Coach Herm Edwards took special care to point out the special teams discrepancies this week.
“The really scary part right now is kicking the ball (to Buffalo),” he said. “You almost want to kick it out of bounds, give them the ball on the 40 and get it over with.
Gawd I hope not. I know you have to be kidding but that's not even a funny game plan considering our history this season.Bills linebacker Kawika Mitchell, the Chiefs’ second-round draft pick in 2003, is too classy to gloat about the circumstances that led to him playing on a Super Bowl champion with the Giants last season after the Chiefs’ declined to sign him as a unrestricted free agent following the 2007 season.
“Obviously it worked out well that I was able to go contribute to a team that won the championship,” Mitchell told Kansas City reporters this week.
“I have no hard feelings. It will be fun to come back to Kansas City where I got my first opportunity, where the fans were always good to me. It’s a place I called home for four years.”
But won’t there be at least some temptation to gloat?
“I thought about that, but I’ll just play it smart,” Mitchell replied. “That doesn’t mean I won’t have my big, shiny (Super Bowl) ring on when I come to town. But I won’t rub it in.
“This is a business, and they made a business decision. But obviously mine worked out better.”
