Turning point: Changing the Course of Chiefs' 2015

 The Kansas City Chiefs have gotten off to a rough start.  The NFL scheduling department didn’t help them much.  For the Chiefs to begin the season with three-out-of-four road games was a very tall order.  The Chiefs roster is relatively young and the team entered the season knowing that they would have multiple rookies and second-year players in starting roles. Experimentation...

Kansas City Chiefs: No need to panic

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports After an undefeated preseason, the Kansas City Chiefs have gotten off to a rocky 1-3 start through the first quarter of the 2015 NFL season. Since 1990, only 24 teams that started the year 1-3 have made the playoffs and only one of those teams made it to the Super Bowl. With the odds against the Chiefs to make something out of this season, there...

Where did Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West come from?

Coming into week 4 against the Bengals, it was widely presumed that Knile Davis, much like the past season, would be Jamaal Charles primary backup.  When Charcandrick West came in the game to spell Charles, it raised questions as to whom West was and to whether he had usurped Davis on the Chiefs depth chart. In total, West rushed the ball 5 times for a total of 17 yards and caught...

Chiefs lighten Charles' early-season workload despite slow start

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The Kansas City Chiefs treated Jamaal Charles like a fragile, valuable piece of jewelry in training camp, rarely letting the running back get hit in an attempt to keep him safe. Through the first four games of the regular season, not much has changed. Despite averaging more than 5 yards per carry, among the best in the league, Charles has been given the ball only...

Is Jamaal Charles of the Kansas City Chiefs the best running back in the NFL?

Yesterday we debated whether Jeremy Maclin had moved into the top 10 wide receivers in the game.  While, in our eyes, Maclin fell just short of being a top 10 wide out, the Kansas City Chiefs have another player who just might be the best player at his position in the league.  Is Jamaal Charles the best running back in the NFL?  Let’s debate When discussing the top running backs...

Grading the Kansas City Chiefs — Week 4

 The Kansas City Chiefs’ offense definitely had its flaws, but the defense (and defensive coaching) is what mainly lost the game against the Cincinnati Bengals. It’s surprising, considering the defense is supposed to be the Chiefs’ biggest strength. Unfortunately, the biggest positive that came from Week 4 was that kicker Cairo Santos finally looks reliable. The rest of the...

Are the Kansas City Chiefs the worst team in the AFC West?

Coming into the season, no one thought that this would be a question that would be getting asked four weeks in.  An argument can easily be made right now, however, that the Kansas City Chiefs, sitting at 1-3 are the worst team in the AFC West. With Denver 4-0 and both the Raiders and Chargers at 2-2, the Chiefs have the worst record in the division and have also suffered a horrible...

How Aaron Rodgers sliced and diced the Chiefs on MNF

Jamaal Charles: Packers outplayed and outcoached us

    The Kansas City Chiefs had no answers for the Green Bay Packers Monday night, and the end result was a 38-28 loss that probably could have been much worse.

One of the harshest — and funniest — sources of criticism came from former NFL kicker Lawrence Tynes, who played for the Chiefs from 2004-2006.

No Tony Romo, no problem for the Dallas Cowboys offense. Joseph Randle put the Cowboys on the board early in the first quarter in Sunday’s game against the Atlanta Falcons with a 37-yard touchdown run. The third-year running back showed some nice moves, particularly at the line of scrimmage, to break free and head toward the end zone. Who needs Romo?
