NSLU: Numbers That Count? Chiefs, 30 – Chargers, 13

Latest posts by David Bell (see all)

Follow @arrowhead_one       I took notes tonight with a good deal of meticulousness. A review of the successes of the game follow below. They are exceed the errors. It should be noted by all, and I think most of us had the same question before the opening Kick Off [The Chiefs won the toss and deferred so the Chargers received]. That question was: WHICH CHIEFS TEAM WOULD SHOW UP THIS TIME? The Successes Were Obvious The Chiefs played football on both sides of the ball The Chiefs ground game…

“What Ifs” and the 2017 Draft

Latest posts by David Bell (see all)

Follow @arrowhead_one       Suddenly, I thought, as if struck by a bolt of lightening, that John Dorsey and Andy Reid began a feud and Dorsey lost.   Suddenly, I thought, trading away hugely important draft picks to obtain Patrick Mahomes II at the 10 spot was absolutely not characteristic of John Dorsey, his view of the draft, his due diligence and he certainly wasn’t going to improve the team in 2017 and possibly even 2018.   Whether that’s true or not, what is true is the missed opportunities…

NSLU: Chart-Lock

Latest posts by David Bell (see all)

Follow @arrowhead_one     SLIDE REVIEW AND OBSERVATIONS   Over the past few days, in comments on other threads, I have alluded to, specifically claimed and addressed myself to this “S-l-i-d-e” of the Kansas City Chiefs. We are all witness to it, and completely baffled, or, angry, or sad.   I have posited the responsibility of the rapid descent as belonging as the basic responsibility of the Head Coach. Others have claimed play-calling with which I agree. The defense shored itself up and added a former Pro-Bowl Corner-back. But the…

NSLU: The Ides of March–Taking Liberty with the “Ides”

Latest posts by David Bell (see all)

Follow @arrowhead_one Openers… Like most of the last 5 weeks, I believed the Chiefs should walk out of the showers and head home basking in the good feelings of adding another win to the book. Unfortunately, 4 of the last 5 weeks, I have had to eat some crow on that idea. After reeling off 5 wins in a row, fans have had to enduring back to back losses interspersed with a single victory. They are 6-4 and there is absolutely no excuse for that. NONE!   First off: Injuries Tamba…

NSLU: Wipe That Big Grin Off Your Face

Latest posts by David Bell (see all)

Follow @arrowhead_one       I was sitting here trying to figure out how to begin. I thought to myself, I am looking forward the Chiefs after a big layoff for the Bye. But I am smiling because the Chiefs are playing tomorrow. I look forward to the game. Do I really want to wipe the grin off? Nope. I enjoy watching NFL football, even if it is not the Chiefs playing. So I am going to keep this simple — it is the Game Day early piece. Simple. Keep it…

Chiefs: NSLU, On Any Given Sunday

Latest posts by David Bell (see all)

Follow @arrowhead_one       Chiefs: No Stone Left Unturned — On Any Given Sunday — er, Game Day   The six and three Chiefs have given us reason to first believe that they were a top team in the NFL. Then a 1-3 stretch has many fans and pundits down in the gutter. Neither is the case as far as a realistic view of an NFL Season. Few teams go 13-3 or better. This season, the Chiefs are among the league elites and all teams in the NFL have…

Follow @arrowhead_one       On Sunday, Reflect on Monday: Breath Deep, Get Honest, Meditate     Most of the time, when I follow games closely which I will do today, I then anticipate the Chiefs playing their game — win, lose, draw.   There are times when I dread a contest against a good team where I think we have a matchup that we cannot win. But this year, no matter what, I have different expectations. I know things look a little bleak with the two recent losses. I…
