Chiefs news for Jan 23, 2023

Jump to Tweets | Jump to comments

Good morning, AG!

Today in Chiefs history, in 2000 Derrick Thomas is left paralyzed in a car accident. In 2009 Herman Edwards was fired as head coach. On a much happier note, the Chiefs beat Bills in OT in maybe best game ever, to advance to AFCCG in 2022

In other history, it was a bad day to be famous. Larry king, Jack LaLanne, and Johnny Carson all die, in 2021, 2011, and 2005, respectively.

1997: The Age of Aquarius dawned, some astrologers believe, because for the first time since 1475 a number of planets, the Sun, and the Moon were aligned in a perfect six-pointed star in the first degrees of Aquarius, AND Madeleine Albright, who had earlier served as U.S. ambassador to the UN, assumed under President Bill Clinton the office of secretary of state, becoming the first woman to hold that cabinet post. Coincidence? You decide

1986: The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland inducted its first class, which included Chuck Berry, Fats Domino, and Elvis Presley.

1977: The TV miniseries Roots, an adaptation of Alex Haley’s best-selling novel, debuted. It became one of the most popular TV shows ever, and like most other wildly popular TV shows, I never saw any of it

1964: With the passage of the Twenty-fourth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, which prohibited the federal and state governments from imposing poll taxes before a citizen can participate in a federal election, the US finally decided charging people to vote wasn’t the best way to promote Democracy

Now, let’s look at some news about our Chiefs

Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes Undergoing MRI on Injured Ankle | NESN

https://nesn.com/bets/2023/01/chiefs-patrick-mahomes-undergoing-mri-on-injured-ankle/

Although he was able to return against the Jacksonville Jaguars, there are still some concerns regarding the severity of Patrick Mahomes’ ankle injury. (Understatement of the Year contender, right there)

Report: Chiefs’ Patrick Mahomes Diagnosed With High Ankle Sprain | sanluisobispo.com

https://www.sanluisobispo.com/sports/article271493867.html

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes has been diagnosed with a high-ankle sprain following Kansas City’s victory over the Bills in the AFC divisional round, according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Chiefs Patrick Mahomes Has A High Ankle Sprain, Here’s What This Means | Forbes

https://www.forbes.com/sites/brucelee/2023/01/22/chiefs-patrick-mahomes-has-a-high-ankle-sprain-heres-what-this-means/?sh=6b3be3754b26

Clearly, the stakes are a little different from that West Side evening adult league flag football game against the team captained by the person that robbed you of that promotion three years ago. So the Kansas City team trainers may try to push the timeline earlier, much earlier, depending on what Mahomes can handle. This will mean that Mahomes will definitely not be 100% for next Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals. Ideally, you want to have full range of motion and full strength in the ankle before returning. You’ll want to make sure that your balance, coordination, and proprioception are back to normal.

On a day when his quarterback had to play through an ankle injury, Chiefs star tight end Travis Kelce more than picked up the slack. He set an NFL playoff record along the way, too.

Here’s a look at how the stock is trending for some players after the divisional round playoff game

We were robbed of the Patrick Mahomes story we wanted. We got a better one instead | KCStar via Yahoo

https://www.yahoo.com/news/were-robbed-patrick-mahomes-story-050236102.html

We were robbed of the story we should have received Saturday — the best player on the planet trying to bounce-back from the worst game of his life. It was a pretty compelling one, too. This was, after all, his first playoff game since that second-half collapse against the Bengals in last year’s AFC Championship Game. That’s the story we wanted. Not the one we got.

The Chiefs Are A Machine | Defector

https://defector.com/the-chiefs-are-a-machine

The Kansas City Chiefs beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 27-20 on Saturday, and it never felt that close; the Chiefs looked as efficient as ever.

Andy Reid Made NFL History On Saturday | thecoldwire

The Chiefs’ 27-20 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars gave him his 10th playoff win with the team. This win made him the first NFL coach in history to take two separate teams to 10 playoff wins each.

In every nook and cranny of the Arrowhead Stadium visitors locker room, the pain emitting over a transformative Jaguars season coming to an end made any consoling gesture feel hollow.

Didn’t really want to deal with cincy again this season but here we are. If we’re gonna win this game three things must happen. No turnovers on offense. Knock burrow on his keister a few times and get some turnovers ourselves. We cannot rely on Patrick doing Patrick things with a sprained ankle. The defense needs to play lights out.

Chiefs win @ cinn – if 87 doesn’t fumble. 87 rarely fumbles.

I’m not worried @ all.
Chiefs win Sunday!

15 has BEAST dna!!

The TEAM knows 15 not 100% — we’ll see defense, special teams & running game — play like: We got this 15!!

We were always going to have to beat the Bills and/or bengals. We have a home game against the Bengals to get to the super bowl. Pat’s ankle is the only real question mark for me. He’s not tge type of qb that needs to drive off his back leg but it does take away some of his scramble God play ability.

As far as the D. Burro is going to get his but this D is much younger and hungrier and only getting better.

I need to add to this comment for those that think we should respect our opponents. If you don’t think cincy will be targeting Patrick’s ankle in an effort to knock him out of the playoffs I have a bridge in Manhattan for sale. This can be a nasty sport and that is exactly what’s going to happen on Sunday. The heck with the bengals and the horse they ride in on.

Not really sure what your point is, but if you think the Chiefs are beating the bengals with Henne your either smoking some extremely strong weed this afternoon or the altitude in CO is getting to you. I’m leaning towards both. 😉

Dear bob sutton, oops i mean spags
Can we please limit the amount of shitty cover 3 or 4 or 6 that we run on Sunday? Burrow is too good for that and our lbs have a hard time getting the proper depth. Man up and blitz this asshole. I rewatched our first match up and there was a lot of McDuffie on chase but also waaaaaay too much soft zone. Presumably for fear of being beat deep? They will dink and dunk all the way down the field. We need to play agreessive defense especially if mahomes is in anyway hindered.

Chiefs need to overload & blitz!!!
Especially the (3) backup CINN offensive linemen — JUST like bucs did to chiefs in SB.

Cinn QB is 2nd BEST in NFL @ getting ball out quick. Chiefs will see alot of what Jags did – alot of quick – bubble screen passes & slant patterns. Only way to disrupt that JAM TE/WR off the line AND blitz!!!

1st Bucs qb @ getting ball out quick
3rd Jags qb

RE Dallas BrainTrust behind fin final play

Hoping Andy Reid and Dave Toub are smart enough to hire a Rugby coach to train special teams for a final non-hailmary play… ie giant wing play modified for nfl scrimmage rules.

Can someone inform the Bengal players that their front office is also “refunding AFC Championship tickets” this morning, that they themselves had the ‘audacity’ to sell prematurely.

Sick of the ignorant headlines if major news sites referencing the “dis” of neutral field tickets having been sold.

SideBar:
You know who isn’t refunding AFC Championship Tickets today?
