Good morning AG! 11 degrees here in Indiana, so there’s your news! Once my fingers thaw out we’ll see what’s happening…

The Chiefs Are Their Own Biggest Enemies in the Playoffs | si.com

https://www.si.com/nfl/chiefs/podcasts/the-kc-chiefs-are-their-own-biggest-enemies-in-the-playoffs

In Week 17, a Sunday afternoon in which the Chiefs were in Ohio to play the Cincinnati Bengals, a multitude of things led to the team’s loss. Drops, missed tackles, poor coaching decisions and some outside factors (officiating was spotty, at best) doomed one of the NFL’s most talented teams. Of course, the Bengals’ talented offense helped earn the well deserved win, but the Chiefs couldn’t get out of their own way at many points in the game.

Darrel Williams close to becoming third Chief to reach 1,000 yard club | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/darrel-williams-close-becoming-third-050100750.html

Now he has the chance to join the 1,000 yard club, as he needs just 37 yards on the ground or through the air this Saturday versus the Denver Broncos to reach the milestone.

Chiefs Sign Former Division-Rival Tight End Ahead of Regular-Season Finale | heavy

“Once of the hardest working Tight End’s in football, @mbush89 has signed with the @Chiefs! A number of teams had reached out to Matt! Congrats Matt! Endurance Sports Management: ‘It’s not just representation, it’s Family!’” Endurance Management wrote on Wednesday, January 4. 

Seven QBs, zero victories. Inside the Broncos’ 12-game losing streak against Chiefs | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/seven-qbs-zero-victories-inside-150216546.html

Playing for overtime, Smith handed off to Jamaal Charles, who fumbled. Bradley Roby recovered, broke a tackle and scored the game-winning touchdown, giving the Broncos a 31-24 victory to the amazement of the announcers: Jim Nantz and Phil Simms.

And that was the last time the Broncos defeated the Chiefs, who have won their last 12 games against Denver.

Why the KC Chiefs called a blitz on third and 27, and how the Bengals exploited it | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/why-kc-chiefs-called-blitz-110000516.html

“Hindsight is 20-20, right?” defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said Wednesday in response to that question. “The thinking was we were addressing that play as a third-and-6. At the 41-yard line, any additional yardage there is going to make it a field goal for them. It’s a tie ball game. Don’t want to give up a field goal.

“So the idea was to get an incomplete pass. Again, hindsight is 20-20, but I think all the guys are comfortable we’re trying to get them to punt the ball on fourth-and-27.”

Check out our 4 players to watch as the KC Chiefs visit the Denver Broncos on Saturday | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/check-4-players-watch-kc-110000979.html

If the Chiefs win Saturday and the Titans win Sunday, or the Chiefs lose on Saturday, KC cannot earn the top seed.

Here are some players, besides the always-watchable Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs, to keep an eye on Saturday.

Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy stressing fundamentals on offense after Week 18 loss | usatoday

“[I] keep stressing fundamentals,” He said when asked about being nearly shut out in the second half. “We want to make sure that our guys understand the little things that it takes to help us to be the best team that we can possibly be. At times, we’re clicking and doing certain things, and at times, we’re not. So, we’ve got to go back always to ground zero, and that’s the purpose of why we practice. We stressed that yesterday and that was a big vocal point as well today—fundamentals and just making sure we’re detailing all the details.”

Mic’d-up video showed how Patrick Mahomes reacted to the coat fire on the Chiefs sideline | usatoday

Someone on the sideline stood too close to one of the heaters, which caused his coat to catch fire. Thankfully, nobody was hurt. And now, we’re able to laugh at the reaction from Patrick Mahomes and the rest of the Chiefs sideline.

Chiefs HC Andy Reid provides injury updates following Thursday practice | yahoo

https://sports.yahoo.com/chiefs-hc-andy-reid-provides-210613253.html

Both Edwards-Helaire and Niang were ruled out by the team in the official injury report shortly after Reid’s comments. One player who appears to be in the clear for Week 18 is LT Orlando Brown Jr., who was sidelined by a pregame calf injury against the Cincinnati Bengals.

I am stunned that anyone, even the Jags, would consider Bill O’Brien for another HC job. If they hired him, Lawrence should sit out. What a waste of his talent.

Hey guys!

So, some of you saw cryptic messages of congratulations and odd comments about audio recording earlier in one of the evening posts this week. Suffice it to say, I have nothing that can be said about that subject. So, sorry, but we’re moving on to what you really came here for.

For the last game of the regular season as we take on the Broncos, it is only fitting to share a song parody about them and how they’re feeling right now. This song parody is based on a tune by that awesome classic rock band that nobody guessed right when I put it up for guess: The Eagles!

I present, “Desperate Broncos” (sung to the Eagles’ song, “Desperado”).

https://arrowheadguys.com/chiefs-song-parody-desperate-broncos-sung-to-the-tune-of-the-eagles-desperado-2021-nfl-week-18-kc-at-den/

Please read, rate, comment on the link, and share! And if you didn’t know, at the end of this year there are plans to collect all these poems, put them into an e-book, and sell it (hopefully on this site) with all the proceeds going to a charity or foundation of one of the Chiefs’ player! And as always, GO CHIEFS!

You really don’t have much use for our QB, do you? I watched all of the players on your list except Sammy Baugh in real time. I would take Patrick over every single one without hesitation.

in terms of “Alltime Greatest” anything?

no, I don’t … none whatsoever

give him at LEAST ten years in the league and let’s see where he is … but as of now, he just “ain’t there” yet

for real, Mahomes has always reminded me a a very young gunslinger named John Elway: first got to the NFL and was throwing DEEEEEEEEEEEP all the time, ran around to buy time then tossed it 50 yards downfield (often to the opposite sideline) … great for show, but not so great in terms of actually winning football games

Mahomes *is* learning how to actually play football (not streetball) and I highly commend him for that … but as of now, he ain’t no Montana or Marino or Manning or Brees

that’s my story and I’m stickin’ to it

In his first three years as a starter: Three AFCC games in a row. Two SB appearances in a row. One SB win. He did all of this not knowing how to “actually play football”? Just because he doesn’t play the position the way you think it should be played means nothing, Andy seems to like it.We had a QB that played the game the way you like it and was replaced (maybe you’re bitter about that?) Concerning those other QB,s, if he stays healthy, he will be better than all of them. Even Montana, who I’m a huge fan of. That’s my prediction and it will come to pass. 😁

One of these things is not like the others…Jackson?
Unitas, Hutson, Brown, Baugh
I’d love to put Patrick in this, but everyone else (that belongs here) did it for an entire career. I’m hoping we don’t know how great Patrick is for another 15 years
