Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       It’s Lamar Hunt Trophy day and once again Lamar Hunt’s team is missing. In 1970, the year the Kansas City Chiefs won their only Super Bowl victory, the AFC Conference Champion was to forever be named after the Chiefs owner, and AFL League founder, Lamar Hunt. Since Baltimore won the first Lamar Hunt Trophy following the 1970-71 season, in the 48 years since that time, K.C. has appeared in that game once following the 1993 season with Joe Montana at the helm, but never…

NSLU: Much Ado About Very Little and Waiting for Godot

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       Much Ado About Very Little I was not at all impressed by anything in this game, the East-West Shrine Game. I had hoped to see someone stand out. Maybe there was the throw by Shimonek to the front left corner of the end zone for a TD and the win. But not much else. JT Barrett did nothing to make his case though he was not helped by receivers dropping passes. I saw no great defensive standouts, which as mentioned yesterday in comments, I…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet           Ever since the Kansas City Chiefs lost to the Tennessee Titans (btw, no one around here wants to, remember the Titans), fans across the globe have been speculating about what the Chiefs will do this offseason to make the team better… to heal their wounds… to fill in the gaps that will help them get over the hump when the next playoffs roll around. Yes, fans want to know what “The Fix” will entail and while we can begin to guess at…

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet Identifying Your Identity Who do you think you are? The question perpetually asked of people doing things they have no business doing. Things like losing in the playoffs to the Titans, or scoring zero points in the second half. In this case though, what’s peaked my curiosity, is something our beloved Homer Dave said to me in a conversation on twitter: ‘Chiefs lack identity’. I think most fans agree with this, but I wondered what the Chiefs themselves thought. While press conferences are pretty much designed to…

And ‘ow to Run an ‘otel (Solving the Defense Woes in a Single Off-Season)

Follow @arrowhead_one Tweet       “And ‘ow to Run an ‘otel” There is that mystical thing that John Cleese brought to comedy. Maybe it applies here when Penelope makes a snide remark to Fawlty about running a hotel. Things are not as bleak as folks are making it out. I came up with two or three ways to get about 35-40 million in cap space. That still stands. If we can get that cushion, the Chiefs can resolve most of their exposures in a single off-season. I think it…
