Chiefs failed to finish (again) in Pittsburgh -- and 2014 just might be finished, now, too

They huffed. And they puffed. And they huffed. And they puffed. Six times on Sunday afternoon, the Kansas City Chiefs drove as far as the Pittsburgh 28. For all that holiday shopping, this was the end result: Twelve points. Twelve stinkin' points. Four times, they came away with three. Twice, they got nada. On three occasions, the Andy Gang got to the Steelers' 15. Total points...

The bottom line? Chiefs' offensive line is quite offensive

What can we take away from the Chiefs' dreadful 20-12 loss to Pittsburgh on Sunday? Probably that the Chiefs are more than one or two players away from being a perennial playoff team. And where they are weakest is right up front, on the offensive line. The Chiefs' offensive line simply isn't good enough to mask all of quarterback Alex Smith's deficiencies. FIRST DOWN: We'll get...

SCB Steelers Wrap-Up; Steelers Break Playoff Drought By Beating Chiefs

It certainly wasn't pretty at times but the Pittsburgh Steelers are headed back to the AFC Playoffs. A very efficient game by Ben Roethlisberger and more "bend but don't break" defense led the way. Here were my thoughts as the game developed. -Excellent opening drive by the Steelers but you have to score touchdowns. Kicking field goals just isn't acceptable when you have a suspect...

It is not Chip Kelly's fault if Eagles miss playoffs

The good, the bad & the ugly in the Kansas City Chiefs’ overtime win vs. Oakland

Fresh off of a disheartening loss to the Arizona Cardinals last week, the Kansas City Chiefs responded with a relieving, playoff-hope reviving, dominating victory over the miserable franchise that is the Oakland Raiders.

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.

Jamaal Charles misses Chiefs practice on Wednesday

Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles did not practice on Wednesday. Head coach Andy Reid said earlier this week that the 27-year-old workhorse was dealing with knee and ankle soreness but did not express much concern that Charles would miss Sunday’s game against the Raiders.
