Chiefs are impressed with Tyson Jackson, who must adjust to yet another new system -

"There were a lot of qualities that set Hank Stram apart from other coaches," said former Chiefs star defensive back Emmitt Thomas, now the team’s secondary coach. "His honesty. His intelligence. His sense of fairness. His caring nature. Coach Stram was the kind of a guy who knew you, your family and everybody who meant something to you. And he had a presence."

As much as Stram may be best recognized as the stocky, well-dressed motivator roaming the sidelines for the Kansas City Chiefs in the late 1960s and early '70s, his best work often was done behind the scenes.

He was seen as a player who could have a huge impact in the NFL but never lived up to expectations. Dorsey may be best suited as a 4-3 defensive tackle and could have been miscast as a 3-4 defensive end with the Chiefs.

Chiefs History: New Stadiums and the AFL
League attendance is often a topic of conversation when determining the hold the games have on the local populace.
