Remembering Joe Delaney: C@tching Up With The Chiefs

 12 replies

We catch up with the Chiefs on Twitter and honor Joe Daleney on the 36th anniversary of his tragic passing.

Weekends are slow, but we’re trying to keep something coming at you every few hours. So today its time for another quick peak back at the week for the Chiefs via their Twitter account.

On this day, 36 years ago, Kansas City Chiefs running back Joe Delaney tragically lost his life as he jumped into a pond to rescue 3 drowning children despite the fact that he didn’t know how to swim. One child survived while Delaney and the other two children were lost that day. He was 24 years old.

I haven’t talked to RememberDelaney in years. That’s a good question. He was great to discuss things with.

Joe Delaney, what an amazing football player and an amazing man. If you haven”t seen this, it’s well worth your time. Especially if you’re unfamiliar with his story.

Man, I was just thinking about Joe Delaney a couple days ago. I’d forgotten it happened this early in the summer.
That guy was a beast on the field & a gentleman off it. I wish, more than anything, that he’d had chance to be there for his wife & to see his children grow up. And I surely would have loved to see what he’d have done with another 7/10 years in the league.

It might sound funny saying this about a punter, but I really hope Colquitt gets a Super Bowl ring. He had to endure so many horrible seasons; many seasons where he was the best player on the team. I know he carries a pretty hefty price tag for a punter, but it would be perfect to see him end his career by staying in KC and earning a ring or two.

I had to compare some stats with colquitt and Jerrel Wilson

Wilson
1072 punts for 46, 138 yards – 3 pro Bowls

Colquitt 1076 for 48, 267 yards- 2 Pro Bowls

I thought Jerrel Wilson was the best punter in Chiefs history, the stats show I was wrong. I’m not sure if the ball were different back in the day, Wilson was still a hell of a punter.

I’m hoping Colquitt makes the team and gets a ring too.

Hefty paycheck, sure, but as I recall WRT his last contract signing Colquitt took less money that he could’ve gotten elsewhere to stay with the Chiefs. So there’s that. He deserves a ring as much as anyone on the team, and coaches, too.

I need Mitch Holthus to give me a pep talk every morning. I’d be way more productive at work.
