The Franchise QBs: Final rankings of top signal-callers in Chiefs history

We've identified the top all-time quarterbacks for every NFL team and asked our NFL Nation beat reporters -- and you, the fans -- to help us determine each signal-caller's place in franchise history.

What follows is the final ranking of the top quarterbacks in Kansas City Chiefs history, both from our NFL Nation reporter and our final fan polling.

NFL Nation ranking:

1. Len Dawson

2. Joe Montana

3. Trent Green

4. Alex Smith

5. Bill Kenney

The one thing that jumps out about this list is that none of these five quarterbacks were drafted by the Chiefs. Each arrived in Kansas City after being discarded by another team, which tells the story of the Chiefs' inability to draft and develop their own quarterbacks. One surprise is Montana at No. 2. He played only two seasons for the Chiefs and wasn't spectacular in either, though he did quarterback the Chiefs into the 1993 AFC Championship Game. Elvis Grbac is an omission. He had a big season for the Chiefs in 2000. -- Adam Teicher
