Chiefs news for January 28, 2023

Jump to Tweets | Jump to comments

Good morning AG!

Today in Chiefs’ history, I’m sure y’all will find something. Sure enough. In 1969, the Chiefs drafted some QB/RB from Iowa, Edward Podolak and a WR from the the University of Houston, Elmo Wright. They were ok. In 2018, Mike Garrett was inducted into the Missouri Sports Hall of Fame. Also, in 1960 (I think), the AFL approved the 2pt conversion. The NFL, stodgy as it was, would wait until 1994 to get onboard with it.

There were several notable deaths; Henry VIII in1547, Francis Drake, who helped defeat the Spanish Armada, in 1596, Carl Gustaf Emil Mannerheim, the father of modern Finland, in 1951 and Charlemagne, sometimes called the ‘Father of Europe’ in 814.

In 2014, Pop artist Lorde wins a Grammy for her song “Royals”, which was inspired by a photo of George Brett.

Now the news.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid provides injury updates following Friday practice | Chiefswire

Chiefs’ Steve Spagnuolo describes challenge of sacking Joe Burrow in AFC title game | Chiefswire

These details helped Chiefs punter become All-Pro: ‘I’m just trying to keep rolling’ | KC Star

https://sports.yahoo.com/details-helped-chiefs-punter-become-223946179.html

Townsend says, in the simplest terms, he was looking to improve his attack angle to the ball. That starts before the kick even happens, as if a punter’s strides are too long before he makes contact, the result can be that your heel kicks your butt on the backswing.

Travis Kelce Added to Chiefs’ Injury Report Ahead of AFC Championship | Heavy

Hopefully, Kelce practicing fully on Friday means that being listed on the injury report was just a procedural move by the Chiefs and doesn’t actually put Kelce’s status for the AFC Title Game against the Cincinnati Bengals in jeopardy.

Chiefs TE Travis Kelce Sounds Off on Bengals’ Trash Talk | Heavy

Travis, much like quarterback Patrick Mahomes, has heard the Bengals’ trash talk but doesn’t want to engage with it by throwing shots back.

Will Patrick Mahomes be able to play like Patrick Mahomes? | PFT

https://sports.yahoo.com/patrick-mahomes-able-play-patrick-181015678.html

Some have questioned whether he really has a high ankle sprain. Maybe he does, and maybe he simply has superhuman recovery powers. Or maybe he doesn’t.

Travis Kelce explains bizarre hand-wipe on Patrick Mahomes in Chiefs’ win over Jaguars | Chiefswire

Perhaps Chiefs fans should view this more as an act of brotherly love than a disgusting act of malice against Mahomes, who he clearly has an excellent relationship with.

Well fellas, here we are.

No matter what happens, it’s been a great season. At the beginning of the season, I guessed we’d be 12-5 and thought we might be one-and-done in the playoffs.

So, no matter what happens tomorrow, I’ve already been able to see us play longer than I expected (you know, retooling year and all).

Enjoy the prime matchup! This type of game is what creates legends: two great teams facing off toe to toe. Now let’s go bring that Lamar Hunt trophy back to it’s rightful home!
