there's bound to be another similar thread, but wtf.

who are the players through the years that you would have as lifetime Chiefs? Not the players like Neil Smith who kinda are, but the guys who played elsewhere first, but really had their run in KC. for me, Priest, and Joe Phillips top the list...

Marcus Allen

Marcus Allen made his name, and had his best years as a Raider.

Mike webster and Marcus allen.

Mike Webster isn't even close.

He spent all but his last season as a HoF center for the Steelers.

When his name comes up in conversation, almost no one outside the most homeristic Chief fan would associate his name to KC.

Didn't he end up living in the Chiefs locker room?

Doesn't fit the premise.

but the guys who played elsewhere first, but really had their run in KC.

Allen really had his run with the Raiders, where he played for 11 years and gained about 75% of his career yardage, and had nearly twice as many TDs.

That story didn't have a happy ending at all. Here is a great read on Mike.

Not even following your own rules.

Dante Hall was drafted by the Chiefs.

Wasn't Bennie the one who got down on all fours and lifted his leg like he was pissing on the opponents sideline? :doh!:

Even people having sex in dumpsters in Witchita thought that was a tad tacky.

Yeah but he only lost 1 game as a starter filling in for Grbac.Id like to have seen how he would have played if we had built around him in his younger days.

Nick Lowery. Cut by 11 other teams before being the most consistent kicker we've ever had.

Even though he was a good running back, I think the majority would agree that the o-line had more to do with his success.

They had a part in his success, but he had the work ethic that is not typically seen in modern sports. When Priest was at KC his style kind of rubbed off on LJ, but it seems like LJ has forgotten all about what it takes to succeed. He used to see the crack in the line and zip through it, now it seems like he waits for a hole a semi could drive through and that isn't happening in KC now days.

He led the league in rushing his first season (2001) when the team was horrible, they didn't know how to use him, and the line was not yet the dominate force it ended up being. Willie Roaf didn't get to KC until 2002 BTW.

I'm pretty sure he's in the HoF as a Chief....

And he hates Al Davis ( http://www.nytimes.com/1992/12/15/sports/pro-football-raiders-allen-irked-at-davis.html ). I'd say that fits as a "life-long Chief."

Oh c'mon, where were they suppose to do it?

But yes, Bennie was a GOD amongst NFL hitmen on kickoffs and punt coverage.....and regrettably had a tendency for peeing on what had been deemed his territory.

OK,

I'll nominate Willie Lanier because I had lunch with him many years ago in Richmond, VA where #63 was working as a stock broker at the time (perhaps still?). Anyway, besides being one of my favorite Chiefs of all time, Willie was great to talk with, get his opinions of the league and share some common ground as it relates to family and problems which I won't go into.

I do recall Willie speaking fondly of the Chief's LB trio at that time of he, Bell, and 'the kid from Notre Dame'. Good stuff.

He didn't go into the Hall as a Chief.

Players that played fro more than one team are enshrined, with their career accomplishments for every team they played for noted.

He made his name and had his run, his best years, and the largest portion of his career numbers as a Raider.
