As a non-Chief fan, I loved to see Derrick Thomas play. Elected to his first ProBowl in his first season and had 8 ProBowls after that. He is one of the best defensive players in NFL history and his death came way too soon. What I don't understand is why it's taking the HOF morons so damn long to induct him, but then they have yet to put Art Monk in there as well.
Mine too!!!! It seems like in every sport, the HOF always gets something f'd up! Too many old farts voting on these people. Some of these guys voting are almost dead!
He and Okoye are the reasons I became a Chiefs fan. So, yeah, who else could it be? More recently, it was Roaf, then Shields. So I am not going to say, now. Because I don't want to see him retire.
