This may have been done before, but, with the recent greatest Chief poll, I got to wondering who your FAVORITE Chief of all time is. Like I said, sorry if this has been done before. And I would do a poll, but I'd rather just hear your opinions.

Mine is Derrick Thomas.

If you want to tell why, that would be great, too. I just think this would be a good way for me to learn more about the Chiefs.

Derrick Thomas is gonna be the answer from everybody, so I'll spice it up a litte. I'll go with James Hasty. Yes, James Hasty. He's actually my 2nd or 3rd favorite. When I was little I used to like DT, Neil Smith, and Hasty for some reason. I don't really remember why, but I remember that I did. That is the reason for the 5840. 584090 is too long and looks gay. As for current players, I'm sure there might be a few different answers there..Trent, Priest, Tony, Shields, etc. But, one player that I like probably a lot more than most fans is Eddie Kennison. I've never really had that big of a problem with him. Yeah, he's dropped some big passes, but I still think he's helpful in that offense.

I'm not sure if I've ever had a favorite Chief. I've always just rooted for the team, never had any real favorite players. Over the years, I've had a Montana, Grbac, Gonzalez, and Dante Hall jersey, but I don't know if I'd say I had a "favorite" player.

Actually, I think Derrick Johnson might have a chance. Simply because I followed him in college, he caught my attention and I'd specifically tune in to watch Texas play just to see him, and I'd think "man wouldn't it be awesome if we could get a player like that".... only, we actually got him...haha. So who knows.

That's a tough call, real tough call. I think I'd give the edge to the MNF game because it was a national TV game first of all. You had maybe the two greatest QB's ever.... and all the action happened at the end of the game, where Dante's return happened with a few minutes left. The MNF game went back and forth, tied at the end of the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd quarter... then the unnamed kicker missed a gimme, made up for it by hitting one late in the game, Broncos fumble, looked like we had the game put away, Marcus fumbled, Denver marched down, high drama with a TD getting overturned by the refs... then Denver comes right back and scores despite having only 10 guys on the field.... then after all that insanity, Montana marching down all the way down the field methodically in just over a minute, finishing them off with just seconds left.

Eddie Podolak

His play in the longest game in history holds a place in my heart;

http://www.miamidolphins.com/pressbox/pressreleases/pressreleases.asp?contentID=2253

"The main thing is the disappointment," said Podolak, who played the game of his career in amassing 350 all-purpose yards (85 rushing, 110 receiving, and 155 on kick returns). "Because my life has gone on, the sting from losing is obviously not as acute as it was during the time I was still playing, but it was very difficult to get over during the years I was playing.

Skip Towne

EJ Holub. He was such a good player they wouldn't let him go when his knees went out. They moved him to center and he kept playing. I've never heard of anything like that before or since.

Joe Montana

Sure he came to the good guys in the twilight of his career and he'll always be a 49er when all is said and done but I loved his confident yet, calm and low key leadership.

It was a wet dream to see a QB of his caliber playing for the Chiefs. Up until Green, DeBerg may be an exception, all we had was a bunch of weanies and losers.

Honerable Mention:

DT
Gonzo
Hasty
Priest
Shields
Ted Popson....

I think a shorter list wouldl be Chiefs I've hated.

Len Dawson.

My dad being a urologist has gotten to really know the guy by asking him to speak at various prostate cancer conventions. He has gratiously accepted and as a result, I've really gotten to know the guy.

Plus the fact that he was a big part of the Chiefs SB season makes me like him even more.

The game I want is the season opener vs. Oakland, not sure exactly what season. He had 6 sacks, including a safety, against the great Jeff George.

I was outa town, and had our recorder set. I watched the game at a sports bar in some little town in W. Oklahoma (don't ask). This place closes at 8PM, but my wife and I were still spending $, had on our Chiefs gear, and the owner told us 'No way I'm asking you to leave, we'll stay open till the game's over.' Ended up giving us a couple free appetizers late in the game. Very cool guy!

So we get home ready to watch the game all over, and we had thunderstorms over the weekend, knocked out power briefly, and lost the program on the VCR. Still ticks me off to this day. I would LOVE to get my hands on that game tape!

