Week 15: Chargers at Chiefs – OPEN THREAD

Follow @arrowhead_one     Chargers at Chiefs: The Boom or Bust Game It is highly likely that the winner of the game tonight between our Kansas City Chiefs and the Los Angeles Chargers at Arrowhead Stadium will determine who wins the AFC West this year. One of those outcomes will propel the Chiefs down a much different path. If the Chiefs Lose Tonight… If Kansas City loses tonight and then lose the AFC West in the process, they’ll jump into re-building mode. The word “Re-build” is thrown around a lot.…

Chiefs: The Peters Prognosis

Follow @arrowhead_one       The Kansas City Chiefs find themselves in an potentially precarious position. They posses one of the better cornerbacks in the league — over the past three years — yet their defensive backfield just played arguably their best game of the year. If you’re within shouting distance of Kansas City Sports radio then you may already be aware that the subject of Marcus Peters presence on the team has been one of the hottest topics this season. Before the team jumps into what some have called…

Patrick Mahomes to Start…

Follow @arrowhead_one       It looks like the quarterback of the future, Patrick Mahomes II, will start for the Kansas City Chiefs… at some point this season. The odds are in his favor. Sure, the season is winding down, so he’s running out of chances, but there is a precedence and a pattern of Chiefs back-up QB stating at least one game each season for the past five years….   In Alex Smith’s first season with the Chiefs in 2013, he started 15 games. Back-up QB Chase Daniel, started…

Chiefs in the Hunt

Follow @arrowhead_one       On Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead Stadium, the Kansas City Chiefs manhandled the Oakland Raiders then held on for dear life late in the game. On a day when QB Alex Smith was less than stellar — his quarterback rating was 71.1 on the day compared to his 107.2 rating for the year — the Chiefs remained in the hunt for the AFC West crown because RB Kareem Hunt ran for 116 yards and added another 22 yards receiving.   While the defense also played lights…

Week 14: Chiefs Host Raiders OPEN THREAD

Follow @arrowhead_one       Well, it’s come down to this: a bout with the Oakland Raiders for first place. While I would have preferred that the Chiefs run away with the division — like the dish ran away with the spoon — we’ll have to settle for a rigorous episode of Roadrunner, where the Raiders end up dropping an anvil on their own head. I guess I’ve been spending too much time with my grandkids (actually, that’s not possible).   Surprise, surprise, every writer at USAToday is picking the…

The Chiefs Up and Down Season

Follow @arrowhead_one       The Kansas City Chiefs up and down season is three-fourths over but it’s clear change is in the air. Unless the current pattern changes immediately beginning with the game against the Oakland Raiders on Sunday — and sorry to say I’m not expecting that it will — then those changes may be based upon the players who have had an up season and those who have had a down year. Here, I’ll explore who has had which and which have had what. Let’s begin with…

NFL Game Violence: The Rugby Solution

Follow @arrowhead_one       Before going too far into the subject of  NFL violence, let me say that I was a child of the early 1950s and my first exposure to football was looking at pictures of my father’s favorite players or watching his favorite teams play the game in leather helmets. Since my father was born in 1924, you’ll find that his favorite players are rarely mentioned when you see Top Ten lists offered on the NFL Network. I used to idolize players like Dick “Night Train” Lane…
