Who is the greatest "modern era" Chiefs - DT, PH or TG?

Since the Chiefs resurgence in 1989, who is the greatest Chief....... Derrick Thomas, Priest Holmes or Tony Gonzalez? Or, someone else?

I'd say Tony G., although Priest Holmes was the funnest to watch and DT has the greatest legend of the three.

I have to go with Tony G as well. DT was special, but so is Tony G, he's going to be the best ever. DT was just one of the best at their respective positions. Sucks that DT's career ended early, but i am giving this one to Tony G.

Priest, as great as he is/was, shouldn't even be in the discussion.

DT made the biggest difference between wins and losses, IMO.

Priest was just really fun to watch. When he had the ball the patience he showed to hit the hole then how fast he actually hit the hole. Plus he was a shifty little bastard. He was a joy to watch no doubt.

So......thats not the point. TG is the best to EVER play at that position.

There are others that are better at DT's position.

I think Priest was an amazing rusher. Simply amazing. Especially behind what was arguably one of the best offensive lines in the NFL. When he ran the stretch, it was poetry.

As for the TG and DT question ... I don't see how you can compare two guys who played in such completely different positions on the field. Both were/are fabulous athletes and heady footballers. But, I think if they had to switch positions, TG would perform better at linebacker than DT would at tight end. So ... TG.

Rush OLB is more important than freaking TE.

TG gets my vote.

His legend grows with every year. His level of play, his character, commitment and leadership have stood the test of time and made him one of the greatest players of his era. I don't care how "important" the TE position is - he is a TE and he is top class - the undisputed best at his position.

This takes nothing away from DT. But he was surrounded by superior talent through much of his career, and his level of play dropped off badly in his last few seasons. RIP.

Priest doesn't belong in the debate. Having said that, he and T-Rich were a blast to watch.

Far more worthy of consideration is Will Shields, IMO.

It appears that TG has the respect of a lot of Planeteers. I don't disagree that he should be considered our best "modern era" player.

But, it makes think about DT's five-year wait for induction into the hall. I wonder if TG will be a first-ballot guy or if his lack of a ring (assuming he won't have one when the time comes) will move him back on the bus?
