Good morning AG! Let’s see what’s going on!

Chiefs release updated depth chart for Week 13 | usatoday

There were a couple of changes to the 53-man roster this week, but the most recent transactions didn’t go through before the team published their latest depth chart. That means those changes (like the return of Kyle Long) won’t be reflected on the depth chart this week. Remember, these depth charts are considered to be “unofficial” because they are assembled by the team’s PR staff, instead of the coaching staff, which means you should take them with a grain of salt. They don’t always reflect what will actually happen in a game.

Former Chiefs TE Daniel Brown reunites with Jets after release | usatoday

When the Kansas City Chiefs traded veteran guard Laurent Duvernay-Tardif for tight end Daniel Brown, the move reeked of financial trickery. Brown is a seventh-year player with limited offensive experience but showed a lot of upside as a special teamer with the New York Jets in recent seasons.

Denver Broncos must wrestle history to earn division lead in Kansas City | espn

https://www.espn.com/blog/nflnation/post/_/id/318968/denver-broncos-must-wrestle-history-to-earn-division-lead-in-kansas-city

But none mattered to the current state of the rivalry more than Dec. 31, 2017. On a cloudy, 17-degree day in Denver, a 22-year-old Patrick Mahomes made his first NFL start at quarterback for the Chiefs.

And while Mahomes threw his first career interception (Darian Stewart made the play) and did not have his first 300-yard passing performance (he finished with 284 yards), the Chiefs still won 27-24. Even then, it was abundantly clear young Mr. Mahomes was going to be a significant issue for all things Broncos for years to come.

Especially since the Broncos’ own first-round quarterback that day — Paxton Lynch — threw two interceptions and was sacked five times in the last of his four career starts for the Broncos. That’s known as one football ship passing another — like at Cigarette boat speed — in the night.

“Really, (Rashad) Fenton is the only injury we have,” Reid said. “He strained his knee a little bit. So he won’t practice today.”

Former Chiefs Draft Pick Signs With AFC Contender | heavy

A 2020 draft pick of the Kansas City Chiefs has found a new home. Defensive back Thakarius “Bopete” Keyes has signed to the New England Patriots practice squad, according to the NFL’s official transaction report.

I Tried All Of The Food At The Kansas City Chiefs Arrowhead Stadium, And These Were The Best | yahoo

https://news.yahoo.com/tried-food-kansas-city-chiefs-190000728.html

When I was thinking of where to start my Stadium Eats journey, I looked no further than GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium. Home to the Kansas City Chiefs (Super Bowl winners in 2020!) and home to the best tailgate in the NFL, or so the fans say. Besides being known for their killer BBQ, the Chiefs take home the crown for being the loudest stadium in America. When the venue is at full capacity—76,416 people—the crowd mimics the sound of a jet flying 100 feet over your head.

Which Teams Are Getting the Best ROI On Offensive Investments? | the33rdteam

One of the more popular ways to measure the success of a play in the NFL is Expected Points Added, abbreviated as EPA. Teams aim to have a high offensive EPA and a low defensive EPA, resulting in the maximum expected number of points scored while allowing the fewest. This metric can then be averaged throughout a season. 

In order to see which teams have successfully constructed productive rosters, let’s take a look at which teams have gotten the best and worst returns on their player contracts. This is the second part of the series following our previous article,“Which Teams Are Getting the Best ROI On Defensive Investments,” and this article will focus on the ROI for offensive

Chiefs look to continue win streak, Broncos take it personally | fox4kc

“We haven’t beat them in a while and the hatred runs deep,” Broncos linebacker Bradley Chubb said. “When we do get over that hump everybody is going to be rejoicing and moving on to the next one.”

Hey guys! So, I know what the song I’m going to parody for my Chiefs’ poem tomorrow… AND I know what group. Can you guess?

The genre is: CLASSIC ROCK! Take your best guess what group!

I could see this:

Something about opposing defenders when trying to sack Mahomes.

“All in all it’s just a-
nother stop by the Wall” [the O-line].

“We will read your third-down blitzes
We will stop your pass-rushing
No stopping our guys in the backfield
Defense leave our Pat alone…
Hey! Defense! Leave our Pat alone!”

I meant what rock group does the song come from that I’m parodying. Not which position group of the Chiefs’ I’m focusing on.

“I… wanna block for Pat all night…
And stop D every day!

“You say you’re gonna blitz our QB
Well first you gotta get around me
I’ll block your rush, I’ll pancake you…

You say you’re gonna hit for a loss
Well guess what, you’re gonna get stopped
I’ll block your rush, I’ll pancake you…

We keep advancin’, we keep advancin’! [What?]
I… wanna block for Pat all night…
And stop D every day!”

I’m going to guess Thin Lizzy? You did them last time, but also got a bit more exposure to their non-“Boys are Back in Town” songs, so they may be fresh in your mind.

All good answers. None of them right.

As it turns out, I’m sure that the song I was thinking of I will save until the 2nd time we play the Broncos as I know it will be more fitting then. This time, I considered doing it to REM based on their song “Orange Crush” (with the name, “Orange Crushed”) but it’s a weird song lyrically and it’s just not coming. I’ll shift gears and plan something else.

Almost through our two-week drought of no Chiefs football.

That’s the disadvantage of the bye week.

Thanks Hoosier!

I posted this last night but here it is in case you missed it… Travis Kelce, Tyreek Hill, and Patrick Mahomes arrived at an intervention held by EAFOX and his ex-wife with the entire offensive line as well as Mecole Hardman, Josh Gordon, DRob, and Byron Pringle. EAFOX started the conversation – “We are here to get to the bottom of the stagnant offense we have witnessed for a good part of the year cause we are better than what we have been showing. What is the problem?” Patrick started with his traditional unselfish leadership by saying, “Well, the problem begins with me. I need to get better.” EAFOX interrupted – “Wait, let’s be real here – offensive line – talk to me.” Thuney spoke up first, “I block my man.” Creed added, “I block my man.” and Tre chimed in, “I block my man as well.” The conversation stopped and EAFOX turned and said, “Orlando? Niang?” Orlando said, “I can block my man if he does not have speed.” Niang said, “I can block my man if he does not move.” The offensive line looked at each other, hung their heads, and said, “We are having some growing pains.” The ex-wife let out a fat-induced laugh – “I am always having growing pains.” She continued, “I know that I gained weight by eating these potato chips right now.” EAFOX exploded, “You obese 375 degree woman, quit eating the receivers.” Mecole Hardman started to cry out loud – “I drop the ball. I drop the ball. I drop the ball.” EAFOX was about to concur with the error prone receiver but, surprisingly, both Travis Kelce and Tyreek Hill showed sympathy. Travis started, “I dropped my beard look but it came back and all is alright.” Tyreek said, “I dropped my son but he got back up and all is alright.” Mecole shouted, “I see the light – I know I can catch those balls in every sense of the word.” The phone rang – Willie Gay was on the phone but we told him to call back later. Josh Gordon… Read more »
