The latest Sunday Blitz over at the National Football Post features a list of Dan Pompei's favorite Seniors Candidates for the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton, Ohio, and two former Chiefs warranted mentioning. Pompei specifically lists Curley Culp and Johnny Robinson among his favorites and says the future might eventually include in the Hall.

Culp was a nose tackle who some say helped to invent the 3-4 defense under Hank Stram. He's a member of the Chiefs Hall of Honor and spent seven years in Kansas City before playing several more years for the Oilers. He's a five time Pro Bowler. Pompei writes, "The former Chiefs and Oilers noseguard changed the game, ushering in the advent of 3-4 defenses and forcing teams to find more physical centers."

Robinson played both halfback and safety for the Chiefs, but it's his work in the defensive backfield that earned him admission into the Chiefs Hall of Fame. His 57 career interceptions are second on the team's all-time list and he earned 7 trips to the Pro Bowl.

This year, Pompei writes that he voted for two others, Jack Butler and Dick Stanfel. Perhaps as early as next season, Culp and/or Robinson can join other Chiefs in the Hall of Fame.
