woman I once loved who I walked in on screwing my best friend who wasn’t even handsome.
Let’s run this down fast.
Eric Berry is nearly a bust! He has five interceptions in his career, two forced fumbles…in HIS CAREER. This year he did nothing. I rank him a C. Zero sacks, zero forced fumbles. Oh yeah sorry, he does have the one interception. He has been a SLOW no show. He did not come back from his injury. He does not belong in any pro bowl and he knows it.
Tamba Hali, who was suspended for lord knows what, was a no show for about five games. He picked it up when the season was over and has of late been a B linebacker, but no, he’s not a pro bowl linebacker, not this year.
Derrick Johnson is a B+ linebacker. A number one pick who was benched for nearly a season by former Chiefs coach Todd Haley. The guy came back hard last year. This year he has been good but not great with zero interceptions, two sacks, and three forced fumbles. He does have 104 tackles, nice. He’s living on last years rep as is Hali.
Charles of course is our lone all star. Oh sorry, our punter. Well, I guess Dustin is solid. He does place it nicely. One of the reasons our defense got run all year. Field position. Please. He is good though, so I’ll give him a pass.
Hey maybe Romeo – he of the go for it on 4th and one inch instead of kicking the game winning field goal – deserves a shot to be coach of the year. But lets not get carried away. Didn’t we lose 14 games and win only two? No matter, lets have a parade for the FAB FIVE.
Yes, I know we haven’t played Denver yet – game 16 and lose number 14. Please.
