Follow @arrowhead_one   Systemic Problems- Part I: The West Coast Offense   Everyone’s position on Alex Smith is established at this point. Rather than spend a ton of time on that, I thought it would be interesting to explore some of the Chiefs issues that more fans can agree on. In the NFL, there are a wide variety of offensive and defensive systems. There are three notable systems that the Chiefs run: The West Coast Offense, A Zone Blocking Run Scheme and a 3-4 Defense. It is my personal opinion…

We Knew This Would Happen Sooner or Later

Follow @arrowhead_one       Last week, I said football is only fun when you’re winning. I did NOT have any fun yesterday. I drank too much, I ate too much and the Chiefs didn’t do enough.   I hate the Pittsburgh Steelers. Outside of the Denver Broncos and the Oakland Raiders, they are probably the team I like the least in the entire league. I don’t like their rapey quarterback. I don’t like their drug-using running back. I don’t like their prima-donna wide receiver. I don’t like their head-hunting…

Anatomy of a Touchdown Week 5: Dr. Hill Makes a House Call

Follow @arrowhead_one       Here’s what I love about this season so far: there are so many touchdowns scored — the Chiefs are leading the league in points per game, in case you didn’t know — that I actually had four TDs pick from this week. I thought about re-reviewing one from last week’s win against the Washington Redskins since I didn’t publish one of these due to being assigned jury duty in a military court, but I couldn’t resist breaking down Tyreek Hill’s magical ability to return a…

The Kansas City Chiefs: Are They the Best in the NFL?

Follow @arrowhead_one       Is this the best version of the Kansas City Chiefs we have ever seen? Last night, I was at my neighbor’s house watching the game and there was another mutual friend over. He is a Green Bay Packers fan, and thus an unbiased party. His comment was: “The Chiefs have always had a really good offense but a bad defense. Or, they have always had a really good defense but not offense. For the first time, I think they have found the right mix.”  …

Anatomy of a Touchdown Week 3: Kareem Hunt Breakin’ Ankles and Records

Follow @arrowhead_one     As another week comes to an end, it is time, once again, to break down a touchdown from the third-best offense–and best rushing offense–in the National Football League.   I don’t know what genie lamp former general manager John Dorsey rubbed, or who he sold his soul to in order to uncover the gem that is Kareem Hunt, but I’m sure I’m not alone when I say I’m thankful for him. Hunt has made quite the impact since he has arrived on the scene in Kansas…

Follow @arrowhead_one       Now that I have your attention, I will clarify my title a bit: after 3 weeks of play, the Kansas City Chiefs are ranked number one in penalties. That’s number one in total penalties, penalty yards, net penalties, net yards, and total flags. This is not where we want to be ranked and, if we don’t get it fixed, it will bite us at some point and cost us a game.   Here’s The Situation As of the end of week 3, we are averaging…

I Am Tired of The National Anthem Controversy

Follow @arrowhead_one       I am really tired of this. What I am about to say may please some of you. It also may piss some of you off. To be honest, either way, I don’t give a $h!t. I am going to say it once, on my platform, and then I am done with it. Next week, it’s back to football.   I am absolutely sick of this controversy surrounding the National Anthem.   Last year the kickoff to the NFL season was on the 15th Anniversary of…
