R-E-L-A-X: Don’t Do It!

Follow @arrowhead_one     From shortly after kickoff, I had an awful feeling. It was part reflection on prior games versus the Steelers and part realization of statistics. I was feeling like this was the week we lose. It was some combination of us winning 5 in a row with the dominance of Pittsburgh over us. I had concerns.   I watched the first half and was disgusted with our offense and defense. Offensively, we had nothing going. Defensively, we couldn’t stop Bell or Brown. This was so offensive because…

The Road Ahead of the Kansas City Chiefs

Follow @arrowhead_one As I was thinking about what a fun season it has been so far, I started wondering what was in store for the rest of the season. Not many people would have had the Chiefs winning the first 5 games of the year. I thought it was going to be too much to ask the team to go into the Patriots home field and win, but Houston, Philadelphia, Washington, and even the Chargers looked tough. Nonetheless, here we sit at 5-0.   Since I am a visual person,…

Chiefs Score 42? Again?

Follow @arrowhead_one       After the Sunday night game, I had some mixed feelings on the victory. While I was definitely happy with the victory, I also felt like we had a lot of points but didn’t look like we were playing very well. It seemed to me like we were getting stuffed on the run a lot and the defense was getting torched. So, I decided I needed to check the stats to see why my eyes were deceiving me.         By The Numbers A…

Arrowhead Showdown

Follow @arrowhead_one               Pre-game Anticipation   As we approach the 8:30PM ET kickoff of the 2-1 Washington Redskins at the 3-0 Kansas City Chiefs, we can enjoy being the last undefeated team in the league for at least another few hours. Entering this game, the Redskins are coming off a dominant 27-10 win against the Oakland Raiders. Meanwhile, the Chiefs played a closer than we’d like 24-10 victory over AFC West rivals, the LA Chargers.   So far this year, the KC offense is…

Week 3: Kansas City Chiefs Are Ranked Number 1!

Follow @arrowhead_one       Now that I have your attention, I will clarify my title a bit: after 3 weeks of play, the Kansas City Chiefs are ranked number one in penalties. That’s number one in total penalties, penalty yards, net penalties, net yards, and total flags. This is not where we want to be ranked and, if we don’t get it fixed, it will bite us at some point and cost us a game.   Here’s The Situation As of the end of week 3, we are averaging…

K.C. Chiefs: The Best of Times, The Worst of Times

Follow @arrowhead_one       Here we sit after victory number two. Victory 1 was an unexpected beating of the New England Patriots in Foxborough to open the season. Victory 2 was an unexpectedly difficult game against the Philadelphia Eagles in the comfy confines of Arrowhead. What happened? Should we worry? Did we escape the dreaded trap game?   In the first half it looked like we were coming out firing on all cylinders and continuing where we left off from the NE game.  However, that stalled out and left…

Are The Chiefs Who We Thought They Were?

Follow @arrowhead_one     Watching the game the other night was a wonderful experience, I think you would all agree. To see our team hang in there and go toe to toe with the Super Bowl Champion, New England Patriots, was something I have been wanting to see for a long time. It seems any time we fall behind to a team that is considered top tier, we just can’t win. Early in the game there were several points this could have happened. But, it didn’t.   As I am…
