Phillips added to Pro Bowl

Posted Jan 24, 2011

The Chargers outside linebacker will join the AFC all-star roster, replacing Pittsburgh’s James Harrison.


SAN DIEGO – Another Charger is headed to the Pro Bowl after Pittsburgh’s 24-19 win against the New York Jets in the AFC Championship.

Shaun Phillips will join the AFC all-star roster in Hawaii, replacing Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison.

“It’s huge just because of the fact that I know the work I put in,” Phillips said. “In my eyes I try to play at a Pro Bowl level every year. It’s just good. (It will) give me motivation to keep on working and never be satisfied.”

Phillips finished the season with a team-best 11 sacks and 19 pressures. Besides chasing opposing quarterbacks, he played stout against the run and in coverage, making 66 tackles and leading the linebackers with seven passes defensed.

His 11 sacks are the second-most of his career and moved him into fourth place in Chargers history with 56.5 for his career.

Phillips earned AFC Defensive Player of the Week honors for his performance against the Arizona Cardinals on Oct. 3, during which he made four sacks and returned an interception for a touchdown in a 41-10 win.

It’s the first Pro Bowl invite for Phillips, who is the only representative from a unit that finished No. 1 in the NFL in total defense. He’ll join quarterback Philip Rivers and guard Kris Dielman as Chargers representatives. Antonio Gates also was selected but will not play due to a foot injury.

“One of the biggest things that kind of bothered me a little bit: I know it’s a team game, but we’ve got to have at least one player that can represent us because of the fact that we did finish No. 1 in total defense,” said Phillips, who credited his defensive teammates for making his job easier.

“This is a testament to all the players and the coaches that we are a good defense and we continue to be a good defense. We’ve got to have at least one representative.”

Kickoff is scheduled for Jan. 30 at 4 p.m. PST at Aloha Stadium in Honolulu.
