The Lounge>Chiefs All-Decade Team - Running Backs
Rain Man 11:08 AM 02-14-2020
With the end of the decade, it's time for us to select our all-decade team for the 2010s. Credit to Direckshun for the idea; I'm just implementing it.

Here are the rules:

1. I'll put up lists of position groups one at a time.

2. Each list will contain guys who had at least one notable stat line in their career. I'll generally put them in descending order of some key stat.

3. The stats will contain ONLY their body of work between 2010 and 2019 for the Chiefs. No pre-2010 stats and no stats for other teams.

4. The number of roster spots will be the same as the number of roster spots on the 2019 Super Bowl roster for the Chiefs.

5. You can use whatever criteria you want to select the team. It can be total stats for the decade, it can be dominance in a shorter period, it can be playmakers who didn't screw up badly, whatever. It's your call. Feel free to use any criteria not listed in your decision. For example, if you know that Terrance Copper was an amazing blocker, you can build that into your decision.

6. In a subsequent poll we will determine which players are the starters on the all-decade team. In the first round, you're just going to fill the 53-man roster.

Our next position group is running backs. FOUR running backs will make the all-decade team. So pick FOUR running backs. It's your call on whether you want to have a fullback on the team, because I'm lumping them all together.

Administrative note: I cut the list off to include only guys who gained 350 yards or more from scrimmage during the decade, in case you're wondering why Darwin Thompson, Cyrus Gray, etc., aren't listed.

Joe Delaney was not human! Run so good he made teams look like twigs when he ran.

I know you and I are the same generation...can't believe you didn't mention Mike Garrett....Curtis McLinton.....Ed Podolak

Sorry...I just can't vote for Hunt in any way shape or form

Charles. Williams, Sherman and Ware for me.

When it comes to the Super Bowl win getting it for Andy was job 1.

After that you just have to be happy for the guys who toil with very little fanfare and yet do so much for the team. Guys like Schwartz and Colquitt who have played so long and worked hard to get to what we achieved today.

But if I think the guy who best epitomizes Kansas City and its fans it is Anthony Sherman. Hard working...small fan fare but everyone loves him.

That's why he got my vote.

Why did someone not vote for Jamaal Charles? LOL

Over 1100 yards rushing and 200 yards receiving his rookie season, a pro bowler. What a tragedy.

Okay, the all-decade team is Jamaal, Damien, Kareem and Spencer. Ware and Sherman fought an epic battle for that final spot, but Ware ended up pulling away slightly.
