RIP, Len Dawson

+

We have a vigorous back-and-forth dialog with Chiefs fans, but I'd like to call a timeout for a second to pay tribute to Len Dawson. Dawson and his team won the NFL Championship the year after Joe Namath and the Jets, and his teams were fun to watch, regardless of whether you were a Chiefs or Broncos fan. I used to follow him, maybe because he went to Purdue, as I did quite a number of years later. And, he's one of 3 men in the Hall of Fame twice - both as a player and as an announcer/analyst. So let's take a moment away from the spirited rivalry and recognize a good player from one of the earlier days in the NFL. Godspeed, Len Dawson.
