Nice Comparison of Kaep/Smith

Chiefs' 13-year bad luck at the WR position

Here is a list of WR's who contributed on Chiefs rosters from 2000 until now. It's pretty obvious Bowe is the best name on this list, but if you'll read below, it's quite telling that we haven't...

Jags rumored to be looking to move MJD

Do you think we take a shot? I think he could be monumentally useful as a change of pace/goalline back... Don't like JC getting 20+ carries a game, especially if we're in the playoff hunt (hint: we are)... 4mil price tag seems a bit steep for this year, but then we have a clear 1-2 punch and I don't think MJD would mind playing second fiddle to the best RB in the NFL!

BBC | Unbeaten Chiefs and the new, relaxed Todd Haley

Don't know if this is a repost-- apologies if so. Even the BBC has taken notice of the Chiefs!

Pardon if this is a re-post, but I heard on the radio yesterday that Haley is going to be on Jim Rome today (610 Sports). With the good offseason thus far and the new revelations from Dwayne Bowe, I'm sure they'll have plenty to talk about.

Thanks a million, Clark. I don’t care what you say about our team, the economy, or whatever. Clark ...

Thanks a million, Clark. I don’t care what you say about our team, the economy, or whatever. Clark Hunt should have prevented this. We only had one home game to go, and you could have had a very good P.R. moment giving us the Chiefs for Christmas. Way to thank Jackson County for the tax hike so that you could renovate your fathers stadium. This does not put you in a favorable light Clark, and I hope someone calls you tonight at your mansion in Dallas and chews you out. The Hunts have always been infamous for being tight-- this one takes the cake.

Trading WR Calvin Johnson would net Lions bevy of good talent

Interesting article. Question: Would it take a lot to get him? I think a decent player and a second rounder could suffice. I think you can buy low with terrible teams, but maybe I'm wrong... Do we even want this guy? I think it would possibly be one of the youngest, scariest 1-2 punches at the WR position in the league if we landed Calvin Johnson to play with D-Bowe.

Anyone else think that Matt Cassel is the least of our problems right now? It's convenient to place...

Anyone else think that Matt Cassel is the least of our problems right now? It's convenient to place it on the QB of a bad team's shoulders--but does anyone out there understand that we are weak/lacking in nearly every position on our field? Cassel might not be the next Montana, but on a good TEAM -- y'know, that thing that consists of a GROUP OF PLAYERS who COLLECTIVELY decide our W/L record -- I think we could see him in a Super Bowl game playing for us or someone else.

The Worst Football Game Ever (Joe Posnanski)

But, I found myself shaking my head. Those were dreadful games, no doubt. Someone mentioned the classically bad Redskins-Cowboys Monday Night game when they both came in 0-4 — the Cowboys won that game 9-7. That was some kind of bad. But I think this Chiefs-Raiders game has a chance, a real chance, to be the worst ever, and it begins with the rivalries point: The Chiefs and Raiders make up one of official rivalries in sports. This isn’t some nondescript matchup between Tampa Bay and Carolina. Sure, those two teams on any given day could give you a harrowing football game. But they can’t give you that transcendent bad football experience that we want. The Raiders and Chiefs can. This is a rivalry that goes back to the very beginning of the old AFL. These were the first two teams to represent the AFL in the Super Bowl. The first year the Chiefs were in Kansas City — that was 1963 — they played the Raiders in back-to-back games only five days apart. The Raiders beat the Chiefs 10-7 in Oakland and then drubbed the Chiefs 22-7 back in Kansas City. The next year, the Chiefs beat the Raiders 21-9 and 42-7. Already they despised each other. Lamar Hunt, who pretty much liked everybody, could not stand Al Davis. And Al Davis, who pretty much despised everybody, saved a special place in his book of loathing for Lamar Hunt. Ben Davidson speared Len Dawson. Otis Taylor threw punches. The Chiefs beat the Raiders in Oakland to go to the 1970 Super Bowl, and the Raiders players had to walk out of the stadium with the Super Bowl luggage they had packed. The Raiders took discarded Chiefs quarterback Rich Gannon, gave him a new offense, and went to the Super Bowl (with Gannon winning league MVP). And so on. And so on. Anger. Frustration. Mutual distaste. It’s beautiful.

Joe Posnanski on The Washington Redskins

Poz wrote an interesting blog post about the hapless Redskins and some optimism about the Chiefs. But if you want to put it more bluntly, you could also call it the league of mostly sucky teams. The Cowboys, of course, are better than the Chiefs. But they are not good at all. And teams that are not good at all can fumble punts, can commit stupid penalties on third-down-and-204, can drop sure touchdown passes and game-ending interceptions, can overthrow wide open receivers and so on. And when they do this, the truly sucky teams can stay close and even win the game, if they can get out of their own way. This happens ALL THE TIME in the NFL. These Chiefs are a terrible team, but they stayed close in Baltimore thanks to a blocked punt and a long interception return. They took the Cowboys to overtime thanks to Dallas’ sheer incompetence and a good two-minute drive at the end (a drive made possible when Cowboys defensive back Terrence Newman** dropped a sure interception). In the NFL, you just CANNOT HELP but get chances to win.
