Chiefs' Todd Haley Explains Switch In Road Uniforms

Last week against the Seattle Seahawks the Kansas City Chiefs went back to their white jersey, red pants uniform combination instead of the all whites. I know a few readers have wondered why this change wasn't made sooner considering the Chiefs play on the road this season.

Todd Haley indicated on Wednesday that the switch was a superstition thing.

"I’m just trying to get something that fits at this stage of the year," Haley told reporters on Wednesday. "I’ve clearly let superstition play too much of a part of my life and I blame that on the way I was raised and having to sit in a certain seat in the car and a certain chair in the house when certain games were on."

Everyone else can admit to doing stuff like this, too. Old Man Thorman had a Chiefs shirt that he wore every single game in the '97 season. I remember it very well growing up. You remember that season? You probably thought the Chiefs won 13 regular season games because they had the No. 1 ranked defense. You would be wrong. KC won that year because Old Man Thorman wore the same 1993 Chiefs division championship shirt with an over-sized head of Joe Montana on front. Much to my Mother's dismay, I discovered that shirt in Old Man Thorman's closet recently. Nearly two decades old!

Anyway, back to Haley:

"The way we finished last year in the all white against Denver and carried that into Cleveland to start this year and I thought we were set to go and we were going to have no more worries but when those losses piled up there on the road I had to get something changed."

Well, it was a good move to get it changed considering the results. We'll find out on Dec. 12 in San Diego if this superstition-related streak can hold up.
