C'mon Brodie! (Source:

We sure have had a rollercoaster of a week in the Chief’s Nation.  First going up with the win over Denver, up more with San Deigos’s loss, then down down down with our defining game of the season being even more in question because Matt Cassel had a bum appendix.  It now looks very likely that Brodie “Kleenex” Croyle will be calling the shots Sunday against the Chargers, and although he is 0-9 as a starter in the NFL, the rest of the team has improved enough to give us hope, which says a lot about how this year has played out.

Here at AA Big Matt started us out on the rollercoaster upswing by rejoicing in disbelief that the Chargers lost, followed by Lyle’s astute breakdown of the Chiefs organization, likening their process to that of building a skyscraper.  I reflected back on the beginning of the Pioli/Haley era and decided that I used to be a hater, and Merlin claimed that this season we positioned ourselves to play with house money (also that we should enjoy it while it lasts).  After the bad news it was  Adam that helped us as we fell back to earth from the Matt Cassel high of the last two months.  But, after all, it’s not the going up part on a roller coaster that’s exciting, it’s the coming down part.  We just need to hope the track stays together…

So what do you want to talk about Addicts?  The night is yours, but I have a couple of things that have rolled around in my scatterbrain lately.  First is, who is going to win the game tomorrow?  You will see my pick along with the staff’s in the morning, but I want to know what you think.  Second, however far-fetched this may seem to ask, do you think there is anything Croyle could do if he plays that could cost Cassel his job or put it in question?  I mean, if he goes out there and does look like Tom Brady, how fast do you think a QB controversy could start?  Like I said, far-fetched, but a curiosity of mine nonetheless.  Have a great night!
