Former Chief Geoff Schwartz says Eric Fisher got better, someone will pay Rodney Hudson

Former Kansas City Chiefs guard Geoff Schwartz is now with the New York Giants but he took time to talk with Danny Parkins and Carrington Harrison of 610 Sports. They're all down in Arizona where it is the same temperature (55 degrees ... at the time of this posting). Schwartz is a former Chiefs offensive lineman so of course Danny and Carrington asked him for his take on the Chiefs offensive line. Schwartz said he watched a few Chiefs games this year while he was out most of the season with an injury. Listen to Schwartz's full interview here. Here's what he said: LT Eric Fisher: "I...

How many times has a team beaten both Super Bowl teams?

The Chiefs did it this year. Who else has? As you know the Kansas City Chiefs are basically Super Bowl champions* after beating both the New England Patriots (Week 4, 41-14) and Seattle Seahawks (Week 11, 24-20) this season. I got to wondering the other day, how often has a team beaten both Super Bowl teams in the same season? Turns out, 18 times it has happened. The Chiefs were the team to do it this year. The Colts beat both the Seahawks and Broncos in 2013. No team did it in 2012 or 2011. You can see the entire table at Football Perspective. This has actually happened twice in a season...

Arrowheadlines: Kansas City Chiefs News 1/28

Good morning! Here's your Kansas City Chiefs news from across the internet. Enjoy! Chiefs CB Sean Smith's Consistency Helped Lead Chiefs Defense from The Mothership In just his second season with the Kansas City Chiefs, six-year NFL veteran cornerback Sean Smith had arguably the best year of his career in 2014. He helped lead a Chiefs defense that ranked second in the NFL in allowing just 17.6 points per game, not to mention allowing just 51 total points in the fourth quarter, which led the NFL. Developing as a leader for the Chiefs defense, which didn't allow a 50-yard completion,...

Super Bowl 49 picks and predictions: Seahawks over Patriots, says Justin Houston

Appearing on ESPN this week, Chiefs LB Justin Houston says he's picking the Seahawks over the Patriots. The Seattle Seahawks will beat the New England Patriots on Super Bowl Sunday. This according to Kansas City Chiefs LB Justin Houston, who gave his Super Bowl 49 prediction on ESPN's First Take this week. Houston complimented the Seahawks defense while saying they're the key to getting to Tom Brady. "They got a great defense," Houston said. "They fly around and make plays. I feel like that defense can rattle Brady. If you can get ahold of Brady, you can do some damage." That's exactly...

Why this Kansas City Chiefs offseason is so important

For the first time since the Marty Schottheimer era, the window for a championship is open. If general manager John Dorsey makes the correct moves this offseason, the Kansas City Chiefs will win the AFC West in 2015. The Chiefs, a team long on misery and short on reaching expectations, showed multiple flashes of what they can be in 2014. A demolition of the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, a convincing victory against the Seattle Seahawks and wins over the San Diego Chargers, Buffalo Bills and Miami Dolphins head the list. Kansas City has plenty of talent in most areas on both...

Kansas City Chiefs had over $1 million in fines last season

Did you realize the Kansas City Chiefs were fined a whole bunch of money last year? The NFL doesn't make their weekly fines public so maybe you didn't. The Chiefs, according to a report from the Indianapolis Star, were 9th in the NFL in total amount of money fined by the league. That number is $1.02 million, which is $3 million behind the NFL fine leader Indianapolis Colts ($4.02 million). These fines come for hitting the quarterback late or roughing the quarterback or looking at the quarterback in a really mean way. Most fines come because of something to do with the quarterback. This...

Mailbag: Sean Smith's great season, Chiefs vs. Patriots, drafting WRs

I owe you fine folks an apology. Here I was thinking everything was going well. I'd written about Albert Wilson and Justin Houston. I'd talked about the fun moments of 2014. I was even getting a chance to play around in the comments a little. I felt like I was in here doing my job and doing it well. Then I realized I hadn't done a mailbag in weeks, and I had old questions just ... just SITTING there. It's a disgrace. It's a travesty. It's the worst thing anyone has done since some footballs got deflated (or, you know, deflated themselves magically without anyone knowing. somehow). And I...

Justin Houston thinks Alex Smith can lead Chiefs to Super Bowl, but they need more pieces

Justin Houston believes Alex Smith can help take the Kansas City Chiefs to the Super Bowl. But they need more help. Appearing on ESPN's First Take on Tuesday, Houston said he thought Smith could lead the Chiefs to a Super Bowl but that they also need help at receiver and offensive line. "For the past two years we've had winning seasons but we need some more pieces," Houston said. "This year I feel like our offensive line struggled a little bit. We had some injuries on the offensive line that caused him to get sacked more than usual but I think we can do it." Indeed the Chiefs had injuries...

Randall Cobb could get into the end zone with the Kansas City Chiefs

When you go a full season without a wide receiver touchdown, you're going to be looking for receivers. One such receiver who should be highly sought after if he hits free agency is Green Bay Packers WR Randall Cobb, who finished up his rookie contract. With the John Dorsey connection, the Chiefs are a team that folks have mentioned with Randall Cobb. It's not yet free agency so plenty can and will change but he looks like someone the Chiefs might want to consider if he's available and the Chiefs have the money for it. For his part, Cobb tells Ben Heisler of 610 Sports (audio here) that he...

Tyler Lockett: 'If the Chiefs give me an opportunity, I'll take it and run with it'

The Kansas City Chiefs missed the playoffs in the 1996 season after fielding a team with receivers such as Chris Penn and Sean LaChappelle. They needed a speedy receiver to complement their rushing attack in the hopes of making it back to the playoffs in 1997. So they drafted wide receiver Kevin Lockett out of Kansas State in the second round of the 1997 NFL Draft. It seems a similar scenario could be playing out this year. The Chiefs missed the playoffs last season and need receiver  help to get over the hump next season. It seems like perfect timing then that Tyler Lockett, the son of...

Chiefs' Justin Houston doesn't play in the Pro Bowl ... for some reason

2015 NFL mock draft: Kansas City Chiefs post-Senior Bowl selection

The weekly 2015 NFL mock drafts from SB Nation probably won't have many positions besides wide receiver selected as we await the start of the actual NFL Draft. Receiver is the sexy pick this year because of the stat*. There was an offensive lineman picked in an early edition but since then it's been receiver. That continues today with SB Nation once again sending Arizona State WR Jaelen Strong to the Chiefs. Dan Kadar writes: Don't expect this pick to change anytime soon. If Strong happens to be gone, though, another wide receiver like Dorial Green-Beckham could be the pick. If not a wide...

Not trading for Josh Gordon looks like a smart move right now

NFL playoff expansion wouldn't have helped the Kansas City Chiefs

It was last summer that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said that playoff expansion is coming in the 2015 season. Now it doesn't seem like such a sure thing that more playoff teams will be added in 2015. "I'm not necessarily opposed to the idea of adding a playoff team or adding a team from each conference," Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney said this week, via ESPN.com. "But my view on that depends a lot on what goes with it. Schedule is certainly a factor: When would this game be played? The fact that we would now wind up with likely only having one team in each conference with a...
