Podcast: Chiefs still must improve, Eric Berry for CPOY, and Dee Ford’s growth


On this episode of the Roughing the Kicker podcast on Arrowhead Addict, Joshua Brisco discusses the possibility of Adrian Peterson beating Eric Berry for comeback player of the year, recaps the Chiefs’ victory over the Chargers, previews the Chiefs-Ravens game, talks about the news involving Justin Houston’s knee, looks at Jah Reid’s new contract, Dee Ford’s big game,  and much more.

The NFL is a results-based business, so all victories are good victories. But if the Chiefs repeat last week’s offensive performance in a playoff game, the one-and-done showings will continue. And absurdly enough, that playoff game could still be played in Arrowhead if the Denver Broncos drop two of their last three games and the Chiefs win out.

A highlight from Sunday’s game against the Chargers was Dee Ford – but how excited should we be? Jah Reid had a rough game but got a contract extension on Thursday. Justin Houston didn’t play but still appears to be on track to return for the playoffs, though probably not on Sunday. But the Baltimore Ravens will be starting Matt Schaub or Jimmy Clausen, so I’m not terribly concerned.

Plus, Adrian Peterson (much to my surprise) is being talked about as a top comeback player of the year candidate, right along with Carson Palmer and Eric Berry. For more on that subject, listen to the first segment of today’s show. For more of everything else, you have the rest of this edition of the Roughing the Kicker podcast.
