Breaston, the Chiefs marquee unrestricted free agent in 2011, was one of the clubs seven inactive players in the 16-13 overtime loss to the Steelers, the first time in his five-and-a-half year career hes been a healthy scratch.
The benching capped a stretch in which Breaston has been targeted by Chiefs quarterbacks just four times in the previous five games, and he participated in a total of 10 offensive plays in consecutive games against Baltimore and Tampa Bay.
As a result, Breaston has caught just six passes for 61 yards this season, matching the number of receptions he had for Arizona in Super Bowl XLIII following the 2008 season.
Its probably unexpected, Breaston said of his lack of playing time this season, but Im really not worried about myself. Im worried about how we can win a game around here. Thats the biggest thing. My situation is smaller than what this team is going through.
The question is, how does a guy who caught 61 passes just a year ago, fall so far so fast? Breaston, 29, insists hes healthier than hes ever been.
Whats happened a little bit is that he hasnt made as many plays, so this past game he took the backseat so that we could get a younger player up to see what the younger player could do, coach Romeo Crennel said .
Hes a veteran player, and some young guys might have a little more quickness and a little bit more speed, and if you as a coach want to take a look at that speed, you have to make a move. So I did. Source: Kansas City Star Attached Thumbnails

Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli has often said free agency is a flawed way to build a team, where players available are often overpriced or on the downward side of their careers.
Sure, it's always necessary to sign a couple guys to plug holes, but Pioli would much rather draft the right guys, develop them from within the organization, and generate the kind of stability that...

Monday Night Football featured the Kansas City Chiefs traveling up to Pittsburgh to take on the Steelers, and while I had absolutely little-to-no desire to watch the game, I woke up Tuesday morning wishing that I did.

Cincinnati Bengals (4-5) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-8)
Almost every year, we have one team go from in the playoffs to 5 wins or fewer. Right now, every playoff team from last year has at least 4 wins. That means one of two things. We’re not going to have a team like that this year (only happened 1 other time in the last decade) or either Detroit, New Orleans, or Cincinnati is about...
