Remember Andy Heck?

Several sources are reporting that the Chiefs will be hiring former Jacksonville offensive line coach Andy Heck for the same position in Kansas City.

Heck, who has been with the Jaguars since 2003, was a fine NFL player with Seattle, Chicago and Washington during 1989-2000.

My one memory of Heck? He was Seattle's left tackle on the day in 1990 when the Chiefs' Derrick Thomas set the NFL record with seven sacks in one game. Heck was not the only one beaten by Thomas that day, but his is the name I remember.

Heck will remember the Seahawks beating the Chiefs 17-16 on a last-second touchdown pass when Dave Krieg wriggled out of what looked to be Thomas' eighth sack.
