KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Like a lot of locals, Steve Price went into fall Sundays wearing red and came out of them raking leaves and muttering obscenities. Before Week 1, hed even purchased the ultimate dude vanity item, a flat-screen TV explicitly for the man-cave. Hed branded himself an NFL lifer, having embraced 49ers games when he lived out west.
Then he met the 2012 Kansas City Chiefs. Oh, doctor.
This past Sunday (a 28-6 loss to Cincinnati), I didnt even watch the game, screw it, grumbled Price, director of operations at Painted Hills Golf Club in Kansas City, Kan., one of the metros more popular public courses. And Ive got a friend of mine down the street that has tickets in the 12th row, on the 40-yard line, and he called me and he wanted me to go. I said, Ive got a million things I feel like doing I dont really want to go.
I like to watch them, but (expletive), when they get their (expletive) kicked, I know theyre going to lose, whats the point? Its really sad. Its really sad...

An elderly woman received a turkey from Chiefs WR Dexter McCluster, and she let the player hear it about the team's struggles.
Kansas City Chiefs running back/wide receiver Dexter McCluster delivered a Thanksgiving meal to an elderly fan and was given an earful for the Chiefs’ woes this season.
“Y’all better start winning some games,” Ms. Louise said. “I’ve been praying, but y’all got to work a little bit harder.”
After signing a few autographs and delivering the meal, McCluster acknowledged...
The Kansas City Chiefs waived offensive lineman Rich Ranglin on Saturday and elevated wide receiver Jamar Newsome from the practice squad to the 53-man roster.
Newsome originally joined the Chiefs' practice squad in December 2011 after playing two games with Jacksonville that season. The former Central Florida player also spent time on Pittsburgh's practice squad.
Kansas City Chiefs wide receivers Dwayne Bowe (head/back)
and Jonathan Baldwin (head/neck) were among the players that were able to fully
practice yesterday, while offensive linemen Brandon Albert (back) and Ryan
Lilja (knee) didn’t participate once again.
Bowe was able to suit up for last weekend’s matchup against
the Cincinnati Bengals, but he exited to game due to injury...
Kansas City wideout Dwayne Bowe, who sat out the entire second half Sunday against Cincinnati with neck and back problems, is probable for Sunday's game against Denver, according to coach Romeo Vrennel who expects him to play.Fantasy Spin:That's the good news. The bad news is that Brady Quinn is his starting quarterback and he'll be covered by the talented Champ Bailey.
Denver Broncos (7-3) at Kansas City Chiefs (1-9)
There are two trends that apply to this game, but both of them can be neutralized by the fact that this matchup is divisional. Home dogs are 57-40 ATS off a loss as home dogs since 2002, but that only 13-10 ATS as divisional home dogs after being non-divisional home dogs. When you go back to 2002 to get a bigger sample size, that trend...
Peyton Manning says he’s not trying to do the things he did at 28. Once again, he’s trying to fake everyone out. Manning is an MVP and Comeback Player of the Year candidate. The latter is pretty much a wrap.
It’s true that he isn’t trying to do the same things at 28; he had 49 touchdowns and a passer rating of 121.1. That would be ridiculous.
Maybe he was talking about...

After ranking 23rd overall in 2011, the Denver Broncos offense has turned things around this season.
Last season, the Broncos ranked 25-of-32 among teams in points scored (309) and scored 30 points in a game on just two occasions. Needless to say, the Broncos have made great improvements in 2012.
This season, the Broncos have scored 30 points...
For the first time since he moved into their neighborhood, the Chiefs will face the Denver Broncos with quarterback Peyton Manning. Only 10 games into the season and Manning's influence over the Broncos has been very apparent as they lead the AFC West with a 7-3 record. The Chiefs are six games behind at 1-9. When Manning became available back in March, the Chiefs were one...
The New England Patriots didn't start the 2012 season with much of a bang. For many, losses to the Ravens, Cardinals, and Seahawks looked to show the weaknesses of a team on its way down in the power rankings.To make matters worse, the defense appeared just as suspect as 2011, casting more doubt on their ability to compete against the best teams in the AFC. With Peyton Manning...
Today is Thanksgiving but the only fans in the AFC West that are giving thanks are the Denver Broncos. Broncos fans are thankful that the organization got rid of Tim Tebow in favor of superstar Peyton Manning. Manning has paid off as the Broncos are 7-3 and firmly in control of the division.The San Diego Chargers, Kansas City Chiefs, and Oakland Raiders have less to be thankful for...
