Here’s all that’s happening around Chiefs Kingdom this morning.
Welcome to The Morning (Afternoon) Fix.
–The Kansas City Chiefs are 5-0, and this is a good 5-0 mind you. Kansas City didn’t luck into five wins, because one, that’s not an option in the NFL. Two, this is a good team with a great defense, a great coach, great special teams and a serviceable offense. It’s my opinion that the Chiefs are for real.
Coach Andy Reid on the win, per Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:
“It was a resilient win,” coach Reid said. “I thought the guys played hard, they stuck to it. There were some ups and downs; it was two good teams playing each other.”
He also had this to say, per CBSSports.com:
“We are 5-0, and we’re not ashamed of that,” Reid said. “We also know that we’ve got a ton of room to improve and it’s important that we continue to do that.”
Jamaal Charles seemed lost for words regarding the fact that his team is 5-0:
“I am speechless right now,” Charles said. “This team is very blessed to be 5-0 right now. Nobody expected us to be 5-0.”
Dontari Poe, the Chiefs’ star defensive tackle, seemed a bit more excited, according to Ferrin’s report:
“Huge,” Poe said of the historic team victory. “It’s unexplainable right now; we’ll enjoy this to the fullest for this day and tomorrow, we’re moving on to the next. It’s huge; it’s a great feeling.
