(Eds: Incorporates FBN--Chiefs-Charles. With AP Photos.) By DAVE SKRETTA AP Sports Writer The running game has disappeared. Matt Cassel looks completely lost. The defense has struggled to stop anybody, and even the special teams are looking anything but special. The Kansas City Chiefs are winless through two games - two demoralizing, one-sided losses to begin the year - and now visit the Saints to start off a brutal stretch that should decide whether the season is still salvageable. ''I don't know if it's a must-win, but we'll look at it as a must-win because we want to win it,'' Chiefs coach Romeo Crennel said Monday. ''We won't fall off the Earth if we lose, but I won't tell them that because I want there to be a sense of urgency.'' There's certainly a sense of urgency. The Chiefs follow their trip to New Orleans with games against San Diego and Baltimore, two teams looking like contenders, and then visit Tampa Bay before...

  • The problem with the Chiefs is the same problem with all pro sports in KC past present and future they do not want to spend money.They want averge players and coaches they know us as fans will show up no matter what because we love are teams.We as fans are just as much to blame as pioli and Hunter because we allow it by filling the seats.I have been a fan of the Chiefs since I was 7 now 48 and I`am sick and tired of the lies and empty promises of up managment enough is enough people.Dont go to the games I`am not saying dont watch on tv but dont go to the stadium until the understand we are done.

Matt Cassel Tops 300 Yards in Loss to Buffalo

Kansas City quarterback Matt Cassel reached 300 yards in a game for the first time since 2010 Sunday in a blowout loss versus Buffalo.Fantasy Spin:Obviously most of the yardage came in garbage time with the Bills already up by 20 so take Cassel's gaudy numbers with a grain of salt.

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...

Fantasy Football Week 3: What To Make of Jay Cutler, Jamaal Charles, Ahmad Bradshaw, and CJ168

In last week’s initial column, I talked about how I thought Hakeem Nicks would bounce back, how Wes Welker might be on the back slope, how Michael Turner is done, and how I wasn’t too sure about Chris Johnson. It turns out I was very right about Nicks, wasn’t totally wrong on Welker, appear to be very right on Michael Turner, and I’ll address CJ168 (his new nickname, based...

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...

Fantasy Football Week 3 waiver wire pickups

There are some intriguing names available on the waiver wire this week. The key word is intriguing because none of these players are going to turn your season around. However, there are some nice grab and stash options that could pay dividends later in the season.

Week Two: Sit ‘em & Start ‘em Recap + Player Pickups

In this short post I go over the Sit ‘em & Start ‘em pick that I made before the weekend, I give a list of players who had breakout games and could be worth a waiver wire pickup.  Get a hold of me on Twitter: @Blackie_Mike Start ‘Em: Cassel was one of just a few players who came threw for me in week two by throwing for 300 yards against the Bills. Matt Cassel: 301 yards...

Déjà Vu All Over Again

Here we go again Chiefs fans.  In two weeks the Chiefs have gone from promising to forgotten.  Losing to a perennial playoff contender is one thing but being blown out by a perennial loser that lost by 20 the week before is a whole other monster.  On the very small bright side, at least we didn’t lose by 34 like last year.  I’m not sure if the Buffalo Bills have the Chiefs...
