Coffee with the Chiefs – Andy Reid happy for Royals


Good morning, Addicts! The Kansas City Chiefs continue their week off, but there is still plenty of news to catch up on. Of course, most of you can use this week to kick back, relax and bask in the glory of the Kansas City Royals, who wrapped up the World Series on Sunday night.

It’s always cool to see the Royals playing well, especially with how close the Royals and Chiefs have gotten over the last few years. The players and coaches seem to genuinely like and support each other. It’s a great thing, and hopefully some of the Royals’ grit and toughness wears off on the Chiefs.

Here’s the news you need to know:

Head coach Andy Reid is very happy for the RoyalsAdam Teicher of ESPN

"Kansas City’s parade honoring the Royals is scheduled for Tuesday. Some of the Chiefs, with a week off because of the bye, will undoubtedly attend. A few Chiefs are good friends with Royals players. Punter Dustin Colquitt, for instance, attended college at Tennessee with pitcher Luke Hochevar and they remain close friends."

Chiefs still holding onto playoff hopes after a horrid startDave Skretta of the Associated Press

"The only team since 1933 to start 1-5 and make the playoffs were the 1970s Bengals, which means the odds of accomplishing that feat are about 0.5 percent, STATS said. But of the 280 teams that have started 3-5 over the same time frame, 15 of them have rallied to make the playoffs."

Jeff Allen has been exactly what the Chiefs needJoel Thorman of Arrowhead Pride

"If you had asked me before the season whose contract I would extend – Allen and Stephenson are both in the final year of their deals – I would have said Stephenson. He generally played well when he was in in 2013 and played a more premium position in tackle."
