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.
As the Chiefs move ever closer to their Week 16 showdown with the Indianapolis Colts, they returned to the practice field yesterday and continue that preparation today. After yesterday’s practice, reporters caught up with Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith and asked him some questions at his locker. The transcript is up at the Mothership courtesy of Cheifs Insider, Reid Ferrin.
One of the biggest questions that has arisen with the Chiefs offense going schizophrenic and putting up 101 points in the last two weeks is, “what took so long?” Smith addresses that and more.
So many things are just new for the first time. I mean, you’re in the system for the first time. There’s only so many looks you can get in practice. I mean, a lot of that stuff has to be done in games. You go through it in games, some good, some bad and you have to learn from it. So, I do think there is that foundation being laid to a certain extent and it just takes having gone through it before; you can’t simulate it all at practice.”
While the cop that arrested Chiefs wide receiver Dwayne Bowe may have been Peyton Manning in disguise, it appears that the judge who is presiding over the case involving speeding and marijuania possesion may be a Chiefs fan. According to a report at the Bowe’s case, which was originally scheduled to be heard yesterday, has been postponed until January 22, 2014. Click here for the full report and recap of the incident. Regardless, this is great news for the team, as the league can’t take any official action against Bowe until his case has been heard and runs its course through the legal system.
Finally, as the 2013 NFL regular season draws closer to a end, the race for the league MVP is becoming tighter. Although Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning has been the frontrunner throughout the season, a couple of other players are making a strong case. One of those, is Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles, fresh off his NFL record breaking five touchdown performance last Sunday against the Oakland Raiders. Dan Graziano has a great piece at ESPN breaking down the Top 10 MVP candidates.
The possible explanations for Charles’ eight-catch, 195-yard, five-touchdown performance Sunday include:
A) He disguised himself as coach Dennis Allen and gave a pregame speech in which he explained to the Raiders a new league rule making it illegal to cover or tackle a running back any time the quarterback drops back to throw.
B) He coated himself with a special margarine that turned him invisible whenever he ran a pass route.
C) Every member of the Raiders’ defense had Charles on his fantasy team.
The most plausible answer seems like A until you realize that no one knows what Dennis Allen looks like, so then it must be C. Though B would be awesome.
That’s it for today Addicts. Get your red out and get ready, tomorrow is Red Friday!
