Good morning, AG!
Today in Chiefs history, in 1993, the LA TIMES, looking for something to write about Super Bowl XXVII, ran this article about Jerrel Wilson and SB IV – https://www.latimes.com/archives/la-xpm-1993-01-27-ss-2008-story.html Yeah, I got nothing right now.
Elsewhere, in 1973, the Vietnam War ended.
1967: During a simulation of a launch, U.S. astronauts Virgil I. Grissom, Edward H. White, and Roger B. Chaffee perished in a fire aboard Apollo 1.
1945: The Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz, Poland, was liberated by Soviet troops.
1880: American inventor Thomas Edison patented the incandescent lamp.
And in 1832: Mathematician and novelist Lewis Carroll, best remembered for Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (1865) and its sequel, Through the Looking-Glass (1871), was born in Daresbury, Cheshire, England. And so was one particular cat. (SWIDT?)
Anyway, on to the Arrowhead Invitational weekend news…
Here’s what could give Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes the most trouble with his ankle injury | KCStar via Yahoo
The quarterback who will soon win his second NFL MVP award operates outside the position’s intended residence more frequently than any other quarterback in the league. By a wide margin. He’s better at it than the rest of them too. By a wide margin. That’s all to say that the out-of-the-pocket, off-script, spur-of-the-moment brilliance is a significant part of what makes Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes unlike the other guys. And it’s the part we can’t be certain we’ll see Sunday.

“Before the Chiefs played the Bengals in Cincinnati, Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes was a guest on “New Heights,” the podcast hosted by Kelce and his brother, Jason, named after their hometown of Cleveland Heights, Ohio.
Jason asked Mahomes if he planned to have some chili while he was in town.
“I’m not a chili guy,” he said.
Then Kelce, who played college football at the University of Cincinnati, weighed in.
“If I look at it, and it looks like that, I’m not eating it,” he said. “If it’s coming out the same way it looks going in. … I’ll just get the noodles that it comes with.””

SUNDAY FLIGHT TO ARROWHEAD STADIUM!!

T-38’s??? I was hoping for something with teeth.
I’m getting more and more confident as game day approaches. Look for the chiefs to score at least 27 this game. It’s what our offense does. I do think that the bungholes stick around and make it fairly close but in the end the good guys prevail rather comfortably. Chiefs are 8-1 at home this year. Home field advantage is alive and well this year in the conference championship games. Prediction, chiefs score late 4th quarter TD on a longish McKinnon screen pass to make tge final score 34-24.
Look for a Kelce Brothers storyline in the SB. 49ers are 5-3 on the road this year. Losing to really shitty ass teams in Denver, Atlanta and Chicago. Flying west coast to east coast, look for Hurts to put the hurt on the 49ers “#1” defense whose ranking is built on playing crappy teams all year (with the exception of your kansas city chiefs who put the beat down on them). Final prediction 30-13 Eagles.
The QB battle that unlocked Patrick Mahomes
THE SUMMER BEFORE SEVENTH GRADE, Patrick Mahomes got summoned to the Whitehouse High School football field for a special workout . . .
A really good read!
Keeping an eye on the Bengals’ offensive line injury status. Jonah Williams and Alex Cappa DNP again today. Not a great sign for Sunday.
An injury to watch: #Bengals TE Hayden Hurst was listed as limited in today’s practice because of a calf injury.
How PFF has graded the Bengals & Chiefs this season (including playoffs)
They failed to “grade” Arrowhead
Bengals at 31st in pass blocking is definitely good news.
They stunk both times last year, too. Why we can’t take advantage of it is a mystery.
