Arrowhead - A Hornet's Nest

Hornets_nest_broken_medium

The Kansas City Chiefs in Arrowhead play like a Hornet's Nest. A solid 6-0 at home while we got our early season kinks worked out. Now we got two home games to ice a Division championship with a very young roster. Jamaal Charles, Matt Cassel, Tamba Hali, Derrick Johnson, Brandon Flowers and the rest of the Chiefs mean to turn back the Tennessee Titans on Sunday. The Tennessee Titans roll into Arrowhead this weekend expecting to roll the Chiefs right on out the playoffs. A long time ago a group of southerners rolled into Shiloh, Tennessee with the idea to roll the northerners out too. Well, it was not easy, nor quick and the early momentum shifted from the southerners to the northerners midway through the battle.

On the main Union defensive line, starting at about 9:00 a.m., men of Prentiss's and W. H. L. Wallace's divisions established and held a position nicknamed the Hornet's Nest, in a field along a road now popularly called the "Sunken Road," although there is little physical justification for that name.[30] The Confederates assaulted the position for several hours rather than simply bypassing it, and they suffered heavy casualties during these assaults—historians' estimates of the number of separate charges range from 8 to 14.[31]

The Union forces to the left and right of the Nest were forced back, and Prentiss's position became a salient in the line. Coordination among units in the Nest was poor, and units withdrew based solely on their individual commanders' decisions. This pressure increased with the mortal wounding of Wallace,[32] who commanded the largest concentration of troops in the position. Regiments became disorganized and companies disintegrated.

However, it was not until the Confederates assembled over 50 cannons[33] to blast the line at close range that they were able to surround the position, and the Hornet's Nest fell after holding out for seven hours. Surrounded on three sides, General Prentiss surrendered himself and the remains of his division to the Confederates. A large portion of the Union survivors, numbering from 2,200 to 2,400 men, were captured, but their sacrifice bought time for Grant to establish a final defense line near Pittsburg Landing.[34]

 

The Battle of Shiloh

I hate Arrow Head...
KC had to win, they out played us. Our 'O' was horrible 2 pics 2 fumbles. Just horrible. :( It is a bit of relief that we have a loss now...don't have to be so worried about "when will we get our fist loss..." and whatever. The final score was 33-19. It was a very sad game. LJ went wild rushing for about 200 yards.  Link

The Chiefs wanted it more....

Overall I thought they played well. I thought the Chiefs actually played pretty well too. I think what it came down to was that the Chiefs wanted it more and the Ravens played down to their opponent again. Let’s hope it was just a first week thing and the Ravens won’t give us these heart attack games anymore this season. Link

The Chiefs wanted it more...

I could see a 10-6 finish to this season. It does feel like the 06 season. Every aspect of todays game just looked like ****. One time they would do well, and they took a **** with the other. The chiefs wanted it more. Hopefully they will get there **** together for the Ravens, and that isnt a lock anymore. Last year the Steelers were able to put teams like this away, but not this year.  Link

The Kansas City Chiefs want it more come Sunday vs Tennessee!
