    Someone at work brought up a good point.

    The Chiefs have really good players, even when we suck. Not many teams might be as fortunate.

    Since 1970, the Chiefs have the most players who have won the Walter Payton Man of the Year Award.

    Those as followed.
    1972 - Willie Lanier
    1973 - Len Dawson
    1993 - Derrick Thomas
    2003- Will Shields
    2009- Brian Waters

    That makes 5, if you can't count. One more than Chicago. To put this into prosepctive, the Steelers have won 6 SB's. They have 4 winners on their team. Remember our only victory in 1970.
    Dallas, 5 wins. 2 award winners. Patriots, 5 Wins, 0 award winners.

    I'm just saying, this team only has one SB win, and hasn't been a dominating team...and yet, we still pump out great players with great attitudes.

    Way to go Red and Gold!

    That is something to be very proud of. Go Chiefs. I do believe we are one of the classiest organizations in the NFL.

    How could
    1972 - Willie Lanier
    1973 - Len Dawson
    both win the Walter Payton award when Walter had not played in the NFL yet?

    They may have won Man of the Year award but it wasn't named after Walter Payton then I guess .

    Yeah that's what I as thinking. They could've won some sort of award like Man Of The Year (As you mentioned) and then named the Walter payton Award afterwards.

    Yep. It was simply The NFL Man of the Year award. They named it after Walter Payton when he died in '99.
