Pioli must find some humility

Almost three years into Scott Pioli's reign as general manager of the Kansas City Chiefs, not much has changed — and the GM himself is mostly to blame.

If the Chiefs want to win, they'll claim Orton

There isn't a choice here. It's a no-brainer. The Chiefs must make a statement to their fanbase and put a claim on recently-waived quarterback Kyle Orton.

Losing Cassel hurts the Chiefs, but not in the way you may think

Matt Cassel and Todd Haley may not realize this now, but the news of the Chiefs starting-quarterback's right-hand injury being more serious than previously thought is the best thing to happen to each of them since their arrival in Kansas City.

Trust me. In the spirit of Tim Tebow, both should be counting their blessings. Their respective positions as the buffoons charged with the extension of football-mediocrity in Kansas City may have just been saved.

The Beard deserves the blame

In spite of the wishful-thinking Twitter rumor started early Sunday evening, Todd "the Beard" Haley's job as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs (for now) remains in-tact.

There was plenty of vitriol and hate coming out of the Kansas City sports-scene this past weekend, and astonishingly, it had nothing to do with the full sweep of losses by the area college teams Saturday or the letdowns by the Chiefs and Sporting Kansas City Sunday.

Chiefs should go all-red all the time

One of the tidbits from Monday's thriller against the Chargers was the three Chiefs players who made the best fashion decision in Kansas City since the days of the Royals' black-trip informs in the early-2000s.

I noticed it first on wide-receiver Dwayne Bowe, then on cornerbacks Brandon Flowers and Brandon Carr.

The Beard deserves the credit

After a dismal September, checking-out on the 2011 Chiefs a little early would have been more than justified. Many of us did just that. So if you came back around for the Monday Night Miracle this week, you may have been a bit confused as to just what you were seeing — on the field and off.
