Chiefs News And Rumors 9/23

Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning. Here at Arrowhead Addict, we understand that for a Chiefs fan, coffee is simply not enough.

Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom this morning.

Welcome to The Morning Fix.

-The Kansas City Chiefs are the talk of the NFL, and for all the right reasons. Kansas City is 3-0, and beat Andy Reid’s former team, The Philadelphia Eagles, on Thursday Night Football to get there. What a story so far.

One of the main stories within the Chiefs’ great start to the season has been linebacker Justin Houston, who has totaled 7.5 sacks. Houston talked about the big win in Philly, per Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:

“We wanted to win the game for coach Reid,” Houston said. “We also wanted really to win one for the fans and ourselves. We want to keep up the great motivation and keep winning the games we play. This was a nice team win.”

Chiefs’ star defensive tackle, Dontari Poe, gave his thoughts on  Houston’s performance on Thursday night, also per Ferrin

“Beast,” Poe said. “He’s a beast. I can’t say anything bad about him; sacks, forced fumbles, fumble recoveries, he played lights-out and he was a big part of Thursday’s win.”

Terez A. Paylor of the Kansas City Star wrote a cool feature on Eric Berry, and how he plays football like his favorite football player did, the late great Sean Taylor. Here’s a good quote on how great Berry has been for Kansas City, by cornerback Dunta Robinson, per Paylor’s article:

“This dude is one of the best football players I’ve ever been around in my life,” Robinson said. “I know he’s a young player, four years in, but he acts like a 12-year vet, like a guy that’s been playing for a long time. He plays with his heart and soul, and it’s a lot of fun playing with a guy like that.”

–Finally, for those mathematicians and economic junkies out there, here’s a great feature from Patrick Rishe of Forbes.com. He basically discusses, in terms far over my head, how this hot start is going to be good for Kansas City in regard to ticket revenue.
