What a Difference a Bye Makes!
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, October 4, 2006 at 22:15:46
What a difference a bye makes! With Sundayís shutout/blowout of the San Francisco 49ers the Kansas City Chiefs made a bigger dent in the power rankings and fans walked away happy. Finally a hint of something to brag about! After the game I hit rewind several times. So many things went right for the Chiefs. All three phases played extremely...

Get a Grip -- No More Sour Grapes!
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, September 14, 2006 at 20:13:39
Okay Ė smack to the face Ė get a grip and focus on the Denver Broncos! Weíve had our time to vent. Everything I wanted to get off my chest about the Bengals Iíve discussed plenty. Even had an e-mail from a fella in Cali saying stop with the negative attitude! Iíll admit it, my first reaction was to walk away, but what would I do with the rest...

What Next?
By Stephen Brown on Tuesday, September 12, 2006 at 20:11:47
Cincinnati Bengals 23 Ė Kansas City Chiefs 10 It was hard to watch, but I wasnít surprised. I called it. Everything that needed to go right didnít, and everything that could have gone wrong did. It truly was the Chiefs worst nightmare. I donít make it a habit of picking the other team, especially at Arrowhead, but blame it on my gut. Iíve...

Beating the Bengals -- What Will it Take?
By Stephen Brown on Saturday, September 9, 2006 at 20:10:25
Okay, so I put myself into the minority. I actually said the Kansas City Chiefs would lose to the Cincinnati Bengals! Get a rope! Please, please donít put me in with Jason Whitlock! No, noÖNO! If youíve traveled here long you know Iím not that type, not at all. You can count on one hand how many times Iíve said ďnayĒ against the Chiefs. I know...

Da Bengals -- Are the Chiefs Ready?
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, September 6, 2006 at 20:06:11
Breakout out the ďbad callĒ brick, because the season is upon us! Preseason is over, which means so are the excuses. Either the Kansas City Chiefs have it, or they donít. Itís that simple, because starting tomorrow everything counts. I know I jumped on the ďconcernedĒ wagon during preseason. Iím honest, but I meant what I said. After watching...

Rams About the Basics: Hustle
By Stephen Brown on Friday, August 25, 2006 at 20:04:06
The million dollar question: Are the Kansas City Chiefs worried? In just about every Q&A thatís what reporters ask. Some are concerned, and besides the fact that tomorrowís game is for the annual Governorís Cup, thereís more at stake. Folks want radical improvement. After being teased by Dick Vermeil for six yearís Iím demanding it. Itís...

Zip It Until You Prove It!
By Stephen Brown on Friday, August 18, 2006 at 20:01:46
The crushing loss to the New York Giants proves one thing, talk is just chatter until you show it on the field. Zip it until you prove it! My father-in-law doesnít get worked up, but even a low-key guy like him had his hands in the air. My point? The problems the Kansas City Chiefs are having is hugely obvious, even to the ďitís just the preseasonĒ...

Chiefs vs. Giants: To Do List
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, August 17, 2006 at 20:00:59
Gary Kubiak! He knew who he was playing. Every team should use the bootleg, because until the Kansas City Chiefs figure out how to stop it, itís money! I got a whole lot of nothing from last Saturdayís game. The 24-14 loss to the Houston Texans was ugly and wasnít even close to what I expected. I didnít need a win, but something encouraging would have...

Defensive Players Shining Bright
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, August 3, 2006 at 20:00:11
Here it goesÖPLEASE COME BACK WILLIE ROAF! Crickets chirpingÖ Oh well! Everyone else has tried so I thought I would. In the meantime Kyle Turley is holding his own. Heís doing well. Now the Kansas City Chiefs just need Brian Waters to get healthy. Iím confident that he will, but again it gives folks an opportunity. Thatís what...

Getting Over It -- Willie Roaf
By Stephen Brown on Sunday, July 30, 2006 at 19:59:21
I read what Bob Gretz said and I agree. Iíve read the different posts, and FrontRunner is right, the sky isnít falling! Man if I had a dime for every time Iíve heard that. Adversity and the Kansas City Chiefs go together. When has it ever been easy for the Chiefs? Not in a long while. If it isnít one thing itís another, but thatís not always a bad...

