Good morning AG! Today in history, Warren Moon was born in 1956 and Joe Thuney in 1992…

Okay, now its day three of my help-wanted ad. I tried offering internet glory yesterday, but it didn’t work, although we did have one person volunteer another, which might be progress. Hmm. What to do next. Blackmail? I could use these advanced search algorithms to dig up dirt on each and every one of you. I recently tried it out but it kept coming up with my name, so I might have to do a little refining on that…

Patrick Mahomes won’t let the Chiefs’ improved defense ‘get overlooked’ | espn

https://www.espn.com/blog/afcwest/post/_/id/88077/patrick-mahomes-wont-let-the-chiefs-improved-defense-get-overlooked

Fortunately for the Chiefs, their game against the Cowboys is Sunday at Arrowhead Stadium (4:25 p.m. ET, Fox), and things have changed dramatically in a month. The Cowboys lead the league in scoring and Prescott is the NFL’s top-rated passer, but defense is no longer dragging the Chiefs down. They’ve allowed fewer than 16 points per game over their past five, which is third best in the league during that span.

Chiefs WR Byron Pringle Earning National Recognition | heavy

Pringle has reeled 22 of 30 targets for 301 yards and three touchdowns through 10 games this season. 19 of those 22 receptions have resulted in first downs or touchdowns, according to Pro Football Reference. Pringle’s big-play ability despite a small target share, coupled with his exceptional work on special teams has earned him the trust of the coaching staff, which in turn has awarded him a larger workload.

Chiefs preparing for high-powered Dallas Cowboys to come to Arrowhead Stadium | ozarkfirst

On Sunday, the 7-2 Dallas Cowboys will make their way to Arrowhead Stadium to face the 6-4 Kansas City Chiefs. These teams will be playing for the Preston Road Trophy: a trophy crafted by Chiefs owner Clark Hunt that goes to the winner of any Chiefs-Cowboys matchup.

Chiefs LB Nick Bolton chasing improvement after filling in for Anthony Hitchens | usatoday

Rookie linebacker Nick Bolton has played a huge part in the defensive turnaround, proving to be one of the team’s most productive and instinctual contributors through 10 games. He even managed to earn NFL Defensive Rookie of the Month honors for October. He did so while manning the middle linebacker position in the Chiefs’ 4-3 defense in recent weeks, which is arguably the most challenging spot to play on the field.

Why KC Chiefs’ Steve Spagnuolo isn’t giving up on struggling safety Daniel Sorensen | newspressnow

“Now had he struggled? Yeah,” Spagnuolo said. “I keep going back to the golf analogy. Golfers struggle sometimes, (even) the really good ones. But I’m happy for him and I’m hoping it can be a building block.”

6 takeaways from Chiefs CEO and Chairman Clark Hunt’s midseason update | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/6-takeaways-chiefs-ceo-chairman-201632371.html

“We think that GEHA Field at Arrowhead is still one of the finest stadiums in the National Football League,” Hunt continued. “And the renovation that we completed about 11 or 12 years ago really brought the stadium into— back into the top tier in the National Football League. Obviously, things change and the way fans want to consume the game and the kind of spaces that you need those things change over time and we’re paying attention to that. We’ve had beautiful stadiums open now in Los Angeles and Las Vegas. There will be things, when we get to the end of our lease here in nine or so years, I’m sure, that we’ll want to incorporate into the stadium. One possibility will be another renovation of Arrowhead.”

Chiefs protect practice squad WR Daurice Fountain ahead of Week 11 vs. Cowboys | usatoday

According to the NFL’s official personnel notice, the Chiefs have protected WR Daurice Fountain on the practice squad. This decision comes following the news that WR Marcus Kemp had been placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list. Connecting the dots, this could signal that the coaching staff intends to elevate Fountain to the 53-man roster via standard elevation ahead of the Week 11 game against the Dallas Cowboys..

Any specifics of the Cowboys game you are wondering about?

I’ll totally ignore your requests, but I’m still wondering.

Are the cowboys really that good , or is it just the level of competition they have had this year…?
I have to admit I’m a little nervous, but we are at home. And the defense is looking good..

Good morning guys!

Apparently, people in the media think this game is going to be epic. And of course, almost all are saying that DAL (their darlings) will win. But. We at AG know the truth. The prognosticators among us have seen the outcome. With this in mind, here is my latest Chiefs’ song parody, set to an 80’s song by the one-hit-wonder group Thin Lizzy (who?)

I present: “The ‘Boys Are Going Down” (to the tune of, “The Boys Are Back in Town”)

Please read, rate, comment on the link, share. THANKS TO CHIEFSBLINDERSON WHO TWEETED MY LAST POEM! YOU ROCK! And as always – GO CHIEFS!

Ok. Ok. My knowledge of late 70’s bands masquerading as one hit wonder 80’s bands is apparently not as good as it could be. 😀 Still, this IS the only song of theirs I recognize.

Fair enough, and for many casual listeners it’s the only song of theirs that is easily recognized. Their cover of “Whiskey in the Jar” from 1972 was incredible.

“The Boys Are Back in Town” came out on the 1976 album “Jailbreak.” Lineup changes and drug issues, particularly Phil Lynott’s addiction to cocaine, plagued Thin Lizzy after 1979’s phenomenal “Black Rose: A Rock Legend” (their best album by far, though anything between Fighting” and “Chinatown” is good), and by 1983 they were done.

This song doesn’t have the classic Lynott/Robertson/Gorham/Downey lineup, but Robertson was replaced by Gary Moore, one of the top guitar players out of 1970s Ireland. This came off of “Black Rose: A Rock Legend,” which as mentioned is considered their artistic pinnacle.

You should hang out on the Open Thread this evening. I feel like I’m in a Thin Lizzy mood.

You mean they have more songs that apparently were hits but most people have never heard of? 😀 And you mean you haven’t played all of their works? 😀

Not even close, friend.

Their first two albums dabble a bit in folk-rock sentiments, but then came “Vagabonds of the Western World,” which would solidify them among rock acts of the 1970s. Lineup changes soon followed, and by 1975’s “Fighting” album they became one of the top acts. And among the first (along with Wishbone Ash; see post on last night’s Open Thread) to have dual-lead guitar harmonies. Another group that does that is a little act called Iron Maiden, who often cite Thin Lizzy among their influences.

See for yourself:

Never heard the Cowboy song either. Might have made a good choice for a parody, if people actually knew it.

They were also a fantastic live act, one of the best out of the 1970s. The twin-lead-guitar attack, particularly on songs like “Emerald,” was amazing. “Live and Dangerous,” their “official” live album, allegedly has parts rerecorded in the studio, overdubs added in, etc.

This album, with the same lineup (but from the previous year), does not.

It is.

And actually I misspoke earlier (but just now caught it): heroin is what tore the band apart. That is apparently a heck of a drug as well, since Lynott’s voice sounds terrible post-Chinatown.

1983:

Yesterday I posted this in response to whether or not Hoosier was burnt out and our search for extra help with the huddle, but it was late… so have it MOAR.

The Huddle is everyday. I don’t want to write everyday. Hoosier doesn’t want to write everyday. We just want someone that can fill in every once in awhile if need be and contribute in other Chiefs writings as well.

Hoosier and I will be around, EA and Third. Tony and BRaG, KnightWolf behind the scenes and others… it’d be nice to have about 5 more fans that could write every now and again and someone else efficient in doing the Huddle for when Hoosier wants to go more than 24 hours without logging on to AG. You know.
