The Kansas City Chiefs Are the Most Boring Franchise in Football.

By Justin C. CliburnI can't be the only one who thinks this. I grew up in Oklahoma, so I've seen plenty of Chiefs games in my 25+ years of watching football . . . and the Chiefs are by far the most boring franchise over that time. It's not even close. I'd like to preface this by saying I am a traditionalist. I respect the history of the game and classic uniforms that don't change...

Ex-teammate says RoboPeyton can be beat, but you'll have to go 15 rounds

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Tell us, Jeff, please, for the love of Lamar. What the hell do we do? Because other than suiting up Priest Holmes and Trent Green again, nothing seems to work. Nothing. Nada.

Chiefs' Charles sets sights on Hall of Fame

ST. JOSEPH, Mo. -- At some point this season, likely within the first couple of games, Jamaal Charles will slide past Larry Johnson and breeze past Priest Holmes to become the Chiefs' career rushing leader. It's a goal, sure. But it's only a rest stop on the way to loftier expectations. After arguably the best season of his career and now armed with a new contract extension, Charles...

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- We all know Jamaal Charles was sensational in 2013. For much of the season, Charles simply was the Chiefs' entire offense.

Chiefs still in search of the missing pass rush

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Five things on the current state of the Chiefs. PASS RUSH AWOL There's no secret that a key element to the Chiefs' defense is the pass rush. And without that pass rush, the Chiefs' defense can look pretty toothless, as has been the case the past three weeks.