Bring on Training Camp
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, July 26, 2006 at 19:58:06
Itís Thursday and tomorrow the Kansas City Chiefs officially start training camp. Tomorrow afternoon things will begin to take shape under Herman Edwards. The message board is buzzing. Folks like FrontRunner have been busy! I like it! That just means Wild Billís is waking up. Football is back! Iíll admit it; Iíve been a lazybones. As a...

Training Camp and Answers
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, July 13, 2006 at 19:56:41
Tired of watching NFL Network? Get enough of watching the cheerleaders? Man, I need the real thing! I know the NFL off-season is a fact of life, but they canít make me like it. Iím feeling the itch; itís only a few weeks until training camp. Time for some football! Kick off the vacation shoes and dust off the sofa, because itís time to...

He said what -- Kawika Mitchell
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, May 24, 2006 at 00:31:44
He said what? ďWe have the best linebackers in the leagueÖwe have the best defensive backs in the league!Ē Thatís what linebacker Kawika Mitchell said. Thatís what he believes. Was he just caught in the moment? Itíd be easy to do with 14,000 screaming fans. Nope! I donít think it would have mattered if there were 14 -- heís sincere. ...

Maybe a Change is Coming?
By Stephen Brown on Friday, May 19, 2006 at 00:30:34
ďWe changed some things around here last year, and they really didnít work,Ē said cornerback Patrick Surtain. ďMaybe heís the change we need.Ē Could the ďmaybesĒ turn crystal-clear? Wouldnít that be nice! Herman Edwards is still on his honeymoon, but Iíll say this, heís on the right track. Heís making sense, and thatís...

Hidden Gems -- Derrick Ross
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, May 4, 2006 at 00:28:16
The Kansas City Chiefs have been on a signing binge. They signed 15 free agent rookies shortly after the draft. Unlike the draft, which favored defense, only five are defense and the rest are offense. Now most wonít make it, but donít discount them. Consider Priest Holmes and Tony Richardson. There could be another gem just waiting to blow up and show...

Now Let the Real Work Begin!
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, May 3, 2006 at 00:26:08
The draft is over, so how did they do? USA TODAY gave the Kansas City Chiefs two stars. Thatís one star away from their ďexit stage leftĒ category. Not so hot, letís keep searchingÖoh, a ďC-ď? This site likes Tambi Hali (a coachís dream), but are uninspired by the rest. Ouch! No love here. Okay, still looking. And...

A Little of This and a Little of ThatÖ
By Stephen Brown on Tuesday, March 28, 2006 at 16:14:31
A little of this and a little of thatÖ Bored? Off-season got you down? Does Carl Peterson get you confused? Need to pass some time? Well, Iím here to help. Push your eyeball! Thereís a light show and the amusement value is about one to five minutes. Maybe your subconscious will send you a message? Like, why are you doing this! How...

A Little of This, And a Little of That
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, March 23, 2006 at 16:13:30
A little of this, and a little of that. No more T-Rich! ďI am personally disappointed that we were not able to work out a new contract for Tony Richardson,Ē said Carl Peterson. Personally disappointed? How about stupid! Too harsh, how about dumb! And whatís with this Ronnie Cruz stuff? Peterson canít smooth this one over, this hurt. ...

Cunningham Having Fun
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, February 23, 2006 at 16:09:47
I apologize for the absenceÖbut Iíve been busy. Thereís always something ďfantasyĒ to do, so Iíve been preparing for fantasy baseball. After a long season I needed the break, but it doesnít take long before thoughts on football start flowing again, so letís talk football! Weíre to the part of the off-season were Iíd rather hear a sharp object...

ExcitedÖLB Boomer Grigsby
By Stephen Brown on Tuesday, January 31, 2006 at 16:07:36
Well, if you arenítÖLB Boomer Grigsby is. ďIím extremely excited about Coach Edwards,Ē said Grigsby. ďAnyone that has such a great relationship with Coach Vermeil probably has similar personality characteristics. Iíd like to think that as much as I like Coach Vermeil and as well as they get along, then Iíll like Coach Edwards, too.Ē You...

