34. Joe Montana

This is a man who does not need any introduction. Yes, Joe Montana only played for two years with the Chiefs, but he had an enormous impact. The Chiefs had long been a team under head coach Marty Schottenheimer that had a great defense but struggled to score points. With Montana, Kansas City finally had a quarterback who could move the ball.

Montana was pure magic in his final two seasons, leading the Chiefs to the doorstep of the Super Bowl while performing some miracles, beating the Pittsburgh Steelers in a heart-stopper during the 1993 playoffs before capping his Montana Magic with a 1994 victory in the dying seconds over John Elway and the Denver Broncos at Mile High Stadium. Eat it, John.

33. Travis Kelce

Kelce is poised to make a huge leap up these rankings in the next few seasons. The 29-year-old tight end is quickly becoming one of the true superstars in the game today, notching Pro Bowls and All-Pro nominations on an annual basis. In his sixth year with the team, Kelce has already racked up 4,328 yards and 25 touchdowns.

If Kelce can have another four or five dominant seasons, he’ll be a good bet to make the Hall of Fame. Of course, that’s a long way off, but with Mahomes throwing him the ball in Andy Reid’s wide-open offense, anything is suddenly possible.
