Count his Kansas City Chiefs coach, Marty Schottenheimer, among them. Mixing tears and laughter, Schottenheimer offered this tender remembrance and celebration of Thomas and his induction on Saturday in Canton, Ohio: "I used to call Derrick into my office to reprimand him for something. I couldn't get halfway through it. He'd throw that big grin on me. I'd say, 'Aw, just get out of here!' I knew he didn't need a lashing. He would always get things right for the team. A terrific young man. I think of him frequently.
