Wanted to start a Tournament involving the 12 best Kansas City Chiefs teams in their history to determine which Chiefs team was the fans all-time best (or favorite). Dallas Texans teams do NOT qualify.

Here's how it works.

For this post, we'll need the 4 Chiefs teams who are most deserving of receiving byes. The 4 Chiefs teams which compile the greatest votes receive the byes (please save the 1977 Chiefs vote for some other time, k?) and the seeds 1-4

Once that is decided... (let's make D-Day, June 6, the end of the vote for Chiefs byes), we will then have a separate post to round out the field, which 8 of the remaining Chiefs teams deserve to qualify for this Tournament?

In exactly 1 week (June 10), we start with qualifying matchups, to be done in 4 separate polls (5 vs 12, 6 vs 11, 7 vs 10, and 8 vs 9).
3 days per round to decide who moves on. Also, look to explain why you cast your vote like you did.

If all goes according to plan, the Chiefs Championship Game will be held right around the 4th of July.. with the winner earning the crown of best (or favorite) Chiefs team ever.

I'll get this kick-started:

Byes Go To (in no particular order)

1997 Chiefs
1995 Chiefs
1993 Chiefs
1969 Chiefs

1. 1969 Chiefs-they won the SB, can't go much higher than that!
2. 1966 Chiefs-They got there! Lombardi had a strangle hold on the world of football at the time
3. 1993 Chiefs-any team led by the best QB ever will be downright hard to beat and Joe's Chiefs sure were
4. 1997 Chiefs-1st in least points allowed and 5th in most points scored..nuff said

Giving it some thought, this is going to be fun!

There's going to be at least 3 decent Chiefs teams left out in the cold come Tournament time.

1969 Chiefs: 3
1993 Chiefs: 3

C'mon guys and gals.

Humor me here. What's wrong?

I'm sure old-timers want to bring a lot of Stram fans into the mix, whereas we got new-timers who don't know much better.

Today I took out one of the teams I was going to have to round out the field and replaced it with a Chiefs team I didn't realize was that good.

But, it would look silly just having 3 votes, don't ya think?

1969 - they won it all (rather easily as a matter of fact - blasted those Vikes!)

95? Bono?! LOL

93? Montana, but no receivers (none much above average at any rate)

97? If Gannon started through the playoffs, we might have had our second championship... This is the 2nd best KC team IMO

actually, 93 should be first (I'm biased though, I followed Montana even when he was a 49er, and was thankful to get to see him play with my team, the Chiefs)

Adam,

Kinda tossed here on this one... I too like the 69,93,95,97 teams...but gotta give the 69 team the top spot for taking it all ! That defense we had was tuff!

The Montana era (93) had alot of hope and turned sour in Buffalo second.....95 (Bono (**&^%@$^) was lead by a great defense ...followed by the 97 team as the same.
