Best LA Chargers to never make the Pro Bowl: 2. Curtis Conway

Curtis Conway was not on the Chargers for very long but while he was on the team he was really special. Out of any player on the list thus far, Conway absolutely had the best three-year stretch and it is shocking that he did not make the Pro Bowl at least one time for his efforts.

The most reasonable explanation is because Conway played on the Chargers from 2000-2002, which was arguably the worst period in team history. The Chargers were among the bottom feeders of the league at this time and it was easy to overlook someone like Conway.

His numbers with the Chargers do the talking. Conway had a combined 2,689 receiving yards and 16 receiving touchdowns for the Bolts in those three seasons, including his 2001 season in which he finished with 1,125 receiving yards.

There were a lot of good receivers in the league at this time, also. Conway ranked 22nd in total receiving yards over those three seasons and his 1,125 receiving yards was good for 11th in the league in 2001.

Despite only being on the Chargers for three seasons, Conway ranks 15th in franchise history in total receiving yards and tied for 14th in receiving touchdowns. Of any player with at least 32 games played for the Chargers, Conway ranks fifth in yards per game behind John Jefferson, Keenan Allen, Tony Martin and Wes Chandler, all of which have at least one Pro Bowl to their name.
