2. Trent Green
Green is the most prolific quarterback in franchise history, playing on one of the best offenses the league has ever seen. Green came to the Chiefs after playing for the Washington Redskins and St. Louis Rams in 2001 and became a key figure until leaving the team following the 2006 season.
Green was able to reach the Pro Bowl in both 2003 and 2005. He led Kansas City to the No. 2 seed in the AFC playoffs in the former season, throwing for 4,039 yards with 24 touchdowns. Green actually had his best campaign in 2004, throwing for a career-best 4,591 with 27 touchdowns. However, the Chiefs stumbled and couldn’t reach the playoffs due to an atrocious defense.
For anybody who watched that era of Chiefs football, they know how exciting it was. The defense certainly dragged everyone down, but the offense was a gem. With Green, Priest Holmes, Willie Roaf, Will Shields, Brian Waters and Tony Gonzalez, it was something to behold.
All told, Green ended up throwing for 21,459 yards in his six Kansas City seasons with 162 touchdowns and 114 interceptions.
