Best Non-QB Passers In Chiefs History

As we head toward the start of the 2011 NFL season, we are going to throw in a few tidbits that we’ve uncovered in the months that we waited out the NFL owners’ lockout.

Always in the search for the unusual, we’ll bring you some stats that you won’t see anywhere else. When you see some of the numbers you’ll probably come to the conclusion that no one else would bother to research these things, but we promise to go the extra mile in our coverage of the Chiefs.

Our first installment is the top 10 list of non-quarterback passers in team history. That would be the running backs, wide receivers, tight ends, punters … every position player that threw a pass during a regular season game.

To qualify for our list, a non-quarterback had to have thrown more than a single pass. In team history there are 20 players other than a QB that have attempted one pass, but we are leaving them out of this equation. Among that group, there are seven that completed their pass: WR Carlos Carson, TE Tony Gonzalez, WR Mark Bradley, P Louie Aguiar, WR Sylvester Morris, RB-TE Bert Coan and RB Theotis Brown. The throws by Bradley, Carson and Coan went for touchdowns.

Here are the top 10 throwers at other positions. We’ve lined them up on the basis of their passer rating:

    The Bradley-to-Thigpen TD pass was one of the fanciest trick plays I’ve ever seen. The way Thigpen sold his role of not being involved at all was just incredible.

    And how often do you see a QB CATCHING a TD pass?

    Mark Bradley?

    Sorry KC_Guy, it wouldn’t let me see your post before I posted. I agree. Based on the stats show, he must have over-looked Bradley.

    NM again, I guess he did only throw one pass. Geesh!

    Didnt marcus allen throw a td pass against the steelers on monday night football? I remember the pass looked like a shot duck, but it got the job done.

    Marcus Allen had 2 passing TD’s in 1997. 1 against the 49ers and dont remember the other. Maybe it was Pit?

    Bobby Bell. He could do it all. He would have been a QB, but being African-American prevented him from that opportunity in the old AFL and NFL. A better athlete never existed on the Chiefs or any other team. I believe he was a QB in college.
