The KC Chiefs have been a franchise since 1963 (not counting the days of the Dallas Texans) giving them over 50 years of memories and players that will never be forgotten.

From NFL Hall of Famer Willie Lanier to future Hall of Famer Tony Gonzalez, every man on these lists has a spot in Chiefs history.

Today, we’re continuing our segment in which we count down the top 5 players from each decade, focusing on the 1990′s. Before Marty Schottenheimer and Carl Peterson arrived, the Chiefs franchise was a disaster.

From 1970-1979, the Chiefs posted a record of 60-79, including three consecutive seasons with just five wins. From 1980-1989, they posted a record of 58-76, giving the Chiefs two decades of losing football. (source Footballdb.com)

That all changed, thanks to a new head coach, a new GM, and a rich plethora of talent in 1989.

The 90′s is a legendary time for Chiefs football so this list wasn’t easy to compile. To begin, simply click “next” or use the arrow keys on your keyboard.

    I forget sometimes just good Dale Cater was a Chief. Maybe because of all the issues he had at the end of his career block that out. He was fantastic for several years.
