The Gonzo Lounge>So you think you know Chiefs pass rushers?

As you undoubtedly know, sacks became an official NFL statistic in 1982. Before that year, we have nothing but legend and mystery.

However, Pro football reference now says that they went back to 1960 and did research to build sack stats back to that year for the NFL. So if you trust those numbers, we now ostensibly have sack statistics for the entire Chiefs' history.

The data is behind a paywall, but fortunately so am I. So let's test your knowledge. I'll post questions periodically and let's see how Chiefsplanet answers them.

Note: all data refers to players' careers with the Chiefs only. If someone comes from another team or goes to another team, their stats on those teams don't count. It's the Chiefs, the whole Chiefs, and nothing but the Chiefs.

Question #1 is easy. List the top ten Chiefs in terms of career sacks.

Culp would probably be in the top 10, Tamba would be another good guess. I would think Smith would be up there as well. Buck was pretty beat up the last couple of years of his time and I don't remember him being much of a force.

Mr. Hali does indeed make the list, and Mr. Smith is pretty high on the list. Mr. Culp is close, but he's ranked #13. Mr. Buchanan is ranked #16 with his long era of production.

1. Justin Houston - .77 sacks per game
2. Derrick Thomas - .75
3. Jared Allen - .70
4.
5. Neil Smith - .62
6. Dan Williams - .56
7.
8.
9. Tamba Hali - .51
10.

He would have had 100-120 sacks easily on a better defense. He was a beast in his day. Super strong and quick for a guy not really that big. :-)

I followed him a lot as a kid because he was a Jersey guy

Steadman let the team get old and Schaaf didn't do much better. C'mon, man -- Mike Livingston as your QB? Then Schaaf picks Todd Blackledge out of the QB pool?

Mr. Still, one of my favorite players ever, is indeed on the list, which is pretty darn impressive for a 3-4 defensive end.

1. Justin Houston - .77 sacks per game
2. Derrick Thomas - .75
3. Jared Allen - .70
4.
5. Neil Smith - .62
6. Dan Williams - .56

An excellent guess. Our pass-deflector extraordinaire also produces sacks efficiently.

1. Justin Houston - .77 sacks per game
2. Derrick Thomas - .75
3. Jared Allen - .70

5. Neil Smith - .62
6. Dan Williams - .56

Our remaining guys played roughly 50 years apart if you need a hint.

Dee Ford is the more recent name, I'd guess. Maybe Frank Clark.

The older name maybe someone like Buck Buchanan or something? I know very little of Chiefs prior to the 90s.
