The Kansas City Chiefs: Finding a Different Way to Win

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       While the first week of NFL action brought Kansas City Chiefs fans a high-powered, offensive clinic, the second week was a bit different. Instead of the up-and-down the field offensive action we all witnessed on the NFL’s opening night, the Chiefs found themselves involved in a defensive slugfest with the Philadelphia Eagles yesterday afternoon.   As with the Thursday night tilt against the Patriots, I was joined for this game by neighbors who brought homemade breaded chicken bites with them as their offering to…

The Kansas City Chiefs Must Find the Key to Success Early

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet     The last time the Kansas City Chiefs faced off against the New England Patriots in the regular season, both teams looked much different.  In watching the replay of that game, I think the 2017 version of the Chiefs is much better than that 2014 team.  Remember, the Chiefs only had Dwayne Bowe at receiver, Travis Kelce was still an unknown name in the league, and they did not even make the playoffs that year. And despite all that, the Chiefs had the recipe to shut…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       As we sit in the limbo of NFL Draft, Mini Camps, Training Camps, and Preseason, I thought we should take a look at what went down in 2016, with regard to injuries. I did limit it to starters that either missed a lot of games completely or missed some games completely, but were obviously playing at way less than 100%.   I was wondering which player will have the biggest impact in 2017. This completely scientific and irrefutable conclusion will take into account their prior…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Now that the draft is over, we have a new roster to ponder. In addition to the draft, the front office has been busy signing some of the undrafted free agent talent too. Right now it appears we have some 78 players on the roster, and as we all know, it needs to be down to 53 (+10 practice squad) by the regular season. So, how many of the 53 positions are really in play?   In the graphics below, I have highlighted the first column of…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet With the recent free agent signings and other team contracts, I thought I would take a look at how our defense is shaping up at this point in the offseason. While I understand the roster will continue to be shaped based on a number of factors, not the least of which is the draft. However, I would expect any upcoming changes from the draft to be largely backups and developmental players. With that being said, let’s take a look at the defensive roster in three sections –…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet As we approach the draft, there will be many articles written around who should be selected, where do we have needs, where should we upgrade, and many other variations. These are all great ways to slice and dice the roster and available talent to try and identify who should end up on the final 53 man roster. Today I would like to evaluate the team as of year end, based on Pro Football Focus (PFF), Injured Reserve (IR), and career performance. For sake of simplicity, I am…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Kansas City vs. Pittsburgh: How Good Was the Defense? Frank Leggio Based on some recent exchanges on our comments section and after reading many other articles, I decided I wanted to review the defense from the Pittsburgh game. It seemed there were some differences of opinion, varying from… the Chiefs defense did a great job against the “high powered Pitt offense”… to some that were more critical of the performance. I think I fell closer to the latter than the former. As I remembered, K.C. was pretty vanilla…
