The Chiefs surprised some soldiers in their locker room

The Chiefs surprised some soldiers in their locker room

Hey, a positive Chiefs story! I knew this existed ... A few Kansas City Chiefs players surprised soldiers who were on a tour of the stadium. The soldiers didn’t know the Chiefs would be coming in and they did along with their warmups from last week. Pretty cool idea by the Chiefs. A big surprise for these soldiers in the @Chiefs lockeroom. The soldiers were on a tour of the stadium. When they came inside, they were given the warmups worn by the players. #SaluteToService #ChiefsKingdom @41actionnews pic.twitter.com/FWo21OavRO— Steven Dial (@StevenDialTV) November 21, 2017

Chiefs remain the AFC West favorites

Chiefs remain the AFC West favorites

Despite everything you’ve read and heard this week, the Kansas City Chiefs are still in first place in the AFC West and they’re still the favorites to win the AFC West. I know, I know. It’s hard to believe that after they lost to the previously one-win Giants but it’s the truth. That’s a credit to the Chiefs hot start and to the rest of the AFC West who are not very good this year. The only team performing to expectations are the Chargers. I thought they would be a decent but not great team this year and they’re 4-6 record with a few tight losses says that’s who they are....

NFL power rankings 2017: Can the Kansas City Chiefs be in the top 10 right now?

NFL power rankings 2017: Can the Kansas City Chiefs be in the top 10 right now?

This week’s 2017 NFL power rankings are out and the Kansas City Chiefs are mostly out of the top 10. We counted a few media outlets that kept them around the top 10 but most have dropped them. The Chiefs are as low as 14 in some rankings and I can’t blame anyone for ranking them so low. The Chiefs performance last Sunday was awful and they’ve lost four out of five so really they’re playing like one of the worst teams in the league right now. The good news is they started off so hot they still have a cushion in the AFC West but that will quickly disappear if they continue playing...

Chiefs CB Marcus Peters asks President Trump for a meeting

Chiefs CB Marcus Peters asks President Trump for a meeting

It’s 2017 so this is a real sentence: President Donald Trump criticized Marshawn Lynch for sitting during the National Anthem (again) so Marcus Peters tweeted at the President asking for a sit down with him. Marshawn Lynch of the NFL’s Oakland Raiders stands for the Mexican Anthem and sits down to boos for our National Anthem. Great disrespect! Next time NFL should suspend him for remainder of season. Attendance and ratings way down.— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 20, 2017 Here is Peters’ response: Was going on big dog I know we got a lot that needs to be talk...

Arrowheadlines: Chiefs still looking for third cornerback

Arrowheadlines: Chiefs still looking for third cornerback

Kansas City Chiefs' Andy Reid has experience pulling team from a slump | ESPN Of all these slumps, their current situation most resembles that of 2013, unfortunately for the Chiefs. They started this season 5-0 and were the NFL’s last remaining undefeated team. Chiefs offense misfiring without Chris Conley, Albert Wilson | Chiefs Digest Wilson meanwhile is the offense’s Chief spark plug. He’s an emotional leader on the field, but his energy also comes in handy in other ways. The Chiefs like to use Wilson on their motion jet sweep packages. He also does much of the dirty work in...

Chiefs’ Andy Reid roundup: What’s missing at WR, Reggie Ragland a rookie, Parker Ehinger

Chiefs’ Andy Reid roundup: What’s missing at WR, Reggie Ragland a rookie, Parker Ehinger

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid held his weekly conference call early Monday afternoon after the Chiefs’ 12-9 loss to the New York Giants. We have already covered: What happened to the 5-0 Chiefs? Reid says he should have left the Travis Kelce trick pass on the play sheet Other items of note Reid thought linebacker Reggie Ragland, who had a season-high 47 snaps on defense, played well. “I think he did a nice job,” Reid said. “There are a couple plays he’d like to have back but for the most part, he did a nice job. He’s getting better every week. I think we’re seeing...

Andy Reid says he should have left the Travis Kelce pass tucked away

Andy Reid says he should have left the Travis Kelce pass tucked away

With his Kansas City Chiefs at their own 40-yard line tied 6-6 with the New York Giants in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game, head coach Andy Reid called a second-down Travis Kelce pass. The play resulted in an interception. Travis Kelce interception. He throws a good-looking ball at least. pic.twitter.com/Qs7pyqQ7PM— Ian Wharton (@NFLFilmStudy) November 19, 2017 Reid said Tyreek Hill was the primary receiver on the play, but when the Giants did a good job covering him, Kelce chose to launch it to Demarcus Robinson on the right side of the field. Reid admitted Monday he wish he...

