Fire Chiefs Of The Week

Arrowhead Addict is presenting a new weekly award called the Fire Chief Of The Week. Each week, hopefully, a Chiefs player distinguishes themselves by performing in an inspirational way — for either one play or during parts of the game. AA Fire Chief of The Week (AAFC) is not a most valuable player award, but could at times be the same player.

First and foremost, the AAFC is meant to be the most inspirational performer — that player who others feed off of — even if it was for one critical set of plays or downs.

This week’s Fire Chiefs Award goes to:

Jamaal Charles Justin Houston and Ryan Succop

Yes, Jamaal Charles was most definitely the MVP of this contest and played inspired football but, Justin Houston was also the Fire Chief of the game because without the defense turning things around in the second half, this victory never would have happened. Also, without Ryan Succop’s six consecutive field goals, this game would not have been won either.

Charles — 233 yards on 33 carries – 7.1 yards per carry. Charles has 323 rushing yards this season.
Houston — three sacks in this game. Houston has 9.5 sacks in his last eight games.
Succop — six straight field goals without a miss, a team record. Field goals of: 25, 45, 34, 38, 43, and 31.

    Love it. Very entertaining game till the end. All three of them deserving. Admittedly I am not too confident in succups kicking. Maybe he’ll change my mind after all.

      Ditto on Succop. While I was worried about his kicks after the half it just felt like we were going to get it down – and they did! What a great win! Plus we are one game better than we were at this point last year.

  • Tarkus

    Those three guys have a decent chance of getting offensive, defensive and special teams players of the week this week. Would be awesome if the Chiefs swept the awards.

  • TheBillTheCat

    Their performance also serves to increase their confidence! Confidence in Justin’s development as a legitimate pass rush threat, in Ryan’s ability to hit his kicks with consistency, and, as Jamaal noted in the star, confidence in the recovery of his body and his return to form as our most dangerous scoring weapon! Cheers for your performance today!

    Does anyone else think Ryan Succop looks like Matt Cassel’s goofy little brother?

  • Danny W

    Leave it Succoup to come back consistent.

    with Justin i think his performance in this game will most certainly improve hali’s performance, Charles can you say WOW!!! and Succop(sp?) is it sad when he was kicking the game winner i had flashbacks from last season to the Faider game. But Kudos to them all!!!

    Also i wanna say that i wish we would go back to the Livefyre or whatever its was called, the last commenting system. This season live feed has been frustrating and not only that since we’ve switched over. I would like to see a move back to that commenting system.

      When the board is busy the screen jumps all over the place trying to update itself making it hard to type a comment.

    The Saints coaching staff deserves a shout out as well that 5 yard double time out penalty was absolutely critical to our win. Anyone who is down on Haley or Herm from the past just needs to look at Spagnolie and thank God we didn’t end up with him. St’Louis deserves to get Fisher after that guy.
