Key Battle Groups in Making the KC Chiefs Roster

Follow @arrowhead_one     As we approach the final game of the season, the anticipation builds for who will be part of the final 53. Coach Andy Reid has said that the first team won’t play this week. Instead we will see a tune up half for the second string and a fight for your NFL life quarter for the third and fourth string. Having the extra roster spots has allowed a slightly different approach to determining the final cuts.   Consider These Key Battles   With the exception of…

Twas The Night Before Training Camp

Follow @arrowhead_one   ‘Twas the night before Training Camp, when all through the school Not a creature was stirring, not even a molecule. The jerseys were hung in the lockers with care, In hopes that Mahomes soon would be there.   The players were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of Super Bowls danced in their heads. And Sutton in his ‘kerchief, and Nagy in his cap, Had just settled their brains for a long season of snaps.   When out on the field there arose such a…

Chiefs Fireworks In 2017

Follow @arrowhead_one         Happy 4th of July to all. As we celebrate Independence Day across the US, I thought it might be fun to take a look at how new our team is in the Andy Reid West Coast Offense. The year 2013 brought Chiefs Kingdom a brand new Head Coach/General Manager combination and we began a new era of KC football. As this fledgling team was restructured and retooled, many of us thought it would be years more of losing games as the team leadership got…

Review: Chiefs Running Backs

Follow @arrowhead_one     With the departure of Jamaal Charles and the drafting of Kareem Hunt, I started to get a little concerned with our running backs. Over the last couple of years, it seems that group has been pretty unstable and declining in production. I thought I would do a quick fact check and see what the numbers say. Chiefs Rushing Yardage History 2014 – The team rushed for 1,918 yards on 420 attempts, for a 4.57 yards per attempt. 2015 – The team rushed for 2,044 yards on…

Tyreek Hill: Chiefs Cheetah

Follow @arrowhead_one     Over the weekend I was surfing through the KC Chiefs website and I stumbled upon a video report from B.J. Kissel, Quantifying Tyreek Hill’s Dynamic Ability, and didn’t realize how high his average yards per touchdown was in 2016. I remember a few that were long, mainly because they were on a return and against division rivals, but thought most were around the 20-25 yard mark. If you haven’t watched the video it is fun to see all of his TD’s, as they all seemed to…

Arrowhead Bound: An Annual Pilgrimage to See The Chiefs

Follow @arrowhead_one     Last year I wrote some articles about an annual trip I take to Kansas City with one of my sons to see the Chiefs play in Arrowhead.  I think this will be our sixth year since we started.  This is about the point in the year where we start looking at the different home games to see which one we want to attend.   As part of the process, we look at the opponent, time/day of the game, and other activities in KC on the same…

KC Chiefs New WR1 Is

Follow @arrowhead_one       With the recent release of WR1 Jeremy Maclin, I began to wonder who will move into that position. There are some obvious candidates, like Albert Wilson (Ha!), Tyreek Hill, and Chris Conley, but let’s see who else may be in the running.       The WR1 Candidates I am not sure why, but I expected to see a lot better stats for the group of veterans. The scary thing is that Albert Wilson has the most starts, yardage, and receptions. The good news is…