What happened to those 5-0 KC Chiefs? Andy Reid weighs in

What happened to those 5-0 KC Chiefs? Andy Reid weighs in

Kansas City Chiefs head coach Andy Reid held his usual Monday conference call this morning after the team’s 12-9 loss to the New York Giants. The first thing Reid was asked was about whether or not the team handled their early 5-0 success well—a stretch that included beating the reigning Super Bowl champion New England Patriots and being the only team in the league to best the Philadelphia Eagles. Reid’s answer was straight and to the point. “I’ll tell you, we can do better,” Reid said. “I think there’s truth in it—I don’t know how you define that, but we’ve all got to...

The day excuses died for the Kansas City Chiefs

The day excuses died for the Kansas City Chiefs

When I’m helping a client in a child protection case who is on a case plan, or criminal defendant who has plead guilty and is on probation, I have a rule. Well, I have many rules, but one rule that I’m going to be writing about today so we’ll just say one rule, because that’s more dramatic. So I have one rule. That rule is “remove all excuses.” By that, I mean that I don’t want my client, when it’s all said and done, to have ANY excuse for failing in a case plan or on probation. I make lists for them. I reach out and work with social services and probation on their behalf....

Remember that time the AFC West was the best division in football?

Remember that time the AFC West was the best division in football?

It feels like an eternity ago but the Kansas City Chiefs were once in the NFL’s best division. It came before this season and before anyone actually saw these teams play but headed into 2017 the talk was that the AFC West could have three playoff teams. The Raiders were the darling of the NFL, the Chiefs were steady Eddie and worth another 10 wins and the Broncos still had a championship-level defense. And then they started playing. The Raiders are who we thought they were. They’re frauds. Their offense isn’t as good as advertised and their defense stinks. Marshawn Lynch didn’t...

AFC playoff picture: Chiefs would host the Titans if playoffs started today

AFC playoff picture: Chiefs would host the Titans if playoffs started today

The Kansas City Chiefs are currently the fourth seed in the AFC after they have now lost four of their last five games. The Chiefs are behind the Steelers, Patriots and Jaguars in the AFC. The fourth seed would still get a home playoff game but they would be playing on Wild Card weekend against the Titans if the playoffs started today. The Chiefs would be favored over the Titans. The Chiefs should still hope for a first round bye. It’s possible but not likely anymore after they sit two games behind the Steelers and Patriots. The Steelers, who own the tiebreaker over the Chiefs, feel like...

Chiefs’ Derrick Johnson played just half the snaps vs. the Giants

Chiefs’ Derrick Johnson played just half the snaps vs. the Giants

Derrick Johnson used to be a lock to play every snap for the Kansas City Chiefs. along with Eric Berry, Ron Parker and Marcus Peters, DJ would be one of a few players who would play every snap. This season is different. He’s coming off his Achilles so I thought perhaps early on in the season as he came back he wouldn’t be playing every snap but he was. He played at least 97 percent of the snaps in five of the Chiefs first six games. He played all 73 defensive snaps as recently as Week 8 vs. the Broncos. Something has changed in the last couple of weeks as his snaps have dropped quite a...

Chiefs problems are lack of passion and explosive plays, say NBC’s Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison

Chiefs problems are lack of passion and explosive plays, say NBC’s Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison

As we struggle to explain what’s wrong with the Kansas City Chiefs, we’ll look to people who know far more about football than I do to help explain it. Tony Dungy and Rodney Harrison discussed the Chiefs last night on NBC’s Football Night in America and offered up a few possible explanations for the Chiefs struggles. Here’s the exchange on NBC: Dan Patrick: “What is wrong with the Chiefs?” Rodney Harrison: “It is a lot. I think back to the trick plays and all the gimmick plays that worked early in the season, they no longer work. The defenses are a lot more disciplined. You...

The Alex Smith era isn’t over, but it’s dying a slow death

The Alex Smith era isn’t over, but it’s dying a slow death

Things this article is not about: an attempt to bash Alex Smith, a call to bench Alex Smith or blaming Alex Smith for all of the Chiefs’ problems. I would like to have an honest conversation about Alex though. He’s played the best football of his career this season. He’s had some of his best moments this season. We’re also seeing the slow death of the Alex Smith era. The Chiefs were embarrassed by a bad New York Giants team on Sunday after losing two weeks ago in Dallas. Sandwiched between Smith’s two worst performances of the season was a bye week that the Smith and the Chiefs...
