Free agents at that time were guys that were no longer wanted by their previous teams.

Yea, great point.

I am simply pointing out the fact the team did actually have talent when Carl took over, which he and Marty built around.

They won with defense, and 5 or 6 of the players on that defense were drafted or signed prior to '89.

The defense was always good in the 1980s. The offense was god awful, because we never had a top tier QB. One of the reasons Nick the Kick's career stats are so good is because we'd end up kicking field goals in games, then losing 21-9.

Art Still, Deron Cherry, Lloyd Burruss, Kevin Ross, Albert Lewis, Maas, Spani, those guys were all studs. Stephone Paige, Carlos Carson and Delaney for the short time he was here, was about all we had on offense.

The shame for the Chiefs is, when they started to turn it around, there was this guy named Elway that was in the same division....

Interesting since I've heard Walsh say that he wanted Phil Simms and only picked Montana because the Giants took his top QB. He said they tried to trade up for him.

Yeah, our defenses were for the most part pretty decent if I remember right, and we had some very good players. Other than a brief stint in the early 80s, though, our offenses were terrible.

And I must note that the Broncos were a playoff team before Elway arrived.
