Kansas City Chiefs Win The AFC West

Screen shot 2010-12-26 at 10.03 PM

Today, the Kansas City Chiefs won the AFC West (just as the Bleacher Report predicted in May). To get into the playoffs, the Chiefs controlled their own destiny. Win the last two games of the season and they’re in. They destroyed the Tennessee Titans, and remained undefeated at home this year, and as luck would have it, the Cincinnati Bengals beat the San Diego Chargers. Since we were two games ahead of the Chargers, we took the division one week early.

I had a feeling this season was going to be special when we opened up at home against the Chargers on Monday Night Football. What a great feeling to return to MNF and man-handle San Diego the way they did!

Now, they have to beat Oakland at home next week and get ready for the playoffs. Of course, I’m already dreaming of a Chiefs-Eagles Superbowl (my twin brother is an Eagles fan).

Why I think we can do it:

1. Matt Cassel is amazing! This guy has an emergency appendectomy and returns in less than two weeks! 2. The Class of 2010 - Berry, McCluster, Arenas, Asamoah, Moeaki (didn’t we used to have another TE named Tony? I can’t remember.) 3. The running game! Thomas Jones and Jamaal Charles have combined for over 2,000 rushing yards and have helped give the Chiefs the best running attack in the NFL. 4. Dwayne Bowe. With 15 TDs, this guy is a big play maker. 5. Todd Haley and Romeo Crennel

For now, number one sure looks great!

Go Chiefs!

"... and they did neither."

"The Broncos needed to win or tie today to get to the playoffs... and they did neither!" - TV announcer said at the end of the Denver / SF game! From NFL.com 12/27 nfl kc playoff hopes 122706

The Kansas City Chiefs needed a lot to happen to get to the playoffs. First, they must beat Jacksonville and then hope Pittsburgh could pull out an upset against Ocho-Cinco and the Bengals (Cincinnati went in as 6 point favorites)... and then the Niners have to upset the Broncos (10.5 underdogs).

Well, the Chiefs beat the Jaguars... check! The Steelers beat the Bengals... check! And the Niners pulled off the win, with less than 2 minutes left in overtime... checkmate!

Mike Shanahan said he's glad KC won so his team would have to win in order to make it to the post season. Thanks for the confidence coach!

A Tribute to Derrick Thomas

January 1, 1967 - February 8, 2000Derrick Thomas Linebacker -- #58 -- Kansas City Chiefs


D.T.'s longest recovery for a TD!


Anyone that knows me knows that I am huge KC fan and that Derrick Thomas was one of the largest reasons I followed the Chiefs!  D.T. had one of the most explosive jumps on the line and pursued his target with real vengeance.  Derrick Thomas also maintained his professionalism and was admired by many for how he conducted himself off the field.  This is my small tribute to my favorite football player.

Did you know? Derrick Thomas was the only Kansas City Chief player to have been on the active roster in three different decades?  Derrick Thomas was the only NFL player named as one of President George Bush's 1,000 Points of Light?  Derrick Thomas currently holds the record for single game quarterback sacks?  That's right... D.T. sacked Seattle Seahawk player Dave Krieg 7 times.  K.C. lost that game as Krieg eluded the 8th sack to throw a game winning touchdown.  That record was set on my birthday, Veteran's Day, November 11, 1990, especially meaningful for Derrick Thomas because of his admiration for his father who was killed during a tour of duty in the Vietnam War.  The name of his father's mission...??? Operation:Linebacker-2.

Goodbye #58!
