Pre-Game Concerns Realized.

Going into this weekend’s game between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers, my biggest concern was the Chiefs ability to stop the run and their ability to contain Colin Kaepernick. Unfortunately, both of those fears came to fruition. Due to the injuries to Derrick Johnson and Mike DeVito, the Chiefs ability to stop […]

The Aftermath of MNF

The morning after a Monday Night Football matchup usually has two reactions. The first being for the victors is a sense of elation that their team won in primetime television with millions of eyes watching. The second is the losing team trying to make sense of what happened and wishing the guys on SportsCenter had […]

Joe McKnight Tears Achilles

If you would have told me that an injury to Joe McKnight would be big news even a week ago, I’d have probably had to fight back a laugh. After his 2 touchdown performance Sunday though it looked like the Chiefs might have found a diamond in the rough. Andy Reid went as far as […]

Alex Smith - Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs

Matt Cass… Err… Alex Smith Has a Problem

Freak out! He’s comparing Alex Smith to Matt Cassel. Settle… Since the day that it was announced that the Chiefs were trading for Alex Smith, the comparisons have rarely ceased. I have argued against these comparisons. I’ve never looked at the two and seen the same quarterback. The key word here is looked. It’s hard […]

Are They Who We Thought They Were?

The Chiefs came into the 2014 with the 7th hardest strength of schedule in the NFL, so although they had a playoff season last year, prognosticators predicted trouble for the Chiefs this year. It seems the general consensus ran about 8-8 (7-9) for me with some outliers. After three games, many are wondering if the […]
