Well that's not the case anymore as Linebacker Tamba Hali and rookie Safety Eric Berry were added to the NFL's post season game in Hawaii on Sunday.
When Kansas City Chiefs General Manager Scott Pioli drafted safety Eric Berry with the fifth overall pick of the 2009 draft, the move turned a few head. Berry was the first safety taken that high in nearly twenty years.
On Sunday, he became the Chiefs first rookie defensive player to make the Pro Bowl since the late Derrick Thomas back in 1989.
Berry had an exceptional second half of the season in 2010. And his play in the teams playoff loss against Baltimore showed off his talents. Berry finished the season with four interceptions, two sacks and 92 tackles.
Linebacker Tamba Hali will be joining Berry in Hawaii thanks to his AFC leading 15 sacks. Hali, who just finished the final year of his five-year rookie contract, was the heart and soul of the Chiefs defense in 2010.
Generally as he went so did the Chiefs defense On the season, to go along with his league lead sack total, Hali registered 52 tackles and forced four fumbles. Hali had hoped to sign a long term contract extension with the Chiefs during the regular season but thus far the two sides have yet to get a deal done.
Berry and Hali will be joining offensive mates Quarterback Matt Cassel, Wide Receiver Dwayne Bowe, Running Back Jamaal Charles and Guard Brian Waters in Sunday's Pro Bowl that can be seen this Sunday on Fox's KCTV-5 in Kansas City.
