Merlin’s First Quarter Review

Follow @arrowhead_one       Merlin’s First Quarter Review   Wow, a 4-0 quarter. Unexpected, joyful, but there are troubling signs under the glitter of being the last undefeated team in the NFL. It’s time for the first quarter review.   Game one, New England, on the road, national TV audience, Super Bowl banner being raised. To date, Tom Brady is 102-19 at home. That includes the loss to the Chiefs. That’s a loss percentage of a little over 18%. Simply put, it was a statement win by the Chiefs.…

Another Nail in the Triplet Myth Coffin

Follow @arrowhead_one       There was a time when teams in the National Football League could successfully operate — and by operate I mean win big — by implementing the often referred to use of the “Offensive Triplets.” That would be: the QB, the RB, and the Receiver. Perhaps the most popular example of the triplets was Dallas Troy Aikman, Emmitt Smith and Michael Irvin. Over the years, to climb to the Super Bowl, a number of teams employed that 3-man attack that included a top notch trio who…

Chiefs Win Another Cliffhanger

Follow @arrowhead_one         When the Kansas City Chief hosted the Washington Redskins on Monday Night they battled a team who took them all the way to the last play of the game before it was decided. Again. You see, that’s not the first time that’s happened this season. If you’re a Chiefs fan then you’re thrilled they are 4-and-0 right now, and the only unbeaten team in the National Football League, however, if they keep going down this road of allowing opponents to stay in the game…

It’s not personal but, I LOVE Football!

Follow @arrowhead_one         With all the negative energy swirling around NFL world these days (too many empty seats, too much hocus-POTUS), I must confess some very positive energy: my love for football. There’s no two ways around it. It’s embarrassing sometimes when I think about how much I love the game of football, but I have to admit it, I love the game of football.   When I was a kid I used to watch my father squatting in front of our tube-type television with his hand…

Kareem Hunt: Here He Comes To Save The Day

Follow @arrowhead_one       Kansas City running back Kareem Hunt may not be able to leap tall buildings at a single bound (yet) but, he certainly knows how to deliver the Chiefs from the dastardly clutches of one Philip Rivers of the Loss Angeles Chargers (oh, I love being obvious). After three games and… after 5 passing/receiving touchdowns and… after 401 yards rushing and… after Billions of runs of 50 yards or longer and… after 10.1 yards per carry… all in his first three games, is everyone wondering, like…
