Mine would be Marcus Allen.

When I first was old enough to watch football it was J.J. Birden.

Anymore though I am a Green/Richardson guy

Art Still, Dan Saleamua are tops for me. That's not necessarily all on the field related though. These guys are absolutely incredible to interact with off the field.

1. Len Dawson

Lenny the Cool deserves the honor since he was not only a great player, but he guided the team to its' only Super Bowls, but more importantly remains in the KC sports scene today and displays great enthusiam and adoration for the Chiefs and the city.

2. Derrick Thomas

One of the most exciting players to put on a uniform for the Chiefs. When he was out on the field, I was literally on the edge of my seat: no way would I answer the phone, the door, or anything for that matter for I wasn't going to miss any chance of watching Derrick do his magic.

3. Priest Holmes

A quiet guy with one of the most dutiful of work ethics who's done more than anyone could ask of him.

4. Joe Delaney

An exciting runner who had so much going for him and this organization. He was a hero to many.

5. Bill Maas

I picked Bill because I've been fortunate enough to have met him a few times off the field and he was a great guy to hang with. He always treated me with respect, and I appreciated that.

That's a good answer. Obviously, Joe Delaney is a hero of mine. But, I never met the man. That's why I've chosen my favorites.

I'm not sure why I felt compelled to explain that....

DT by a light year. There's no one even remotely close to the picture that would get consideration from me. DT was the face of the great Chiefs D of the 90's.

All time fave would be too hard to pick. Right now, though, it's Trent. Class act, team leader with skills.

Hmm... that's tough question.

But I think I would bestow that honor upon Ernie Ladd. The guy was so damn big! 6' 9" and 300#. This was in 1966-7!!
He played for the Oilers first but then teamed with Buck Buchanan to form the largest and most feared defensive tackle duo in the AFL.

Ladd left the team (left the NFL actually) after the 68 season due to a contract dispute. If Ernie could have just hung on for another season he'd have played on that SB champion team.

Went on to become a pro wrestler. Ernie 'The Big Cat' Ladd.

Ironically, that's how I know about him. I was watching him wrestle on TV once as a kid, and my Dad said he used to play for the Chiefs.

Ernie had a good relationship with Stram. Stram invited Ladd to SB IV and had him on the sidelines.

I remember Ernie being in the crowd of players that picked Stram up and carried him off the field.

I go to a sushi restaurant which still has Bono's autograph hanging in their lobby with 2 or 3 other's. All things considered, I think I'd take that one down.

Kenny Stabler with a long list of players who come close. As far as non Oakland players, Walter Peyton, once again several others come to mind.

That's a cool page. It's got a lot of the greats from the 1960's and the 1990's Chiefs.

Some of the non-Chiefs that I used to enjoy watching are

John Hannah and Tony Boselli (great linemen who dominated opponents)

Terrell Davis (durable and spectacular)

Favre (even his stupid throws are fun to watch)

Jack Lambert (seemed to me to be nowhere near as good as his reputation; used to enjoy watching him jump on top of piles whose bottom layer was an already-tackled ball-carrier and then listen to fans and commentators marvel about what a great player he was)

Deion Sanders (had way more talent than most of the receivers he covered, could run orbits around some of them in order to put himself in position to intercept the ball)

Lawrence Taylor (dominated the field)

Art Still, by the way, was a helluva player. Had a reputation for not liking to practice, but he showed up on Sundays, which was the about day that the Chiefs back then ever played a regular season game.