So far so good, Herman Edwards!
By Stephen Brown on Monday, January 23, 2006 at 16:06:41
GO STEELERS! I absolutely enjoyed watching the Denver Broncos tank at home. It really made my day. That may not sound very nice; wishing ill on my AFC West neighbor, but Popeye said it best, ďI am what I am!Ē Instead of taking one Bronco fan out to lunch; heíll be wearing red and gold for an entire day. Life is good! I saw a resolute...

From the Fence
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 at 16:00:55
There are two ways to look at the hiring of Herm Edwards: Either you love Edwards or you find yourself acting like Jason Whitlock. The dark side isnít what itís cracked up to be! Iím a frequent flyer on Wild Billís message board, so I know how some Chiefs fans feel. But Iím going to stop being crabby over this. Being difficult isnít my thing. I vent and...

Another Buddy Ė Herman Edwards
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, January 5, 2006 at 21:40:25
I want Al Saunders! I want Herman Edwards! I want someone new! When Carl Peterson shops he usually leans towards those he likes best. He thinks it works, but has it? Would Herman Edwards be more of the same? I can appreciate a coach who goes to the playoffs more often than not, and thatís Edwards, but so did Marty Schottenheimer. There are a...

About Confidence
By Stephen Brown on Tuesday, December 27, 2005 at 18:29:57
Itís really not about the odds or if San Diego loses. I highly doubt Detroit will pull off the upset and beat the Pittsburgh Steelers. Itís really not about that. No, right now itís about finishing strong. Itís about pride. It's about confidence. If the Kansas City Chiefs play hard the rest will take care of itself. But what the Chiefs need to...

Your Final Answer Is?
By Stephen Brown on Tuesday, December 27, 2005 at 18:28:55
Your Final Answer Is? Has Dick Vermeil made a decision yet? Thereís a rumor that itís been made up for him. There could be as many as 11 coaches asked to leave. It all depends on Vermeil, but the Chiefs canít afford to wait. They canít settle for last. Mike Tice earned himself the ďTurkey of the WeekĒ in Minnesota after losing to the...

You know Dick Vermeil Ė he is emotional. In one article heís leaning towards not coaching, but in the next heís fired back up. You canít take what he says for face value. Vermeil seems like a nice guy, but right now heíd probably make a better Grandpa. I donít want him back. Heís almost 70! I think itís time for a change. That means someone else. Al...

Grow Up!
By Stephen Brown on Wednesday, December 21, 2005 at 18:25:58
"Iíd like to believe weíre a lot better than we were when we played them (San Diego) the first time," said Dick Vermeil at his weekly press conference. Let me refute that! Healthy? Sure, but a lot better? Take a look at their last two games. Dick Vermeil is an optimist; he sees things in a positive light. Nothing wrong with that, but...

Take an Aspirin - Call Me Next Season
By Stephen Brown on Monday, December 19, 2005 at 18:24:28
Letís see...the Chiefs must win their final two games. Okay, thatís San Diego and Cincinnati, hmmm? Jacksonville can finish no worse than 10-6! San Diego must lose their final two. Pittsburgh must lose one and their final games are against Cleveland and Detroit. Yeah right! What if Jacksonville loses two, the Chargers lose two and the Steelers lose at...

No Turning Back!
By Stephen Brown on Thursday, December 15, 2005 at 18:20:57
No Turning Back! Imagine spending your days eating, sitting and lying in the same 10-foot radius. Donít you think dogs on chains deserve better. Feminists say women deserve better. Just the other day someone said I deserved a break. Men and women serving in Iraq, they deserve better. How about a raise? Have you...

For All the Marbles
By Stephen Brown on Friday, December 2, 2005 at 19:09:38
For all the marbles! Our Alamo! This is it, no kidding; this is the sort of game that defines a team. Can the Chiefs run with the big dogs or are they stuck on the porch? Can the Chiefs hang, or are they still looking up at the monkey bars. This game will tell me two things Ė Was the off-season well spent? Or is there more work to do? After the...
