The K.C. Chiefs and the Freak Aesthetic

Follow @arrowhead_one   The K.C. Chiefs and The Freak Aesthetic A hundred years ago, you could go down to the traveling carnival side show and be entertained by The Tall Man, The Fire Eater or The Bearded Lady. Not that I’m old enough to remember those days but my father’s father could. Our culture was not attracted to those we would term, “freaks” because they were beautiful, but because they were uncommon or grotesque. Today, we like to call players “freaks” when we think they are uncommonly gifted. The first…

What Happens Next If This Is It For DJ, JC, Houston & Hali?

Follow @arrowhead_one What Happens Next If This Is It For DJ, JC, Houston & Hali? The very thought of entering the 2017 season without Derrick Johnson is enough to turn your stomach. We Kansas City Chiefs fans have had enough time go by while living without the best running back in organizational history to know what that’s like… although we love Spencer Ware we know he’ll never truly replace Jamaal Charles. While we know the Tamba Hali’s career is winding down the possible loss of Justin Houston looms as the…

Follow @arrowhead_one Heavenly Peace: Chiefs Should Get Some Rest The AFC West title could be on the line Sunday. A Chiefs win and a Raiders loss would give Chiefs their first division win since 2005. Chiefs will no doubt be tempted to pull out all the stops to win, but they shouldn‘t. Division titles are all too often the booby prizes’ of playoff teams. I believe that Chiefs should rest some of their best starters against San Diego and risk losing the game. Here’s why: A Bye Week Helps The biggest…

7 Chief Concerns for the 2017 Offseason

Follow @arrowhead_one 7 Chief Concerns for the 2017 Offseason My how times have changed. A couple of years ago I wrote a similar Piece called, “7 Chiefs Concerns for the 2015 Offseason” and the concerns were as follows: 2015 Concern One– because Eric Fisher was viewed as a possible mistake at that point, the concern was, “whether or not Chiefs fans will all have to sit back and watch as another GM learns “his on-the-job lessons” the hard way.” 2015 Concern Two– Dorsey had spent all of Clark Hunt’s cap…

Follow @arrowhead_one   When Hungry Pigs Fly   What a merry Christmas it was. We got to see a fast start, solid defense and special teams, a Chiefs victory, a Denver loss, eliminated the Doncs from the playoffs, four offensive touchdowns, and a 6’3” 346 lb NFL Nose Tackle throw a touchdown pass from the wildcat. I love it. There were so many aspects of the game that were satisfying, but I thought I would touch on 3 of my favorites. Hungry Pig Flies     It is always fun…

The Kansas City Chiefs Are in the Playoffs and Other Musings

Follow @arrowhead_one Well…16 weeks in, we still have no clue who the hell the 2016 Kansas City Chiefs  are. How many times have I said that this season? This is a team that has lost two-point games–oddly enough by a score of 19-17 on both occasions–to the Tennessee Titans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but hasn’t lost consecutive games since the Kansas City Royals were in the ALCS.    This team just swept the Denver Broncos for the first time since 2000, but got embarrassed by the Pittsburgh Steelers on…
