Arrowhead Addict is asking Chiefs Nation to select their favorite Chiefs player in an NCAA style bracket tournament and we are proud today to announce “Derrick Thomas’ Elite Eight”
The tournament started off last week, with 32 Chiefs players seeded and squaring off in head to head matchups.
The Sweet 16 voting was pretty cut and dry with no real upsets or close matches. Things figure to get a little more interesting in the Elite 8.
Check out the full results after the jump.
#1 Jamaal Charles d. #17 Wallace Gilberry (100%-0%)
#8 Brandon Carr d. #9 Shaun “Perv” Smith (83%-17%)
#4 Matt Cassel d. #13 Glenn Dorsey (83%-17%)
#5 Dwayne Bowe d. #12 Brian Waters (89%-11%)
#2 Brandon Flowers d. #15 Branden Albert (91%-9%)
#7 Eric Berry d. #10 Tony Moeaki (74%-26%)
#3 Tamba Hali d. #14 Dustin Colquitt (100%-0%)

Derrick Thomas’ Elite 8 Matchups:
#1 Jamaal Charles vs. #8 Brandon Carr
#4 Matt Cassel vs. #5 Dwayne Bowe
#2 Brandon Flowers vs. #7 Eric Berry
#3 Tamba Hali vs. #6 Derrick Johnson
While the offense has the #1 overall seed, the defense has the most remaining members left. Five members from the starting defense remain while only three offensive players are left.
Voting for the Elite 8 is only for two days so make sure you get your votes in now. Voting ends on the 31st and the Final Four voting will get going on April Fools’ Day!
What do you think Addicts? Are you happy with the top eight? Will there be any upsets this round?
