We should give a tip of the hat to Joe Cullen who has revitalized that DL which is tied for fourth in sacks. Also, Brendan Daly whose work with the young LBers is bearing fruit and Dave Merritt with that young secondary. This defense is coming around.

AND here is the next set

51) 1982 3-6 (The strike year – Levy’s last year)
52) 1975 5-9 (Lenny’s last year)
53) 1985 6-10 (Mackovic with Kenney)
54) 1978 4-12 (Levy’s first and Livingston’s last)
55) 1988 4-11-1 (Gansz last)
56) 2007 4-12 (Herm and Huard)
57) 1974 5-9 (Stram’s last year)
58) 1976 5-9 (Livingston and Wiggin)
59) 2009 4-12 (Haley’s first and the appearance of Matt Cassel)
60) 1987 4-11 (Gansz’s first year)

For you young people out there, you can start to understand why the mid seventies to late eighties were rough and why Marty became a hero in KC when he arrived.

shame that the strike years of the early 80’s screwed things up vis-a-vis Chiefs and Marv Levy … helluva coach (as evidenced by his time in Buffalo and FOUR straight Super Bowl appearances)

Mahomes is wrong …

Top four would be easy – good arguments for the last six spots.

yah, and I know soooooooooooo many right now want to rank Kelce in that top spot but that, like many other opinions, would be wrong and based (heavily) on “recency bias” (not to mention KC Chiefs bias)

as Nova said, just a matter of time until Kelce (maybe) is the “best ever” but until that happens, TonyG was, and still is, The Man … the GOAT of all NFL TE’s

One would really have to sift thru all the arguments. In no particular order, Tony, Kelce, Gronk and, in my opinion, Kellen Winslow, would have to be the top four. Sharpe and Gates would be battling for the fifth spot. Winslow really revolutionized the position. Kelce and Gronk became the focal point of their offenses, even when the teams had Tyreek and Moss. Tony had run-first coaches, a coach that had his success with a receiver dominated offense, and a motley crew of quarterbacks along the way. He was a reliable red zone target and a first down machine. Kelce with his speed and Gronk with his power have taken over multiple games. Tony never had that level of pure domination. One can argue that he was never given a chance.

sift all you want to, TonyG still ends up as the bestest, softest, finest and most wonderful TE Flour you could ever bake with

Tony was double and triple teamed all the time, not to mention double-and triple held on most plays … (sorry, that’s me being “argumentative” and I shouldn’t be)

yah, you have Top 6 listed and for real, one COULD go on and on about ALL those guys (and they were ALL good, and Kelce still is, of course)

how lucky we Chiefs fans have been to have seen not only Kelce but TonyG in action for years and years … spoiled we are, and hopefully appreciative of all the good times

Cordarrelle Patterson, NFC ST player of the week – I don’t remember whether it was Eafox or Saints sounding out our opinions on acquiring him last off-season but hindsight might make it seem like a missed useful opportunity. This underscores the amazing fact that so many rookies are seeing lots of snaps and experiencing growing pains on the field all the while the Chiefs enjoy the view from atop the AFC.

Saints might have said something as well but I did mention interest in Patterson. Thought he would provide big bang for the buck.
