    Nah, probably not. They'd still be the Chiefs.

        It is s dumb. Nickel is so different from the outside corner spots. It should have its own selection.

          This is a weird article -

          "Broncos quarterback Matt Prater set a new NFL record with a 64-yard field goal this season, and so it wasn’t surprising that Prater was one of the two kickers chosen to this season’s Pro Bowl, along with Baltimore’s Justin Tucker. But while it wasn’t surprising, it also wasn’t deserving.

          Prater benefited from the effects of Denver’s altitude, where the air is less dense and kicked footballs travel farther. And a closer look at Prater’s numbers this season makes clear that he was far from the best kicker in the league when he wasn’t benefiting from that elevation.

          Prater’s 64-yard field goal was impressive, but lots of NFL kickers could make a field goal that long in Denver if given the opportunity. Away from Denver, Prater didn’t show off a particularly strong leg: His longest field goal on the road this season was good from just 50 yards, at Dallas.

          Overall, Prater had a good season on field goals, but not as good as Denver’s altitude made him look.

          They seem to imply he would have missed field goals that he did not try?
          He was 23 of 24 on FG and 71 of 71 on PAT. His 95.8% led the league. But it was the altitude

            That WAS a bizarre article! Check out this passage from the same source:

            "Gano was also better than Prater on long field goals, going 6-for-6 from 50 yards and beyond, compared to 5-for-6 for Prater."

            The writer fails to mention, however, that Gano was 18-21 from less than 50 yards out, while Prater was a perfect 18 out of 18.

              Gutless,
              Did this article come out of KC Bleacher Report? His first sentence of calling Prater "Broncos quarterback" had me all over this article. Prater had a great year on field goals, not good. We always joked Prater couldn't make anything inside 40 yards so make sure he is at the 30 or beyond. Not this season. Throw the 64 yard out and he and Tucker deserves it.

                KM should be on that list. 1000+ Rushing yard, 500+ and receiving yards and 12 TD's on a pass happy running back by committee team.

                  No defensive players for the Broncos, no Bailey, no Miller, for obvious reasons. But what about DRC or Phillips?

                    Knowshon Moreno- 1015 rushing yds, 507 receiving yds, 12 TD's
                    Frank Gore- 1114 rushing yds, 141 receiving yds, 9 TD's
                    Marshawn Lynch- 1150 rushing yds, 312 receiving yds 13 TD's

                    You can make a case for Lynch over Knowshon, but there's no way Gore should have been selected before him.

                      Besides the players (because of contract incentives), who cares? You think Manning cares. Hell no! He cares about plays, games and superbowls. And probably in that order.

                        Hopefully this snub motivates Moreno to have a better post season than gore or lynch...

                          not to go all dork here, but if PFT is going to hold altitude against Prater on that kick, I want them to show their work and include the freezing elements and their effects on the ball's density on that kick.

                          Oh, and the Broncos' quarterback Matt Prater

                            and that's pretty much what I was saying. Though ironically he made the pro bowl.

                              That's cool that we are the first team to have two quarterbacks go to the probowl. Congratulations to Manning and Prater, our QB duo!
