So, tell me more about Joe Delaney. I've read that he set a couple of franchise records that remained in place for nearly 20 years, and he was the AFC Rookie of the Year? Did anyone see him play? How do you think he would have done with a longer career? Hall of Fame?

I predict this will be a good thread.

Looking forward to some of the old schoolers weighing in on one of the greats to wear a Chiefs jersey.

I saw his whole career. He was short but thick. Explosive fast. If you made Thomas Jones a little shorter, and gave him Charles' speed, add the ability to cut on a dime, you have Delaney. I don't remember throwing to him a lot out of the backfield, we'd have to go back and look at his receiving stats. Charles is the closest thing to him in a long time. He could break one at any time with just a crack of daylight.

And of course he was taken from us right as his career was starting to blossom.

For him to have set franchise records and win ROY before even starting to "blossom"? Can you just imagine?

If Joe had one small opening, he would burst through it. He was small and unbelievably fast, but also tough. He was like our own Walter Payton, only faster. He passed away as a true hero giving his life to save a drowning child. I recalled how I felt when learning of his tragic death when DT passed.

He was super fast, elusive, and had good vision. In a game against Denver his rookie year he broke a 75 yard run for a TD that was nulified by a penalty. Two plays later he did the same thing from 82 yards.

THAT was when I knew we had something special.

Delaney was 5' 10" and weighed in at 184lbs. He was damn fast and his cuts were incredible. They didn't throw to him as much as you see a back grab balls these days, mostly because he was a beast when you put the rock in his hand.

In 81 he caught 22 passes for 246 yards (11.2 avg) and in 82 he only caught 11 passes for 53 yards, but he was suffering from an eye injury too.

The guy set four franchise records that stood for 20+ years. IMHO, the guy had future Hall Of Famer written all over him.
Quote:
Following Delaney's record-setting 193 yard rushing performance against the Houston Oilers on November 15, 1981, Oilers defensive end (and future Pro Football Hall of Famer) Elvin Bethea was quoted in saying: “ I've played against the best–O.J. Simpson, Gale Sayers, Walter Payton and (Delaney) ranks right up there with them. He is great with a capital G.

Worst day of my life as a Chief's fan was the day Joe Delaney died. Don't know if we'll ever see another Chief RB like him.

Guy was unbeleivable. The very first Chiefs game I ever saw in person I got to see him return a kick for a TD. He no doubt would have had an awesome career.

I "like" the Official NFL Shop page on facebook. They had a status about approaching 37,000 "likes" on their page. In honor of that, they asked who people thought the greatest player was to wear the number 37. I, of course, immediately named Joe Delaney. Others were saying Rodney Harrison, Deion Sanders, Shaun Alexander, Doak Walker, etc. It just made me wonder how much more well-known Delaney would have been, how great he would have been, had he had more time. I read some stuff, but just wondered how people on here felt and what they thought.

And thanks for the rep. Makes up for Saul's neg rep saying "stop"...lol.

...when JD ran, he didn't run like other players... it was like he had another gear and he ran so fast and so smoothly, it was nothing short of poetry in motion...it's hard to explain, but you know it when you see it.
