Chiefs' draft picks starting to produce late

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) John Dorsey likes to say that it takes several years before a verdict can be returned on a draft pick. There is a learning curve for rookies, often a steep one. The pro game is faster, players are stronger and the plays more complex. If that's the case, the first two draft classes of the Chiefs' general manager - panned so often by fans and pundits - may actually...

Kansas City Chiefs Bounce back against the Oakland Raiders.

A game that started off slow finished in spectacular fashion. Big plays on offense and special teams powered the Chiefs to their eighth win of the season. De’Anthony Thomas was the first to score in the game on an 81-yard punt return for a touchdown, and Knile Davis was the last Chiefs’ player to score a touchdown on a 70-yard catch-and-run. The Chiefs’ offense looked quite...

Is De’Anthony Thomas of the Kansas City Chiefs the NFL’s best punt returner?

The last time we talked about the best kick returners in the NFL it was back in October, when Devin Hester of the Atlanta Falcons took home the number one spot in our power rankings. This time I mixed it up by separating punt returners from the herd and ranking the top ten based exclusively on punts. To determine the rankings I used a combination of traditional stats plus an extra...

Rookie Ford says if Chiefs had a problem with him, they would 'make that known'

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- He doesn't see you when you're sleeping (we hope). He doesn't know when you're awake (we think). He doesn't know if you've been bad or good (we surmise). But Dee Ford, man -- Dee Ford knows what you've been saying about him on Twitter. "I heard," the Kansas City Chiefs' rookie outside linebacker said with a knowing -- almost too knowing -- chuckle.

Is Rodney Hudson of the Kansas City Chiefs the best center in the NFL?

The NFL may be a passing league but if you ask me too much attention goes to the guy behind center and not enough on the center himself. What do Peyton Manning, Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady all have in common? They all need their centers to not screw up the snap and protect them up the middle, at the very least. Let’s find out who are the top five best centers playing in the NFL...

Return of the deep ball: Chiefs seize opportunity for big plays

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- There it was, about midway through the second quarter, something Chiefs fans likely couldn't identify at first. Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith dropped back to pass, and then, to the surprise of everyone, suddenly threw the ball seemingly as far as he could throw it. Chiefs fans had seen this type of offensive play only while watching NFL highlights of other teams...

With Chiefs' Charles banged up, Davis steps up

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Jamaal Charles sprained his ankle against Denver. He had it twisted at a gruesome angle against Arizona. His knee has repeatedly swollen up after games. He took such a blow Sunday against Oakland that he was administered a concussion test on the sideline. Heck, the star running back even hurt himself tripping over a curb while moving out of the dorms when the...

Projecting the Outcomes of the Chiefs Final 3 Games

Kansas City Chiefs WR Dwayne Bowe Auditioning for his Next Team?

The Kansas City Chiefs have made something painfully clear this season--they are not a wide receiver-oriented kind of team. It's not that they do not like to pass because they do. With the way things have gone this year they just haven't done it with their wide receivers very much choosing instead to focus on their tight ends in the passing game.As a result, Dwayne Bowe has had to...

This weekend in NFL stupid

A recap of all that was stupid during the 14th weekend of the 2014 NFL season… The stupidest combo pack of calls “The reason why we lost is the refs didn’t go our way,” said Jamaal Charles after the Chiefs were screwed by two questionable calls from rookie referee Craig Wrolstad’s crew during the second half of a three-point loss to the Cardinals. He’s got a point...
