Hello, MHR. I know it's early in the week, but my internet is liable to disappear by this time tomorrow (more on that later) so I'll get this up early. Meanwhile, congratulations to the Broncos on their stunning and delicious win at the hands of the Raiders. Tebow AND McGahee both over 100 yards on the ground, wow! OK, everyone who actually saw that coming raise your hand. Let's see, I count one, two, three ... yup, liars, every one of ya! But this Chiefs fan, and indeed every Chiefs fan sends their eternal gratitude to the Broncos. The question now becomes this: Is there ANY team out there good enough to actually win this division?
Eternity, of course, only lasts so long, in this case about a week, which just happens to be when the Broncos come to Kansas City to face off against the up and down and all-around mystifying Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium. And that, of course, is where we at Arrowhead Pride come in, ready and able to answer (almost) any question you ask about the Chiefs, except the one that we have no answer to, namely: Who ARE those guys? Is it the team that was obliterated by both Buffalo and Detroit early in the season, or the team that made Carson Palmer look worse than Kyle Boller? The team that came from 17 points down to beat the Colts or the team that allowed the Dolphins to register their first win of the season?
We have NO clue, but it's all good because neither do you! What we DO have is time to shoot the breeze and tell you how much we either love or hate Matt Cassel and how proud or disappointed we are in our Defense, not to mention our wide range of opinions on Todd Haley's beard, which is now likely gone due to the loss. We don't care. Ask us about Haley's beard anyway, we'll give you the straight word on that and anything else Chiefs related.
Lastly, a word about my internet issues and why I may or may not be around for this week's ever so fun discussion. For those of you who live in the Denver Metro, you'll know where I am when I say Watkins, CO. Exit 295 off I-70, about 10 miles past the DIA exit, unincorporated no-man's land. Comcast goes right past us, literally ... to Bennett, Strasburg, etc, but they don't stop here. Nor does any DSL line. Thus I'm stuck with crappy wireless that's off as much as it's on, and expensive to boot. (And if anyone reading this knows of a decent rental house, click the lips and toss me some email, pronto, please!)
Also, Von Miller scares me. Anyway, let's hope for a fun, hard-hitting, injury-free football game come Sunday, and may the least lousy team win!
