Coffee with the Chiefs – Fan offended by Quan


Good morning, Addicts! It’s HUMP DAYYYYYYYY. The Kansas City Chiefs are back in action, getting in their first of three practices today before taking on the Oakland Raiders come Sunday afternoon at Coliseum. It will be interesting to see who practices and who does not for the Chiefs, after they sustained three injuries to starting offensive linemen on Sunday along with a sprained MCL for Justin Houston.

Travis Kelce apologizes to fan offended by The Quan dancePete Grathoff of the Kansas City Star

"OK, it appears his “complaint” was more sarcasm than anything else, perhaps making fun of the mother who wrote a letter to Panthers quarterback Cam Newton last month. She complained about Newton’s “chest puffs” and “pelvic thrusts.” It was all pretty ridiculous and you can read it here and see Newton’s response here."

Playoff projections have Chiefs sitting in great positionAdam Teicher of ESPN

"The Chiefs have a 62.8 percent chance to beat the Raiders on Sunday in Oakland. The percentage chances of a Chiefs victory in their other four games: 80.8 vs. San Diego on Dec. 13, 59.1 at Baltimore on Dec. 20, 83.6 vs. Cleveland on Dec. 27 and 77.7 vs. Oakland on Jan. 3."

Tamba Hali beat odds to become great pass-rusherAdam Teicher of ESPN

"One thing Hali had to learn was how to play through injuries. He initially adopted the natural approach of wanting to sit out until all the aches and pains were gone. Edwards, among others, eventually helped prod Hali to take the opposite approach."

Kansas City is tough and peaking at just the right timeSeth Keysor of Arrowhead Pride

"In short, I didn’t think the Chiefs could sustain any offense against a tough Bills defense, and the Chiefs defense was reeling. I sat back and started thinking about how I would write articles about an ugly loss after we all JUST started to hope again. We’ve talked a lot about how this Chiefs team wins, and it’s widely accepted that going down multiple scores early was always going to be a recipe for disaster with this particular team."
