Usually it’s the guys who return punts or block punts or score points with kicks. Rarely do the punters get recognized. But Chiefs punter Dustin Colquitt was just named AFC special teams player of the week, for his role in the Chiefs’ surge back to relevance. Colquitt averaged 40.6 yards on his five punts in…

The Buffalo Bills loss to the New England Patriots means that the Kansas City Chiefs are now the No. 6 team in the NFL playoff picture. It means nothing right now of course because the playoffs don’t start today but it’s a nice feeling for the Chiefs who started 1-5 and now sit at 5-5 after winning four straight.
IF the playoffs started today, the Chiefs would be Read more…

An interesting group of first-time eligible candidates are among the 25 semifinalists for the Pro Football Hall of Fame, which was unveiled tonight. Quarterback Brett Favre and wide receiver Terrell Owens are two of the new names on the list, which will be reduced to 15 before a maximum class of five modern-era candidates is…
I’m no “football guru” but I’ve been a Chiefs fan for a long time so I have some things I want to say after our 4th straight win.
#1) Yeah…it was the Chargers and they pretty much suck this year. But we beat the crap out of them and we did it in their house. In short we beat a division rival on the road and we didn’t just squeak out a win, we just BRUTALIZED them 33-3. In short, we did what we should have done. That is new and different for the Chiefs. Anybody Read more…
….form 1-5 to 5-5, in no specific order:
1. The return of Jeff Allen and Sean Smith.
2. Fisher back at LT.
3. Berry to FS.
4. And I’ll get some heat for this one – The injury to Charles.
Allow me my reasoning for that last one. JC WAS our offense, for many years now. With him out, our offense has seemingly opened things up, giving other players more chances to contribute. Without having to play to JC, or play around him, Reid has been enabled to open up the playbook. Defenses have to key on other players besides JC, Read more…
They didn’t show the game here so I had to follow the frustratingly slow NFL.com tracker. So I am putting these questions to those of you who had the chance to watch with analytical eyes:
1- How did Fisher and the rest of the O-line look? I see we gave up 3 sacks, who gave them up? Was Alex holding the ball too long on any of them?
2- Aside from the big catch and run was Charcandrick any good? His stats aren’t very impressive.
3- Who called that late game timeout? Why?
4- Did Sherman play? I always wonder why he gets Read more…
I still don’t think he will be an elite LT as some originally claimed, but I have been very impressed with Fisher since he was moved back to LT. That could change a the year goes on but Let it be said, I am pleasantly sufficient with his performance the last four weeks at LT. He stepped up when we needed it most and performed.
While it is not all Fisher they have not lost since he moved back to LT. It also may help that Grubb Jeff Allen and Jah Reid have been solid also. While he Read more…

The Chiefs crushed the Chargers 33-3 on Sunday for a fourth straight win that evened their record at 5-5 and left them in position for a playoff push over the final six weeks of the regular season. Over the course of the winning streak, the Chiefs have outscored their opponents 130-39 which helps explain why…
