Good morning, AG!

Today in Chiefs history, Marty Schottenheimer was named head coach in 1989, Steve Spagnuolo was hired in 2019, and Antonio Hamilton was born in 1993.

The first Boy Scout troop was established in 1908 in England, Winston Churchill died 1965, in Apple’s Macintosh was premiered in 1984, Thurgood Marshall died in 1993, and the rover Opportunity landed on Mars in 2004.

Chiefs now home underdogs vs. Bengals in AFC Championship Game | Chiefswire

According to Tipico Sportsbook, Kansas City (15-3) are 1-point underdogs against Cincinnati (14-4) next Sunday. The over/under point total is set at 47 points scored, which is 3.5 points fewer than their regular season matchup and .5 points fewer than the opening total. The money line is now +100 for the Chiefs, giving K.C. a 50% implied win probability. It was previously -120 for the Chiefs, which tells me that the amount of money bettors are placing on the Bengals has oddsmakers moving the lines.

Chiefs release CB Chris Lammons from 53-man roster | Chiefswire

According to the NFL’s daily personnel notice, the Chiefs have released veteran CB Chris Lammons from the 53-man roster. Lammons’ 322 snaps on special teams during the season were the most by any player in Kansas City and just as recently as this past week, Lammons tied for the most snaps on special teams. 2022 marked Lammons’ third season with the Chiefs, with 42 game appearances, mostly playing special teams in that span.

Chiefs snap counts: Jaylen Watson plays most snaps since Week 7 | Chiefswire

The defense played seven fewer snaps compared to the offense, which speaks to the four punts they forced and the fourth-quarter fumble recovery and interception.

Chiefs QB Chad Henne says mental reps in practice kept him ready | Chiefswire

“Yeah, I mean, mental reps are big,” said Henne. “I mean, Shane (Buechele) and I and Chris (Oladokun) are always in the back. When Patrick (Mahomes) is up there on offense, we’re in the back doing the drops, doing our run reads as well. So we’re always in the back doing mental reps. But at the same time, after practice, we get with a couple of receivers, and we throw with them, not that they’re the starters. But we kind of get those reps that Patrick got in practice that will get after practice.”

Patrick Mahomes, Chris Jones Lead Six Chiefs on PFWA All-NFL, All-AFC Teams | Chiefswire

iiiA total of four Kansas City Chiefs players made the All-NFL team, which is tied with the San Francisco 49ers for the most by a single team. This comes a season after they had no players make the All-NFL team. They were also well-represented on the All-AFC team, with a total of six players selected, the most by any single AFC team.

https://sports.yahoo.com/49ers-de-charles-omenihu-arrested-on-suspicion-of-domestic-violence-174304773.html

Omenihu, 25, was arrested in San Jose after police were called to a home to investigate a domestic violence report. When they arrived, Omenihu’s girlfriend, whose name is being withheld, alleged that Omenihu had pushed her to the ground during an argument. According to the police, she complained of pain in her arm, but declined to seek medical treatment, and the officers claim to have seen no visible injuries.

Ok.
# of penalties against us from 2018 on (rank) by Cheffers crews
2018: 15th (not bad)
2019: 5th
2020: 1st (3 games, avg 10.3 a game against us)
2021: 2nd (SF #1, 3 game vs our 2, but both avg 7/gm)
2022: 3rd

His crews avg about 8.2 penalties against a team per game
His faves: False start (probably everyones), Off. Holding, DPI, Unnecessary roughness, Def Holding. Only 6 Roughing the Passer, and at lest one was pure bullshit.

So is Lammons the reason for the pour tackling on kickoffs? I just wonder why we are cutting a guy with so many ST reps?

I assume they think he’s the least likely to be claimed by another team, and he can still be elevated on gameday if the numbers work out OK. I’ll be interested to see if the Chiefs have 3 QBs active on Sunday.

But just to keep him from being able to play in the playoffs. That’s one of the most classless moves I’ve ever seen a football team make. Guy practices and plays all year to get a shot to play in the playoffs and the Bengals screw him over just for the hell of it. I think it’s crap. It’s not a strategic move against the Chiefs as it is just screwing over a player.
I hope the Chiefs present him his Super Bowl ring in the Bengals locker room.

Offended by colors of f*cking candy!!!

I fully agree with you, but it wasn’t the “color” of the candies that bothered people. It was the apparent drift to make them “inclusive”.
1) It’s candy. People need to get a damn grip
2) It’s candy. It doesn’t need to make social commentary. Not everything needs to be a platform.
3) It’s candy. Why does it bother you so that one has high heels or sneakers or is Asian? Protecting your kids? Give me a break. From candy? The Progressive ad with the two guys in bathrobes and a new cat must send you into convulsions.

That said, I’m disappointed in Mars for caving. I think it was a silly, needless drift into social commentary by a company, but once there, stand firm. There wasn’t anything “wrong” with it

https://www.kshb.com/sports/how-chiefs-fare-when-afc-championship-game-referee-ron-torbert-officiates

The Chiefs lost four of the first five games played with Torbert as the referee, but have won three of their four Tobert-refereed games since 2017.
Kansas City’s only win with Torbert refereeing during his first three seasons came in the only Chiefs postseason game he has officiated, a 30-0 trouncing of Houston in the AFC Wild Card round.

Different source: According to Pro Football Reference, home teams win 62.5 percent of the game’s Tobert calls this season (league average is 56 percent). His crew calls 10.75 penalties per game on average.

He reffed the SB last year. Bengals fans will be screaming
