Merry Christmas Arrowhead Pride!!!!I'm sure they will have a more proper post later, but for now. Hope everyone has a great Christmas morning. Go Chiefs!
Good morning everyone. Really quickly before one of our biggest games of the year I wanted to remind people of a couple of issues with commenting and how we can better self-police the site. Please...
First thing I would like to say is that it was a great experience to be able to even go to Kansas City Chiefs camp and be a part of it this year. I love that they moved it closer.
Video of one of the bad plays by Cassel today. He underthrows Dexter on a go route. Dexter looks like he has the separation on the outside to be ridiculous at WR. (Sorry for the quality. Uploaded from a phone so it is compressed.)
Brad Cottam just got back in kc and cleared to take the neck brace off...Brad Cottam's Facebook For those wondering about his progress.
Crennel’s agent, Joe Linta, said Tuesday the veteran coordinator’s preference was to work next season for the Chiefs. "Would he take it if they offered the job? I suppose he would," Linta said.KC Star - Crennel wants to work for Chiefs H/T GenericBrand
The best news for Chiefs fans is they have the right man to get this ship righted in Scott Pioli. The problem is that it is unlikely to happen overnight, especially considering the roster he inherited. To build a team that can play at a consistent championship level for the long haul, decisions need to be made with the proper time horizon in place. That is why you won't see Pioli make any knee-jerk moves to appease the media or re-ignite fan interest. Not going to happen. What is going to happen is that he'll continue to methodically make deals to get to the Chiefs to a place where they can put forth a winning effort on a weekly basis.Ross Tucker - Sports Illustrated He seems to understand the process. H/T Chiefstatnut - Just wanted to get the good quote some recognition.
Scott Pioli stuck Haley with a craptastic roster. The stupidity of playing all season with special-team players masquerading as starting linebackers and safeties has caught up with the Chiefs the last month. And so has playing musical waiver wire at receiver.Jason Whitlock - Kansas City Star
Good evening boys and girls...Tonight we get to see an amazing matchup between NFC West rival Cardinals and 49ers. Should help us take our mind off of the week. (Photo source) Who will win? Go C...
The Chiefs turned the ball over four times. Quarterback Matt Cassel dropped a pick-6 fumble into the gut of a blitzing San Diego defensive back. Running back Jamaal Charles coughed up a fumble when the game was still close. Cassel tossed an interception. There’s another turnover that I can’t remember at the moment. Oh, that’s right. Center Rudy Niswanger zinged a shotgun snap over the head of Cassel....Let’s deal with the obvious. The Chiefs are not as bad as they looked on Sunday. San Diego is not 29 points better than the Chiefs. The Chiefs came out feeling a touch too good about themselves, a little loosey-goosey, and the Chargers slapped them into reality.Jason Whitlock - Kansas City Star
As a community coming off of our biggest win in the last few years, I can assume that many of us are emotionally hungover and many more are probably actually hungover. This should be a decent game...
"Haley’s transformation from coaching mad man to competent leader has been going on for several weeks. Sunday, he finally struck the right balance. His team reflected his new spirit. The players wanted to shock the Steelers as much as their coach, whose father played and worked for the Steelers. Are things perfect between Haley and his players? No. But there’s been a lot of progress."Jason Whitlock - Kansas City Star
"...On Thursday in their offensive team meeting, they're installing their red zone offense, inside the 20. Todd Haley comes up to Cassel and he says, 'Listen, we're putting a new play in this week. Something I saw in the Steeler's film.' Cassel saw it, a little shovel pass in the middle to Jamaal Charles. He called it on Sunday and as soon as the play was called, in his head Cassel said, 'Touchdown.'"Peter just told the story on Football Night In America. A 3 day old play. Touchdown.

"I have to be smart," Haley admitted. "You can’t let the circumstances get to you too much." The circumstances are: 1. Haley and Scott Pioli are getting a very difficult lesson in just how hard it is to win in the NFL; 2. Kansas City’s personnel is below average; 3. After running his mouth and carrying himself like his coaching would magically produce five or six victories, Haley is embarrassed.Jason Whitlock - Kansas City Star

According to an industry source, the team considered releasing Johnson — who has a history of misbehavior — but was cautious of the precedent it might set. The Chiefs didn't want to send the message that, if a player wants out of Kansas City, all he has to do is speak out or act up to get his way....It's not out of the question that Johnson has played his final game with the Chiefs, and the next week will go a long way toward determining what happens next. Johnson is being watched.Kent Babb - Kansas City Star
Scott Pioli was given a free hand to reconstruct the Chiefs in his vision from the ground, and he's in the 10th month of probably a three-year building job doing that.Peter King - SI.Com - MMQB Tuesday Edition
Alright, AP....I had the thought that I am sure many of us attended the game today, even though we failed to have a successful AP-Tailgate (And Chris failed to let me in the pressbox). I wanted to...
Bernard Pollard out. Chiefs GM Scott Pioli thought he might get a seventh-round pick for him, but no one stepped up. The waiver-wire pickup of tackle Ryan O'Callaghan continues to show how dissatisfied Kansas City is with its incumbents on the offensive line.MMQB

Jackson, this year’s No. 3 overall pick, said he’s no more than 40 percent comfortable or ready to meet the Chiefs’ high expectations. He said the only cure for the time he missed, which occurred while his five-year contract was being finalized, is more time. More time with his teammates and coaches, and more nights studying Kansas City’s playbook.Kansas City Star - Top pick Jackson, Chiefs defense have some catching up to do
