Sign on San Diego:
The Chiefs’ goal-line stand at Oakland took 10 men and, in the words of Chiefs coach Todd Haley, one missile, to keep the Raiders out of the end zone on Sunday. That missile was inside linebacker Derrick Johnson.
BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Derrick Johnson seems to be getting better and better.
Kansas City's inside linebacker came into his own last year, compiling a team-high 147 tackles as the Chiefs won the AFC West.
Last week in a 28-0 shutout of Oakland, Johnson had perhaps his best game since he was drafted in 2005. He had 12 solo tackles, and got credit for three of the four stops in a goal-line stand while...
The Chiefs' goal-line stand at Oakland took 10 men and, in the words of Chiefs coach Todd Haley, one missile, to keep the Raiders out of the end zone on Sunday. That missile was inside linebacker Derrick Johnson, who was credited with stops on three of the four downs inside the Chiefs 5, including dropping Michael Bush for no gain from the 1 on fourth down.
Much attention has come to inside linebacker Derrick Johnson for his role in the goal-line stand the Chiefs defense had Sunday in Oakland.
One tackle, two tackles, part of a third tackle and then the deciding fourth stop of Michael Bush on fourth-and-goal at the Kansas City 1-yard line those were all the work of the seventh-year linebacker and former first-round draft choice out...
After turning in an impressive 2010 campaign, most of us knew the Chiefs were somewhat of a pretender. Very few expected Kansas City to come out this season and enjoy the type of success they had a year ago. When Jamaal Charles went down with a season-ending injury, common sense would tell you the Chiefs [...]
At the beginning of the month, the Kansas City Chiefs were 0-3, had been outscored by opponents by 92 points and were facing a season without their best offensive and defensive players, who were lost to injury. With a start like that, it's no wonder head coach Todd Haley didn't feel like shaving.
So the third-year coach kept the stubble before Kansas City's fourth game...
When things looked darkest for the Chiefs this season, coach Todd Haley found a light in an unlikely place. He dug a movie out of the vault of NFL Films.
Today on Out of Bounds, NFL Draft Guru Russ Lande, joins the podcast to talk about the Chiefs remarkable comeback this season and his thoughts on Head Coach Todd Haley.
Not everyone recalls how Pittsburgh's 1989 team reached the playoffs after a ghastly 0-2 start, but Chiefs coach Todd Haley did -- and used it to his advantage.
The Chiefs used Jon Baldwin mainly as a slot receiver in his NFL debut last week in Oakland. That’s a spot usually reserved for a smaller, quicker player. But coach Todd Haley said that may be Baldwin’s role, at least for the time being.
This week, Neil Tillman and I show our pretty faces. (Actually, my pretty face and Neil's probably-not-so-pretty face.) We discuss the Miami Dolphins' divided locker room, Reggie Bush and Yeremiah Bell stinking it up, Bill Cowher's coaching status, Carson Palmer's 15-plays-or-under mentality, Todd Haley's excitement for Novembeard, and much, much more...
Three straight wins will do this: Any perceived discord between Chiefs coach Todd Haley and general manager Scott Pioli is nothing more rootless chatter, according to their boss, chairman Clark Hunt.
Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt expressed confidence in general manager Scott Pioli and coach Todd Haley on Thursday, saying the relationship between the two is strong enough to allow the Chiefs to compete for a Super Bowl championship. "Absolutely," Hunt told The Kansas City Star during an interview. "There's no question about that."
