We’ll get to your Kansas City Chiefs news in just a minute, but first I wanted to take a moment to remind you all that today is Veterans Day.
Originally Armistice Day, Veterans Day was first proclaimed a holiday in 1919 by President Woodrow Wilson.
“To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations.”
So take a moment today to remember the men and women who defend our freedoms.
Arenas takes a step back on injury frontCB Javier Arenas (ankle) went from full participation in practice on Wednesday to only a limited role on Thursday. Arenas missed last Sunday’s game against Miami with the injury that seemed to grow worse with the more work he did in trying to practice.
“You got a quarterback running the option,” Haley said, “and that makes it a triple threat.”Fox said Monday that Denver is trying to put Tebow into a position where he can succeed.
“We’re asking a lot, not just of Tim, but our entire offense — the coaching staff, everybody involved,” Fox said. “We’ve kind of grown it as we’ve grown with Tim. There is no question that we are looking for balance in the run and the pass. We’re probably leaning a little bit more on the run right now. We have to improve in the pass game because in this league, you have to be two-dimensional, not one-dimensional, and it’s something that I’m sure he’ll grow, we’ll grow, in time.”
Broncos (+3) at Chiefs: Tim Tebow statistically is better on the road, and Denver has modified its offense to emphasize his running skills. Even so, Kansas City has owned its AFC West rival in Kansas City lately (6 of 8) and is much better than it showed last week against the Dolphins. CHIEFS
“You can’t go in there thinking that he can’t throw,” said Arenas. “No way. You go in like that and you’ll get beat, because he can throw and he can win.”
Much ado has been made about Denver’s zone-read option offense that helped torch Oakland for nearly 300 rushing yards last Sunday, but Arenas has seen Tebow turn in huge performances through the air as well.
