Default Curley Culp going into HOF as Chief?

I always thought he was more known as an Oiler more than a Chief. However I was born in '69 so have no recollection of his time in KC.

So does the player choose which team he goes in as? If so, I wonder if the fact that the Houston Oilers no longer exist played into his decision to go in as a Chief.

From the Pro Football HoF website (It doesn't work like baseball):

Quote:
An enshrinee, however, is not asked to “declare,” nor does the Hall of Fame “choose” a team under which a new member is enshrined. When elected to the Pro Football Hall of Fame, an individual is recognized for his accomplishments as a player, coach, or contributor.

The player doesn't declare, but it'll be his time as a Chief that will be emphasized by the media and the NFL. It's all back room politics, just like any other large gathering of decision makers. HOF voters don't want to put LYB era Oilers into the HOF. If they didn't have a bias against, Brazile would be in.

Well, I for one am celebrating "Curley Culp Day" at work with my #78 jersey.



I don't know why they would emphasize his Chiefs time over his Oilers years. Most of his recognized accomplishments came after the 1974 trade that brought him here.

AFL All-Star (1969)
Pro Bowl selection (1971, 1975, 1976, 1977, 1978)
1× First-team All-Pro (1975)
2× Second-Team All-Pro (1978, 1979)
1975 NEA Defensive Player of the Year
Super Bowl Champion (IV)

Having grown up as a kid in KC while he was playing, I have never been able to think of him as anything but a Chief. Either way, I would have been just as happy for him.

When I think Curly Culp, I think of the Chiefs first. Maybe I'm old.

Oh.

Yeah.

I am.

Culp was on the winning SB team when with the Chiefs, not the Oilers.

I remember watching the Hank Stram led 1969 SB mythical team with names that jump out of NFL history..........QB Len Dawson, LB Willie "Contact" Lanier, LB Bobby Bell, DT Buck Buchanan, DT Curley Culp, CB Emmitt Thomas and K Jan Stenerud (All HOFers). That defense was unbelievable. It also had a very special name....."The Stack Three Defense," actually the true precursor to the 3-4 defense, where Stram put 2 tackles......huge tackles in those days......... over the center and let loose the linebackers to go crazy. Stram also used his own innovation of the never-before-seen "moving pocket" to keep the opponents' large defensive linemen from reaching Dawson. Like I said before, those were the "real" Culp games that will forever be embedded in my mind. Sorry for the trip through memory lane.

Always a class guy.

Quote:
The Broncos traded Culp to Kansas City in his rookie season — an event that “changed the whole course of my professional football career,” he said Saturday night. Thereafter, Culp crafted a long, productive career as a defensive tackle for the Chiefs (1968-1974), Oilers (1974-1980) and Lions (1980-1981). In 1975, he earned defensive MVP honors from the Newspaper Enterprise Association.

“You know, this is an occasion that has long been in my dreams, and now lives in reality,” Culp said during his induction speech. “I cannot express how glorious a feeling this is for me and my family, who have long hoped with me that this day would come. So to be enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame gives me joy and inspiration that will last the rest of my life.”

In his speech, Culp thanked the late Hank Stram and Bum Phillips — “two of the greatest coaches a player could ever work with,” he said.
