A Look At The Kansas City Chiefs All-Time Greats

Pro Football Reference is an excellent resource that, like Football Outsiders, provides a bounty of untraditional statistics intended to accurately identify trends throughout NFL history.

This particular chart was created from the Approximate Value method.  The idea behind it is to determine the best all-time players for each club.  The folks over at PFR can explain it better than my 5AM, caffeine-less mind can right now so head on over there and check it out.

Halfbacks and fullbacks were lumped into one category along with tight ends and receivers.

Today we'll look at the offense and soon enough I'll post the defense.

QB Len Dawson 98
RB Priest Holmes 69
RB Ed Podolak 54
RC Tony Gonzalez 94
RC Fred Arbanas 66
RC Otis Taylor 65
RC Henry Marshall 53
T Jim Tyrer 95
T John Alt 68
G Will Shields 95
G Ed Budde 77
C Jack Rudnay 62

In an ideal situation, I'd like to see Dwayne Bowe and Brandon Albert up on that list someday.  Other than that, I don't think we have any offensive players on the current team that will warrant consideration.

What other current players have a shot to replace one of the all-time greats on there?
