5). FB-Kimble Anders, Houston, 1991–Kimble Anders went to 3 straight Pro-Bowls 1995, 1996, 1997, including 2 teams that finished 13-3 and earned the no. 1 playoff seed in the AFC.
Picking Anders was a close call over long-time Chiefs great Tony Richardson at the same position. Richardson had a longer NFL career and played for more dominant offenses. I picked Anders because he went to more pro-bowls for Kansas City (3 vs. 2) and versatility.
Anders was a weapon running the football, catching the football, and he was a terrific lead blocker (though I think Richardson was better). Overall, Anders rushed for 2261 yards on for 4.6 ypc, and 369 catches for 2829 yards (7.7 ave) for the Chiefs.
Late in his 10-year Kansas City career, Anders became the no. 1 halfback—but tore his ACL after rushing for 181 yards in 2 games as the team’s primary ball carrier.
