Christian Okoye

This is what most Christian Okoye plays looked like, his hand extended and the defender on their back. I loved this guy. Nicknamed the Nigerian Nightmare he was a force to be wreckenned with. I was really into the Chiefs as a kid so watching him bull through the Raiders was a joy.

I'll always remember the hit Steve Atwater put on him. That was a doozy. Immediate respect for Atwater from that point on. When I made a big hit in the backyard I started shouting, "Atwater!"
