The Kansas City Chiefs are 7-0 and are just a few short days away from playing for 8-0.
If they get to that mark, the Chiefs will have gone through half of the NFL season undefeated. From 2-14 to 8-0? No matter how you look at it, that’s quite a terrific turnaround.
As is the case with most sports though, there will be a team on the other sideline trying to stop Kansas City from achieving its goal, the Cleveland Browns.
We’re pretty knowledgable over here at Arrowhead Addict, but even we can’t profess to know everything about every team in the NFL. Thankfully, that’s why we have the great Fansided network that features sites for every team in the NFL.
To get more of an inside scoop on the Browns, I talked to Dawg Pound Daily staff writer Michael Angelo and asked him some questions. In return, he asked me a few.
We’ll post his answers a little bit later, but in the meantime, here are his questions, and my take on the Chiefs:
MA: Did you ever think the Chiefs would get things turned around so quickly after last year’s 2-14 season? With that being said, it gives all of us in Cleveland some hope for next year…maybe. Hah
MA: How much do you attribute Alex Smith’s play to the success the Chiefs have had thus far? If you take a look at his stats, he is not having a very good year by any stretch, but the Chiefs keep winning. What are your thoughts on this?
MA: What are your thoughts on Andy Reid on his job as head coach as we approach the halfway point of his first season with the Chiefs?
AK: Simply put, right now, I think he’d be the coach of the year in the NFL.
MA: Lastly, what are your expectations this Sunday when the Browns travel to Arrowhead? Any final thoughts you would like to leave with us?
AK: One of the coaches I coach high school football with used to play in the NFL, and he always talks about how despite not always being good, you knew you were in for a fight when you played the Browns.
I expect nothing less this Sunday. The Browns are a proud organization and they will give the Chiefs their all. At the end of the day I think Cleveland’s quarterback situation is far too shaky though, and that won’t fly against this Chiefs’ defense.
Kansas City gets a hard-fought win.
