Chiefs News And Rumors 9/25


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 (Afternoon) Fix.

–The documentary on former Chiefs’ great, Derrick Thomas, aired last night on A Football Life. Some of the current Chiefs took some time yesterday to talk about the late great linebacker, per Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:

“Being in this league and since I’ve been a part of this organization, I’ve heard so many great things about Derrick Thomas,” Chiefs Pro Bowl RB Jamaal Charles said. “He brought a lot here to this team, when he was playing for the Chiefs. He’s a Hall of Famer and I’m looking forward to seeing (tonight’s) documentary.”

Rising star linebacker Justin Houston also talked about the Chiefs’ great:

The “D.T.” influence still impacts the Chiefs linebackers, including Pro Bowl LB Justin Houston, who needed one word to describe what comes to his mind when he hears the name Derrick Thomas.

“Sacks,” Houston said. “That’s the first thing I think about, with his on-field performance. He was a great athlete, a great player. I still watch film of him and use it as motivation to try to get close to where he was.”

–Sam Mellinger of The Kansas City Star put together a good piece, taking notes after re-watching the Chiefs vs. Eagles game. Check it out.

    I had the opportunity to meet DT and sit and talk with him for a few minutes. I saw him in a bar and I walked up and said hello although I was extremely nervous and my “hello” came out a bit unintelligibly. (I’m not sure it was really even an English language hello.) I asked if I could shake his hand and I expected him to just kind of ignore me. He looked up at me and got this huge smile on his face and he told me to sit down if I wanted and he’d buy me a beer. This was a real person who really cared about the fans and this city. DT was absolutely a class act! We talked about football because he asked me what I wanted to talk about and I mean I’m talking to Derrick Thomas. He talked to me like I was a normal person and he made jokes and we laughed and just had a good time. After I finished my beer I got up and told him it was an honor to meet him. He shook my hand and thanked me for being a Chiefs fan and I walked away without even getting an autograph. Derrick Thomas was a superstar that took the time to sit and talk with some nobody fan when he could have just shrugged me off and ignored me and for that he will always be one of my favorite Chiefs. It was one of the best moments of my life. He was just a really good dude and I will be forever amazed at how well he treated me and how nice he was to me!
