Winning is a Habit, and So is Losing- This is THE CHOP

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Winning is a Habit, and So is Losing This is THE CHOP     “Winning is habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.” –  Vince Lombardi Mr. Lombardi knew what he was talking about here. The habit of winning and the habit of losing is so crystal clear in today’s NFL, it’s almost comical. There are teams in the NFL today that perfectly personify this quote. Obviously, the New England Patriots are the perfect example of a team making winning a habit.

The Return of JC, Ham Head, and Rex’s Revenge – This is The Chop

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet The Return of JC, Ham Head, and Rex’s Revenge This is The Chop Holy crap, what a great win that was last week. The defense is starting to fall into form, especially against the run.

If the Chiefs can keep teams one-dimensional, and start to move the ball a little…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Sister Mary Clarence, The Mighty Ducks, and Taco Bell on Game Day – This is The Chop Good morning Chief-heads. I hope you’ve dealt with last week well. After all, it really wasn’t that bad. Or at least, it didn’t feel that bad through Thursday afternoon.

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet   Fake Tom Brady, Slow Starts and J.J. Watt – This is The Chop       I don’t know about you, but I’m still trying to comprehend that game last week. What in God’s name actually happened there? Honestly, you are left with three choices: it was either a gutsy performance from the Chiefs, a brutal meltdown by the Chargers, or something a little in between. Two of the things that scared the crap out of me going into the game held true: the complete and…
