ESPN Columnist Jeffri Chadiha Thinks Chiefs Are Championship-Caliber


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 Fix.

–The past few days around Chiefs Kingdom have been fun ones to say the least. The Chiefs are 7-0 and everybody seems to be in a celebratory mood. From Andy Reid dancing, to Kansas City being on top of ESPN’s power rankings, things are good.

Speaking of Reid, he summed up week seven in his Monday press conference, via Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:

 I will always tell you that I think every win is a good win. This was against a good football team, a very talented football team, well coached. They gave us a run right to the end there. I was impressed with our guys. Through the highs and the lows of the game, we were able to maintain the positive attitude that they did throughout the game. Nobody ever hung their head, during the game or didn’t rise up to the challenge. I think we did a good job. I appreciate the support of the fans; they were all in and that was very impressive again.

When asked about whether or not this season has exceeded Reid’s expectations, the Chiefs head coach had this to say:

“I don’t know if you ever—you don’t think about that. You’re kind of in this dryer going around and around and around. You don’t think about that. The players are thinking about getting their lift in in the next couple of days, getting their bodies right, getting some rest and doing whatever things they’re doing on their off days, appearance-wise and that, and taking care of that. Then you’re on to the next day. You’re not thinking about the record and down the road. You’re kind of in the moment and you get yourself right. I think it’s the same way as a coach. I’ve never been one that could sit there and go, ‘We’re going to win this game, we’re going to lose this game and we’re going to win (this game).’ I can’t do that. Then, every game you prepare yourself, do the best you possibly can do to win every game; that’s how you prepare. Any less, you can’t do that in this business.”

–Finally, read this glowing piece from Jeffri Chadiha of ESPN.com. He compares the Chiefs to the 2000 Ravens, 2001 Pats and 2002 Buccaneers. All of those teams won the Super Bowl.

    Good article Andrew. I like Andy’s philosophy-1game at a time. If the Chiefs stay focused at the game at hand they can do very well. I LOVE KC CHIEFS

    Jeffri Chahida has been writing about the Chiefs for the last couple weeks and every article I read of his gets me goin even more! At least one of the ESPN writers seems to know that ugly football isn’t necessarily bad football.
