As part of a special pregame ceremony, the Kansas City Chiefs will honor the career of former Pro Bowl S Jerome Woods prior to Sunday’s game vs. the San Diego Chargers. Woods spent 10 seasons in a Kansas City uniform, playing 128 games (105 starts) after joining the club as its first-round pick (28th overall) in the ‘96 NFL Draft.

“Jerome Woods played his entire career with the Chiefs, a rare occasion in today’s NFL,” Chiefs President Carl Peterson commented. “He was an excellent first-round draft choice who distinguished himself on and off the field. He was a Pro Bowl player who helped us win many football games over his time here. Chiefs alums were always important to our Founder Lamar Hunt. They continue the legacy he began back in ‘60 when he founded this franchise and the American Football League. We’re delighted to have Jerome with us and look forward to seeing him here at Arrowhead again.”

I mean, Woods had a couple good seasons. He went to the Pro Bowl ONCE. Are we going to be honoring Greg Wesley in five years?

I suppose it's no more pathetic than offering $25 seats to "teachers."

He was an excellent first-round draft choice

Oh...wait...here's the reason.

Meh, in his prime he was ok. Last few years, not so good.

He's worth an honorable mention anyway.

Let's not be cynical and pissy about everything the Chiefs do...

He was a good player for us... that's all.

he was pretty good in his prime. The last few seasons he really seemed to suck balls though. Respectable player nevertheless.

He was a pretty good player for several years. I liked him.

Unfortunately he got sucked into the Grob vortex. But he went out and did his job more often than not.

Maybe because he was constantly injured?

He only played in 33 games in his final 4 seasons.

noa

He played his entire career with us because he couldn't catch on with another team, not out of loyalty to the Chiefs. Let's not blow this out of proportion Carl. You gave him money so he stayed, and when no one else wanted him, he called it a career.

On a side note, I once saw him at Best Buy and then the next day he broke his leg. I haven't been back to that Best Buy since, out of fear of cursing more Chiefs.

I don't have as much problem with honoring Woods as I did with having a guy put into the Ring of Fame who left us to play for the Donkeys.

You're suggesting that Neil Smith should have taken less money to play for the Chiefs?

He was solid for us. Him and Tongue were pretty bad ass when they were around. Its just giving him some props. I dont mind.

Goatse, with your attitude and outlook, I bet you have a hard time saying anything good about anybody. Get off Woods butt. I think its pretty neat to do what they are doing for a guy who was a Chief start to finish.

You need an enema.

What's wrong with honoring a player that played his entire carreer here? Not to mention he was a part of the best safety tandem in the league when him and Tongue were both on the team. It seems that people remember more about the end of his carreer than the prime of his carreer.

In any event, he's not being inducted into the Chiefs HOF, he's just being recognized for being a carreer Chief. Personally, I'm happy to see the Chiefs honor him. He played hard for us and I appreciate it.

If I were able to make the game, he'd get a standing O from me.

Thanks Romy

Quite a bit. Why aren't the Chiefs honoring Bill Kenney?

YOur right. He was a good player. But thats it. He was never anything special. There have been tons of good players in the NFL and who played for the Chiefs. Why honor him in particular when he never really did anything special of note??

I tell you what this is....it's no coincidence that Woods still lives in KC and operates a business here. My guess is the Chiefs will somehow pimp his business.

Let's just hope he doesn't go into the Ring of Fame.

That's the part I'm scratching my head on, we're honoring him at an away game???

Shouldn't he be honored at Arrowhead?

I doubt he goes into the ROF. Why over react over a simple player recognition ceremony? Are you really that small?

No. He was a good player. but never great. Even before the broken leg thing.


Dude didnt even make the Pro-Bowl until his 9th year in the league.

Even then he was thrown a bone and promptly got toasted in one of the biggest games of his career (Jan 04 Colts playoff game)

Thanks.

Don't know why but for some reason I kept thinking it was an away game. And with the MU game as well as our local HS playing for the state championship today, I'm really not interested in the Chiefs right now to bother checking.

Let's have a ceremony for Trezelle Jenkins. Former first round draft pick, he spent his entire career with the Chiefs too.

Carl is such an attention whore. Jerome Woods was a journeyman, cheapens ceremonies for guys like Will Shields who really deserved it.

Not to pick a fight, let's just say I beg to differ. Former Chiefs safeties who were as good or better than Woods:

Gary Barbaro
Johnny Robinson*
Jim Kearney
Martin Bayless
Mark Collins
Deron Cherry*
Lloyd Burruss*
Mike Sensibaugh
Reggie Tongue

*Chiefs Ring of Honor

Don't see why he deserves special recognition.

Who's next? Joe Valerio?

That's pretty much my line of thinking. It's not like they're putting him in the ring of fame or anything.

Woods and Tongue were pretty damn solid. I don't have any problem throwing him a bone. Hasty is still my all time favorite Chiefs DB. He seemed to never be out of position.

Like others, I don't see a problem with honoring Woods. I don't think the honors should merely be reserved for the big stars, but rather for anyone who made a good contribution to the team, or was with the team for 10 years or so. If we want to honor Greg Manusky or John Browning or Henry Marshall, I'm all for it.
