We were wrong all along

They said they had no offense. They said they couldn’t score. They said they couldn’t compete in the playoffs because of their weak offense. They called him a game manager. They called him a terrible playcaller. They called them overrated. They aren’t talking anymore. The Kansas City Chiefs posted a NFL season high 56 points in Oakland on Sunday. Yes, the Kansas City Chiefs offense that everyone,...

AFC West playoff scenarios

20131020_105712_resized
KANSAS CITY, Mo. – While the Chiefs won’t openly admit it, there will likely be some scoreboard watching Sunday.

Denver currently owns the tiebreaker over the Chiefs based on the series sweep. And the Broncos...

Chief Fans Never Fooled, They Know Their Team

Chief Concerns: Stephen Brown Twitter: @chiefconcerns58 NFL.com said something about Kansas City and their fans. “In the heady days of the 9-0 start, the Chiefs and their fans might have been lulled into thinking Kansas City was already at the level of New England and Denver,” said NFL.com’s Judy Battista.

Chief Concerns Part 1: Sutton Death…Sort of

Chief Concerns: Connor Dawson Wow! That’s all that comes to my mind when I think about the Chiefs in the past three weeks. It’s getting more difficult to find an answer to their problems as they continue to play very bad football. After a strong 9-0 start, the Chiefs have lost three games in a row, including the last two where the Chiefs had a lead late in the fourth. But, why now? Why is it that...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – It’s no secret the Chiefs pass defense has struggled since coming off a Week 10 bye. Under defensive coordinator Bob Sutton, the Chiefs incorporate press coverage, an in-your-face and may-the-best-player win attitude. And the Chiefs have the physical cornerbacks to do it with Brandon Flowers, Sean Smith and Marcus Cooper. Nov 17, 2013; Denver, CO, USA; Kansas City Chiefs cornerback...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. – There’s a difference the second time around between the Chiefs and Denver Broncos. While both teams are coming off disappointing losses, the change has more to do with the absence of nonstop hype. In the first meeting two weeks ago, national media and TV satellite trucks converged on the Chiefs training facility, giving the Week 11 matchup a playoff-like atmosphere. Nov 17, 2013;...

The first Thanksgiving? A Chief was there

Well, maybe there was a “Chief” at the first Thanksgiving. Historical accounts vary, but some say the Wampanoag leader Massasoit had donated food stores to the fledgling colony at Plymouth during the first winter when supplies from England were insufficient. One can assume, perhaps, that he shared in the 1621 feast of Thanksgiving with the Pilgrims there. Of course, if you want to be a true stickler...

Chiefs Need 11 to Make Playoffs

Chief Concerns: Stephen Brown Twitter: @chiefconcerns58 The Kansas City Chiefs can clinch a playoff spot in Week 13, so can the Broncos and Seattle Seahawks. Regardless, the Chiefs need two more wins (11) to be a wildcard. Beating Denver can seal it for the Chiefs, they’d be in the playoffs and have a game lead in the AFC West. It can all be handled Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium. “It...
