Big game tomorrow for the Kansas City Chiefs.  Huge game.  Playoffs within their grasp, Chargers closing in and gaining momentum, plus an interstate rivalry with the Governor’s Cup at stake!  This is what a December NFL game should feel like.  We have waited patiently as fans, we have gone through the lowest of lows, taken it on the chin from fans of every other team (besides the Lions), and stepped out of the cellar to feel the brisk air of a winter’s morn.  We are ready.

Patrick stated this week in one of his many posts that the Kansas City Chiefs are far from finished, while  Lyle reflected on the season’s beginning and asked the Addicts where the bar was set for this team and if it had changed as the year progressed.  Double D looked at the DVOA rankings for the Chiefs for the season, and flat out said that Todd Haley was not achieving his goal of getting better every day.  Not only that, but that the Chiefs are clearly declining, and that Haley has peaked and should be replaced as head coach.  Randy looked to the future, and looked into the magic 8 ball to receive some predictions for this week, and the rest of the season.  Results?  Well read the article and you will find out!

Our staff predictions will be up tomorrow, but as a prelim to that I want to ask the Addicts how you think our team stacks up against the Rams, specifically how you think the defense will handle the rookie QB Sam Bradford.  I live in Oklahoma, and watched him tear people apart for years.  To be quite honest, the guy has the talent to be one of the best in the league.

Secondly, with Christmas fast approaching, what was the best Chiefs related gift you ever received?  Mine was when I was a kid and all me and my brother wanted was a Steve Bono jersey.  We both got one, and it was awesome.  I found mine in the attic the other day and it brought me back to simpler times.

I will be back on Wednesday with my regularly scheduled post, but I want to throw out a preemptive Merry Christmas to everyone out there in the Chiefs Nation.  If you do not celebrate Christmas, I hope you had a great Hanukkah, have a great Kwanzaa, or if you don’t celebrate any holiday I hope you can be with loved ones and appreciate all of the great things in this world that we have before us.  Have a great night everybody! Go Chiefs!
