Eric Fisher: “I’m really happy to be back”


Many people need their coffee to get up and going in the morning, and especially in the middle of the afternoon when things are starting to drag.  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 today.

Welcome to The Arrowhead Fix.

–The Chiefs head into this weekends game against the Raiders at 5-0, and a 6-0 start is on the line. Beating their rivals to get there would make the win even sweeter. According to Chiefs’ wideout/return man Dexter McCluster, Kansas City has been focused heading into this game (According to Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com):

“This year has been all about focus, execution and working together in all phases of the football game,” McCluster said. “Our offense has been doing some great things. Our defense has been tremendous and special teams, I mean, the guys have been going out there and making plays for us; we just have to remain humble, remain focused and know what got us this far, the attention to detail on-and-off the field.”

–Rookie offensive tackle Eric Fisher missed last weekend’s game with a concussion. He’s listed as probable for this weekend, which means we’ll most likely see him out there against the Raiders. Fisher’s thoughts on getting back to playing football are as follows, per Ferrin’s report:

“Yeah it’s a great feeling,” Fisher said. “It was tough last week, just watching; you have to go through those things, in this game, though. I’m really happy to be back and am looking forward to this week. It’s a huge game for us.”

Finally, Rachel Santschi of KCChiefs.com has another good report on some interesting facts leading up to this weekend’s game. Check it out here.

    I am hoping we see some of the “meanness” that got Fisher his #1 pick, that edge supposedly was waiting to explode on the NFL. Maybe he is still thinking to much but since he is the only draft pick playing all that much, one would hope one guy would be able to contribute to this year’s team.

    This was an awesome fact from the link. With the win over the Titans, Chiefs Head Coach Andy Reid has now defeated all 32 NFL teams in his career.