Otis Taylor was a one-man highlight reel, and was my first hero.

Deron Cherry was what I envisioned myself as when I was in high school - not the best athlete on the field, but a smart, ball-hawking player who was always in position to make a play.

I must say, though, that Albert Lewis on special teams brought the biggest grin to my face ever. You'd see the ball snap on a punt, and in a split second you'd see Lewis flying around that corner and laying out, and as you blurted out, "HE'S GOT IT!", you heard a thump and then chaos would ensue.

I've never really had a favorite player, either. I've just always rooted for the whole team. My favorite player, Chief of not, was Montana (like fraz). I was exstatic when we traded for him. I couldn't believe my favorite player was joining my favorite team. If there is a player that comes close to being my "favorite", it would be Green though. If every player we had were like him, Priest, Gonzo, Surtain, we'd be in great shape.

Overall, though, I just root for the whole team.

It would be like seeing GoChiefs beat up a bully for picking on nerd then winning over the ladys hearts followed by saying somthing intellegent then walking away a winner instead of shitting all over himself again.

Get some old game tapes of his performances and you will know. He called safeties before they happened, he hammered Elway into the ground like he was a fence post, he stripped the ball from QB's as he sacked them like they had a brifecase with a million dollars in it. He would take a game over by himself. That is why he stood out.

I will always see Montana as a 49er.
What? Montana played for the 49ers?

I wonder what makes DT stand out?
Could it be that he had more illegitimate children than anyone else. Maybe many of these people were related to him?

My favorites are:
1. Trent Green. Hands down, best team player on this team. He takes pay cuts and the heat for things not his fault. He gives back to the community and heavily. He isnt a half bad player either :p
2. Brian Waters Classy guy, I hope we keep him. If King Carl's bullshit leads him away, I will throw CP into my pit of eternal damnation.
3. Derrick Thomas. I cried the day he died. Then again, I was young, and he was my hero at the time.

I love the team players, especially ones that are the best at what they do.

If he is the player that everyone seems to think he is, I will go out on a limb and say Derrick Johnson. At least I haven't been this excited about a football player in a long, long time.

Willie Lanier.

He was, hands down, the hardest hitting LB in Chiefs history.

First let me say that DT was a very good player in my book.

It was a very sad day when he did not use common sense and wear a seatbelt when he was speeding on an icy road. That lapse in judgement or outright decision not to follow the law cost him dearly.

The hero status he has on the field should be tempered with the fact that he was not the best in all factes of the game, his run coverage was less than great.

His off field activities were also something that should "lower" his exhaulted position in the community. He used poor judgement in the friends he chose to surround himself with. Like many pro players he was taken advantage of by his "friends". There were documented times when he discovered theft of his things and money, he wrote it off to a friend needing it more than him.

He fathered way too many children out of wedlock, which might not be an offense to use to cruicify him, but a combination of a few kids that may or maynot have been taken care of during his life was amplified after his death when his estate had to be auctioned of to come up with enough money to provide for "some" of his kids. Others got nothing. His family basically was left without.

Like I said, DT was a very good football player, but his overall life makes me doubt the "hero" title so many has placed on him.

Well if you are going to inventory his life, then lets not forget all his off field charity work he did. He was a tremendous asset to the community and provided thousands if not millions of dollars to those less fortunate than himself, which IMHO should count for something. :thumb:

My favorite Chiefs player growing up was always Dan Saleamua. DT was a close second, but ol' Manu Manu the Slender was always my man.

I've still got a replica #97 jersey in my basement somewhere.

I don't want to make you think that I'm slamming him, he just wasn't the poster boy for the hero image.

Very hard call. Unfortunately, I wasn't around to see Bobby Bell, Willie Lanier, Buch Buchannan, etc., or I may have a different choice. My favs include Deron Cherry, Tony Richardson, Will Shields... But I'm gonna have to go with Joe Delaney. It seems like just yesterday when I was emulating him in my parents' front yard. I'd pretend that a stick or something was the front pylon, and I was Delaney racing around the end on a sweep. Over and over and over again.
