ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- The question lobbed from the back of the media scrum was something of a throwaway, one last query for Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson as he headed from the practice field to the locker room.
It wound up stopping him in his tracks.
"You're 32. Have you given any thought to how much time you want to keep doing this?"
"First of all," Johnson...
The Kansas City Chiefs made headlines Sunday night even though the team’s season ended weeks ago. The Chiefs had the most players of any team at the NFL Pro Bowl in Honolulu and Chiefs linebacker, Derrick Johnson, finished the night by taking home an award as the game’s Defensive MVP. Johnson was just one of the Chiefs’ 10 Pro Bowlers in last night’s game.
Ten Pro Bowlers...
The NFL has been the most popular sport for the last 30 years. It also happens to be one of the most violent sports, and sometimes players accidentally wind up hurting a teammate just from being at the wrong place at the wrong time. But it’s incredibly rare for an All-Pro linebacker to clash into an All-Pro running back when the two star players are on the same team. That...

The Kansas City Chiefs play their final home game of the season on Sunday when they take on Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts have already clinched the AFC South this season, but the Chiefs look to keep the possibility of winning the West...
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Derrick Johnson isn't going to kick his old college coach while he's down. Or on his way out.
"You know, it's a hard deal for anybody to step down from a job that's probably the best job in college football," the Kansas City Chiefs' linebacker said Wednesday when asked about soon-to-be-ex-Texas coach Mack Brown. "He's done...
The Kansas City Chiefs are on a two game losing streak, after losing Sunday to the San Diego Chargers. This week the Chiefs will face the Denver Broncos again, after losing to them two weeks ago in Mile High. But after losing their last two, they don’t sound like a particularly confident bunch. The Chiefs […]
This is precisely what Derrick Johnson envisioned when he first stepped into the Kansas City Chiefs locker room as a wide-eyed rookie coming off a record-setting career at Texas.
He expected to be a Pro Bowl player. He expected the Chiefs to win more than they lost. He expected to be the face of the team, the best player on the field, just as he'd been going back to his schoolboy...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- For one moment, the quiet man could be heard for miles.
With 11:48 left in a 3-point game between the Kansas City Chiefs and Cleveland Browns, tailback Chris Ogbonnaya cut out of the backfield and across the middle, settling into a short bit of free real estate just beyond the line of scrimmage.
His eyes met those of quarterback Jason Campbell. The Cleveland running...
Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson was the only player to utter what everyone must have been thinking Sunday afternoon: Kansas City's 31-3 loss to Miami looked awfully familiar.
It was only a couple months ago that the Chiefs were getting outscored 89-10 while dropping their first two games of the season.
There's a difference between Sunday's loss at Miami and those...

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...
