Coffee with the Chiefs – K.C. must make statement


Good morning, Addicts! It’s GAMEDAYYYYYYYY. And it is not just any gameday. No, it is the Kansas City Chiefs opening up the slate at Arrowhead Stadium with a Thursday Night Football matchup against the Denver Broncos for first-place in the AFC West. If that sentence is not enough to pump you up through the roof, I don’t know what is. This has the chance to be one of the games we all look back on as a turning point. Let’s hope it turns out that way.

Here is the news you need to know:

Chiefs need to make statement against BroncosJeffri Chadiha of

"The Broncos, winners of four straight AFC West championships, came into this season looking as vulnerable as they’ve ever been since Manning’s arrival. He’s playing with a rebuilt offensive line. He’s trying to acclimate himself to a new offense. He’s also facing heavy scrutiny about his arm strength and his ability to fit into the more run-heavy schemes of new head coach Gary Kubiak."

"On Wednesday, the Chiefs announced that “Hey, Kansas City!” by David George and A Crooked Mile has won a vote to replace “Rock ‘N’ Roll Part Two” as the official song following Chiefs touchdowns at Arrowhead Stadium."

Chiefs can survive without touchdowns to receivers Adam Teicher of ESPN

"If the Chiefs don’t get any or many touchdown catches from Maclin, Albert Wilson or any of their other wide receivers, it doesn’t kill their chances of beating the Denver Broncos on Thursday night at Arrowhead Stadium, winning the AFC West or advancing in the playoffs."

"Still, only three quarterbacks since 1950 — Otto Graham against the Cardinals, John Elway versus the Patriots, and Roger Staubach against the Giants — have managed better winning percentages against another team, according to STATS. All three of them are Hall of Famers."
