The Kansas City Chiefs are hearing criticism from all angles. Even when they try to good things, they still are razzed about their abysmal 1-9 record.
Receiver Dexter McCluster was one of the players who took part in the team’s annual delivery of meals to low-income residents in Kansas City this week. As KSHB captured on video, one elderly lady couldn’t accept her meal without sharing some thoughts on the team.

When he responded that she needs to pray a little bit harder, she gave a zinger back.
“Y’all got to work a little bit harder.”
What can you say to that?

They’re have been snafus over Twitter, airplane banners calling for the GM’s firing and quarterback’s benching, and in the strongest example, there was this. Chiefs fans are passionate about their team, and they won

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.”

The Kansas City Chiefs need to get real for second about Matt Cassel. In the NFL, the quarterbacks always get the blame for the team when things don’t go well, but it isn’t Cassel’s fault. Chief fans are already clamoring to pick Geno Smith in the NFL draft and that would be a mistake. It’s not a mistake because of Smith not being a good quarterback, but the real issue on...
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.
Brady Quinn was a good QB at Notre Dame, he's not an NFL QB. I blame the front office for this mess.
After going a red hot 13-1 in week 11, I went 2-1 on Thanksgiving day. For the season that makes it 106-57. I'm still in striking distance of .750 for the season.
Let's take a look at week 12.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Brady Quinn is getting another shot on the Kansas City Chiefs' quarterback merry-go-round.

1. The Kansas City Chiefs select: Geno Smith | QB | West Virginia Not an elite prospect, but Geno Smith is the pinnacle of the 2013 Quarterback class, and a better option both in the short and long term than those likely to be available in Free Agency or via trade. Kansas City has [...]
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...
