Let there be hot pants. Please. Recent reports about the NFL cutting back on camera shots of scantily clad cheerleaders is balderdash. I’ll even go so far as to use the one cuss word my own mother would frequent… it’s crap! This is football. Let all hang out. Well, maybe not all, but why do the cheerleaders need censoring anyway? The individual teams put them out there! Why not show them in whatever attire the team already cleared for them to wear. It’s not like they have body parts hanging out like Janet Jackson. Besides… they usually show them right before commercials and they are my que to go get a cold drink from the frig. I say let’s censor the censorship cuz ur messin up my dietary habits.

Playing rookies: it’s like mixing “OL” and water. You’d think that starting the first pick in the draft would be a safe bet but, some rookies learning curve is steeper than others. That appears to be the case with Chiefs rook LT Eric Fisher. ProFootball Focus (PFF) has come out this week and questioned whether or not rookie Eric Fisher should be on the field right now. They graded Fisher at -4.7 against the Raiders. I concur that Fish should sit and on Wednesday in a piece called, “The 2013 K.C Chiefs: A Great Enigma” I suggested a similar fix for the Chiefs current OL woes,

RT Eric Fisher is flat out stinking up the place…. The immediate fix for the offensive line is to start Geoff Schwartz at LG and start Donald Stephenson at RT. Stephenson was as good as Albert has been this year, as a replacement at LT last year. Schwartz has already shown me he is better than Allen….

It looks like the game is too big for Fisher and he will need an off season of weight training and help with technique as he often “looks” overmatched physically and out of position.

    im originally from Washington state. .I looove the city of Seattle. Unfortunately I never got to visit century link field myself but I have lots of friends who have. The experiences they described having there with the “12″ man were all so awesome but I couldn’t truly relate until now having attended my first game at Arrowhead. . all I can say is AMAZING!! Great article!

    • ladner morse

      Wow… we’re honored to have you post about your experience too. Thanks for sharing!

  • Lyle Graversen

    Great read Laddie, and I’m going to say probably the greatest title of an AA article in the history of the sight.

    • Andrew Kulha

      Agreed.

      • ladner morse

        Thanks L & A….. my original title was 200 words longs but I had to cut it down because I knew Andrew would try to get me to turn it into a whole post.

        :)

    As always Laddie, great read. Have very fond memories of Hasty and Carter as well but my personal favorite tandem has to be Albert Lewis and Kevin Ross. Mad love for the swagger they brought every Sunday. As far as defensive improvement goes the only soft spots that I see would be right corner back and Left inside linebacker. Sean Smith is playing lights out this year but if he were to go down we’re left with Dunta ( smart but getting a bit long in the tooth. Also some speed issues which became evident during the Giants game. ) and Ron Parker, who I’m pretty high on right now but hasn’t played enough snaps to see if he will be consistent. As far as the LILB spot I don’t have any grades on Akeem Jordan. Your input here would be quite awesome. It’s not that I don’t think he’s a good player, It’s almost as if he’s invisible during games. Rarely hear his name called. It’s nice that he’s not hurting us but would like to see more production out of that position. Not getting to see Nico play ( what’s going on with him by the way? ) leaves me a little uneasy as well were something to happen to Jordan. As great as our line backing corp is, I believe we are one line backer away from having an elite line backing group. I can’t even start to predict anything for next year as I am still trying to wrap my mind around this 2013 Chiefs squad. Am just enjoying the moment.

      Oh yeah, and God bless the cheerleaders>>>>>>>

      • ladner morse

        Yes… and they don’t get enough credit do they. Since we now hold the loudest open air stadium crowd noise Guinness World record — then I suppose it’s appropriate to say — the Chiefs also have the best “Cheer” Leaders in the world!

        Just seems fair to me. Just sayin’.

        • jacati

          Hey Ladner, what’s the word on Nico Johnson? I can’t find anything about him. Do you know if he’s injured or something?

          • ladner morse

            No, I haven’t heard anything about Nico.

      Read an article earlier this week on Chiefs unheralded players where the author states that, according to PFF, Akeem Jordan grades out as the fourth best (3-4) ILB in the league, right behind DJ who’s at three. On the one hand it was a Bleacher Report article, and their analysis leaves much to be desired. On the other hand, reporting PFF’s analysis isn’t really doing your own analysis, so it’s probably a credible claim. But if taken as true, it’s pretty impressive for a guy who only ever played in a 4-3 scheme to come in and do that well that quick at a brand new position.

      I guess that, on top of doing the standard thumper duties at a high level, he’s grading out very well in coverage. So basically what we had but with much better coverage skills, which is what I know a lot of people on here wanted to see.

      *The author didn’t say who the first best and second best were right now. I’d imagine NaVorro Bowman, and Brian Cushing (Cushing instead of Patrick Willis due to Willis missing some time due to injury).

        Wow. Sweeeet. I wouldn’t have guessed. Thanks for the info.
