It All Ends In Indy!

Just wanted to say thanks to my FB friends, and to the almost 8 million Chiefs Radio listeners. I’ve received a lot of notes over the past 24 hours…READ MORE

Goodbye Ol’ Pardner

Goodbye Ol’ Pardner

Keeping up with Grigs in an airport was tough. He walked fast and with purpose. In fact, the more time we had, the faster he walked. By the time the rest of us arrived at the gate, Grigs was already best friends with the pilots and crew. And he was holding court with everyone waiting to board – and a few who weren’t. It could have been the cab driver, or a fan waiting in line. A security guard; a receptionist; or a CEO. Everyone succumbed to the warmth and charisma of Grigs. And everyone who had the fortune to cross his path, would always remember fondly their brief encounter with the Grigs! He was after all infectious. He was…a friend to life itself. He loved Lenny. And he loved Lamar Hunt. Like so, so many others, I will always remember my time with Bill...

Chiefs Legislate Win!

Haley’s men got there first win as they wrap up an NFC East gauntlet.  But there is no doubt, the state of the Redskins, makes this “W” less than impressive.  Which leaves many asking, are they improving?  I think they are.  But in an effort to determine this, I thought I’d review a couple of items from the Washington game that I believe need improvement.  And then reassess it over the next few games.  PASSING GAME Matt seems to be having trouble seeing receivers that are or are becoming open.  There are more than a half dozen plays he misses deeper opportunities that are WIDE open.  And another half dozen in which the ball could have been thrown safely, where the only one able to catch the ball would have been a Chiefs receiver. I don’t believe this is a lack of...

Special Teams Raid Chiefs

Hard to win a football game if you turn it over.  And by now, we’ve all rehashed the final moments of the 1st half.  So the W slipped through our fingers on a handful of mistakes.  While, I’m not excusing ANY mistakes, today the Oakland Raiders demonstrated how good special teams can keep you in a game that your offense barely plays in. The Chiefs defense had their work cut out for them today.  And it wasn’t because of the powerful running game of the Raiders.  It is because the Raiders only play on half the field.  If you get the ball near your opponent forty…Sebastian Janikowski is dangerous.  But today, Shane Lechler put on a Pro Bowl demonstration of punting.  His net average yards were impressive.  The play of the entire special teams...

How a Chiefs fumble changed NFL history

A friend of mine, Eric Townsend (who also happens to be a rock star with the Chiefs Radio Network!) found this intresting post from Adam Schefter, regarding the end of the 2008 NFL season. “Nobody ever could have, or would have, predicted that one play could cost multiple teams playoff spots and Super-Bowl winning coaches their jobs and change the course of NFL history.   But it did…”   [thumb]http://blogs.nfl.com/2009/01/18/how-a-chiefs-fumble-changed-the-course-of-nfl-history/[/thumb] Sliding...

Scott Pioli becomes Chiefs GM

We interrupt this message…. Scott Pioli former Vice President of Player Personnel for the New England Patriots becomes General Manager for the Kansas City Chiefs! IMHO, this is a home run from both Clark Hunt and Denny Thum.  Certainly Pioli is the man with the greatest pedigree.   He is a four time NFL Executive of the Year.  He has three rings.  His assistant, former Chiefs,Thomas Dimtroff was responsible for getting Atlanta back on track this year.   And perhaps most important, is his ability to discern talent.   Remember, Tom Brady was a 6th round pick.  And Matt Cassel was a 7th rounder who was a backup in college behind two Heisman Trophy winners.    But the single greatest benefit is just what Chiefs fans need most – HOPE! Do I think Mr. Pioli...
