Well, if you're here in Kansas City, the idea of being in Honolulu, Hawaii sounds pretty damn good right now. Having been to Honolulu and staying in the same resort that the NFL Pro Bowl players are staying in, believe me, it is awesome. The 2012 Pro Bowl Game is pretty much just a nice vacation for the NFL players who were honored to be selected to go and represent their teams. Obviously many of the key players who were voted to the game will not be attending as players for the Super Bowl matchup New York Giants and New England Patriots will be reporting to Indianapolis for practice later in the week and will not participate in the 2012 Pro Bowl. The rosters, depth charts and starters are as follows:
2012 Pro Bowl Starters - Offense
Quarterback - Ben Rothlesburger, Steelers
Running Back - Maurice Jones-Drew, Jaguars
Fullback - Vonta Leach, Ravens
Wide Receiver - Mike Wallace, Steelers, A.J. Greene, Bengals
Tight End - Antonio Gates, Chargers
Offensive Line - Nick Mangold, Jets, Joe Thomas, Browns, D'Brickashaw Ferguson, Jets, Ben Grubbs, Ravens, Marshal Yanda, Ravens
Kicker - Sabastian Janikowski, Raiders
Punter - Shane Legler, Raiders - how the hell did Dustin Colquitt, Chiefs miss this team?

Other than that, the Chiefs were completely eliminated from the offense COMPLETELY.
The only Chief players that made the 2012 Pro Bowl were defensive players Tamba Hali and Derrick Johnson (not a starter).
