That's right. The runners are in the stadium now, doing their final lap across the AFC West. We'll start with the team that everyone loves to not care about, the San Diego Chargers.

Poll forthcoming.

The only caveat to this pick is that Tomlinson will knock out Fouts in another couple of seasons.

I went with Winslow, Alworth, and Seau, with apologies to all of their offensive line stars like Washington, White, Wilkerson, and Sweeney.

He probably isn't the greatest, and I can't even remember his name.

But there was a guy who wore #82 (I think) but lined up as a running back, especially on third down. Man, he killed us on a regular basis.

Ryan Leaf has been and will be the face of this franchise for years to come.

Garrison
Allworth.
Speedy Duncan

Agreed....if he can avoid a major injury.

Nobody could quick kick like Hadl. Why don't they do that anymore?

The Jayhawk homer in me wanted to vote for Hadl but I said,

How in the world did Gary Anderson and Mike Garrett make this list but not Paul Lowe? Also, John Jefferson had a more significant impact as an offensive player than both Anderson and Garrett. So did Anthony Miller. Anderson had a so-so career. I even would put James Brooks and Lionel "Little Train" James ahead of him.

Ron Mix is one of the greatest offensive linemen in history and he only got one vote! Unbelieveable.

Yeah, I missed Lowe. He should've been on there.

As for Jefferson and Brooks, I'm big fans of both and I'm one of the biggest Brooks backers on the board. However, my general rule is that I won't include a player unless they had at least four seasons of service with a team, and neither Jefferson nor Brooks played with San Diego for more than three years.

I think it's a judgment call between Garrett, Anderson, and James. Maybe Miller should've been on there ahead of them, too, but I remember Garrett as being a well-regarded starter for them and ... and I just thought Anderson was cool. He makes the list by virtue of that one play where he vaulted in from the five yard-line over the top of the defender.

Alworth, Joiner, Seau (mainly because I can't stand Fouts, but this was a difficult choice to make)
