Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Flowers was hoping to be heading to Hawai'i as a member of the AFC Pro Bowl roster, but instead he is sitting home. However, this past week Flowers was named to USA Today's 2011 All-Joe team. To make it to this team a player can not have earned a Pro Bowl nod.
Here is the description of the award:
USA Today's All-Joe Team is constructed to recognize the NFL's "unsung heroes." It's an honor originally created in 1992 as a tribute to former Chiefs DT Joe Phillips, who played an important defensive role alongside perennial Pro Bowlers Derrick Thomas and Neil Smith.
This past season Flowers had four interceptions which was tied for 12th and one of those interceptions was returned for a touchdown. Flowers also had a career high 81 total tackles and had 20 pass break ups.
The Chiefs have had multiple players make the All-Joe team and center Casey Wiegmann has appeared on the All-Joe team more than any other player in Chiefs history with six appearances.
