The Morning Fix

Halftime came and went, and in that time, the Chiefs’ offense began to look different. In the first half, the team executed a slow-paced, low-risk attack, if you can call it that, that mostly consisted of draws and screens. After halftime, quarterback Matt Cassel threw downfield more often. Runs went to the outside and began to break into the open field. It was different enough that, heck, maybe coach Todd Haley had done it — maybe this, in the season’s third week, was noticeable evidence that he had already wrestled offensive play-calling duties away from coordinator Bill Muir.

In 2009, Succop was one of the few consistent pieces on an otherwise inconsistent 4-12 team. He scored 12 of the Chiefs 14 points in Todd Haley’s first win as an NFL head coach against the Washington Redskins and booted an overtime winner to upset the defending Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium.

Last season, Succop was exactly what a kicker wants to be – an afterthought.

The Royals have completed yet another losing season and the Chiefs look well on their way to a dismal campaign themselves.

Business as usual in Kansas City, right?

Don’t throw in the towel just yet. Twenty-two miles west of Arrowhead and Kaufmann Stadiums, Sporting Kansas City is in contention for Major League Soccer’s Eastern Conference title.
