Entering his 14th NFL seasons in 2007, Green was named to the Pro Bowl following the 2003 and 2005 campaign and established a single-season team record with 4,591 passing yards in 2004. He is the only quarterback in Kansas City history to throw a "perfect game," registering a 158.3 rating vs. Detroit (12/14/03).
