KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) It's only Week 3 and already the Kansas City Chiefs are so banged up they're altering their practice schedule. The Chiefs were planning to practice in pads Wednesday, but coach Romeo Crennel said he would push that back by a day to give a lengthy list of players an extra day to heal. Tight ends Kevin Boss and Jake O'Connell and offensive lineman Ryan Lilja are being held out of practice entirely. Dexter McCluster, Steve Breaston, Anthony Toribio, Allen Bailey, Kendrick Lewis and Jalil Brown will all be limited in practice. Running back Jamaal Charles was expected to practice fully after dinging his reconstructed left knee in Sunday's 35-17 loss to Buffalo. He only carried six times for three yards in the game. The Chiefs visit New Orleans on Sunday.

Scott Pioli not ready to panic after 0-2 start

Kansas City Chiefs general manager Scott Pioli doesn’t seem too worried even though his team has started off the season with two straight losses. “If any one of us knew what the answer was, we wouldn’t be sitting where we’re sitting right now,” Pioli said, via the Kansas City Star. “But I also don’t think it’s the end of the world. We have 14 games left. We’re certainly...

Kansas City Chiefs: Week 3 NFL Power Rankings

Last week: 25 (-2) Record: 0-2 Matt Cassel is a limited quarterback, so their best chances of making the playoffs would have been to follow the solid defense, good running game, conservative offense, easy schedule, don’t make mistakes model they made it on in 2010. That doesn’t work so well if the defense doesn’t play well. Allowing 40 at home in the opener to Atlanta, missing...

After the Kansas City Chiefs fell to the Buffalo Bills over the weekend, Kansas City sports talk radio host Bob "The Bulldog" Fescoe was not pleased with the team's performance. How displeased was he? Well, he decided to go on this epic 3-minute rant about the lack of pride that the team showed for the city and even dropped a "You give people nothing to...

Chiefs not reading into Cassel's body language

KANSAS CITY, Mo. Justin Christian is a Kansas City Chiefs fan and a body-language specialist, so this month has been a little more, shall we say, conflicted than most. As a rooting interest, watching this team has turned Sunday afternoons into three hours of taking a fork to your unprotected eyeballs. But as a case study? As a case study, from a purely clinical standpoint, Romeo...

Kansas City Chiefs vs. New Orleans Saints: Three Bold Predictions

Two terrible teams, both picked to win their division by many this offseason.One has suspensions looming over their players' heads and is already on its third-string head coach, possibly caused by a little-known curse, while the other is rebuilding under a new head coach and looks positively inept.The Saints at least have a reason.They didn't look this out of sync last season...

Week 2 Fantasy Football Recap: Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills

Kansas City Chiefs – 17, Buffalo Bills – 35Ugly ugly ugly is all you can say about the Chiefs’ effort, especially QB Matt Cassel’s (304 total yards, 2 TDs, 1 INT) through about three and half quarters.  Two late touchdown passes with the game already decided are the only things that saved Cassel’s fantasy day.  At some point, the Chiefs have to wonder if there’s any...

Saints Nation: Scouting the Chiefs

Only two teams in the NFL have given up as many as 75 points through two games in this NFL season. That would be the Chiefs and the Saints. Unlike the Saints, the Chiefs have been in neither game, getting blown out of both. As dysfunctional as the Saints have been on defense, the Chiefs have been equally as bad on both sides of the ball. For a team limping into the season, this opponent...

Kansas City Chiefs at New Orleans Saints: Week 3 NFL Pick

Kansas City Chiefs (0-2) at New Orleans Saints (0-2) I don’t think anyone really knew how the Saints would respond to BountyGate and the corresponding BountyGate penalties. Would they fall flat? Would they go into eff you mode? Would it not really matter? I leaned more on the positive side because Sean Payton was an offensive coach and Drew Brees could handle the offense by himself...

Pick of the week: Chiefs (+8.5) at Saints

  Well the first two weeks have not exactly gone as planned with the weekly pick. Andrew Luck stole it last week and the Jets felt like scoring a lot in Week 1, so lets try to get back on the winning road this week. The Saints have been a disaster thus far. Everyone expected Drew Brees to act as the team leader with the absence of Sean Payton, but he can only do...

For good (& ill), 1 man can impact team

On Sunday, in a matchup between two winless teams, the Kansas City Chiefs and New Orleans Saints will showcase one of the NFL's elusive truths: That one man -- one man who does not compete on the field -- can shape the destiny of an entire organization. For the Chiefs, the 0-2 record can be traced directly to the presence and so-called leadership of general manager Scott Pioli...

Ruminating on Romeo

So I know we are still in the afterglow of the Bills’ victory on Sunday.  C.J. Spiller continues to impress.  The defense made amends for their horror–show performance in the Meadowlands a week earlier.  And at least for one week, Ryan Fitzpatrick left the turnovers to the capable right arm of Jay Cutler.  Just indulge me a moment to look back through the magic of...
