What’s Next? Chiefs Season From Here On Out

Follow @arrowhead_one 2-0 feels great, it feels even better when you look at the Chiefs schedule, going forward. Chiefs have eight games remaining that look to be easily winnable games. They have two games against an 0-2 Chargers team, and play home games against the Redskins, Bills and Dolphins. Chiefs also have road games against three teams who look awful right now: the Texans, Giants and Jets. Assuming Chiefs win all of those games, they’ll be sitting pretty with 10 wins. Of course, in the AFC West, that’s not enough…

Out Of Nowhere: The Offense Chiefs Fans Have Been Waiting For

Follow @arrowhead_one For all that Andy Reid has done for KC, fans have still had their beefs with him. The frequently ineffectual screen pass, and the perennially maddening throw three yards outside the end zone on 3rd down are just the most egregious examples. It’s my hope, however, that what we saw against the Patriots was more than just a game plan, it’s a total overhaul of the mediocre offense that’s been holding Chiefs back in the playoffs for years. Without writing 10,000 words, I’m going to do my best…

Realistic Goals For Chiefs Season Opener

Follow @arrowhead_one Usually I would write about what Kansas City Chiefs need to do to win the game but, when you’re facing the New England Patriots in Foxborough, things are a little different. Tom Brady, the best QB in the NFL, is even better at home than he is on the road. In his career, Brady is 88 and 40 on the road, but posts an insane home record of 120 wins to only 21 losses. As much as I would love for the Chiefs to go into the season…

To The Bitter End: Fighting For The Final Spots

Follow @arrowhead_one Just last year, Chiefs would have already cut down to 75 players, and be forced to start guys who had already made the roster in the fourth, and most meaningless, preseason game. This year, the rule has changed, and all 90 players are still here, till Saturday at 3PM. Chiefs are pretty much guaranteed to keep 22 on defense, 22 on offense and three on STs, for a total of 47 players. Out of 53 roster spots, that leaves about six spots up for grabs and 37 guys…

Third Time’s The Charm: Preseason Game #3 Means Something

Follow @arrowhead_one Preseason games are an excellent opportunity to analyze young talent, but we‘ve generally understood them to be meaningless as far as the actual season. For three out of the four games, that’s pretty much true, but the third preseason game is a different animal altogether. With the starters playing a lot of reps and the coaches game-planning, game #3 has become a dress rehearsal for the season and, for the Chiefs, it’s meant the difference between success and failure. In 2012, the Chiefs would have an abysmal year…

Chiefly Bacon’s Medium Rare Roster Prediction

Follow @arrowhead_one There’s nothing like preseason games to bring clarity. Certain players seem to stand out in training camp, but disappear against real opponents. After finally getting some game tape, I’m ready to update my roster prediction and tackle what some of the bottom of the roster guys need to do to stick around. QB (2): 1. Alex Smith, 2. Patrick Mahomes No change here, I still think Chiefs should roll with two QBs. Bray looked awful in his start and Stave managed to look worse. Chiefs can roll with…
