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 Arrowhead Fix.
–Let’s talk about special teams, and specifically, kickers. In many NFL cities special teams is an overlooked part of the game, but not in Kansas City. Dave Toub has the Chiefs’ special teams firing on all cylinders and kicker Ryan Succop is a huge part of that. In fact, I considered him to be the Chiefs most important player against Tennessee last weekend.
Succop talked about last Sunday’s win, per Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com:
"“It was awesome,” Succop said of Sunday’s win. “I’m really proud of Dustin (Colquitt) and Thomas (Gafford). I was really pumped that Dustin was able to come out and hold for me. People don’t realize how big of a deal that is, and he toughed it out. Obviously, he was a little banged up and he came out and held and did a great job and fortunately we were able to go out there and make some big kicks today and go out there and put the game away there in the end and praise God.”"
–There is a group of Kansas City fans who are aiming to have Arrowhead Stadium set the Guinness World Record of 136.6 decibels in regard to stadium noise this Sunday against the Raiders. Rachel Santschi of KCChiefs.com has more in a feature on the movement.
–There has been a lot of talk about Tony Gonzalez possibly coming back to the Chiefs via a trade. After all, things are looking bleak in Atlanta and the Chiefs have had injury problems at tight end. Brandon Flowers thoughts on that are as follows, via Terez A. Paylor of The Kansas City Star.
"“That would be all the way up to Tony Gonzalez if he wants to come back to Kansas City,” said Flowers, who was Gonzalez’s teammate in 2008. “I’d love to have him back here. That’s one of the guys, he was definitely a pro. He definitely taught me how to be a pro in this locker room. He’s just a great guy to have on your team. You can ask anybody that ever played with him. So I would welcome him back with open arms.”"
