Chiefs OC Eric Bieniemy praises WR Byron Pringle after Week 16 breakout performance | chiefs wire

Even down one of their most potent weapons in TE Travis Kelce, the offensive unit managed to put together one of the most impressive showings to date with ruthless precision. They relied on the unsung heroes of their depth chart for major production in the process. One of the most influential players in the Week 16 win was fourth-year receiver Byron Pringle, who led the team in receiving yardage (75) and finished the day with two touchdowns to show for his monumental efforts.

The Kansas City Chiefs Are Still the Most Intimidating Team in the NFL | The big lead

https://www.thebiglead.com/posts/nfl-most-intimidating-team-good-morning-football-chiefs-01fr65agtf6a

The Chiefs quarterback remains the most fear-inducing offensive player in the NFL. He leads an offense that found the promised land after wandering weirdly for several weeks. They’ve averaged nearly 40 points per game over the last three weeks and have reached the 30-point plateau in more than half their games. Then there’s the defense, which has held opponents to 12.8 points per contest during an eight-game winning streak. In five of those, they’ve limited the damage to 10 or fewer points.

Chiefs DC Steve Spagnuolo sees ‘a young Tom Brady’ in Bengals QB Joe Burrow | nfl.com

https://www.nfl.com/news/chiefs-dc-spagnuolo-sees-a-young-tom-brady-in-bengals-qb-joe-burrow

“Really, really impressive,” Spagnuolo said of Burrow. “This may sound crazy, but I see a young Tom Brady. This guy does everything. He does not look like a second-year quarterback that missed a lot of his first year, totally impressed with him. Began the meeting on Tuesday, we were just finishing up on the last game, but began the meeting talking about Joe [Burrow] because he’s that good. All the weapons we’ve talked about and all that, but you’ve got to have a quarterback that can get it done, and he really does. We’ve got to find out some ways to make him uncomfortable. Easier said than done.”

Looking into my crystal ball I see us not losing another game until pre-season.

A cool version.

I wonder what tomorrow has in mind for me
Or am I even in it’s mind at all
Perhaps I’ll get a chance to look ahead and see
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball
Soon as I find myself a crystal ball”

NFL Coach & Coordinator Salaries.

Further down the scale are offensive and defensive coordinators, whose annual paydays have been edging into the $1 million range. Near the bottom are assistant coaches, who average between $200,000 and $300,000, which may not include a pension plan.

NFL head coaches salaries are announced by team.

Referee John Hussey’s crew assigned to work Chiefs-Bengals game

This is the second time that Hussey and his crew have officiated a Chiefs game this season, with the first coming against the Dallas Cowboys in Week 11. He’s one of the most veteran officials in the NFL, with 20 years of experience as a referee and line judge.

During that Week 11 game against the Cowboys, Hussey’s crew called 12 total penalties, with six against each team. Five of the penalties on the Chiefs were called against the offense compared to only one against the defense

My favorite Foster Brooks routine is where the drunk calls up the airline and tells them they need to delay the flight. Because he’s the pilot.

When my uncle retired he said he was surprised that the hardest thing was keeping tract of what day it was. He also said retirement was a lot better before his wife retired too.

Happy New Year guys. Hope none of you have lingering hangovers. Today is my anniversary too, so there is that as well.

It sounds so weird reading the tweets, and on the same week we’re playing the Bengals, there’s a post about how Travis Kelce is rooting for Cincinnati. Then you realize it’s talking about CFB and not how Kelce wants our Chiefs to lose.
