KANSAS CITY CHIEFS NEWS 11/24/14
The Kansas City Chiefs signed two key players to contract extensions. Allen Bailey, who is working on his best season as a pro and has become the Starting LDE for the Chiefs had his performance rewarded with a contract extension for multiple years as did Anthony Sherman, the Chiefs Fullback who probably the best Fullback in the NFL. His contributions in blocking, pass receiving and rushing are critical to the success of the Chiefs. He was also name NFL Special Teams Player of the week two weeks ago.
More work to do
Both men are key components to the Kansas City Chiefs who also have other players who will become free agents in 2015. The list of potential unrestricted free agents(Besides Houston): Rodney Hudson(C), Ron Parker(DB), Kurt Coleman(DB), Thomas Gafford(LS), Kevin Vickerson(DE), Chris Owens(CB). These are key players to what the Chiefs have done in 2014. Ryan Harris(RT) also becomes a…
Late today it was announce that Eric Berry appears to have lymphoma, a mass in his chest. He is being transferred to Atlanta for Diagnosis after being examined in Kansas City today. The Chiefs put Berry on the Non-Football Illness list today. Berry had discomfort Thursday Night after the game. He was okay'ed to travel back to KC and was examined by Dr. Barnthouse(Chiefs lead physician) on Friday. X-rays were taken and came back negative. However, Barnthouse and other staff from KU Medical center who work with the Chiefs decided to take an MRI which was done Friday evening. A mass was detected in his right chest. Cat-scan's and other tests were performed at it was recommended that he travel to Atlanta for further diagnosis by experts in the field of lymphoma. Eric Berry, age 25, traveled to Atlanta today.
The indication for what was detected is a "lymphoma".
You can view the press conference video today,…
This past week, the Chiefs signed former Philly WR(Slot) Jason Avant. I think this is a good move, considering the condition of the Chiefs players who aren't able to hit the field. It is not a costly move first of all. That is important. It is not a salvation, hail Mary signing(such a player does not exist who is available).
What Avant gives the Chiefs is a player who is familiar with Reids basic offensive sets, someone who will run routes and get open to catch the ball. He will help take pressure off of Dwayne Bowe and Travis Kelce. He is not a YAC player. He is not an outside WR. He is not speed. He is a possession receiver. Period.
Bleeding Green Nation wrote of Avant: "Prototypical…
I remember watching the Chiefs with my father and brothers back in the mid 60s. They were AFL, they were outsiders to the NFL and I had become a fan. We watched the games in black and white on a TV that you had to get up and go over to the dial to change channels. Or go to this place to see a game:
So this week? The Kansas City…
The Chiefs signed WR Jason Avant today after his workout and the day after losing to the Dastardly Raiders. This game was a game we should not have lost but did. My bottom line on the NSLU Game Review this morning is, that Kansas City has one WR that knows how to get open, and that is Dwayne Bowe. With Kelce that is a good deal but not unless they have someone to compliment the two.
What does Avant do for the Chiefs? He gives them someone to compliment Bowe who knows how to get open. Period. He will catch the ball in traffice. You can count on it.
Right now the Chiefs have 3 wideouts and we don't know if any of the injured will be able to return. We can say this also: Avant is better for the Chiefs than the three who are injured. He is a more talented receiver. He is a possession guy. Lined up with Bowe and Kelce on the field, plus a back in the backfield who is a threat, this makes sense. Besides this, he is familiar with Reid's system.
Was he a fit for…
Wild Card is a Mess!
I hate to say it, but this game was huge in terms of the mix of AFC contenders. Not only did the Chiefs blow the possibility of playing Denver with a 1/2 game lead, they dropped from #5 to #6 in the wild card race, dropping behind Pittsburg.
Josh Sanchez laid it all out this afternoon and put it in a table which I copied from Fansided, below. I didn't do the work but here it is.
Last Night, the Kansas City Chiefs turned in a performance and the game card and it wasn't pretty. It was Sloppy, in more ways than one.
The game went into the books as a loss. The Raiders came out hopping, their defense was all over the field and the Chiefs and even Jamaal Charles couldn't save the first half. He nearly did so in the second.
In the first half? The Chiefs were 0-9 on third down. Read that ZERO-DARK-FOR-9.
The Chiefs were flat, they did not block at all up front and attempted passes fell to the ground. There were drops. There was inconsistent play. By the half? The Chiefs were down 14-0 on two RUSHING TDS BY MURRAY and in the end, the ground game by Murray gave the Raiders the opportunity to…
IT WAS, AND THEY WERE.
The Chiefs came out flat. played the first half flat. There were bright moments in the second half but the defense failed to stop the Raiders and the offense could not mount a drive with 1:45 left in the game to get possession and drive for the win.
Yes it was on the road. Yes it was way out in California. No, the Chiefs were absolutely not prepared to play football.
This loss is embarrassing. I cannot say more tonight. The right word? Foo something. Or Poo Something.
Contenders? Yeah probably still contenders to make the playoffs. But the chiefs let themselves down in this game and they let down their fan-dom in the Kingdom.
More tomorrow. I…
(NSLU: No Stone Left Unturned)
Head Coach Andy Reid stated in his press conference that they had to savor the win right now, but they had to start prep for the Raiders game on Thursday. Coaches and Staff were working on it Sunday Night(per Chiefs insider).
The game with the Seahawks was a very physical game and the Chiefs are fortunate not to have incurred any significant injuries (see the injury report). If you don't think the game was physical, then go back and look at the Game Film and the running of Marshawn Lynch who had 120 yards rushing (BUT NO TDs).
Another way to look at it, is to also look at the game film of Jamaal Charles and the run where he fumbled the football.
Still another is to look at a block by Travis Kelce down field on a run by Jamaal Charles. He totally decked Earl Thomas(#29). Mitch Holthus talked about the Chiefs being a physical team in his post game with BJ Kissel. He commented that this team was similar to a very good KC…
We all saw what Ron Parker did in the Bills contest. But this also gives you an idea of the importance of two other "Unsungs". link to the article: Here!Read more…
This afternoon, the Chiefs released offensive lineman Curtis Feight, Alum of WV and signed offensive lineman, U of Akron alum, Jarrod Pughsley. No big news in this, ie, developing players, both of them.Read more…
