As we head into flu and cold season, Kleenex has begun marketing what it touts as a more durable version of tissue. Speculation is swirling that it could make its NFL debut at right tackle against the Titans next week.
There is not a single team in the NFL that can beat the Chiefs this Sunday. Herm Edwards has been quick to embrace this as a sign of progress and used it to yet again underscore his philosophy that a team’s best chance for not losing comes whenever it doesn’t give up any points.
Ten days and counting until our franchise quarterback returns to the field of play. Meanwhile, Uncle Rico’s agent confirms that he and Bill Kuharich have had several “productive” conversations in recent days. As per standard policy, the Chiefs front office neither confirms nor denies that such talks are occurring. Even so, Carl Peterson has hinted on numerous occasions that if the numbers looked right, he could see Rico as a “legit” option for any NFL team in need of a “wily, veteran quarterback.”
Brian Waters has taken to blaming the backfield for not protecting the quarterback carousel behind him. Tony Gonzalez grumbles about not being allowed to break the receiving record at home. Larry Johnson questions whether he is good fit for the Chiefs future plans. Damion MacIntosh would be more comfortable playing left tackle. All stand as pretty good examples of the kind of inspired veteran leadership and chemistry-building that gets me all tingly thinking about the rest of this season and how well the development of the younger players must be going.
