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.
It’s Tuesday, which means it’s a day off for the Chiefs and the rest of the NFL, but the news keeps coming.
As the Chiefs get ready to begin another work week following a loss (man I’m getting sick of saying that) Terez Paylor at the Kansas City Star looks back one last time at the Chiefs’ third loss of the season. If you watched very carefully, you’ll notice that even though offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz drew the start on Sunday’s loss against the Denver Broncos, he was replaced on a couple of plays by Jon Asamoah.
“I had to leave because of a formation (rule). I can’t go from eligible to ineligible, so you have to come out a play and go back in.” — Geoff Schwartz

Following that loss to the Broncos, which put the Chiefs firmly in second place in the AFC West, and all but guaranteed they’ll own the 5th Seed in the playoffs, several players sounded off in the locker room. Reid Ferrin from the “Mothership” caught those quotes and put them together for us. This, from Eric Berry:
“It hurts, but at the same time, it’s something we can build off of,” Berry said. “We have a lot of guys that play hard and that’s something real special. We fought them, down to the wire. We made some mistakes, but we’ll get those corrected. Each week, we’re learning, we’re learning, we learning, as a team and how to be a good team and this game was very, very helpful.”
Finally, the World Record for loudest outdoor stadium no longer resides in Kansas City. Last night, the fans at CenturyLink Field in Seattle retook the record from Chiefs fans who earned it with a decible level of 137.5 against the Oakland Raiders on October 13th. The Kansas City Star did a short write up on it here.
That’s it for Chiefs news for today, Addicts. It’s time to put the Bronocs loss in the rear view mirrior and look forward to getting back on track against the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon.
