Why Drafting A First Round Running Back Is A Bad Idea

I've heard a lot of people who want the Chiefs to draft Trent Richardson out of Alabama with our first round pick. From what they say, he's the Andrew Luck of running backs, the best prospect since...

Why the Chiefs are Favorites to Get Manning

At 0-13, the Indianapolis Colts will almost certainly have the first overall pick in the 2012 draft. This is, as we all know, the draft that contains Andrew Luck, who many feel is the best QB...

15 teams had 3 or fewer players go to the Pro Bowl last year. That's almost half the league that don't have more than 3 Pro Bowl players from last year on their entire roster. The Chiefs now have 3 Pro Bowl players from last year on Injured Reserve. In other words, we have as many Pro Bowl players on Injured Reserve as a lot of teams have on their entire roster.

Found this while aimlessly wondering around YouTube. Carlin doesn't approve of our head coach's name, but luckily my name gets the stamp of approval. (Edit: Just realized there's some cussing, so you may want to stay away if that stuff bothers you. I just realized it because I cuss like a fucking sailor in real life.)

Thomas Jones carried the ball 9 times for 19 yards against Oakland, with a long of 14 yards. That means that, other than that 14 yard run, Jones had 8 carries for 5 yards, which would put him at 0.625 yards per attempt on those runs.

I need a favor from you guys. So I'm working on a fanpost in which Cassel's performance against the Chargers plays a central role. Unfortunately, unlike when I usually post, I'm not very sure I'm right. The issue is that when I look at that game, I can't see anything but an average performance by Cassel, but I am seemingly the only person who thinks that. I'm used to having, how should I put this, "unique" opinions that many people don't share, but I usually have at least a couple people backing me up. And while the lone voice occasionally proves the masses wrong, more often than not the masses are right. That's why they're the masses. So I wanted to double check that I have everything right before I put it up as fact. What arguments are there for saying Cassel had a bad game against the Chargers? The only two I've heard are that he had a bad first half and the interception to end the game. I don't find these arguments convincing, and if that's the extent of the disagreement I can confidently post it (I address both of these there). However, if I'm missing something, some crucial piece of evidence that proves Cassel did a terrible job, I would really like to hear it. In short, besides a bad first half and the interception, is there any other reason that makes you believe Cassel had a bad game last Sunday?

Should Steve Spagnuolo be on the hot seat? I mean, I've heard a ton of people say Haley might be out, but Haley won more games last year than Spagnuolo has in his entire career as a head coach. Is there any real argument for saying Spagnuolo should stay in St. Louis but Haley should be booted?

In 2003, a terrible Bills team beat the New England Patriots 31-0. The Patriots went on to win the Super Bowl. It doesn't mean we'll win the Super Bowl, but it does go to show that one game can be very deceiving.

Assuming we're out of the wild card running (since it would take a miracle for us to lose the division and make the playoffs), the playoff picture has become very simple. With the Broncos eliminated, only the Chargers and Raiders can knock us out of the top spot in the division. To hold them off, the magic number is 3 for the Chargers and 2 for the Raiders. That is, any combination of 3 Chiefs wins and Chargers losses (say, 2 KC wins and 1 SD loss) eliminates the Chargers, while any combination of 2 for the Raiders OR a victory over them in week 17 knocks them out. So, if we win our next two, and SD losses one of the next two, we will clinch the division before the Raiders game.

The Chiefs have the fifth longest current regular season winning streak with 3 in a row.
