2. Trent Green, QB
The Chiefs struggled at the quarterback position following Len Dawson’s retirement. The Chiefs gave Trent Green a chance after a short stint with the Rams and he gave the Chiefs what they needed on offense as he started 80 consecutive games in his first five years with the Chiefs, which is a franchise record.
Green helped give the Chiefs the best offense in the NFL from 2002 to 2005. Alongside Priest Holmes, Tony Gonzalez and a historically stout offensive line, the Chiefs offense was a nightmare for opposing defensive coordinators. Green’s role was instrumental in making the Chiefs offense one of the best.
Green finished second in passing yards each season from 2003 to 2005 while finishing in the top 10 in touchdown passes in 2003 and 2004. Had a concussion in Week 1 of the 2006 season not occurred, Green could have posted bigger numbers with the Chiefs. His two Pro Bowls were both came while playing for the Chiefs.
Green finished his career with the second most passing yards and touchdown passes in Chiefs history and owns the longest and only 99-yard touchdown pass in Chiefs history. Green is still involved with the franchise as the preseason color announcer.
