I’m Glad the Chiefs Lost

Follow @arrowhead_one   Allow me to rephrase, “I’m glad the Chiefs didn’t win by coming back in a close ending after playing horribly for 80% of the game.”   Now, for some of you that may still sound like fandom betrayal… but don’t think for one minute that I’m about to jump ship. I have been a Chiefs fan through the 1970s and the 1980s, so a little loss like the one on Sunday, isn’t going to change my devotion to the red and gold of K.C. However, if you’ll…

Chiefs Fall to Pittsburgh, Show No Progress

Follow @arrowhead_one       I want you to know, when I’m wrong, I say I’m wrong. So, let me be clear, “I may be wrong.” Of course I predicted that our Kansas City Chiefs would beat the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday by a score of 31-to-16 but, that’s not what I may be wrong about. Obviously, I was dead wrong about that one. What I may have been wrong about is that the Chiefs have gotten significantly better this past offseason, specifically through the draft.   Allow me to…

The Steelers at the Chiefs: Open Thread

Follow @arrowhead_one       Who could have guessed that the Kansas City Chiefs would be 5-and-0 right now? Not I. While I had the Chiefs going 12-and-4 this year I thought the front half of their schedule looked like it was the more difficult half and that the normally slow starting Chiefs would continue that trend. Now, instead of looking at the schedule and projecting any of their opponents as incredibly-tough-outs… I’m sure those teams are now looking at K.C. and thinking, “Oh, God, we’re probably not going to…

Chiefs: A Little of This and “YAT”

Follow @arrowhead_one                         Yeah. I know there were 3 preceding quarters. But let’s get to pleading the 4th. It might be summed up by this one play, see next. But to open the 4th quarter, Harrison Butker nailed a 3 pointer to extend KC’s lead to 26-13 at the 14 minute Mark. I felt the Chiefs were in command. Then? The freakin’ defense fell apart, well, whatever happened, happened. When that 4th Quarter started and the Texans were down…

K.C. Chiefs: 5 and Oh Yes!

Follow @arrowhead_one       Your Kansas City Chiefs are 5-and-0 and look like the best team in the National Football League. They are scoring at a 32.8 points per game clip which happens to rank them… uh… let’s see… first overall! The L.A. Rams are second at 30.4 ppg and no other team charts over 30. Not since K.C. averaged 30.25 for the season in 2003 have the Chiefs offense been this much fun to watch. Yep, that was the season Priest Holmes led the league with 27 TDs…

Chiefs v Texans: Sunday Night Football Open Thread

Follow @arrowhead_one       Chiefs v Texans: Sunday Night Football Open Thread   With the Los Angeles Raiders winning today, the AFC West can maintain their position as one of the best divisions in the NFL. The Raiders are, as of this moment, losing to the Baltimore Ravens (24-10) in Oakland but, if they lose, it should not effect the high standard for the AFC West teams because their QB, Derek Carr, is out with an injury.   The Kansas City Chiefs are up against an up-and-coming rookie quarterback…

NFL: Week 5 Sunday Afternoon Open Thread

Follow @arrowhead_one       NFL: Week 5 Sunday Afternoon Open Thread   It’s game time for the 5th week in the 2017 season of the National Football League. In AFC West, the Denver Broncos have a Bye Week so even if the Kansas City Chiefs lose in Houston tonight, they’re still in first place. The other teams joining Denver on the sidelines this weekend include Washington, Atlanta and New Orleans.   Also in the AFC West, the Baltimore Ravens are visiting the driver-less (Carr-less) Oakland Raiders and I won’t…
