Talking Chiefs Football with CBS Sports Senior NFL Columnist Pete Prisco

Earlier this year during the Chiefs’ magical 9-0 run Pete Prisco, who is the senior NFL columnist for CBS Sports, tweeted out that the team was the “worst 9-0 team” he’d ever seen. This sent a shockwave around Chiefs Kingdom, which resulted in a deluge of tweets, blogs and whatever medium Addicts could find to decry Prisco’s opinion and call him every name in the book. Now that the heightened expectations of an undefeated team are gone, and the Chiefs have dropped three straight to division opponents, I thought it would be a great time to check in with Mr. Prisco and get his take on where the Chiefs stand now.

Despite what you may think about the man’s opinions regarding football in general — or the Chiefs in particular — Pete Prisco is a level headed guy who was gracious enough to give me 15 minutes of his time on the phone to talk about my favorite subject, the Kansas City Chiefs.

Take a listen to the interview and find out what Pete thinks about the Chiefs now. He said they were the worst 9-0 team he’d ever seen. Are they the worst 9-3 team? Where did Pete have this team going at the beginning of the season? Did he predict they would make the playoffs? Can they win a playoff game? Will they even make the playoffs?

Pete and I talked about all this and more during our chat.  Listen to the interview and let us know what you think. Then, make sure you tune into AA Radio this Thursday, as the panel of Addicts and I will be discussing this interview and giving our reactions to Prisco’s comments, his take on the Chiefs as well as whether or not his Superbowl predictions will come to pass.

I’d like to thank Mr. Prisco for his time and willingness to talk to a Chiefs fan!

    I didn’t like him putting all Chiefs in the same box just because of a few overzealous fans. Reid and company can only get so many new players in one year. We will only get better. Denver on the other hand only this year maybe next year left. So I’d rather be a Chiefs fan than a Bronco fan.

    Ah yes, we should be grateful the great Pete Prisco is giving the Chiefs enough attention to dog them. When is this guy going to a headbutt a sword? I wouldn’t miss it for the world

    Prisco is a bum, sorry. No credibility. Look at his preseason picks for the past 3 years. Nothing but a hater

    I haven’t followed the Prisco controversy but I figured it was a case of my fellow fans being over sensitive. Sorry for that. This guy is a pompous ass. How’s his Atlanta winning the NFC pick doing? This guy is full of himself.
    BTW:
    Can we lose the painful red yellow song please!

    • Jason Seibel

      Do you have a suggestion for a new AA Radio theme song?

        Maybe a baby crying or finger nails on a chalkboard. Just kidding. I’m pretty sure a 52 yr old guy isn’t the demographic you’re keying in on.

    9-7 sure pal. Haters Gonna Hate

    Great get Jason! Even if people don’t agree with him, he’s still a national voice and I’m glad I got to hear him and explain his doubts a little. I still think he’s trying to rile up fans a little for attention. While many KC fans are a little to positive, I think Prisco goes too far the other way. The truth is probably somewhere in between.

    Sitting over here with the scooby-doo confused dog look. (aruuuugh) Appreciate that interview Jason.
