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 been quite awhile since there has been a “Victory Monday” edition of the The Fix, Addicts. As a matter of fact, it’s been five weeks. Not since the Chiefs defeated the Buffalo Bills has there been something to celebrate on Monday morning following a Chiefs game. That changed yesterday as the Chiefs completely dismantled the Washington Redskins 45-10 on the snowy FedEx Field in Landover, Maryland.
The ironic thing about all of this is, Chiefs fans know exactly how the Redskins faithful feel. It was less than a year ago that we were all suffering through the miserable season that was the 2012 Chiefs. Sam Mellinger at the Kansas City Star has a great piece up about just that.
More recently, the Chiefs lived this sad life last season. Maybe it was karma that they got to snap a three-game losing streak against, basically, the dysfunctional, 2012 version of themselves. Washington, once a surprise division winner, is now a directionless team defined by behind-the-scenes power struggles. Doesn’t that sound familiar?
Over at the “Mothership” Chiefs Insider Reid Ferrin posted a great piece detailing the Chiefs rout over the Redskins yesterday. He talked to several players about the cold weather and snow from yesterday’s game. This was what Cheifs linebacker Tamba Hali, who finished the game with two sacks, had to say about it:
“Very fun,” Hali said. “I come from a Big ten era, so, it snows, when it gets cold; it’s enjoyable. I love it. We were definitely focused. We had to do what we got done and that’s what matters. You can’t script it. For us to get a win, that’s all that matters.”
And finally, ESPN writer Adam Teicher posted a piece proclaiming the Chiefs are finally ready for the playoffs. The piece contains, among other things, this quote from Andy Reid equating the time between losing games to dog years.
“It’s tough to lose three consecutive games in the National Football League,” coach Andy Reid said. “It seems like a year. Those are dog years, each week that you have a loss in the NFL.”
While much of the national media is focusing on the implosion of the Redskins instead of the complete three-phase domination by the Chiefs, there is no denying that the team put together the most complete victory of any team in the league this season.
With three games to go, they’ll need to continue to find that drive.
