Chiefs Whippin’ Up A “Big Apple” Mud Pie Sundae

A Big Apple Mud Pie Sundae logo

Oh, it’s going to be one big gooey mess but, it’s going to taste oh so sweet.

Sometimes you can taste it before it’s in your mouth. My mother used to cook these incredible meals on Sunday afternoons and the smell would invade every cavity of our two story home. I could literally taste the meal before I even sat down at the dinner table.

This Sunday afternoon at Arrowhead, Chiefs fans will be smelling the meal and tasting the victory… before they even enter the stadium. And what I’m talking about doesn’t have a thing to do with tailgating.

Overconfidence? Sure, and why not. In fact, the Chiefs have the recipe and here it is:

  • The Chiefs defense is tied for 7th in the league with 4 INTs while the Giants offense is first at throwing it away with 9.

  • The Chiefs have the 11th ranked rushing offense and the Giants have the 27th ranked defense against the run.

  • The Chiefs are 1st in the league in the turnover/takeaway ratio while the Giants are dead last 32nd.

And this game is not just about the stats either. That wondrous force of life called momentum has taken over in fountain-town and I wouldn’t be betting against the men in red and gold, for all the gold in Red China. While the Chiefs are ramping up, the Giants appear to be slowing and growing desperate.

So, are the Chiefs even favored in this game by the “writers in the know?”

If you’re keeping a tally that’s 41 out of 46 sports writers who are predicting the Chiefs not only win but, in some cases cover the spread and in the case of Don Banks, thinks it will be a route. I couldn’t agree more.

Don’t get me wrong, I understand the Chiefs could lose on Sunday. But there is very little evidence in the Giants portfolio pointing to a need for that conviction.

NFL.com pointed out this week that “good coaching” (be sure to watch the video at the bottom of the page too, of the Chiefs locker room after the Eagles game yelling, “We’ve still got work to do.” Goosebumps) has been the difference in Kansas City this year. Arrowhead Pride pointed out this week that Andy Reid is 13-1 when given extra time to prepare for a game like he’s getting for this one, come Sunday against the New York Giants.

In 1999 and 2000, Reid’s Eagles were swept by the New York Giants. Since then Reid’s Eagles are 15-9 and there’s only two seasons in that span when the Eagles were swept by the Giants while Reid’s Eagles swept the Giants 5 times during that same time period. It appears that Reid knows how to beat the Giants, at a .625 clip since 2001.

    Awesome read Laddie! There is another element to winning that wasn’t talked about and that is exhaustion from Eli. That guy is not going to get any sleep tonight. Imagine waking up in a cold sweat because you woke up right before Poe and Houston knocked your head off! Yep it’s going to be a long restless night for Mr Manning

    • ladner morse

      Are you ever surprised how much the two Manning brothers…… are not alike?

      • Chris Tarrants

        Yeah except for one thing they both have in common is they get rattled when you punch them in the mouth so here’s to a solid rush and big pressure. Oh and only one has that huge stupid looking forehead and that’s the big brother who has less rings than little brother :)

  • Chris Tarrants

    Also thanks for making me hungry for something sweet! Looks like I’m going to Tim Hortons and I blame you lol

    • ladner morse

      There are times in one’s life when it seems perfectly fitting to … take all the blame. BON APPETIT!

      • Chris Tarrants

        All they had was doughnuts! My wife gave me a very quizzical look when I walked in the door with doughnuts a 4 in the afternoon lol I told her don’t blame me blame my love for football and left it at that! She just walked away even more confused

  • RepOurChiefs

    Great article and the Gmen site agrees with the assessment. The air is leaving the balloon sorta speak. Even PO (donkeys) site agrees though they wished they couldnt realistically. I see this getting messy and im way excited for def play. GoChiefsKingdom! Oh..is that locker room vid on utube? I dont see it here and ive been wanting to get pumped off it! I NEED TO SEEEEE IIIIT! The comradeship!

    • ladner morse

      ROC, I followed the link again and the video is still there… it’s actually about half way down the page and is called, “Chiefs celebrate after win” which I did not find a copy of at YouTube. Give it another try. It’s a great video.

      • RepOurChiefs

        Ok..thx Laddie

        • RepOurChiefs

          I just saw it laddie. Dont know why nfl.com was not showing me the link on my phone when I clearly cld see the others.NEway I saw it on KcChiefs.com.very inspiring. ..no way this team is losing come Sunday. GoChiefs!

          • ladner morse

            I know… I know.. .that’s exactly what I came away feeling.
            Wish I wasn’t feeling sick this weekend!

          • RepOurChiefs

            Get well soon although I think you will be feeling a little better by 4pm tomorrow. Lol

          • ladner morse

            Thanks ROC…… .stomach thang… bad sushi!

  • RepOurChiefs

    Oh..not to mention the players, coaching divide that looks like could get worse once our Red&Gold drop the hammer.

  • micah stephenson

    Yea Chiefs are gon totally kick they ass!!!

    • ladner morse

      Mostly because of Alex Smith, right Micah?

      • Jim Harper

        ROFL! Now that was priceless Laddie.

      • micah stephenson

        Bah haaaa haaa haaaaa. Lol………uh no. I hope they run the ball more QTs 1-3 tomorrow.

        • ladner morse

          Running the ball — I believe that is big part of the plan tomorrow for the Chiefs and consequently… I think that will open up the passing game more than ever and A.S. may end up looking super. That was usually the case in SF when Gore had lots of success.

  • Jim Harper

    Great job Laddie! I used to hate seeing the Giants coming to town. The last time they were here they handed us our heads. You know the old saying I’d rather be lucky than good? Well that fits Eli to a T. Both of his Super Bowl wins were the result of blind luck. I do believe that his luck has finally run out. These guys are toast for all the reasons you so aptly point out. I could be wrong ( I know that seems unlikely), but I don’t think a team ever started out 0-4 ever got into the playoffs. One thing I do know for certain is that so far this season has really been FUCKIN FUN! Go Chiefs!

    • ladner morse

      I wish this commenting system would allow me to give you multiple votes up….. you be getting a ton from me right now……
      Has been fun … right?!

  • Joe Myers

    A lot of our success (for the offense) have been field position !!!! We are going to the playoffs for sure and I think we can get to the afc champ game !!!!

  • Bosco Cletus

    My prediction……if Erin Andrews wears any stich of red today at Arrowhead, its a Chiefs blowout!! Ok, I just wanted to get a bit going about how hot she is. lol

    • Chris Tarrants

      She lost her sex appeal with her hotel video, when nobody is looking she is a very conceded chick.

    • ladner morse

      When Arrowhead Addict publishes a post such as this one featuring digestive juices… we prefer not to mix other “juices” into the discussion.

      But oh yea… man she’s hot!

      • Bosco Cletus

        Must have had a red lacy underthingy somewhere. lol
